The Phoenix Suns (3-4) are playing at home tonight against a good Los Angeles Clippers (5-3) team, who is coming off a a tough road loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night, in what had the feel of a revenge game with DeAndre Jordan as the target, in his first return to Dallas since agreeing to sign with the Mavs as a free agent, then waffling, and ultimately spurning them this off-season.
This is the second time in the young NBA season that Phoenix has faced the other team in L.A., having lost a relatively close game to the Clippers on the road in their first match-up, thanks in great part to a disastrous second quarter that saw the Suns lose an eight-point first quarter lead and dig a hole that they fought the rest of the game trying to dig back out of.
If nothing else, the Suns showed they can definitely play with the Clippers, and at times looked like the better team. However, the Suns have been plagued by inconsistency thus far, as players vary greatly from one game to the next, so it's difficult to know just which version of the Suns is going to be playing.
So far, the Suns have looked mostly mediocre. But this team had hopes of being much more than that. If they are going to reach their potential, they need to start winning games against quality opponents. Tonight would be a good time to start.

Tyson Chandler vs. DeAndre Jordan
This is the perfect time for the Suns to out-shine a tired Clippers team coming off a loss last night in Dallas. That game went down to the wire for the Clippers, and most of their starters played big minutes. The Suns, on the other hand, are very well rested having not played since Sunday. Phoenix has very good depth with their young and talented bench, and tonight would be a great time to prove it by outlasting the Clippers in a home game that would boost morale in the locker room, as well as the confidence of the fans.
Suns win! 108-99
