    Because of mechanical issues and then pilot having logged too many hours Suns never left Phoenix last night. Just arrived in Denver about 30 minutes ago.

    Jamal Murray and Gary Harris are doing the damage to the Suns with 5 and 11 points respectively.

    End of 1st quarter.

    Nuggets 34 - Suns 26

    The story is Gary Harris going 9-10 from the field for 20 points.

    Monroe has to be one of the biggest enigmas in the league. The guy definitely has some legit big man skills but he rarely has a positive impact on the game.

    Looks like Triano may have limited some players minutes last night-so he could use them more tonight.

    Good move playing in Denver on back to back.

    It could be because he is not a leaper and does not have much impact on the defensive end of the court.

    True but earlier in his career he had more lift but the same issues.

    Monroe has 8 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists for a +7.

    They always hear us. :)

    How come nobody wants to send us a pick for this guy?

    The Suns may want something better than a 2nd round pick and use his expiring contract for something better at the trade deadline.

    The Suns lead 67-61 at halftime.

    This was not expected because the Suns played last night and the Nuggets are coming off three days rest. However it may show on the Suns in the 2nd half.
