It was almost a year ago that Gilbert Arenas got his revenge against Mike D'Antoni by scoring 54 points to help end the Suns 15-game winning streak. Of course, the Wizards got an assist from a Denver snowstorm, and when the Suns played the Wizards again 14 games into another long winning streak a month later, it was D'Antoni's night for revenge. The Suns ran the Wizards out of their own gym, and "held" Arenas to 31. This time around, the Suns won't have to contend with Agent Zero, who is still recovering from knee surgery, and expected to be out for a few months. But they will have to overcome their own road weariness on the fourth of a five-game trip, and third game in four nights. If Wednesday night was any indication, that shouldn't be a problem. The Wizards have won six of their 10 games since Arenas was last in the lineup, including all of their home games and a solid road win over the Mavericks. For more about the game from a Wizard fan's perspective, see Bullets Forever.

I'm going the positive thinking route and assuming that my internet connectivity issues will be resolved by this evening. Should that turn out to be the case, I will be on for live blogging. Here are the Suns serving up their own special recipe for revenge last January:
