Tuesday night in Phoenix, the Suns got off to a 12-0 lead against the defending NBA champs, minus Dwyane Wade who missed the game while dealing with a migraine. Following their hot start, LeBron James gave Phoenix a migraine posting 37 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 steals. The Suns managed to hold a 3 point halftime lead behind 10 first half points each from Dragic and Tucker. In the end, the Heat took the victory 103-97. Phoenix’s leading scorer was Gerald Green with 26 in a game that showed how tough the Suns are. Although it was still a loss, the Suns have no reason to hang their heads after keeping Miami on their heels through most of the game. The Suns have a lot to look forward to following the All-Star break with a rejuvenated line up and the return of Eric Bledsoe looming.
