Game in Exclusive Pictures: Suns vs Cavs (The Shaq Watching LeBron Show)

Surprisingly, I didn't find much humor when I looked at the game photos so we will just tell the story as it unfolds in true picture-book style for all those out there that hate to read. As always, there's some great photo's from our own Max Simbron.

Fortunately for the Suns, the Cavs played the night before in Dallas. Unfortunately, the Cavs lost and LeBron had a sub-par game.

Shaq made his return to Phoenix since being traded from the Suns to the Cavs. He's adjusted well to his new role.

Going into the game, Suns head coach Alvin Gentry said that he would try and avoid double-teaming LeBron.
