Two of the top teams in the Western Conference get together on Wednesday night as the Phoenix Suns host the Houston Rockets. The Rockets started fast but have slipped recently while the Suns are playing well, having won two straight.
The Phoenix Suns begin the 2008-2009 season in the same place that last season ended, at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. The Spurs eliminated the Suns in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs last season four games to one.
The San Antonio Spurs don’t want to give the Phoenix Suns any hope and will try and close them out on Tuesday night in Game #5 of their best of seven series. “We know that winning a Game 6 there is going to be really tough. If we don’t, then Game 7 we know is a lottery,” Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said.
The Phoenix Suns may be in a desperate situation down 0-2 to the San Antonio Spurs but they still seem confident heading into game three on Friday night in Phoenix. Many fans seem ready to abandon ship but head coach Mike D’Antoni believes in his team.
The Phoenix Suns will try and bounce back from a heart-breaking loss in game one to the San Antonio Spurs as the teams meet for game two on Tuesday night. The Suns had the Spurs on the ropes a few times in game number one but couldn’t put them away and ended up losing in double overtime. “We didn’t catch a bullet,” Phoenix head coach Mike D’Antoni said. “They dodged a bullet.”
