No Forward Progress

I really didn’t expect this at all. The Suns have the most powerful offense in the NBA right now, so why did they lose the first two games at home? The Phoenix Suns opened up the Western Conference Finals with home court advantage, but the Spurs took that away after game 1.

Nash did his part, scoring 29 points with 15 assists in game 2. Nash hit 13-of-22 shots, but the Suns still lost. Just like in game 1, the Suns lost the game in the 4th quarter. Some one needs to tell these guys that in order to win you have to play all 4 quarters.

Stoudemire Shines

Amare Stoudemire has been a huge factor for the Suns every since the playoffs started. Don’t get me wrong, Stoudemire did well doing the season, but his game has definitely taken a step up.

In the first game of the Western Conference Finals, Stoudemire posted 41 points and had nine rebounds. He shot 12-of-21 shots and 15-of-18 free throws. But that still was no’t enough to hold off the Spurs 4th quarter surge. The final score was 121-114 in favor of the Spurs.

Like Whoa

Now the Mavs are toe to toe with the Suns as the series is now tied at 2-2. I think the Suns are the most surprised at of anyone, and the least surprised would be head coach Avery Johnson of the Mavericks.
