This should be a tough game for the Suns. The magic are in desperate needs of wins as they're battling for a playoff position. We on the other hand appear to be cruising to 1st place in the west. Orlando will have even extra motivation with the return of their star player Steve Francis who is returning from his three game suspension. Like usual if we want to win this game give the ball to Amare and see what he can do with it. Also we should try and give Nash limited minutes. Barbosa played very well against Miami and I think giving him 20 minutes couldn't hurt.

Prediction

Suns 117
Magic 106

Suns down 61-57 at the half. Both teams are shooting the ball very well. Both Marion and Richardson have been in foul trouble with 3 fouls, limiting their minutes. Amare has one measly field goal attempt. If the Suns are going to come back and take this one, the Suns are going to have to figure out how to get Amare the ball.

Suns squeak out the win 118-116. Sooner or later the Suns are going to have to play some defense else I don't like are chances come playoff time.

Nash had an impressive game with 23 pts, 12 assists, and 4 steals. Marion and JJ also had great games with 27 and 26 points respectively. Once again Q Rich struggled. It seems ever since he had that injury about 5 games ago he's been cold. Once again a win is a win but we're gong to have to step it up once playoffs start.

Another ginormous game by Marion. He continues to be a beast on the boards. Nash and JJ has nice games, too. Looks like the big third quarter decided the game. Twenty turnovers is too many, but a win is a win. Nice bounce back game after getting spanked in Miami. Miami lost tonight, by hte way, to Charlotte by two points.
