    On Friday the Suns lost to the red hot Jazz. Now they face the Hornets in Phoenix on Sunday who have won their past two games.

    The Suns will be without Marquese Chriss after he had a rules violation which involved a Suns coach after the game.

    Make note it is an early game.

    Here is more from Scott Bordow.

    Surprised they have a game on Super Bowl Sunday. Typically other sports avoid trying to compete with the Super Bowl. I know it's an early game but the SB is an all day event nowadays.

    The same here. Even more so since the games are so close together in time.

    Bender right off the bat, puts the ball on the floor and drives around Kaminisky for the first basket of the game.

    Bender and jackson both look great early on. Though Jackson already has 2 fouls.

    Booker looks comfortable playing PG early... as good as I have seen him at this position.

    Daniels is really hot today with three 3's for 9 points.

    End of 1st quarter:

    Suns 32 - Hornets 25

    Booker is still struggling with his shooting from the field (1-5) but the Suns and Booker have played well.

    It's a shame the Suns have not gone back to Bender who has only played 7 minutes.

    Please sit Booker and let him heal up! I would rather see him drop 30 than dish 7 assists and 18 points.
