Suns On A Roll... Win 2 in a Row; 21 Consecutive Vs. Bucks in PHX

In the fine words of Will Farrell, the Suns can say "we're going streaking!" and get away with it... and this time, it's not a 4-game losing streak.

On Tuesday night, the Phoenix Suns trounced the Milwaukee Bucks in PHX for their 2nd win in a row and 21st in a row against the Bucks in AZ.  The 21st in a row vs. the Bucks ties the current active streak in the NBA for domination over an opponent (tied w/ the Spurs no less).

Shaq was ultra-dominant in the paint against the (soft) Bucks and the entire starting squad seemed to jell pretty well in the victory, while the Bucks continue to struggle.  Porter kept Nash's minutes down and the rest of the team performed when it needed to, including a blazing 74 point first half.  The game appeared much like the D'Antoni era, but perhaps the Suns played a bit better defense - although I wouldn't call allowing 115 points good defense.  Needless to say, the Suns get the win and head to Laker-land tonight for a match-up w/ the Lakers at the Staples Center.  Shaq will not participate due to a death in the family (grandma), so Diaw and Lopez will need to step up vs. Bynum and Gasol.
