Full disclosure.

I'll likely miss the bulk of this one live since a certain college basketball team is playing Virginia in the ACC final so I may be um...slightly distracted.

That doesn't mean though that today's Toronto Raptors - Phoenix Suns matchup though shouldn't be a beauty, one that as we discussed in the preview this morning, features two very good offensive clubs and two of the league's most surprising teams this season.

Dragic vs Lowry, Frye vs Valanciunas, DeRozan vs Tucker. And maybe we even get to see a few minutes of Suns' rookie lottery pick Alex Len!

This should be an entertaining affair for certain and perhaps a nice contrast in styles with Friday night's match. Whereas that one was a "first to 80 wins" type game, this one today could very well be "first to 110 gets the W."
