Notes: Lopez back on track, Suns finding their roles, and Bell returns to Phoenix (again)

October 13th, 2010 · 1 Comment

PHOENIX — While Tuesday’s loss to the Jazz left plenty unsettled for the 2010-11 Suns, it also put a number of positives on display. For starters, center Robin Lopez is looking strong and aggressive on offense, showing no signs  of hesitation after rehabbing a bulging disk in his back. Lopez continues to wear some sort […]

Sole survivor: Only Steve Nash remains from the Phoenix Suns of old

July 18th, 2010 · 14 Comments

Over the past six seasons, the Phoenix Suns have seen plenty of change. Three head coaches, a revolving door of general managers until Steve Kerr stuck for three years and draft picks coming and going, booming and busting.

Bobcats 98, Suns 76 – Rock bottom?

January 24th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Game Thread: Suns (23-17) at Bobcats (17-25)

January 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

Bobcats 98, Suns 76             Having lost four of five, the last thing the Suns need is to play another losing team with a little extra motivation to beat Phoenix after dropping one to Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks. That’s not good news since for at least two Bobcats Friday’s matchup with […]
