Phoenix Suns @ Los Angeles Clippers

Wednesday, Oct 28, 2009, 7:30 PM MDT
Staples Center

It's here! Finally, after a VERY long off-season the Phoenix Suns are back in live meaningful action. Tonight, as Coach Gentry said this week, they begin their quest for a 95-0 season!

And as Sun Tzu said, "A journey of a thousand miles 82 wins begins with one step game."

Step 1. Beat LA!

(Which of course totally rings hollow when it's the Clippers we are talking about who hung tough in their opener against the real LA scoundrels, 99-92)
