Phoenix Suns

  1. Steve Nash may “oversee” Canadian national hoops program

    Mar 7, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Canada will not be one of the teams competing this summer in London during the Olympic basketball tournament. They didn’t qualify. They didn’t come close, really. So they are turning to a model they know and the best basketball player the nation has ever produced — Steve Nash — to turn it around. And no,…

  2. Catching up with Lenny Cooke, the former can’t-miss kid

    Mar 6, 2012, 6:07 PM EST

    Lenny Cooke

    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EST

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…

  4. If Marcin Gortat can get 20 rebounds in a game, you’ll see him shoot three-pointers

    Mar 5, 2012, 9:15 AM EST

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    Marcin Gortat has a deal with the Suns’ coaching staff this season: get 20 rebounds in a game, do what you like. As you’ll soon see, this is a very serious and important matter to Gortat — so much so that he believes there might have been a conspiracy to keep him from reaching that…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  6. Blake Griffin says teams are allowed to be more physical with him than with others

    Mar 3, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin had a tough outing against the Suns on Friday, and had to earn every single one of his 17 points and seven rebounds. Those numbers had little impact on the game, however, and his 4-of-14 shooting through three quarters were a true indication of just how much of a struggle it was for…

  7. 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…

  8. Suns owner’s comments suggest no Steve Nash trade coming

    Mar 2, 2012, 1:56 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    I know it feels like beating a dead horse, but every day there seems to be more and more people talking about a Steve Nash trade — to the Knicks, to the Lakers (you really think the Suns would do that?), to just about anywhere. And we keep telling you every sign out of Phoenix…

  9. 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…

  10. Magic try to bring in players like Nash not ship Howard out

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Orlando is not ready to trade Dwight Howard. They may not be by March 15, but they certainly are not right now. In fact, multiple reports have them working the phones trying to bring in more talent to put around Howard rather than ship him out. And they know to keep him they can’t just…

    Feb 29, 2012, 10:00 PM EST

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    I think Kevin Hart was in more places All-Star Weekend than Dwight Howard. He was MVP of the Celebrity Game. He was the hardest working man in show business promoting his new movie, “Think Like a Man,” coming to a theater near you soon. With that guy who played Turtle in Entourage. Here is a…

  12. Trade offers for Nash may keep coming, but Suns’ plan to keep him hasn’t changed

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:40 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Nothing has changed regarding the Phoenix Suns and Steve Nash. The team remains optimistic that it can convince their two-time MVP point guard to re-sign for another couple of years this summer, and Phoenix is not going to trade him before then unless Nash himself asks the team to do so. The organization’s seemingly firm…

  13. Don’t bet on Raptors moving Calderon, at least until summer

    Feb 29, 2012, 3:17 PM EST

    Jose Calderon

    There are a few teams out there who could really use an elite point guard. Yes Lakers, we’re looking right at you, but there are many others. Which is why the Toronto Raptors will get some inquiries about Jose Calderon, who is the best point guard readily available in a trade right now (we’re Steve…

  14. Wednesday And-1 links: Some rumors, Shaq, flu game talk

    Feb 29, 2012, 11:37 AM EST

    Monta Ellis

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Those rumors of a Monta Ellis to the Nets for Brook Lopez trade? Not much to them. Milwaukee will apparently listen to trade offers for…

  15. Video: Kobe plans to play through concussion, Nash could be on the trade block. 5 Questions with Adrian Wojnarowski

    Feb 27, 2012, 9:08 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports sits down to talk about the All-Star Game, the repercussions of Dwyane Wade‘s foul on Kobe Bryant, how the Mavericks can make a run at Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, and if Steve Nash could head to… Orlando?

    Feb 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EST

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  17. Recapping PBT’s coverage of All-Star weekend from Orlando

    Feb 27, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    After four exciting and exhausting days in Orlando for All-Star weekend, it’s time for PBT to get out of town. The weather was good, and the city itself might be great, but we wouldn’t know due to spending the entire time shuttled between hotels, convention centers, and of course, the Amway Center downtown. Speaking of…

  18. Steve Nash reiterates he’s not looking for a trade, but free agency…

    Feb 24, 2012, 5:07 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    After this All-Star Weekend the trade rumors are going to really start to ramp up as we head to the March 15 deadline. Steve Nash’s name will come up. A lot. Because just about every team could use an elite point guard. But when asked about it Friday, Nash did the same dance he has…

  19. 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…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dirk Nowitzki is still good

    Feb 21, 2012, 7:55 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    What you missed while trying to find something to watch now that Downton Abbey is over….. Nets 100, Knicks 92: Deron Williams would like you to know he is the best point guard in the greater New York area, and will be next year when the Nets move to Brooklyn (unless he leaves to play…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Streaking Heat, Spurs land on top

    Feb 20, 2012, 2:01 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Miami has looked dominant the last week, while Tony Parker may be the best player in basketball the last two weeks so the Spurs climb. At the bottom, things look familiar. 1. Heat (24-7, last week ranked 1). They became the third team in the NBA to sweep a back-to-back-to-back (Bulls, Thunder), but they did…

  22. Jason Terry is not a member of the Jeremy Lin fan club

    Feb 20, 2012, 10:20 AM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin walks up the court against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Sunday may have changed his mind. That is when Jeremy Lin put up 28 points and 14 assists in leading the Knicks past the Mavericks. That included six points and six assists in the fourth quarter when the Knicks took over the game. Going into that game, Jason Terry was not as impressed as the…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pistons handle Celtics easily

    Feb 20, 2012, 7:14 AM EST

    Boston Celtics' Pierce and Garnett react when the team was called for a technical foul against the Chicago Bulls during NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while trying to decide if you should vote for the naked cowboy guy for president… Knicks 104, Mavericks 97: So Mark Cuban, still think Linsanity is all about New York? Matt Moore broke this down as our game of the day Sunday. Heat 90, Magic 78: It wasn’t that close, the Heat…

  24. 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…

  25. Jeremy Lin added to Rising Stars All-Star Weekend game

    Feb 16, 2012, 8:29 PM EST

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    How about Jeremy Lin throwing ally-oops to Blake Griffin? You got it. Thanks to a late add by the NBA and some drafting prowess by Shaquille O’Neal, Lin and Griffin will be playing together the Friday night of All-Star weekend at the Rising Stars Challenge (formerly the Rookie/Sophomore Game). Lin was not on the original…
