  1. Three Stars of the Night: Bombs Away

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:38 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Charlotte Bobcats

    Chicks dig the long ball, right? Well, for tonight’s Three Stars we’ve got some sharp shooting goodness from behind the arc, a man who’s getting awful comfortable in this space, and an off the bench performance that sunk the struggling Lakers. Third Star: Randy Foye (17 points, 5-9 three pointers) It wasn’t so much the…

  2. NBA season preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Last Season: We could talk about the slow start, the impressive run in the season’s second half, or the eventual finish two games outside of the playoff picture. But all anyone in Phoenix will ultimately remember about the 2011-12 campaign is that it was the last time they would witness the on-court brilliance of Steve…

  3. Suns did not draft Kendall Marshall for his athleticism

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:47 PM EST

    North Carolina Marshall reacts after scoring against the Creighton during a college basketball game in Greensboro

    Kendall Marshall was selected by the Suns with the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, and by listening to the team’s GM Lance Blanks — as well as to the loud applause that rained down from the team’s war room as the pick was announced — it was clear that the organization was…

  4. Jazz clinch last playoff spot in the West, eliminate Suns

    Apr 25, 2012, 2:04 AM EST

    Derrick Favors, Marcin Gortat

    The Jazz clinched the final playoff spot in the West on Tuesday, and knocked the Suns out of the postseason picture at the same time. In a game that was essentially a must-win for both teams if they were to keep their playoff hopes alive, Utah was too tough at home, especially inside, and were…

  5. Video: Robin Lopez’ flagrant foul on Blake Griffin

    Apr 20, 2012, 9:13 AM EST

    A referee holds back the Phoenix Suns' Lopez after a few Los Angeles Clippers players charged at him after a hard foul on their teammate Griffin during their NBA basketball game in Phoenix

    This foul rightfully got Robin Lopez ejected — any play on the ball was made after he made sure Blake Griffin was taken out of the play. It was excessive, he had to go for it and the flagrant II call was correct. But… it worked. Clipper blogger Steve Perin noted it at SBN —…

  6. James Harden scores a career-high for the second time this season against the Suns

    Apr 19, 2012, 2:53 AM EST

    James Harden, Sebastian Telfair

    Before the Suns faced the Thunder on Wednesday, Alvin Gentry had some high praise for Oklahoma City’s James Harden. Phoenix’s head coach said that he and his staff were talking about Harden in preparing for this matchup, and once they got past Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, they were hard-pressed to name a two-guard in…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Clippers collapse leads to a lot of talk

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EST

    Caron Butler

    What you missed while watching your NCAA bracket go up in flames…. Suns 91, Clippers 87: Phoenix was on the second night of a back-to-back-to-back so coach Alvin Gentry decided to rest Grant Hill and Steve Nash — and the Suns still rallied from 12 back in the fourth quarter to win. The Suns have…

  8. Timberwolves’ offense rolls without Rubio in high-scoring victory over Suns

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:35 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Timberwolves needed this. After losing Ricky Rubio to a season-ending injury just a few days ago, and after not being able to muster the energy to take care of business at home against the horrible Hornets the day the news was confirmed, Minnesota began a tough seven-game road trip on Monday with an offensive…

  9. 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.…

  10. Steve Nash preaches patience as Suns work to correct issues

    Dec 24, 2011, 1:46 AM EST

    steve-nash-getty

    The Suns dropped their final preseason game on Thursday, and unfortunately for them, the result was a familiar one. The Nuggets cruised to a second straight blowout victory over Phoenix, but this one was far more humbling for the Suns, considering that Nene, Al Harrington, and Ty Lawson all sat this one out due to…

  11. NBA Season Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Dec 15, 2011, 5:12 PM EST

    nash-gentry-preview

    Last season: 40-42, good for 10th place in the West, and six games out of the playoff picture. Head Coach: Alvin Gentry Key Departures: Vince Carter was waived by the team and was picked up by Dallas. Aaron Brooks signed to play in China just before the lockout was resolved, and while the Suns still…

    Spanish basketball player Ricky Rubio wa

    2010-11 record: 17-65 Head Coach: Rick Adelman, his first year on the job in Minny. Key Departures: Sebastian Telfair, Lazar Hayward Key Additions: Ricky Rubio, Derrick Williams, J.J. Barea, Brad Miller (who is out injured to start the season) Best-Case Scenario: Adelman, Rubio and Williams turn the Timberwolves into a run-and-gun force made of tweeners,…

  13. Suns training camp notes: High hopes for Telfair, improvement for Lopez, dealing with Pietrus

    Dec 12, 2011, 1:10 AM EST

    Timberwolves Telfair Basketball

    The Phoenix Suns are holding training camp in town this week at Grand Canyon University. Here are some notes from Sunday’s morning and evening practice sessions: – The Suns were without Grant Hill, Sebastian Telfair, and Markieff Morris for their morning practice session, but had them on the floor for the evening session, once Vince…

  14. Suns may look to limit players’ minutes thanks to compressed schedule

    Dec 11, 2011, 4:43 PM EST

    nash-warmup

    The NBA lockout was resolved just in time to still give us a season, but it’s a 66-game schedule that’s jam-packed into a little over three and a half months. That’s something all teams are going to be forced to deal with, but in Phoenix, where two of the team’s best players in Steve Nash…

  15. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  16. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  17. Report: Suns “close” to signing Sebastian Telfair

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:39 AM EST

    Sebastian Telfair

    The Suns dealt for Aaron Brooks at last season’s trade deadline, in hopes that he might be a long-term solution at point guard for the team — both as a backup to Steve Nash, and possibly as his someday-replacement. Brooks was to be a restricted free agent this season, and while it’s unclear whether or…

  18. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  19. Video: Watch a WNBA star take it to Sebastian Telfair

    Sep 24, 2011, 9:31 AM EST

    Cappie Pondexter

    Friday, the final day of the Impact Competitive Training Series, was a super casual little run that really didn’t offer much. The small crowd was silent. Except where WNBA star Cappie Pondexter took it to Sebastian Telfair. If you don’t know Pondexter, she is a two-time All WNBA first team guard now of the New…

  20. Sebastian Telfair wants to play for a contender. Don’t we all?

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    Sebastian Telfair

    Sebastian Telfair will be a free agent when the lockout ends, and there will be some demand for him to come in as a backup point guard. The man will get paid. Maybe not as much as he hoped under whatever the new labor deal looks like, but he will get paid. But of course,…

  21. Stalled NBA labor negotiations get players in Vegas talking

    Sep 14, 2011, 8:17 AM EST

    Sebastian Telfair

    For once, the conversation among NBA players in Vegas wasn’t who was headed to Tao. Like it was everywhere NBA people gathered, the talk was about the stalled talks. The implosion of hope surrounding the NBA labor negotiations. At the Impact Competitive Training Series in Las Vegas, players were talking about it and where that…

  23. Knicks interested in Timberwolves Luke Ridnour, not Telfair

    Dec 30, 2010, 12:19 PM EST

    Ridnour_Wolves

    A couple of weeks ago a report leaked out that the Knicks and Timberwolves were talking about a trade package to bring Sebastian Telfair to New York to back up Raymond Felton. Well, New York and Minnesota may be talking, but the Knicks are really only interested in Luke Ridnour, not Telfair, according to Alan…

  24. Timberwolves make it official, sign Sundiata Gaines

    Nov 12, 2010, 1:33 PM EST

    Sundiata Gaines

    We told you yesterday they were thinking about it, today the Minnesota Timberwolves made it official, signing Sundiata Gaines to help fill their depleted back court. Gaines is a stop-game measure due to injuries —Luke Ridnour and Jonny Flynn are expected back next week, Martell Webster and Wayne Ellington could help some but they are…

  25. Luke Ridnour’s hamstring is just strained

    Nov 9, 2010, 3:14 PM EST

    Ridnour_Wolves

    UPDATE 3:14 pm: The reports are in from the specialist Ridnour saw and it is just a strained hamstring, nothing torn or more severely injured, according to a tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Hamstrings can linger if not fully rested, which seems to be the case here. Ridnour is with the team…
