Gamethread: Phoenix Suns (30-20) host Miami Heat (35-14)

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Suns are missing Eric Bledsoe, while the HEAT are missing Dwyane Wade. Sounds even to me.

Seriously though, it's an uphill battle for the Phoenix Suns to win this game. It helps that one of their weapons is unexpectedly out tonight.

Pregame quotes:

Hornacek:

  • "You would think so [that the team would be amped to play Heat], but this morning it didn't necessarily seem like it. It seemed like another game."
  • "We're just going to play it pretty much straight and if LeBron gets his numbers then he gets them."
  • "As long as we can neutralize some of the other players that go out there and not let them have big games we feel we have a chance."

Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra:

  • (on what challenges the Suns present to the Heat) "The speed. The quickness. The tempo at which they play. Dragic really pushes it. They push it at every opportunity."
