Quotes

We won in double overtime on our home court, so we’re not too confident.” – Duncan

We had a lot of mistakes, a lot of mistakes that if we continue to make they will hurt us.” – Finley

Every game is an adventure in itself.” – Mike D’Antoni

ESPN Preview

It is impossible to predict the score and what will happen and that is exactly the reason why this is the best series in the first round. You just don’t know who will take over the game and how. Two great teams going at each other.

There will be many adjustments made by both coaches. The Suns won’t let Duncan torch ’em again. They got Shaq and Amare…you can’t allow Timmy to get 40. On the other side, Barbosa scored 12 points in game 1 and he is the Suns X-factor tonight. He needs to be more aggressive and attack the basket hard…a figth between the reigning sixth man(u) of the year and last years winner and this years runner-up. Don’t underestimate this match-up. They both need to score more than 20 to give their team a chance at winning the game.

Tune in and enjoy the game tonight!

Edit: According to TrueHoop Dick Bavetta is calling the game tonight. Expect a lot of calls. Bavetta = Shaq (and maybe Duncan and/or Amare as well) in foul trouble.
