The Phoenix Suns have struggled in the early portions of this season, and a lack of a proven star has been evident from day one. Fortunately for coach Alvin Gentry, he and his team have two games this weekend to try and right the ship.
On Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET, Phoenix heads to Los Angeles to take on Blake Griffin and the Clippers. L.A. is off to a strong start this year, posting a 12-6 record. They've also won eight of their 11 homes games. The following day, the Suns return home to U.S. Airways Center to welcome the Orlando Magic. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
Around the rest of the league, the Heat will look to rebound from an embarrassing loss to the Knicks as they welcome in the New Orleans Hornets. That game is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night. Another game to keep an eye on is Celtics vs. 76ers in Boston. Those two teams took it to overtime on Friday night when they met in Philadelphia.
In what promises to be Sunday's best game, the Nuggets and Knicks meet at Madison Square Garden for what should be an offensive shootout. On Sunday evening, the Lakers and Jazz square off at 9:30 p.m. ET.
