Word from the Arizona is Wright will be OUT..HEDO IN...Gonna fire this thing up early in about 5 minutes.
That comes straight from Matt Devlin Via Twitter.
Ok what the heck let's get this party started. This is not a game a game for lovers of D. in fact if you like defense this game may drive you insane.
Raps had a 37 point turn around coming back for down to 22...to escape L.A with a win over the Clippers.
While some Raps fans were thrilled with the win..I am not one of them. This in my view makes two straight games the Raps have tried to flip a switch on the defensive end that is not how it is done.
Steve Nash has never lost to the Raptors as a member of the Suns the second time around.
The Suns have won 10 straight in this series.
Feel free to chime in your comments or questions as we got extra time to talk some basketball because I decided to punch the clock early.
It should be entertaining tonight just as a fan of scoring. When it comes to being a Raps fan losing 10 straight to this team should say it all.
I do but not as much as fans may expect or hope.
If the Raps have a 3rd straight slow start tonight this game is over.
I got to live blog these Suns getting a big win in Boston and I walked away from that impressed with the Suns.
Frye has been a solid pick up for the Suns and is cheap on top of that. He really has been a nice fit.
Dudley is another player to watch that came along with Jason Richardson as part of the Suns Trade with the Bobcats last season.
Get your track shoes ready for this one it should be fun..Hedo enters this game with a bad hip will be interesting to see if he can keep up with what should be a very high tempo game.
Calderon matched up against Nash should be interesting as well. Not to many nights where you can say Jose will have a speed advantage but this is one of those nights.
Forget what it says on Nash's Birth Cirtificate he has been back to his MVP form this season.
both are not the greatest defenders and this match-up should be key to how this night goes.
Raptors are 5-4 and still have a back to back with Denver and Utah left on this 4 game road trip...they return home to face Miami and Orlando which will not be easy.
If the Raptors had a better record people would be talking CB4 as an MVP contender. 28 points...11.8 Rebounds and he leads the league in getting to the foul line.
Closing in on game time and it should be interesting and educational in terms of if the Raptors can play D.
There is no greater test...Suns run and gun will give you a true judge of if you are able to defend or not.
Speaking of running and gunning totally off topic but Brandon Jennings a guy Raps could have selected had 55 yesterday as a rookie.
Demar DeRozan is nice don't get me wrong think he will be very good...but Jennings is ALREADY GOOD.
It was a nice night in L.A for Marco Belinelli speaking of the bench.
MAtt Devlin says no worries anymore about Jose...I am still worried about him.
This is on TSN Deux(2) that is first and last time we will be saying that.
Nash 17.1 and 11 dimes a game....just great stuff from Canada's best ever baller.
So Nash Fans...Raps Fans get ready this one is about to get started.
It is about to get Nashty one way or the other...LOL
With the likely break neck pace of this one I ask you to be patient in terms of comments during the game. Try to chime in during the breaks in action is you best bet.
He has done that already....if you are getting here late...Hedo...IN...Wright out for the Raps.
Amare actually had some comments in the summer about being better than CB
