5 in a row. Pretty dang nice. A good old fashioned butt-woopin' in Sacramento.
Something's happening with the Phoenix Suns. That something is good. And forgive me for getting sentimental, but Nash to Stoudemire nearly brought a tear to my eye tonight. The two even hooked up for an alley-oop. You gotta be kidding me. Makes a guy want things to stay the same.
But enough of that emotional garbage...The Suns came out tonight in the SAC and took care of business. The final score doesn't do the Suns justice. They were in full control for the duration of the game tonight.
- Steve Nash: 23/10/8
- Amare Stoudemire: 30/9
- Grant Hill: 10/5/3
- Robin Lopez: 10/7/2
- Jason Richardson: 16 (points)
The bench put in some good work tonight as well: Goran Dragon Dragic added 10 points, Jared Dudley, 7, Channing Frye had an awesome put back dunk, and Louis Amundson pulled down 7 rebounds before later fouling out.
