Time: 8:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSAZ, NBALP

Phew! NBA.com screwed up last night and had old info from a previous match up with today's date. The game is on! LaVert makes his comeback. Warren isn't playing as usual. Suns going for six straight.

Go Suns!!!

Hold on. I can't find anything else about a postponement of this game. An earlier Suns/Pacers game was postponed. Is it possible that nba.com screwed up here? They sure scared me and made me angry.

In fact, I found this bit of news:

"Saturday's game is a makeup of the game originally scheduled for Jan. 16 that was postponed when the league's health and safety protocols prevented the Suns from having enough available players to face the Pacers."

Remember a guy named TJ Warren? Yeah, he's been out for a long time for the Pacers. I don't miss that guy. I like my players to actually play the game on the court.

Remember when TJ was a thing last season and in the bubble. We knew the truth tho...

Pacers are tough despite being under .500. They lost last night to the Lakers so we have them on a B2B. Sabonis and Turner could give us problems up front with their versatility. Would love to see a bounce back game from DA. Brogdon is tough, McDermott can shoot it, Holiday and Lamb are streaky so don't want them getting hot and McConnell can be a pest. Can't take this team for granted. Wonder if Frank starts again and how Monty matches up with Sabonis and Turner.

Guess Caris will not make his Pacers debut if that is the case. Bumma

*** EDIT*** Actually that may be a edit screw up for the January 14th game you have there.

Yeah, they screwed up last night. I have proof. Unacceptable. Anyway, game on.

Why the 8 pm Phoenix start time? Can anybody explain that to me? Is something else going on earlier in the day in the arena? Does anything other than basketball happen in the arena?

It happened. It was real. Him being injured now just make it not count. And they gave up nothing for him.

Yup and that is a good thing. I saw the initial post of it being postponed and was bummed but looks like we are good. Hope he plays well, but not well enough to win.

Anybody? Bueller?

The only thing I can come up with is that it is daylight savings related. 8 pm tonight is 7pm in California tonight but tomorrow night it will be 7 pm both in CA and AZ at the same time.

No idea. It is a make-up-game, so maybe they did it to allow it as a potential pick up for a national game.

What’s the point of starting Kaminsky if we’re gonna get beat on the offensive glass repeatedly?
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.
