First time I've been to the US Airways Center and first time I've been to an NBA game outside of the Bradley Center. It's a pretty nice place, concourse is way nicer and there is a bit more variety when it comes to concession stands.
While I was standing in line I saw John Hammond walking past, wish I wasn't so I could of went and said something to him but always next year I guess...
The arena itself is way less cavernous than the BC and the upper deck is about half the size. Seating configuration is obviously nicer on the lower level then the BC. One thing that I noticed tho were the seats were smaller, I was fine but that would not fly in Wisconsin. BC has a way nicer jumbrotron tho.

In the end his percentage was better than it has been. He won the game with tough, clutch shots in the 4th quarter. But it wasn't pretty getting there. And most nights if you rely on him to win the game.....well, we're going to lose.

Was at the game, pretty much how I saw it. Monta was typical Monta until the fourth quarter when he started hitting those shots. Bad defense, bad shots, turnovers. Guess he hit em when they counted lol. Thought Phoenix should of tried to post him up with Dudley, I remember Dudley being a PF at Boston College. Just seemed like a total mismatch.
Jennings had a nice 1st quarter, pretty unremarkable after that. Pushed the pace well at the end tho.
It's pretty crazy how improved Larry is from last season. Game just comes way more easy to him now, not taking those crazy long jumpers or trying to beat guys off the dribble. Catching and dunking, all he needs to do. His hands are so much better, he's not fumbling the ball when it's passed to him and he's using his 7'6" wingspan to put his hands on almost every rebound. You're really starting to notice teams avoiding taking it inside on him now. He's about as legit as a center as you can have in this league right now in my opinion. Imagine him with a PG like Jason Kidd or Steve Nash.
I like Henson, showed really nice post moves down low. Udoh seems really slow and stiff. Marquis Daniels sucks.
