Phoenix Suns 121, Los Angeles Lakers 116 — Live by the 3, die by the 3

November 14th, 2010 · 13 Comments

There aren’t many NBA teams that can get outrebounded 49-32, allow 68 points in the paint, surrender 20 offensive rebounds and come away victorious. But then again, there also aren’t many teams that can shoot the three ball like the Phoenix Suns. The Suns overcame their defensive and rebounding ineptitude by drilling the two-time defending champion […]

Phoenix Suns drop first preseason game in Sacramento

October 5th, 2010 · 7 Comments

The worst thing one can do when evaluating a preseason game is to just glance at the final score. So “Kings 109, Suns 95” doesn’t do this one justice.

Channing Frye: ‘There’s no confidence problems, no mental problems’

May 21st, 2010 · 10 Comments

PHOENIX — Despite facing an 0-2 deficit, the Phoenix Suns haven’t been all that bad offensively against the Los Angeles Lakers through two games of the Western Conference Finals  – with the exception of Channing Frye that is. After watching the three-point specialist struggle through 1-of-13 shooting thus far, it’s hard to believe that he […]

Kobe, Lakers scorch Suns in Game 1 blowout

May 18th, 2010 · 46 Comments

Entering the series, I was most concerned about how the Suns were going to match up against the Lakers’ length inside.
