Morning Sunshine: Phoenix Suns News (March 5)

This is our daily feature here at SunNGun where we scavenge the internet for recent stories related to the Phoenix Suns organization and relay them to you, so we are the one-stop-shopping for all things Phoenix Suns. We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories. The writers at all the other blogs are good and have some interesting information and perspective, but come back here for our take and full coverage of the team.

Valley of the Suns: Matt Barnes smokes Suns in concerning 3rd quarter

“An 11-point halftime lead is never enough. Ramp up the “It’s a game of runs” cliche, which can be applied to basketball, table tennis, cornhole or what have you. The Phoenix Suns, however, found a mighty painful way to lose 104-96 against the Los Angeles Clippers. Had it not been for Matt Barnes and Blake Griffin combining for 30 points and grabbing all the confidence from the youngin’ Suns during the third quarter of the game, maybe Phoenix would have pulled it out thanks to the three other “good enough” quarters of play.”

Bright Side of the Sun: Injuries threaten to doom Phoenix Suns playoff hopes

“The Phoenix Suns weren’t supposed to be here, but they are 10 games over .500 with 22 games to play and right in the thick of a playoff race. It took a barrage of outside shooting by Matt Barnes for the Los Angeles Clippers to defeat an injury-riddled Suns team on Thursday, but a win is a win. To hear the Clippers post game, you can see the respect they have for the upstart Suns.”

NBA.com/Suns: Leandro Barbosa injury update:

“The Suns’ Leandro Barbosa sustained a left hand fracture in the first half of tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The injury will not require surgery and there is no timetable for his return.”
