In the preseason, the Phoneix Suns (3-2) dominated the Denver Nuggets (1-3) 98-79 in Las Vegas. Tonight, the Nuggets will look for a better result as they face the Suns in Arizona at 7 PM MT. Notes: -In the preseason matchup, Anthony Randolph scored a Nuggets-high 15 Pts. He hasn’t played in the past two games after starting the first three contests.  Jordan Hamilton  will once again replace him tonight. -Darrell Arthur, Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson didn’t play against the Suns in preseason. -Eric Bledsoe is averaging 21.0 Pts (50% FG) and 7.2 Ast for the Suns. He scored 21 Pts in the preseason game. -The Suns two losses came from the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs. They fell to the Spurs 99-96 in a nail-biter on Wednesday. -The Nuggets, the highest scoring team in the NBA of 2012-13, eclipsed 100 points for the first time last night against the Atlanta Hawks. -Last night, Brian Shaw earned his first win as a head coach beating the Hawks 109-107. - The three guard lineup of Ty Lawson, Robinson and Randy Foye combined for 10-21 3 PT FG, and fished with 51 Pts versus the Hawks . -Three pointers have been an issue for the Nuggets through the first four games. However, in last night’s game, the Nuggets shot a season high 56 percent (14-25) from beyond the arc while holding the Hawks to 30.8 percent (8-26) from three. -Against the Hawks, the Nuggets rallied from down 8 Pts in the 4th quarter.  They’ve had to rally in each game so far this season. -Robinson had 15 Pts off the bench for the Nuggets, and JaVale McGee recorded 14 Pts last night. -Through the first four games, Evan Fournier had scored 5 Pts. He turned up his offense last night scoring 12 Pts (2-3 3Pt, 5-10 FG) in 24 Min. -Chandler will again not play tonight, he’s expected to return to the lineup on Monday.
