Lakers Suns Game 6

  1. Amare Stoudemire is still a beast

    May 30, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    Given space, given simple one-on-one coverage, nobody is stopping Amar’e Stoudemire. He is too strong. He is too quick. The man is a beast and if it is just you between him and the basket you are about to be in a poster. Pau Gasol was the victim Sunday. Just watch. The only question: When…

  2. Lakers looking ahead to Celtics, Suns wonder what is next

    Phil Jackson told Paul Pierce this is the matchup he wanted. Kobe just sees another hurdle in his way. Alvin Gentry only sees Kobe Bryant. Steve Nash tries to see the future.  

  3. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 6: Slovenian feud almost forced a Game 7

    May 30, 2010, 3:22 AM EDT

    “I’m going to kill him.” That was Kobe Bryant’s comment about teammate Sasha Vujacic to TNT’s Craig Sager after the game. He was kidding. Probably. But I would not have wanted to be Vujacic on the plane ride back to Los Angleles — it was Vujacic who made the play that swung the momentum to…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Artest, Fisher came up big when they needed to

    May 30, 2010, 12:59 AM EDT

    Coming into this year’s playoffs, a lot of people would have pointed to Ron Artest and Derek Fisher as potential weaknesses for the Lakers. Both players are battle-tested veterans who bring hustle and toughness to the floor every time they play. However, Artest and Fisher are also a step or three slow for their positions…

  5. NBA Finals, Lakers Suns Game 6: When the going got tough, Kobe got going

    May 30, 2010, 12:13 AM EDT

    When asked “Kobe or LeBron?” my answer the last year has been “LeBron for the first 42 minutes of the game, Kobe for the last six.” Saturday night is exactly why. Kobe is the best closer in the NBA. Kobe is better at making tough shots than anyone in the NBA. Kobe thrives in pressure…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 6: In this Wild West saloon game the cards are on the table, it's about the faster draw

    May 29, 2010, 2:41 PM EDT

    Think of the Suns/Lakers series as a poker game in an old Wild West saloon somewhere outside Phoenix. By Game 6, the cards are on the table. Both teams have gone all-in and flipped their two cards over. All that’s left to do is flip over the turn and river cards. Meaning the strategy is…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 6: The Suns don't know self-pity, in fact they may be more confident now than ever

    May 28, 2010, 2:17 PM EDT

    The Lakers players were still mobbing Ron Artest, the Staples Center crowd still singing “I Love LA” (and missing the irony of the lyrics). The Suns had slid back into their locker room, and Suns coach Alvin Gentry said Steve Nash was the first to speak. “Time to forget about this game, time to move…
