WHO: Phoenix Suns (23-18) at Atlanta (26-16)
Injury Report: Al Horford is out, continuing my ever growing separation anxiety. Acie Law is a game time decision. Steve Nash is a game timer too, but I expect him to play and to play well.
For Entertainment Purposes Only: Atlanta -2.5, 211 o/u
Blogging With the Enemy: Bright Side of the Sun
Thanks to blog night 2k9, I will be live blogging from the Highlight Factory in the game thread. Feel free to join the conversation to lampoon my observations or just to inform me that Domenique is fairly sure the last shot was a "heat check" or "a dagger" has just been delivered.
The Suns are in their second to last game of the team's longest road trip. Add to that a late afternoon Sunday start and Steve Nash's bad back and everything seems to point to an easy Hawk win. I, of course, refuse to believe such optimistic signs.
However, I am always excited to see Shaq live and in person though, and I plan to let you know at least four times that I cannot believe how big that man is.
Also, after a full year of regret over my wardrobe choice for last year's blog night, dignity will again take its rightful place at home, and I will be attending tonight's event in my Al Hoford jersey.
Go Hawks and see you in the comments.
