  3. Phoenix the league’s healthiest team

    Apr 19, 2012, 5:19 PM EST

    Steve Nash, Earl Watson

    From Basketball Prospectus’ Kevin Pelton: In analyzing why the Phoenix Suns have exceeded expectations by staying in the playoff race through the season’s final week, the training room is a good place to start. There’s likely to be plenty of room, because the Suns are enjoying one of the healthiest seasons in NBA history. Combined,…

    Kevin Durant

    What you missed while hiring a nude maid service…. Knicks 111, Bucks 107: In a must-win game for both teams, the Knicks got the stops and gutted out a win that likely sends them to the playoffs.

  6. Grant Hill could return from knee injury next week

    Apr 10, 2012, 1:25 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns are trying to making a late push for the postseason, but have had to do so without Grant Hill, the team’s best defensive player, for the last eight games. He may, however, be ready to rejoin them for the final six of the regular season. Hill had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Apr 2, 2012, 4:46 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    There can’t be any question about the Thunder in the top spot after the last 8 days, but there are questions about the Heat and the Bulls in the East. And the Celtics and Spurs as spoilers. 1. Thunder (40-12, last week ranked number 2). They beat the Heat, Bulls and Lakers in the last…

  8. Grant Hill says he will push to be back this season with Suns

    Apr 2, 2012, 3:12 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    The questions here are: Why? And what happens when they are eliminated from the chase? But for now, Suns swingman Grant Hill said he is pushing hard to get back to the team following knee surgery last week. He wants to help their long shot playoff push, reports the Arizona Republic. Hill’s expectation to return…

  9. Grant Hill to have minor knee surgery, may miss rest of season

    Mar 30, 2012, 8:05 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    In a blow to the already fading playoff hopes of the Phoenix Suns, they are going to be without Grant Hill for most if not all of the rest of the season. Hill is set to have his knee scoped out on Friday, reports Paul Coro at the Arizona Republic. A magnetic resonance imaging test…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Drama with the Lakers? Shocking.

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:53 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while thinking you don’t hate your job as much as this guy… Lakers 104, Warriors 101: What’s a Laker win without more drama? During the game the drama was the Lakers not pulling away against an undersized Golden State side, then the Warriors fighting back from a double digits deficit in the…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Heat hotter than the Suns

    Mar 21, 2012, 9:31 AM EST

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem drives to the basket against the Phoenix Suns in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while wondering why someone whose job it was to smuggle cocaine into the United States would get the personalized license plate “SMUGLER”… Heat 99, Suns 95: It looked like the Suns had a road upset in their pocket — they led most of the fourth quarter and were up 10 with just…

  12. Clippers hold hour-long, closed-door meeting after ugly loss

    Mar 16, 2012, 6:35 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

    The Clippers blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead at home to a Phoenix Suns team playing without Steve Nash or Grant Hill. That is pretty much the textbook definition of an ugly loss. The Clippers have had a number of losses lately, most accompanied by some poor end-of-game execution. Take the ball out Chris Paul’s…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Clippers collapse leads to a lot of talk

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EST

    Caron Butler

    What you missed while watching your NCAA bracket go up in flames…. Suns 91, Clippers 87: Phoenix was on the second night of a back-to-back-to-back so coach Alvin Gentry decided to rest Grant Hill and Steve Nash — and the Suns still rallied from 12 back in the fourth quarter to win. The Suns have…

  14. Timberwolves’ offense rolls without Rubio in high-scoring victory over Suns

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:35 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Timberwolves needed this. After losing Ricky Rubio to a season-ending injury just a few days ago, and after not being able to muster the energy to take care of business at home against the horrible Hornets the day the news was confirmed, Minnesota began a tough seven-game road trip on Monday with an offensive…

  15. Phoenix 96, Dallas 94: Suns come back from double-digit defict to take down Mavericks

    Mar 9, 2012, 4:21 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    A few weeks ago, any talk involving the Phoenix Suns and the word “playoffs” would have seemed completely ridiculous — and maybe, to a certain extent, it still is. But the Suns have shown they possess the necessary grit and fight that is evident in postseason teams, battling back from double-digit deficits in their last…

  16. Suns shut down Blake Griffin, win ugly over the Clippers

    Mar 3, 2012, 3:39 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye, Grant Hill

    As the starting lineups took the floor Friday night in Phoenix for a nationally televised contest between the Clippers and the Suns, the matchup that looked to be far and away the most favorable for L.A. was Channing Frye against Blake Griffin. Griffin, after all, leads the league in dunks, and is so athletically gifted…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  18. Video: Monta Ellis hits tough fadeaway with one second left to beat the Suns

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:09 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    It was far from a perfect win for the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. They led by as many as 21 points in the first half, before giving all of the lead away to trail by one with under two and a half minutes left in the game. But Monta Ellis made sure they’d go…

  19. Steve Nash, Alvin Gentry defend decision to rest Suns’ stars

    Feb 16, 2012, 9:24 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    The Suns aren’t a team that’s stacked with talent; Steve Nash has said so himself at multiple times this season, going as far back as training camp last December. And given the team’s sub-.500 position in the standings, it certainly can’t afford to play games without its best offensive creator in Nash, and its best…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami gets third win in three nights

    Feb 15, 2012, 8:09 AM EST

    LeBron James

    What you missed while watching the Chipotle ad that was the best thing during the Grammys… Knicks 90, Raptors 87: What else can you say? The legend of Lin just keeps on growing. This was our game of the night. Heat 105, Pacers 90: Miami was playing their third game in three nights, Indiana had…

  21. Steve Nash suffers thigh bruise at the end of Suns’ win over the Grizzlies

    Jan 29, 2012, 3:15 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    It’s probably nothing that will hinder Steve Nash for very long, if at all. But on the last play of the Suns’ 86-84 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, Nash collided with Marc Gasol, causing him to limp off the floor after Mike Conley‘s three-point attempt at the buzzer to win it fell short. “It…

  22. Gentry says Suns “have to find a way to play with Nash off the floor”

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:56 PM EST

    nash-gentry-preview

    The Suns are off to a 6-12 start, which isn’t exactly where the team hoped or expected to be a little more than a quarter of the way through this lockout-shortened season. The problems certainly can’t be traced back to Steve Nash, who leads the league in assists despite Phoenix playing at a much slower…

  23. Grant Hill admits he gave Bulls serious consideration

    Jan 18, 2012, 3:28 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    The Bulls had a target during the frenetic free agency period post-lockout — get a veteran upgrade at the two guard. They got one in Richard Hamilton, who has given Chicago 12.2 points per game, a new offensive option to relieve some pressure off Derrick Rose, and he has played solid team defense. But that…

  24. Nash calls Kobe’s 48 against the Suns “one of the best performances” he’s seen

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:15 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill

    By now you’ve surely heard about Kobe Bryant‘s 48 points he put up in a win over the Suns on Tuesday. You likely are also aware that Bryant is playing through torn wrist ligaments in his shooting hand, and that perhaps he’s been shooting too much, to the detriment of this Lakers team. The fact…

  25. Video: Watch Kobe Bryant drop 48 on Phoenix

    Jan 11, 2012, 8:25 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill

    Kobe Bryant is an aging jump shooter with bad knees and a sore wrist and… well, it sure didn’t look anything like that on Tuesday. Kobe got to his spots on the floor against the Suns (Grant Hill can’t handle him), was feeling it and dropped 48 on Phoenix to power a Lakers win. Half…
