Suns mistakes cost them game & season

VS. Game 1: Suns 115, Spurs 117 (2OT) The Suns made some huge mental mistakes down the stretch in both regulation and OT, including a 24-second violation and a charging call (both while leading). They failed to seal the win and as a result, head back...

Suns' Defense (Yes, Defense) Leads to Game 2 Victory

It's not that often that the Phoenix Suns can attribute a victory to the defense they played on the opposition, but Tuesday night's Game 2 win over the San Antonio Spurs definitely goes to the defense. Not only did the Suns put a stop to the red-hot Tony...

Spurs take Game 1 from Suns... Leave Nash bruised & bloodied

Not a bad start to what looks to be a great series - Suns vs Spurs - round 1 goes to San Antonio 111-106, but just barely. Had Steve Nash not been removed from the game because of the excess blood, the Suns would've stood a much higher chance of winning...

Suns Defeat Lakers 119-110, Take Series 4-1

Pardon this short post today, but I don't have a lot of time to write about the whole game or analyze it in too much detail. For those of you who read this regularly though, I wanted to get the latest score up so you didn't have to go anywhere else to...

Mavs Win Game 5 in Dramatic Fashion - Warriors Lose Cool (again)

Dirk Nowitzki powered the Dallas Mavericks to a must-win in Game 5 of their 1st round matchup w/ the Golden State Warriors . Down six points with under three minutes to go, it looked like the likely-MVP winner would go down in the annals of basketball...
