Lakers 102, Suns 96 — Beat-en by LA

March 12th, 2010 · 10 Comments

PHOENIX — In many respects Friday’s game against the Lakers felt like a playoff game. Heck, that notion was even written on the whiteboard in the Suns’ locker room before the game. With Los Angeles being in town on a Friday night, the fans were jacked up during pregame introductions and the Suns started the […]

Suns 101, Nuggets 85 — Zoned out

March 2nd, 2010 · 12 Comments

PHOENIX — Excruciating losses to the Spurs are still commonplace, but times are a changing for the Phoenix Suns.

October 10th, 2009 · 7 Comments

The first rule of preseason games is don’t take much stock in preseason games.

Amare ‘ahead of schedule’ after preseason victory

October 7th, 2009 · 2 Comments

PHOENIX — Suns fans got their first taste of 2009-10 Phoenix Suns basketball, and all in all Phoenix’s 111-80 victory over Belgrade Partizan was a rusty performance that had its moments. Considering Steve Nash missed the game with a chest cold, the offense’s occasional sputtering was understandable, especially because the team exploded for 71 points […]
