Cavaliers 109, Suns 91 — Home dominance halted

December 22nd, 2009 · 10 Comments

PHOENIX — When I used to cover baseball, I always used to dread walking into a losing locker room because it felt like a morgue, with only a player or two staying around to speak with the media in hushed tones and the rest of the clubhouse eerily silent. That’s not a feeling I’ve experienced […]

Sixers spank Suns in Mexico

October 18th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Second chance points, rebounding, defense and turnovers. Those four things will be a key determinant in the Suns’ success this season. The team’s win over the Trail Blazers two games ago was one of those games in which the Suns’ stellar offense outweighed those four factors, but tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers was a completely different […]

Heading into the fourth quarter Tuesday in Orlando, the Suns more or less accomplished what they wanted to: Dwight Howard was in foul trouble all game, the Suns scored a bunch of hoops in seven seconds or less, Shaq was a force and Nash and J-Rich weren’t bad either. They led the No. 3 team […]

Cavaliers 109, Suns 92 – Turned over

February 11th, 2009 · 10 Comments

What a fitting way for Phoenix to enter the All-Star break. In Wednesday’s 109-92 defeat in Cleveland the Suns suffered their worst turnover game of the year – which is saying something – allowed an opposing stud guard to set a career high, started strong but then faded and ultimately got blown out in a […]
