Phoenix Suns

  1. Lockout might keep Marcin Gortat from being hammer for Poland

    Apr 1, 2011, 1:32 PM EST

    Marcin Gortat, VInce Carter

    Poland, like many countries this summer, will be playing in a tournament trying to earn a spot in the 2012 Olympics. In this case, it is EuroBasket 2011, where the Polish team is a long shot but at least they are in the dance and can dream like VCU. Except Poland may not have its…

  2. Grant Hill likes Phoenix but keeping his free agent options open

    Mar 30, 2011, 12:06 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is nearing retirement — and if there is one thing you can find plenty of in Phoenix it’s retirees. Warm, dry weather is easy on the joints, you know. Plus, lots of places you can have dinner at 5 and still make it home for Jeopardy. Hill will be a free agent at…

  3. Lakers, Suns put on a triple-overtime show of shows

    Mar 23, 2011, 3:51 AM EST

    photos-1

    This was the most entertaining game of the season. Not the best played, there was plenty of slop (Vince Carter’s 2-of-13 from three) and some odd decisions — Lamar Odom, why in the name of Unbreakable are you fouling a three-point shooter up three with a second to go? But there were also amazing plays…

  4. Lakers Bynum suspended two games for flagrant foul

    Mar 20, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum’s flagrant foul on Minnesota’s Michael Beasley has led to a two game suspension by the league, one of the harshest penalties this season. We told you about Bynum being ejected Friday night, and he deserved to be tossed. Bynum was late on his rotation (not that Matt Barnes did a lot to slow…

  5. Grant Hill fires back at Fab Five

    Mar 16, 2011, 4:33 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Jalen Rose and Grant Hill came from very different places. Still do. In the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary about Michian’s Fab Five, Jalen Rose (a member of that team and current ESPN NBA analyst) said this about Duke and Grant Hill (now of the Phoenix Suns). “Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me.…

  6. Steve Nash likely to return Wednesday against New Orleans

    Mar 15, 2011, 1:01 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Without Steve Nash the last two games, the Suns offense has looked like the preverbal chicken with its head cut off. Sure, plenty of running around but without any direction or understanding. It was ugly. The Suns, who average 109.4 points per 100 possessions on the season, were under 100 for both games. Wednesday they…

  7. Kobe Bryant game-time decision Monday night

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:12 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Kobe Bryant played through a sprained ankle aggravated during the Lakers thumping of the Dallas Mavericks Saturday, but now that the ankle has had a couple days to really swell up and get sore, he is a game-time decision for Monday night’s big game against the Orlando Magic. So said Phil Jackson, and we trust…

  8. Dwight Howard can still dunk with plenty of power

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:05 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    This dunk came just minutes into the Magic’s win over the Suns, but it pretty much sums up the game — Robin Lopez had no answer for Dwight Howard, and neither did any other Suns players. Including Marcin Gortat. Mostly just consider this a reminder that for all the steps to round out his game…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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,…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
