Game Thread #22: Phoenix Suns vs Sacramento Kings

The Phoenix Suns try to continue their win streak tonight against the Sacramento Kings.  The Kings are coming off a win in Utah and the Suns are coming off a near loss against the Warriors after having a 25-point lead.  I would have liked to see the starters get some rest last night so they could be fresh for tonight's game  But sometimes that's just not possible.

For the second night in a row, the Suns are playing a team that will have confidence after winning on a last second shot.  My biggest hope is that the Suns can put the Kings to bed early and make this a fun night.

Here are my keys to the game:

  1.  Don't let Bibby beat you - If you let Bibby get hot it makes the game a lot more difficult to win.
  2.  Don't let Artest get in your head - Ron Artest scares me because you just never know what he's going to do.  He only shot 33% against Utah but if he starts getting in the Suns' heads, it could cause problems.
  3.  Keep focused the entire game - This seems to be a major problem for the Suns lately.  If they can stay focused the entire game, maybe they can get a double-digit lead and keep it for the rest of the game.
What do you think?  Anything I missed?
