February 4th, 2009 · No Comments

Warriors 124, Suns 112             Matt Barnes will return to the scene of his greatest NBA success trying to rediscover his shooting stroke from the first part of this season when the Suns visit the Warriors tonight. Barnes, a Northern California native, “made it” in the NBA after a two-year stint with […]

Suns 103, Wizards 87 – Back on track

January 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I doubt anybody in the organization would have been particularly happy about a 3-3 road trip when the Suns’ plane took off in Phoenix a week and a half ago, but considering how grim things looked as late as Sunday at 4 p.m. MST at least this trip wasn’t a complete disaster. Yes, the Suns’ effort […]

Bobcats 98, Suns 76 – Rock bottom?

January 24th, 2009 · 6 Comments

The Suns can only hope this is rock bottom, because I’m not sure how much further they can fall after being embarrassed in Charlotte of all places on Friday, 98-76. Yes, not Boston, Charlotte, a franchise that had previously never won a single game against Phoenix. The Suns trailed by as many as 25 in […]

Suns 107, Hawks 102 – ‘I think we’re here now’

January 14th, 2009 · No Comments

The Suns never make things easy, do they? This game sure had the feel of a rout when Leandro Barbosa hit a pair of shots to open the second quarter that put the Suns up by 19, but (surprise!) the Suns let the Hawks back in to make for a competitive second half before they […]

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 […]
