Game Thread: Lakers (8-1) at Suns (8-4)

November 20th, 2008 · No Comments

Lakers 105, Suns 92           Tonight’s showdown is as important as a game can be on Nov. 20, the biggest measuring stick game in a measuring stick week. The Lakers have taken over the Pacific Division in the past year, but we don’t know if they are miles ahead of the […]

Why we hate the Lakers

November 20th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Beat L A, beat L A, beat L A!

Suns 104, Pistons 86 – Shaq sets the tone

November 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Boom! That’s either the sound of Shaq slamming Rodney Stuckey to the ground or the resonance of the Suns recording their first statement win of the season, 104-86 over the Pistons in a game that was as much a blowout as the final score suggests. The Suns’ opening-night win in San Antonio lost some luster […]

November 16th, 2008 · No Comments

Suns 104, Pistons 86             It’s only November, but the Suns will face a measuring stick week in the next seven days, starting with tonight’s showdown against the Pistons. After 7-3 Detroit, the Suns face the Jazz (6-4), Lakers (7-1) and Blazers (6-4). All four should be playoff teams and […]
