In the first of only four home games in December, the Suns will take on the Miami Heat tonight at the US Airways Center. When the Suns played the Heat in early November, Dwyane Wade wasn't in the lineup. He'll be there this time, fresh off a 35 point, 10 assist performance against the Clippers. That may be the only thing fresh about the Heat, though. This will the last of a six-game road trip, in which they will have played all six games in the span of nine days. In other words, they face an even nastier scheduling situation than the Suns had on Saturday. The Suns are 6-1 against the Heat in the Steve Nash era, sweeping them each of the past two seasons and winning in Miami last month.
I have to work late tonight and will have to watch the game after the fact on DVR. SueB has graciously offered to fill in for the live blogging, so check back here during the game for her commentary. In the meantime, here's a YouTube in need of some updating. Steve Nash vs. Dwyane Wade, probably put together by a Heat fan. Some nice plays from both players, but it only shows Nash from his Dallas days because "he would win automatically" otherwise. (A bit of mild profanity in the music, by the way, so mute the volume if you want to avoid that).
