A Suns Record We Didn't Need

Hate to criticize a win, since this season they are scarce as hens' teeth, but we came awfully close to losing to the Memphis Grizzlies, which would have made the Phoenix Suns the only one-win team in the NBA. We flirted with that disaster by almost blowing a lead of 89 to 58, which we held at the end of three quarters. How? By scoring a measly 7 points in the fourth--the worst single quarter in Phoenix history--while letting them get 29.

We know the defense has been, well, lacking so far this season. We've been allowing our opponents more points (108+ on average) than anybody, even the New York Knicks! But while we're figuring out what defense is all about, we don't dare slack off on scoring!

Not bad for the injured guy

Okay, so maybe I have some words to eat. Considering Stoudemire brought in 15 points in only 24 minutes on Wednesday to bring the Phoenix Suns to a nice voctory over the Los Angeles Clippers, maybe he's worth nursing a bit.

Need an aspirin? A cold compress? Let me fluff your pillows a bit.
