Sacramento Kings 113, Phoenix Suns 108 — Trapped game

February 14th, 2011 · 36 Comments

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns’ defense has been so good of late that only the Miami Heat have allowed a lower shooting percentage over their last 10 games entering Sunday. So maybe that’s why the Suns felt like they would eventually string together a couple stops in the fourth quarter to finish a comeback that […]

Lakers game perfect time for Suns’ twin towers

January 5th, 2011 · 6 Comments

PHOENIX — The trio of Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom historically manhandles the Phoenix Suns on the interior. So far this season, the Lakers are shooting 33-of-48 (68.67) at the rim against the Suns, while outrebounding Phoenix 95-75 in two meetings (one loss, one win).

Phoenix Suns 123, Houston Rockets 116 — What a difference Nash makes

November 23rd, 2010 · 12 Comments

Steve Nash won his first MVP award in large part because of how bad an otherwise spectacular Suns team was in his absence during the 2004-05 season. Although I doubt Nash will ever be known as “Three Time,” the contrast between Saturday’s ugly loss in Charlotte and tonight’s pretty (offensively at least) 123-116 win over […]

Phoenix Suns cufflinks contest: Tiebreaker round

November 18th, 2010 · 1 Comment

It all comes down to this. We received 90 entries to our Phoenix Suns cufflinks contest, but thanks to the Suns’ porous three-point shooting outing Wednesday in Miami, only Eddie Kurtz and Ilan Shamos accurately prognosticated that the Suns would drill five super shots.  Eddie correctly added: “Although I hope that’s wrong. They won’t win […]
