In any event, there is no snowstorm to contend with this time around and the game will most definitely be played. I usually never do this, but tonight would be a good game for you to head over to Doc’s Sports Services and place a bet against the Nuggets. I just do not see anyway possible, especially since the Nuggets will be seriously handicapped on defense and maybe offense, that Denver can win this game. Phoenix is such a tough squad and has been the winners of 36 of their last 41 games since starting out the season 3-9.
Basically this is all you need to know; Phoenix just has a ton of weapons. Leandro Barbosa is lightening in a bottle, Amare Stoudemire is a monster, Boris Diaw is about as versatile of a 6’8” player as they come not named Carmelo Anthony or Lebron James, Shawn Marion is, cough, an All-Star, Raja Bell shoots 43% from downtown, and they have this guy named Steve Nash that has won the NBA MVP two years running and also leads the league in assists. Can you say, “Scary good?” Say it with me now, “Scar-y good.”
If there ever was a time that I would gladly be wrong it would be now. Wins are becoming scarce for the Nuggets, but I just do not see this one materializing. My best advice is to “Know thy Enemy” by checking out these great Phoenix Suns blogs. See if there is any chink in the Suns’ armor that I have missed. I’m welcoming ideas as to how the Nuggets can win tonight’s game in the comment section.
Know thy Enemy,
And don’t forget to tell ‘em, The Nugg Doctor sent ya!
