Marion and Nash Steal the Show

The Suns earned a 104-99 win over the Washington Wizards this week. Shawn Marion was the star of the game with 28 points and some great defensive plays. Steve Nash was key to the victory with an amazing 16 assists and 19 points. I don’t know if I stressed that enough. Nash had 16 assists when most players score five to eight at the most in a really good game. This was an exceptional game for the Suns and the entire team was playing great defense. Nash even gave them credit and called attention to the fact that this was a team effort and not just the Nash/Marion show.

Phoenix Suns Beat Seattle Sonics

Things have been up and down lately and we lost to the Dallas Mavericks which was disappointing. They are going for the best record in the Western Conference and are the team to beat, and we didn’t do it. Our win over the Seattle Supersonics was a team best for the Phoenix Suns if you ask me because we played the best defense I have seen all season. We held them to under 85 points and completely shut down their offense when it counted. Marion had 29 points and House had 20. Steve Nash had five assists and was a great offensive force in the game.

Injury Plagued Suns Experience Slump

The Mavericks had Josh Howard back for the Suns battle at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Wednesday. The Mavs beat us 102-96 and we extended our losing streak to three games. Tonight the Phoenix Suns face New Orleans for a second time in three games after losing to them at the beginning of the week. We are playing them on their home court this time and hopefully Steve Nash and the rest of the Suns can put the losses behind them and play better offense than they have in the past few games. We have been shooting around forty percent in recent weeks and our slump is mostly due to injuries. Most notably we have been missing our star shooter and James Jones due to a sore right ankle.

Phoenix Suns Shine over California

The Phoenix Suns could not possibly be better than they are right now. On an eight game winning streak, the team looks like a well oiled machine with Nash at the helm. We ended the Golden State Warriors winning streak in a spectacular118-110 victory. Steve Nash had 28 points and Shawn Marion had 28 points. The Suns had a total of eight players who scored in the double digits in their win over the Portland Trailblazers the day before but didn’t look tired at all in their win over the Warriors. There was a period when Golden State out scored us in the fourth quarter but over all we dominated the game.

Nash Leads Suns in Pacers Smash

The Phoenix Suns capitalized on their early lead over the Indiana Pacers and dominate the entire game. The Suns won 109-91 at home and the fans were loud and crazy as Steve Nash and Shawn Marion played one of their best games against a team like the Pacers. Nash had a season high 31 points and seven from three point range. Our defense was so good that it positively boosted out offense as well. Nash was the leader and star of the game showing that he is consistently scoring more this season than he ever has in his career. Coach Mike D’Antoni was quoted as saying after the game:

“I guess he got his shot back,”
