Time for the first game ever at the new arena!

Well, actually it's the same arena, but with a new name.

But still, the Phoenix Suns need to christen the newly named Talking Stick Resort Arena with it's first win tonight.

Starting Lineups:

Eric Bledsoe vs. Donald Sloan

Goran Dragic vs. Rodney Stuckey

P.J. Tucker vs. Solomon Hill

Markieff Morris vs. David West

Miles Plumlee vs. Roy Hibbert

Yes, P.J. Tucker is getting his first start of the season. I guess Hornacek's comment about sticking with the same unit "for now", meant only yesterday when I asked him.

Injuries:

Isaiah Thomas is out again tonight for the Suns. Hornacek said he had an MRI done, and it came back normal. Thomas is still having a problem pushing off though, so his return will be based on that improving. He mentioned Friday as being likely with two more days of rest.

George Hill (quad tear), Paul George (leg) are out for the Pacers. Roy Hibbert is playing.

Let's go!
