Portland Trail Blazers 106, Phoenix Suns 92 — Offensively bad fourth

October 27th, 2010 · 17 Comments

(Video by ValleyoftheSuns’ Mike Schmitz) When Steve Nash finished off a nifty three-point play with 5:43 remaining in the game to put Phoenix up three, the Phoenix Suns and Portland Trail Blazers appeared to be headed to a classic opening-night finish. I’m not sure what exactly happened next, but it certainly wasn’t Phoenix Suns basketball […]

Phoenix Suns struggle from the floor but still eke out win over the Golden State Warriors

October 20th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Josh Childress expected to provide rebounding, versatility

October 2nd, 2010 · 3 Comments

PHOENIX — On paper at least, the Phoenix Suns will struggle most this season rebounding the basketball.
