Game Thread: Suns (28-21) at 76ers (25-24)

February 9th, 2009 · 15 Comments

76ers 108, Suns 91             The Suns will continue their search for consistency in the City of Brotherly Love. I bring that up because following two nice wins now would be the time for the Suns to put up a clunker if they follow their last month’s path. Phoenix hasn’t […]

Barnes struggling off the bench

January 13th, 2009 · No Comments

41, 41, 38, 37, 32. Those were the minutes the Suns’ starters played Sunday against the Clippers, the type of time I’d expect in Los Angeles only if Phoenix was facing the Lakers. Leandro Barbosa led Suns reserves with 10 points and 19 minutes, but that was about all the positive contributions off the bench […]

Pacers 113, Suns 110 – Another buzzer beater

The Suns played 11:59.1 seconds of quality defense in the fourth quarter to storm ahead after trailing by as many as 16 points earlier in the half and 11 halfway through the quarter. But that all went for naught when another defensive breakdown in the final nine tenths of a second gave Danny Granger a […]

Suns 106, Clippers 98 – Easing up on the pedal

Suns 101, Grizzlies 89 – LB to the rescue

December 31st, 2008 · No Comments

Leandro Barbosa will never be confused with a prototypical NBA point guard, but his second-half scoring burst propelled the Suns to a 101-89 win over Memphis. Barbosa scored 11 points in the third and 11 more in the fourth as part of a season-high 28-point evening that broke Memphis’ back. The Grizzlies are probably wondering […]

Bulls 100, Suns 83 – No help for Amare

November 8th, 2008 · No Comments

In hindsight I’m glad I wrote about how well the Suns’ offense performed in its first five games before Friday’s contest in Chicago because those stats won’t be so shiny when Phoenix wakes up Saturday morning. The offense that was a well-oiled machine through five games sputtered its way to a 100-83 loss that was […]
