Suns vs Hornets: No Joking Around

Have I said that every game from last Tuesday ahead is a must-win. Granted, not a must-win in the sense that “win or be eliminated from playoff contention” but rather a must-win in the sense of “well, if you don’t want to meet OKC or San Antonio IF you get to the playoffs, it would be nice to win this”

Well, now there is no bigger must-win than a home game against the worst team in the West coming off a back-to -back. Granted, Grant Hill is out for a few weeks after a minor surgery, Steve Nash said what everyone already knew (that he wanted Phoenix to commit to improving it’s roster in order to stay) and yet everyone still managed to overreact to holy hell, and I made a April Fools Joke about him wanting a buyout (by the way, another one you can make is Marcin Gortat being out due to a nose-reduction surgery). Either way, the Suns are in a lil bit of trouble. Luckily enough, they’re facing a team that’s in full tank mode, so this should be rather easy.

The key here is of course, making shots and not letting the Hornets get inside with the surprisingly imposing front court of  Chris Kaman and Gustavo Ayon. The Suns however have been sound defensively out there, so that shouldn’t be a huge problem for the Suns.

The biggest news for today? Josh Childress is back in the rotation. Happy times are back, people!
