Well, considering I think Denver is a better overall team than the Suns are, I think we'll be in pretty tough tomorrow night in Denver. If Hedo isn't 100% healthy and playing, then covering Melo could pose a problem all night long. And we might not like to outcome either.

On a good note, it will also be the return of Joey Graham. Well, not exactly seeing how the game's in Denver, but this will be Joey's first chance to redeem himself against his old team.
