Suns Vs. Nuggets Preview: Starting Lineups, TV Schedule & More

The Phoenix Suns will have a chance to help control their own destiny on Saturday. They'll host the Denver Nuggets, who are currently ahead of them in the Western Conference standings.


The Phoenix Suns will host the Denver Nuggets on Saturday afternoon in a game with severe postseason implications. The Suns currently sit in the eighth slot in the Western Conference playoff positioning, but hold the same record as the Utah Jazz. They are 1.5 games behind Denver, the current No. 7 seed, but a win on Saturday would help their cause immensely. Phoenix will visit the Jazz on Tuesday, so these two games offer the Suns an opportunity to help control their own destiny.

Projected Lineups:

  • Point guard: Steve Nash --- Ty Lawson
  • Shooting guard: Shannon Brown -- Arron Afflalo
  • Small forward: Jared Dudley -- Danilo Gallinari
  • Power forward: Channing Frye -- Kenneth Faried
  • Center: Marcin Gortat -- JaVale McGee
  • Key subs: Suns (Sebastian Telfair, Robin Lopez, Michael Redd). Nuggets (Rudy Fernandez, Al Harrington, Chris Andersen).

Saturday's game will tip off at 2:30 p.m. Phoenix time and will be televised both locally, on FOX Sports Arizona and nationally, on ESPN. You can catch the radio broadcast on Arizona Sports 620.
