Phoenix Suns

  1. Steve Nash trying to play through groin pain, could sit Sunday

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:39 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Someday, Steve Nash should have a medical textbook about him. He’s battled back pain for years — that’s why he lays down on the sidelines — and had his face busted up a few times but has kept playing. The second half of the book would be about conditioning and eating right. The man tries…

  2. Aaron Brooks not yet a fit for the Suns

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:22 AM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns

    The Suns and the Rockets are two teams on the outside looking in at the playoff picture in the Western Conference, but each is on the rise. Houston had won seven of eight, and Phoenix had won five of seven coming into Tuesday night’s head-to-head matchup. The game’s result, an exciting 113-110 home win for…

  3. Channing Frye likely out 2-3 weeks with dislocated shoulder

    Mar 7, 2011, 4:44 PM EST

    Channing Frye

    Well, now who is going to hit the game winning shots for the Phoenix Suns? Channing Frye, who nailed two game winners last week, will be out about two to three weeks with a separated shoulder, the Suns announced Monday after Frye underwent an MRI. Frye is going to meet with an orthopedic surgeon still,…

  4. Video: Paul Pierce dunks on Channing Frye. Yes, that Paul Pierce.

    Mar 3, 2011, 8:58 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    Don’t tell Channing Frye, but Paul Pierce still has some hops. Actually you don’t need to tell Frye, he found out the hard way. Frye tried to challenge Pierce, and might have been successful if Pierce had dunked with his right hand, his shooting hand. But Pierce switched to his left and the result was…

  5. Video: Another day, another Channing Frye game winner

    Mar 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Two nights in a row Channing Frye gets free and knocks down the game-winning three for the Suns, this time in overtime in New Jersey. Kris Humphries makes the defensive mistake of going for the pass not staying with Frye (his man), and because of that he gets hung up on Marcin Gortat’s massive screen.…

  6. Video: Channing Frye game winner

    Feb 28, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Channing Frye

    This is a classic buzzer beater. Down 1 in the overtime with one last chance, pretty much everyone was expecting Steve Nash or the red-hot Grant Hill to get the look. But Channing Frye was feeling it in the overtime, so even though his shot is contested pretty well by Brandon Rush, he goes up…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Suns are making a run. So to speak.

    Feb 28, 2011, 6:30 AM EST

    Tyler Hansbrough, Grant Hill

    What you missed while watching Melissa Leo drop an F-bomb on national television…. The Lakers continuing their mastery of the Thunder and the Knicks upset of the Heat were our games of the day. Suns 110, Pacers 108 (OT): One of the more entertaining games of the day was the first one. Grant Hill was…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Derrick Rose kicks his MVP campaign into high gear

    Feb 18, 2011, 9:35 AM EST

    Derrick Rose, Tony Parker

    What you missed while wondering just how screwed up a world it is that the Kardashians made $65 million last year… Bulls 109, Spurs 99: For two of the better defensive teams in the league there was a whole lot of offense going on in this one. Both teams create serious matchup problems for the…

  9. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  10. Timberwolves a “determined suitor” for Nash

    Feb 11, 2011, 6:14 PM EST

    Steve Nash Timberwolves

    Courtesy of Marc Stein, who is always on the ball: Minnesota was one of the teams identified in last week’s story — along with Atlanta, Orlando, Portland, Toronto and Nash’s old friend Dallas — as a determined suitor for Nash. The Wolves, sources say, have called Phoenix as much as anyone, despite that they’re well…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Arron Afflalo kills the Mavericks streak

    Feb 11, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Denver Nuggets

    What you missed while wondering if your dog ate your toes…. The Lakers getting a win — not a statement, just a win — against Boston is our Game of the Night. Mavericks 121, Nuggets 120: Arron Afflalo is a great story. Back at UCLA he was the man — they ran him off double…

  12. Just a reminder, Steve Nash is the superstar everyone’s clamoring for, except for the defense thing

    Feb 5, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    We’re on a dicey ledge here, so hang on to the wall, won’t you? Steve Nash is the superstar you want on your team. While everyone from LeBron James to Dwight Howard to Carmelo Anthony to Rip Hamilton have either left their teams or threatened to leave their teams, Nash is bypassing any and all…

  13. Suns Alvin Gentry: I lost a little respect for Kevin Garnett

    Feb 4, 2011, 9:04 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Remember a week ago when Kevin Garnett pulled a couple bush-league moves, tapping Channing Frye in the, um, groin area and stepping under him as he came down from a jump shot? Both moves intended to bully and intimidate. Both pretty cheap. He got ejected for it (but no suspension). Alvin Gentry remembers, and said…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Other teams besides the Heat, Celtics and Lakers played Sunday, too

    Jan 31, 2011, 1:11 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    What you missed while falling asleep during the Pro Bowl…. Our man Matt Moore gave you breakdowns on the big games Sunday with the Heat beating the Thunder and the Celtics knocking off the Lakers. Suns 104, Hornets 102: The Suns were the better team for 47:40 but in those final 20 seconds they almost…

  15. KG hits Channing Frye in the junk, gets ejected

    Jan 29, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    So, in the midst of the Celtics’ abominable debacle against the Suns last night (hello, back-to-backs), things kind of got out of hand. Doc Rivers was tossed for continually arguing calls. The Celtics were getting rolled by the Suns, and then, well, this happened. As to whether or not this was a foul, I only…

  16. Suns owner says Nash not being traded, expects team to come together

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Suns Robert Sarver

    Suns owner Robert Sarver is optimistic. Or delusional if you want. Your pick. He told the Arizona Republic that this team is not that far removed from last season’s version that rode a hot streak to the Western Conference finals. That’s pretty darn optimistic (or delusional) — this year’s version is five games back of…

  17. Paul Pierce suffers knee bruise, game-time decision against Suns

    Jan 28, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    At some point in the third quarter of Boston’s win in Portland Thursday, Paul Pierce hurt his knee. It’s not that serious — he played seven minutes of the fourth quarter after the injury — and he thinks it’s just a bruise, but if there is swelling Pierce could miss the Celtics game against the…

  18. Suns want Vince Carter the gunner back

    Jan 26, 2011, 12:05 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    In his first 10 games as part of the Suns, the dry air and high-octane offense in Phoenix seemed to agree with Vince Carter. He averaged 18.9 points per game and appeared comfortable back in his role as high-scoring gunner. A space he occupied for much of his career (you can debate amongst yourselves if…

  19. Jason Richardson would rather play for the Chicago Blackhawks

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:40 PM EST

    Jason Richardson, Epke Udoh

    Jason Richardson, who has spent his basketball career in such cold-weather climates as Phoenix and now Orlando, grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. And when he was a kid, he wanted to be…. Jarome Iginla? Or maybe Mario Lemieux? He wanted to play in the NHL more than the NBA. That’s what he told the Orlando…

  20. Winderman: Lose a free agent? You should get another draft pick.

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:16 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Among counterproposals offered recently by the National Basketball Players Association during collective-bargaining negotiations were various means to make it easier to facilitate trades. That, of course, is the type of item you put on the table as a means to eventually remove it when it comes down to cash concerns. But last summer, and this…

  21. Suns president apologizes to fans for team’s play

    Jan 13, 2011, 11:35 AM EST

    Lon Babby

    Tuesday night, a reeling Denver Nuggets team blew out the Phoenix Suns (that loss would have gotten a lot more attention if the Cavs hadn’t been historically bad and LeBron hadn’t tweeted about it). That loss was the Suns eighth in their last 10 games. Wednesday morning, Suns president Lon Babby went on his weekly…

  22. Grant Hill leaves game with “minor” knee sprain

    Jan 9, 2011, 9:13 PM EST

    Image (1) NBA_hill_250.jpg for post 1814

    Grant Hill limped off the court in the first half of the Suns game against the Cavaliers Sunday for what is being described by the team as a “mild” knee sprain. He collided with Manny Harris while going after a long outlet pass and is not returning to this game. Smart money would have him…

  23. Suns sign Zabian Dowdell out of D-League

    Jan 9, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    Tulsa 66ers v Texas Legends

    The Suns have signed Zabian Dowdell of the Tulsa 66ers for the first D-League call-up of the season. I know what you’re thinking. What’s a Zabian Dowdell? To me, a Zabian Dowdell sounds like either A. A Turkish-made vacuum cleaner, B. a Russian automobile, or C. a foreign diplomat who may or may not be…

  24. What’s the upside of trading Steve Nash?

    Jan 8, 2011, 9:58 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash has made it pretty clear: He’s not asking out of Phoenix. Not going to happen. As he says it, he “signed up for this.” And Lon Babby, Suns GM, certainly doesn’t sound like a guy itching to pull the trigger on any move for Nash, calling him the “sun, the moon, and the…

  25. Stoudemire says Suns contract offer made him feel “unappreciated”

    Jan 7, 2011, 11:33 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    The fans in Phoenix appreciated Amar’e Stoudemire. They would chant “M-V-P” him (of course, fans seem to chant that for everyone now). He was part the most deadly pick-and-roll combination in the league and was at the heart of a team that had just advanced to the Western Conference finals in front of raucous crowds.…
