Official Suns Game Notes

A must win game in week 2 of the season? No. But this is still a game that we would all feel much better winning. Coming home from the road trip 3-1 would be quite nice indeed while 2-2 against 4 non-playoff teams changes the tone entirely.

Fortunately, this is a very winnable a game against yet another young team in rebuild mode without (maybe) their star shooter Redd who is day-to-day with an ankle.

Game Thoughts on a Saturday Morning After a Friday Night that Left me with a Headache

  • Going straight to the bullets because they are easier then my otherwise poetic prose. Let's hope the Suns give more effort them I am
  • Bogut for all his stiffiness is a guy that gave the Suns small front line problems last year pre Shaq. He played 25 minutes last night while Shaq looked quite pleased with himself on the sidelines in this natty suit. Advantage Suns
  • We missed Richard Jefferson in East Rutherford but catch up with him tonight. I don't exactly follow the Bucks but my guess is that he packed up his quite awesome game when he made the move to Wisconsin. Stop RJ and Save the World
  • Amare vs. the Hairless Forward (was that cruel?) - this is exactly the kind of game were Amare Sun Tzu benefits from playing his natural position. CNuv is a decent player with range but he's no match for the Chinesse War Lord and let's Amare play his game instead of trying to keep Big Bogut off his ass in the paint
  • Young Bucks - Joe the Dunker, Luc Mbah a Moute and Ramon Sessions all bring a fresh look to the north country but they shouldn't really present too many problems for the wily Suns vets - Diaw, Hill and Bell (and hopefully Barnes)
  • Bucks played last night as well - losing the World NBA Champs
  • Say it with me now - turnover's lose games. Limit turnovers. Win the boards. Play hard. Win.
