Phoenix has played like ****----yes, ****---these past two games, and yet somehow pulled out a win.

Now, you might think I'm nuts. Hell, some might say that this is a GOOD sign that they're winning these games. Maybe. But it was a mess for the second straight game. Terrible shooting, terrible spacing, no flow....nothing. Amare was worthless, J-Rich scored but he made some really stupid decisions and played some horrible D, Nash was lackluster save for a few really nice (admittedly crucial) shots. Lou didn't do anything, Dudley didn't do anything....

If someone could tell me how Channing Frye's foul was a flagrant, and how Tim Duncan's inverted DDT setup was somehow a foul on Barbosa, that'd be great btw.

We were lucky that Goran showed up tonight, because we weren't winning this game otherwise. We were lucky that SA missed a bajillion free throws. Lucky, lucky, lucky.

****, maybe we deserve the luck after all the crap over the years.

Whatever it is, we're not done yet. I don't wanna hear ANYTHING about the Lakers. I don't wanna hear ANYTHING about the Western Finals. This job is not finished yet. If ANY team can blow a 3-0 lead, it's Phoenix. If ANY team can come back from a 3-0 deficit, it's San Antonio.

That said....let's get this **** DONE on Sunday.


Yes, you're nuts. The Suns have played spectactular in games 2 and 3. They haven't just outplayed the Spurs in those two games but dominated in the most crucial part of the games. In the fourth quarter and any time the Spurs made a run. Every time they've needed to play well, they've played perfectly.

Really total BS about us not winning the game if Dragic didn't show up. The Suns erased a 18 point lead and had the lead down by 3 before Dragic did his thing. Suns had all the momentum and Spurs were playing scared. Every Suns fan had be feeling fantastic before Dragic even started going off. Every player on the Suns finished with a positive +/- except for Collins. And Amundson who only played 3 minutes.

Luck had more to do with those blowout wins against Portland than it had to do with any of the gritty gutsy wins in this series.

It's not luck that they played so much better after the first quarter. As Ginobili said, Suns figured out how the Spurs were defending them and was able to cleverly exploit it for the rest of the game.

Ya don't go down by 12 or 18 by playing spectacularly both games.

We really can't do that to all the teams in the playoffs.

The Suns are clearly a superior team to that of the Spurs. Get over it.

LOL I just watched the locker room video on NBA.com of the SUns after Gm3. Nash was like, "our **** gameplan is to get some **** rest."

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

I'm sorry, the way we shot and the way we flowed in Game 2 and for at least the first half of Game 3 was anything BUT the result of "playing spectacularly".
