Phoenix Suns

  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: it’s a free throw-a-palooza

    Jan 13, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What you missed while trying to beat up a police officer with a stuffed monkey…. Cavaliers 101, Suns 90: Kyrie Irving had his best game ever matched up against Steve Nash. Our own Brett Pollakoff broke it down as our game of the night. Magic 117, Warriors 109: Mark Jackson decided the best strategy was…

  2. Kyrie Irving scores a career-high 26 points to lead Cavs to victory over the Suns

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:16 AM EDT

    kyrie-irving-suns

    This was supposed to be the soft part of the schedule for Phoenix. Kyrie Irving made sure that it wasn’t. The number one overall pick in the NBA draft showed why he was taken there, scoring a career-best 26 points and keying a second-quarter run that erased the Suns’ six-point lead, and put the Cavaliers…

  3. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

  4. Nash calls Kobe’s 48 against the Suns “one of the best performances” he’s seen

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:15 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill

    By now you’ve surely heard about Kobe Bryant‘s 48 points he put up in a win over the Suns on Tuesday. You likely are also aware that Bryant is playing through torn wrist ligaments in his shooting hand, and that perhaps he’s been shooting too much, to the detriment of this Lakers team. The fact…

  5. Wednesday And-1 links: Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson

    Jan 11, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    Welcome to our morning 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). Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson. Here is the video proof. Paul Pierce misses having Delonte West around. By the way, West apologized for his…

  6. Video: Watch Kobe Bryant drop 48 on Phoenix

    Jan 11, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill

    Kobe Bryant is an aging jump shooter with bad knees and a sore wrist and… well, it sure didn’t look anything like that on Tuesday. Kobe got to his spots on the floor against the Suns (Grant Hill can’t handle him), was feeling it and dropped 48 on Phoenix to power a Lakers win. Half…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nate Robinson beats the Heat

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while being addicted to cracking your knuckles… Wizards 93, Raptors 78: The Wizards win! Theeee Wizards win! Warriors 111, Heat 106: This was another Miami route, they were up 17 late in the third quarter, but then Nate Robinson happened. And then Dorell Wright happened. And suddenly Mark Jackson and the rebuilding…

  8. Video: See Jared Dudley broadcast a badminton game

    Jan 10, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Suns swingman Jared Dudley is one of the more fun guys to talk to around the league, a guy kind of up for anything. Like making fun of the future broadcasting career we all know he has. Best part of this is the end when Dudley tries to broadcast a youth badminton game. Yelling “miss”…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Heat on top, Blazers best in West

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James does a dance with Chalmers during a time-out in overtime after they tied their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    A little shifting up at the top but nothing too dramatic. Your big movers this week is the 76ers, who are playing well and moving up the rankings, and the Hornets dropping like a rock. 1. Heat (8-1 last week ranked No. 1). Chris Bosh drops 33 on the Hawks and wants you to remember…

  10. Monday And-1 links: Who is Lakers second scoring option?

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). Who is the Lakers second scoring option after Kobe? Well, Kobe Bryant says it’s Andrew Bynum. Kwame Brown thinks he deserves some of the credit…

  11. Michael Redd likely to see his first action with the Suns later this week

    Jan 9, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    michael-redd-phx

    Michael Redd signed with the Suns back on Dec. 29, and at the time, the message was clear that there would be no rush in getting him to the court. But after 10 days of workouts with the team, it appears that his time is almost here. “I think he’s almost to the point where…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Spurs look old

    Jan 9, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Kendrick Perkins

    What you missed while watching Tim Tebow resurrect after three games…. Lakers 90, Grizzlies 82: This was our game of the night, where the Lakers flaws are showing and it doesn’t matter. Thunder 108, Spurs 96: Both teams were tired — third game in three nights for Oklahoma City, fourth game in five nights for…

  13. Nash’s perfect game leads Suns to blowout win over road-weary Blazers

    Jan 7, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT

    nash-game-time-decision-magic

    The Portland Trail Blazers secured an emotional home win over the evil Lakers on Thursday, and afterward, the team didn’t make it to its hotel in Phoenix until 4 a.m. local time the next morning. Add those two facts together, and you get the result of Friday night’s game against the Suns: a 102-77 shellacking…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

  15. NBA releases All-Star ballot, here are my early votes

    Jan 4, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can vote — and not just if you’re a Republican in Iowa. The NBA opened All-Star Game voting to the fans on Wednesday, so you can pick who will not play any defense in Orlando Feb. 26. Fan voting picks the starters, the coaches for the teams help pick the rest of the squad.…

  16. Marcin Gortat injury update: Thumb improving, hopes to play without brace “in the next couple of days”

    Jan 3, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    Marcin Gortat had a breakout season a year ago after being traded from Orlando to Phoenix, averaging better than 15 points and 10 rebounds per game over the last two months of the season. He’s struggled to regain that form through five games this year due to the thumb injury he sustained less than a…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living upsets

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Oregon and Wisconsin score another touchdown…. Hawks 100, Heat 92: Miami was zoned out again. The Hawks went to a zone defense a lot starting in the second quarter and it stalled out the Heat, who shot just 37 percent in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Tracy McGrady alone had 13…

  18. Steve Nash will continue to play through rib injury

    Jan 2, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns haven’t been themselves offensively this season, and neither has Steve Nash. Traditionally one of the league’s best shooters, Nash has managed to go just 7-of-29 from the field over his last three games, and hasn’t cracked double digits in scoring since the season-opener against New Orleans. A rib injury is likely the cause…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Blazers climb, Heat on top of mountain

    Jan 2, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Lots of big moves up and down as the rankings start to shake themselves out a little. In college football they should hold off doing polls through those early weeks because said polls impact the postseason, but as the NBA has a playoff to determine who is best let’s dive in. 1. Heat (5-0, last…

  20. Dwyane Wade compares Ricky Rubio to Steve Nash

    Jan 2, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    Timberwolves Rubio Arrives Basketball

    There’s a long way to go in Ricky Rubio’s career — he’s just 21. We feel like we’ve been hearing about him forever because he burst on the scene at the highest level of Spanish basketball at age 16, but he is still very young. Even at 21 he has the court vision and sense…

  21. Michael Finley wants another shot in the NBA

    Jan 1, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Sacramento Kings

    Michael Finley was last seen as a bit player on Boston in the 2010 playoffs. He was unable to get floor time due to age and injuries and quietly faded into the sunset, right? Not so fast. HoopsHype spoke to the former Spurs champion who says that he wants to give it another go… now…

  22. It’s official, Suns sign Michael Redd to deal

    Dec 29, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    MRedd

    Our man in Phoenix Brett Pollakoff told you last night that oft-injured sharpshooter Michael Redd had come in and worked out for the Suns. Apparently that went well because now he is officially a member of the Suns, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. This is a one-year deal for the veterans’ minimum.…

  23. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  24. Suns drop to 0-2, search to explain offensive struggles

    Dec 29, 2011, 3:12 AM EDT

    Steve Nash, Jodie Meeks

    In recent years, the Phoenix Suns have been known for, above all else, having an uptempo and elite offense. Win or lose, and no matter the season’s ultimate result, the team never struggled to score with Steve Nash running a descendant of Mike D’Antoni’s offense. Through two games in this young season, however, offense has…

  25. Video: Eric Gordon with the game winner for Hornets

    Dec 27, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Eric Gordon is very, very good. In a few years he will be one of the best slashing guards in the league. The Clippers were only going to trade him for a handful of players in the league (Chris Paul being one of them). Here he is getting the Hornets a win over the Suns…
