Suns vs Lakers Preview: Lose A Must-Win, Win a May-Lose


The Suns should’ve won with the Nuggets. That is all. Meanwhile, they let Andre Miller murder them. Granted, they were coming into a hostile arena, higher altitude on a two game roadie, but it doesn’t excuse blowing leads and going empty in the final two minutes.

Tonight, the Lakers, having acquired point guard Ramon Sessions come into town hoping to do some damage to the Suns. Both teams are on “traveling” back-to-backs, and the only Suns advantage, except for Steve Nash that is, comes with the home court.

Yes, these Lakers have been quite bad this season at home, and the Suns capitalized on this in their last meeting at the US Airways Center. But with Grant Hill, the resident Kobe stopper out for this one, one must wonder whether the Suns have a shot. And to have a shot, they’ll need their offence to come out guns blazing tonight.

The Suns lost a must-win in Denver yesterday… Today, they have to win a may-lose. That’s how the NBA works.
