Singing Suns Praises for All to Hear

The Phoenix Suns have been a joy to watch this season. Our players are graceful, agile and ridiculously talented. Steve Nash is the central figure and inspiration for this rant but I have to recognize Leandro Barbosa, Boris Diaw, and Shawn Marion. I watch them and marvel at the way Nash can dish the ball out to any one on the court and make a play. It is rare to see so much chemistry and unselfish team work in the NBA these days.

Suns Lose but Look at the Score!

I don’t know what is happening in the NBA, but we are seeing a lot of really high scoring games from some teams this season. The Phoenix Suns lost in double overtime to the Seattle Sonics and the score was 152-149. I am impressed by the stamina shown by these players as they battled it out in extra minutes and lost none of their scoring steam as time wore on.

Suns and Denver - Stellar Scoring

The Phoenix Suns game against the Denver Nuggets was intense. The score was 137-139 and as you can imagine it was the highest scoring game we have seen this season. I personally have never seen a game like it. We were equally matched and both teams were scoring with fervor and concentration throughout the game and in triple overtime. Earlier in the season we scored 130 against Portland but they only scored 85. It was an easy game and we had no choice but to run up the score on their floundering defense. I never dreamed we would top that and then lose in the final minutes. My hat is off to Denver for keeping up and to the Suns for never backing down.

Nash and Suns Beat the Sixers

Steve Nash wasn’t the only remarkable player in game Wednesday against the Philadelphia 76ers. James Jones had 19 points and Iverson was held to under 20 points. The Suns came off with a spectacular performance and a scoring surge in the third quarter. The final score of the game was Suns 105 and Sixers 85. Routing Iverson and stopping him from scoring is the most important of the Suns accomplishments in the game because he is their only real weapon. Iverson scores fewer points by far when he comes up against Nash and the Suns because they know the formula that works.
