Time: 7:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSA/NBALP

Here we go, folks! Phoenix Suns opening night is finally here. Let’s see how the new look Suns come out of the gate. We basically need this one as our upcoming opponents are top tier. Can’t get too high or too low no matter the outcome though.

Go Suns!!!

And if we can do that pattern all year, I’ll be pretty happy.

No Cam or Jerome tomorrow...guess we know what our 10 man rotation will be game 1.

Sacramento is going to be a much improved team this year, I think. I can see us dropping this game, but there's no shame in that. I think we'll take a few weeks to get used to all our new pieces, new coach, new system. I will still watch excitedly.

Cam Johnson already injured. Somethings transfer over immediately from the college game :roll: let’s hope he doesn’t take the TJ Warren approach to being sore.

He missed 10 games in 4 years...not sure the always hurt claim is true.

I think this game has a very high possibility of being ugly for the Suns.

Both of our rookies are out. I wanted to see Ty in a real game. Oh well. Will settle for Rubio and Saric.

The Kings anouncers and reporters are basically dismissing the Suns and said they should win by double digits. In fact, they would be extremely disappointed if it was closer. They've already chalked this up as a win and are looking to game 2. Think the Suns are trash.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Suns lost big in preseason to them.

We’ve got them right where we want them. You can believe me that I’m recording that King’s broadcast. I hope to hear them eat crow.

I think the Kings are the most likely team in the West to jump into the playoffs. They're also a bad matchup for the Suns.

Fox should handle Rubio well. Rubio's veteran saavy should help, but he's really not a match for Fox at this point in his career.
Hield and Booker are fairly even head to head.
Barnes and Oubre are also about the same, but they occupy different roles within their own team.
Bagley is miles ahead of any PF on the Suns roster.
Ayton is better than Dedmond, but Dedmond is the type of guy that exposed Ayton last season with toughness and hustle.

I think the benches are pretty even. Bridges, Tyler Johnson, and Baynes are the only real threats off of the bench for the Suns with Cam Johnson out. The Kings have Bogdanovich, Bjelica, and Homes off of their bench. I don't think Ariza will play.

Compare the coaching and roster turnover for the Suns to the Kings familiarity and I think that is an advantage for the Kings.

TL;DR: Fox>Rubio. Bagley>>>Any PF. Kings continuity>Suns new start.

Kings 118 - Suns 111

I can't see them completely benching Ariza.

I'm assuming his back is still hurt, but I think they'll play him if he's cleared.

I'll actually be in Sacramento tonight for work. Hoping it will make it easy to catch the game!
