(Sort of) Interesting facts:

► In their last two games the Suns received 252 points, and the Nuggets and the Jazz are both accountable for exactly half of those points (126). However, the Suns are apparently going to focus on their defense. That should work.

► The Suns have a few winnable games (Vs. Memphis, Vs. Sacramento, @ Portland, @ Seattle) before their schedule tightens again (Vs. Houston, @ Detroit, @ Boston, Vs. Denver) in late March, so they need to win as many as many as possible now if they want to keep that playoffs spot secure.

► Phoenix is allowing 113.2 points per game since Shaq has joined the lineup while going 3-6, including four losses in its last five.  If you want to know more on Kerr's impending seppuku, check out Hollinger's article.

► Our last game against the Suns was a win for the good guys (that would be us). Manu had 19 points on 3-14 FG (and 12-12 FT), Duncan had 16 points (7-16) and Vaughn was 6-15 from the field and had 17 points... and we still won 84-81, despite TP's absence because of his ankle injury. So take heart, fellows.

► And to start on the right foot, something tells me you guys are going to remember this one:



► Next games for the Spurs:
   → @ Phoenix - Sunday 9/Mar - TODAY
   → Vs. Denver - Monday 10/Mar
   → @ New Orleans - Wednesday 12/Mar
   → @ Detroit - Friday 14/Mar
   → @ Philadelphia - Saturday 15/Mar
   → Vs. Boston - Monday 17/Mar
