There are moments in an NBA season that you store in the memory banks for the turn around match up. Earlier this season in January Phoenix played at Brooklyn and seemed destined for a competitive second half. They had a lead at halftime and had played about as well as a road team could. Then came the third quarter and things unraveled in embarassing fashion. Phoenix which had a seven point lead at halftime, burned that away as Brooklyn went on a 24-6 run.

It was one of the worst second halfs of any team in the season, and the Suns scored just 26 points. Alvin Gentry’s walking papers probably started getting drafted that night.

This time around I think the Suns will have a little payback on their minds. Though Brooklyn covered last night and have been playing solid basketball, this is one of those underdog opportunities I like.

Take the 5.5 points which may move to 6 by game time.
