Phoenix Suns practice report: game day against the NBA's best

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

Miles Plumlee talks about what it will be like to face his former team.

The Phoenix Suns had a shoot around on Wednesday as they prepared for their second nationally televised game of the season against the Pacers at US Airways Center.

Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee will be facing their old team.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek told the media he would like to stick with his typical rotation, but if it's not going well we could see them go to smaller lineups to pull Indiana center Roy Hibbert away from the basket (ed note: just like Dave predicted this morning!).

Here are some quotes from Miles Plumlee on facing Indiana for the first time.

Plumlee on what he learned last season: "The only way I could evaluate was by my personal growth and I thought I grew as a player and improved.  Everything else was out of my control and I was just happy to be apart of a winning team."

What he learned playing against Roy Hibbert in practice: "It helps a lot, just like it probably helps him against me. You know each other tendencies so it makes the game a little more interesting it's not a one-time matchup.

What experiences he took from being with the Pacers last season: "I think in college there isn't that level of post play. To see some of the best in the league and getting to watch them night in and night out helped me a lot. The stuff I'm working on here I know what it's supposed to feel like."

An otherwise quiet day from Suns shoot around.  That wraps things up; game is at 8:30 PM tonight and is nationally televised on ESPN. Dave King will be covering the game live at the arena.

If anything interesting comes from after Pacers shoot around I'll have some quotes from that in a little bit.
