    Before the Suns visit Denver on Wednesday they play the Hawks at home on Tuesday night in back-to-back games.

    The Hawks game might be the most winnable game before the Suns enter a long stretch of twelve games that include @Denver, @San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Houston, Indiana, @Portland, @Denver, @Milwaukee, @Indiana, New York Knicks, @Houston and @Memphis on the road.

    Below is a game update from Scott Bordow. The update is included in excellent article by Bordow that discusses the trade deadline, Booker playing point guard plus thoughts on Chriss, Bender, Reed and Jackson.

    See link below.

    We will beat the Hawks but lose to the Rockets--with or without Harden.

    Atlanta is having a bit of surge and this is the start of a roadtrip so they'll probably come out with energy. They are a slightly better team than we are, according to my stats - about enough to counter the home floor advantage. Up until this surge they've shown a definite knack for losing close ones. Expect a close game.

    See, this is where I want to see a 20 point+ Suns win. I know they can beat bad teams- they've proven that over and over. Now I want to see them destroy a bad team.

    Jared Dudley (illness) not with team tonight. Uncertain if he'll make Denver-San Antonio road trip

    Suns look unfocused early against the Hawks and trail 14-9. It leads to a timeout.

    Ulis threw a long bounce pass which lead to a turnover.

    If the Suns lose tonight it does not get easier... in fact a lot worse.

    Makes me feel at least a little better if I repeat that three times after every Hawks basket.

    Ulis is trying to help the best he can.

    He is lottery protection.

    Halftime:

    Suns 49 - Hawks 48

    The Suns had trailed by 14 points in the first half.
