Game Thread: Phoenix Suns vs Houston Rockets

This is a game that should put the Suns back on the right track.  I think this for two reasons:

  1.  The Rockets are a good team so the Suns will bring their A game.
  2.  The Rockets have Yao Ming and he can't run with Amare Stoudemire.
I'm predicting a 15 point win.  Will it happen?  Who knows but that's what I think it will be.  The Suns need to push the ball, play the game they know they can play and take the ball inside to let Amare pound on Yao.  Especially in the 3rd and 4th quarter when Yao gets tired.

This is a warm-up game for Wednesday but I don't think the Suns will be looking past Houston.  If anything, they'll use this as a launch-pad for Wednesday's game.

What do you think?  Let me know in the comments.

Editor's Note: I screwed up. I thought it was an away game. But it's a home game. So there are only two reasons why the Suns will win. Sorry about that!
