Don't break out the champagne just yet, Phoenix Suns fans. Though Nash, Amaré, Matrix, and the rest of the gang have been doing reasonably well at rocking the Pacific Division during the first few weeks of the 2007-2008 season, that doesn't mean another trip to the NBA postseason is all locked up. Far from it. There's a long, hard road looming between now and April, with plenty of obstacles to be overcome before you Suns fans can start lining up for playoff tickets. The next task on the list is the formidable Elton Brand and his L.A. Clippers squad. The game is officially sold out. Try http://teamexchange.ticketmaster.com.
