  1. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 2: Somehow, Phoenix finds a way to negate Duncan's advantage in the paint

    May 5, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

    Although the Suns aren’t exactly stacked with defenders that can handle Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, no single Spurs player stands as a bigger threat to what Phoenix hopes to accomplish than Tim Duncan. If TD is playing his best basketball, the Spurs would likely win this series even, regardless of a George Hill disappearance.…

  2. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 1: Stars for Phoenix are hidden in plain view

    May 4, 2010, 12:09 PM EDT

    Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire are All-NBA caliber players, and in this series they will perform and be praised. They’re just too talented not to, and their combined 56 points — as well as their respective double-doubles — speaks to their tremendous impact on the Suns’ huge Game 1 victory over the Spurs. On the…

  3. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: And now was acknowledged the presence of the Black and Silver Death

    May 3, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs will meet for the fourth time in six years, and Steve Nash and friends will try their damnedest to avoid their fourth elimination in as many tries by the Black and Silver Death. You see, some will tell you that the Suns are stylistically doomed to falter…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Grant Hill is moving on for the first time

    May 1, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns, despite what they will tell you, must be feeling a sense of dread. They’ve seen this script so many times, it’s etched into their memory like a bad family movie stuck on repeat. Robert Horry. The hipcheck. The Duncan Three. Parker bloodying Nash’s nose. Michael Finley. Burce Bowen. The hipcheck. The hipcheck.…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Jerryd Bayless will not call Grant Hill old

    Apr 30, 2010, 8:21 AM EDT

    Grant Hill looked like he had found the Fountain of Youth right before this series — and it wasn’t just points, he was grabbing boards and creating steals and all the little things the team needs to win. Oh yea, and he’s blocking shots. Just ask Jerryd Bayless.

  6. Grant Hill is a really, really good guy

    Apr 26, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    Grant Hill has had his share (and a couple other people’s shares) of ups and downs on the court over his career. But at ever stop, people rooted for him because he’s a good guy. That was acknowledged on a national level today as Hill was awarded the NBA Sportsmanship Award (called the Joe Dumars…

  7. Amare Stoudemire: "I never had a clue on how fun defense really is because we never played it"

    Apr 24, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    It’s seemed a revelation in the playoffs, but the Suns started playing defense just after the All-Star Break. Seriously. They kept putting up the mountains of points, but from the All-Star Game to the end of the season, the Suns were 12th in defensive efficiency in he league (according to ESPN’s John Hollinger). Not great,…

  8. Rudy Fernandez has been given his chance, but has lost his confidence

    Apr 22, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    Remember the Rudy Fernandez from the gold medal game in Beijing? The one with 13 points in nine minutes on the court. The one that made you think “Damn, Portland has another one, another great young player.” That Rudy Fernandez has gone missing. And Portland could really use him, as he is starting in place…

  9. Grant Hill is a defensive stopper. I repeat, Grant Hill is a defensive stopper.

    Apr 21, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    As Matt Moore mentioned in our recap of Suns-Blazers Part Deux, the most compelling part of the Suns’ adjustments to topple the Blazers was Alvin Gentry’s decision to drape Grant Hill on Andre Miller. Jason Richardson had primary Miller duties for most of Game 1, but obviously wasn’t too successful: ‘Dre dropped 31 points and…
