Phoenix Suns Schedule: Early Sunday Meeting With Blake Griffin's Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers are a dangerous team, far more so then their reputation and record (27-43) would indicate. The Phoenix Suns found that out once already this season when they went into Staples Center and got beat by Blake Griffin's fresh new team on December 26.

The Suns feel like they are a good team when healthy and having Channing Frye back from shoulder injury and Steve Nash at least playing better even if he's not fully recovered from his pubic symphysis injury. 

"I feel the same as I felt in New Orleans," Nash said after Friday night's win over the Warriors, "I feel much better after the injury but still not 100 percent."

Nash, a part owner of the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps, flew to Canada for the team's opening game on Saturday. He managed to squeeze in the appearance between the Suns games on Friday and Sunday. 

The Clippers are also hopeful that getting one of their key players back from injury will help them as well. Steve Perrin from Clips Nation points out that the Clippers are 7-17 without guard Eric Gordon and 15-5 in 20 games he's played. Gordon returned to the lineup last night from a wrist injury and scored 29 points against the Cavaliers.

The game tips at 12:30 p.m. local time on My45 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.
