Lopez hurt right when he was starting to get it

October 6th, 2009 · 1 Comment

PHOENIX — It’s never a good sign when a player gets hurt in the intrasquad scrimmage, but that’s the situation the Suns face after Robin Lopez underwent surgery today to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot. The good news is that about half of the six-to-eight week timetable for his recuperation will […]

The Suns’ Achilles’ heel: Defensive rebounding

October 3rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

Amid the optimism that reigned on Media Day, to a man the Suns acknowledged what’s largely expected to be their Achilles’ heel: defensive rebounding.

Suns 133, Raptors 113 – Shaqtastic

February 28th, 2009 · 2 Comments

With Steve Nash missing another game, everyone knew Shaq needed to step up.  Nobody thought he’d step up like this. Shaq went off – to the tune of 45 points, 11 rebounds, three steals, and a block, while only missing five of his 25 shots from the field. With only Chris Bosh as a legitimate […]
