Hedo Turkoglu struggling to find his role in Phoenix

October 31st, 2010 · 22 Comments

PHOENIX — When the Phoenix Suns acquired Hedo Turkoglu, everybody knew he would be a liability defending power forwards. But the thinking went, “Sure, maybe he can’t guard many natural fours too well, but how in the world will any natural fours defend him on the perimeter?” Through three games only one of those assumptions […]

Portland Trail Blazers 106, Phoenix Suns 92 — Offensively bad fourth

October 27th, 2010 · 17 Comments

(Video by ValleyoftheSuns’ Mike Schmitz) When Steve Nash finished off a nifty three-point play with 5:43 remaining in the game to put Phoenix up three, the Phoenix Suns and Portland Trail Blazers appeared to be headed to a classic opening-night finish. I’m not sure what exactly happened next, but it certainly wasn’t Phoenix Suns basketball […]

Hakim Warrick should be the Phoenix Suns’ starting power forward, not Hedo Turkoglu

October 23rd, 2010 · 20 Comments

All of the dollar signs, egos and overall skills validate Hedo Turkoglu starting for the Phoenix Suns. The 6-foot-10 multi-skilled forward will make more this season than every Suns player not named Steve Nash or Jason Richardson — $10,215,850 million. Turkoglu also started 301 of his last 305 games, and didn’t exactly do an admirable […]

Phoenix Suns struggle from the floor but still eke out win over the Golden State Warriors

October 20th, 2010 · 1 Comment

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns will eventually shoot the ball. Or at least that’s the mantra they keep repeating after surviving another poor shooting performance to defeat the even more inept Golden State Warriors, 92-87. This was far from your typical Suns-Warriors shootout with the Suns shooting 37.8 percent from the field and 20.8 percent […]

Phoenix Suns drop second straight to Utah Jazz

October 14th, 2010 · 9 Comments

Although Thursday night’s contest was played indoors, unlike the Suns’ Oct. 10 preseason victory over Dallas, Phoenix sure seemed to let it rain in the second game of the team’s home and home series with the Jazz. The Suns fired up 21 three-pointers but only connected on six en route to a second consecutive loss […]
