Phoenix Suns 120, Portland Trail Blazers 106 — Streak busted

November 27th, 2013 · 15 Comments

PHOENIX– The Portland Trail Blazers have officially found their kryptonite in 2013-14. It wasn’t Carmelo Anthony’s one-man show, the Golden State Warriors’ up-tempo offense, the Brooklyn Nets’ cavalcade of aging stars or Tom Thibodeau’s stingy half court defense.

PHOENIX — Playing hard hasn’t been the problem. Neither has a lack of depth or talent. Sure, there have been deficiencies on both sides of the floor, but overall, the Phoenix Suns have had no problem playing their way through the first 47 minutes of a contest.

Third-year pro P.J. Tucker poised to handle his ‘veteran’ status

P.J. Tucker has been a lot of things during his basketball career: a Big 12 Player of the Year, an NBA wash out, an international success story, a spark plug and a defensive bull dog. In 2013-14, he’ll add another title to his long-winded resume. Elder statesman. Outside of Channing Frye (30) and Marcin Gortat […]
