Suns 103, Wizards 87 – Back on track

January 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I doubt anybody in the organization would have been particularly happy about a 3-3 road trip when the Suns’ plane took off in Phoenix a week and a half ago, but considering how grim things looked as late as Sunday at 4 p.m. MST at least this trip wasn’t a complete disaster. Yes, the Suns’ effort […]

Suns 103, Wizards 87             The Suns need to make sure Friday night in Charlotte was their rock bottom point of the season. That means not losing to a Wizards team that’s 7.5 games behind the next worst team in the East. The Wizards have some nice players in Antawn […]

Phewwwww! The Suns’ fan base let out a sigh of relief that could be heard all the way from Atlanta after Phoenix held on down the stretch for once to dispatch the Hawks, 104-99, earning the team’s first road victory over a winning squad since Oct. 29 in San Antonio against the Manu Ginobili-less Spurs.

Bobcats 98, Suns 76 – Rock bottom?

January 24th, 2009 · 6 Comments

The Suns can only hope this is rock bottom, because I’m not sure how much further they can fall after being embarrassed in Charlotte of all places on Friday, 98-76. Yes, not Boston, Charlotte, a franchise that had previously never won a single game against Phoenix. The Suns trailed by as many as 25 in […]

Bobcats 98, Suns 76             Having lost four of five, the last thing the Suns need is to play another losing team with a little extra motivation to beat Phoenix after dropping one to Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks. That’s not good news since for at least two Bobcats Friday’s matchup with […]
