I’ve gotta say I’m really relived that Sheeds suspension came on one of the three games against below .500 teams on this road trip. I just hope that he doesn’t get two techs in the next 3 games, or that means another suspension for either the Suns or Mavericks game. I’m gonna start praying tonight cause if that happens, my TV is going to be broken from me throwing my remote control at it.
