The last time the Suns faced the 76ers, it wasn't pretty. In fact, we were using terms like "Clippers fan" (sorry, Phoenix Stan, had to do it) to describe our opinion of our team's struggle to find its way in the early days of the Shaq Era. Little did we know that the Suns were just a week away from starting their second-longest winning streak of the season. That day, much like now, the Suns were coming off of an embarrassing loss. Here's hoping history doesn't repeat itself, because the Suns really can't afford another week of wavering if they want to secure a top-half seed in the playoffs.

I will be live blogging the game, but it will be sporadic at times, as I will once again have to combine cooking (and later eating) dinner with trying to both watch the game and write about it. So, everyone feel free to chime in and help me out!
