Phoenix is in the midst of a pretty hellacious road trip – Detroit, Boston, Philly, New Jersey – and is coming off a tough loss against the Pistons. (If you listen closely, you can hear D’Antoni still whining about the officiating.)
Boston, meanwhile, basically has first place and home court throughout the postseason on lock.
It’s not a stretch to say that the Suns are the more desperate ballclub coming into tonight’s game, and I expect it to show.
Most eyes will be on the KG/Amare matchup tonight, and rightfully so. I find it particularly amusing that Stephon Marbury is largely responsible for having turned this into one of the most intriguing rivarlies in the entire League. And people say that Steph is irrelevant. Nonsense!
