HHH GameTime Preview: Heat take on Suns at midway point of road trip

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Game three of the Heat's lengthy road trip features the pesky Suns, who are 17-8 on their home floor.

LeBron James and Chris Bosh will try to shake off their poor performance against the Utah Jazz but will have to do so against a tougher than expected opponent.

The Phoenix Suns enter Tuesday night winners of 8 of their last 11 games. The surprising team is 30-20 and are in sixth place in the Western Conference.

LeBron had a very poor game, especially by his efficient standards, shooting just 4 of 13 for 13 points against the Jazz. Bosh wasn't much help either, also totaling 13 points by going 3 of 12 from the field. Dwyane Wade has played in six straight games, bouncing back from an 8-point game against the San Antonio Spurs to score in double figures in his last five games and led the team with 19 points in their loss against the Jazz.

The Heat have won their last five games at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix. They defeated the Suns 107-92 in their first matchup this season on November 25 at the AmericanAirlines Arena. James led all players with 35 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.

Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Emeka Okafor (back) are out of action for the Suns.
