TNT has decided that their national audience would rather watch the Dallas Mavericks play the New York Knicks instead of tonight's Phoenix Suns (33-29) home game against the Denver Nuggets (37-27). Go figure. The game will be broadcast locally on Fox Sports Arizona Plus, full channel details available on the FSN AZ web site.
The Suns aren't catching many breaks from the teams ahead of them in the standings, so with 20 games remaining they are going to have to do it the old fashion way -- winning.
The new look Nuggets come to town sporting Wilson Chandler and Raymond Felton in place of Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups. You would think that would be a down grade, but so far the Nuggets are 4-2 since the trade and that's without Danilo Gallinari who is still out with a broken toe. The Nuggets are also projected to be without starting guard Arron Afflalo (hamstring) and Melvin Ely (ankle). Denver hasn't played since Saturday, a loss to the LA Clippers.
The game tips at 8:30 p.m. local time on Fox Sports Arizona Plus and will be broadcast on Sports 620 radio. Fans can follow along during the game with other Suns fans at the live game thread at Bright Side of the Sun.
