The Phoenix Suns (3-4) are playing at home tonight against a good Los Angeles Clippers (5-3) team, who is coming off a a tough road loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night, in what had the feel of a revenge game with DeAndre Jordan as the target, in his first return to Dallas since agreeing to sign with the Mavs as a free agent, then waffling, and ultimately spurning them this off-season.
The Pacific Division rivals are trying to chase the Golden State Warriors who lead the pack, with the Clippers second with a 5-3 record, while the Suns are third with a 3-4 record so far this season.
Both teams are looking for victories after they dropped their last games in the league and a win over a division rival should restore their confidence moving forward in this young season.
