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 posted for you 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.
“Quite unfortunately for the Mavericks, Phoenix (47-32) has greatly overachieved, whizzing well past LVH’s preseason betting line of 19.5 wins. Clearly, the Suns and first-year coach Jeff Hornacek had us all bamboozled. They enter the final five days of the regular season locked in a three-way race with Dallas and Memphis for the final two playoff spots in the West, with even an outside shot of catching No. 6 Golden State. For the Mavericks, the seeding scenarios remain convoluted, but the bottom line is if they defeat Phoenix at home on Saturday night, they clinch a playoff spot.”
“The Grizzlies used a third-quarter burst to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 117-95 on Friday night, then checked on the Phoenix-San Antonio game when they adjourned to the locker room. “Before we came in the locker room they were already talking about it,” Memphis guard Tony Allen, who scored 15 points, said of his teammates. “The guys had it on their phones.”
“During Friday’s win over the Suns, Danny Green was feeling it. He had hit 10 of his 13 attempts from the field to this point in the game, and the Spurs had fought all the way back from an early deficit of 21 points. So, he decided to let one fly — an ill-advised three early in the shot clock that clanked off the iron. It was a rare heat check for a Spurs player, and it didn’t go unnoticed by Popovich.”
