Official Suns Game Notes

When was the last time you were excited to see the Grizzlies on the other side of the floor? Let me think....

...nope. I couldn't come up with anything either. At least since the Grizz were last in the playoff's in 04. But quite honestly there weren't exactly interesting then. Just kind of good.

That makes this game a(n) HISTORIC EVENT!

Da Bears are coming to town with a pack of young cubs including three rookie starters (Gasol, Arthur and Mayo) along with young up-and-comers Rudy Gay and Mike Conley.

This all leads to yet another game for the Suns against a younger team (I am sensing a trend here) with dynamic wing players and not much in the way of front court threats.

The difference from the last two games is that Iveroni isn't going to want to muck the game up by putting Amare on the line 56 times. That means that Amare might just score 73 points.

Good thing that Matt Barnes is back. He and Grant will have their hands full with Mr. Gay and they will likely be needed to help carry the 2nd unit to prevent a Dragic beat down at the hands of Lowry, Conley and/or Crittenton.

Should be a fun game.
