Weve never wanted to be fair-weather fans, but there comes a time when logic demands contingency plans. Thats why were suggesting that fading basketball followers of the Phoenix Suns begin to find another team to root for after the Suns nigh-inevitable first-round playoff exit.
Phoenix will host a team that purple-and-orange devotees may find themselves cheering for -- the Denver Nuggets. Thats because Denver appears to be the only team in the Western Conference capable of taking down the Lakers. More importantly, the Nuggets play the sort of high-scoring basketball that Suns fans love. In fact, even if you cant root for another team, you might enjoy tonights game simply because two of the leagues highest scoring teams will be going at it.
