Suns vs. Cavaliers @ 7:00

I won’t be able to watch tonight’s game but here’s a look at what I’m expecting, and hoping, to happen.

First things first, the Cavs currently sit at 4-5 but have lost 3 of their last 4. The Suns were have won 2 of 3, with the loss being that dreadfully close game against the Lakers. 
Although the Cavaliers are not a fantastic team, they are already much better than they were last year. They have the potential to beat us, especially considering both games the Suns played against them last year were very close contests.

Both teams have had a day of rest, although the Suns, of course, have the advantage of playing at home.

Second, and most important, Michael Redd is set to make his debut with the Phoenix Suns tonight. He may not see a ton of minutes at first, but Alvin Gentry has said that while it won’t be immediate, Redd could eventually start sometime down the road. 

I’m very interested and excited to see what he can bring to this Suns team. At this point, I certainly don’t think that he can do anything to harm the team and that’s a positive. 

Happy almost Friday, folks.

Here’s to a big Suns win! 

UPDATE:
 

I like ^this a lot. Grant Hill is definitely playing too much and I think that’s part of the reason his play has not been up to par. He’s still recovering his knee, and playing too many minutes certainly isn’t helping.
