One more game. For all the marbles....ok, maybe just to save our marbles from rattling around the head and hurting something important.
As for the game itself, its the Portland Trailblazers who have the honor of coming into town to face a Suns team that will either:
Which will it be? Roll the dice, turn the tarot cards or just watch the tube and find out like the rest of us.
- Grant Hill will rest up his man-parts for the battles to come
- In a slightly bizarre move that I don't really understand, the Suns re-sign CP3 Stopper The Lint Man
- I have an unconfirmed rumor that Amare might not play tonight...still working my "sources" (aka my keyboard) to see what's up. Stay tuned
- Live blogging here tonight starting sometime before the game and featuring a special guest from the Great Blazers blog - Blazer's Edge
Update [2008-4-16 16:49:22 by Phoenix Stan]:
When in doubt about anything always ask Paul Coro...here's the scope on the seedings and homecourt advantage, Amare's illness and Lint Man:
If Phoenix beats Portland at home and Utah wins at San Antonio, there is a four-way tie. The tiebreaker makes Phoenix the No. 4 seed and Houston the No. 5, but the league informed the teams this morning that Houston would have home-court advantage...
The Suns will have another player available tonight after re-signing Linton Johnson this morning. Johnson, a versatile swingman, played two 10-day contracts for Phoenix earlier this season.
Johnson will be on the playoff roster but likely will remain on the inactive list unless there is an injury, particularly in Hill's case.
Update [2008-4-16 17:5:46 by Phoenix Stan]:
Wondering how Coach is going to handle the news of Amare's illness, Grant's injury and the greatly reduced chance of homecourt advantage?
