Here's an open thread for tonight's game. Chat away...
For more actual pre-game information see Coro, Paul.
In his pregame KTAR-AM chat with Al McCoy, Suns coach Terry Porter said he will get Leandro Barbosa some minutes tonight while holding out Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire and Alando Tucker.
He said he will play Barbosa in both halves and that Tucker's hamstring was not quite ready to go. With Nash, it's a precautionary move due to the mild ankle sprain he suffered Wednesday in Atlanta. Stoudemire apparently has to get cleared by the eye doctor before playing again. Porter said O'Neal will see first-quarter action tonight but will probably sit out the remainder of the game.
