Wow, what a strange situation to be in as a Suns fan. Who do we root for in the NBA Western Conference Finals? The Lakers have been our nemesis for much longer than the Spurs, but not as much...
Kobe's monster game couldn't overcome Stoudemire's moves and Robin Lopez toughness. The Suns have started to crawl back into this series, and we'll show you what can get them another step closer to making this a real competitive series.
Coach Alvin Gentry tried to implement a zone in the middle of the most pressure packed part of the season. I give him kudos for trying it, but no one can expect your team to execute without enough preparation. As a result, the Lakers scored easily. What's next for Los Suns?
Robin Lopez had a differential of +2 which is unheard of in a game where his team lost by 21. He needs to play more than 24 minutes for the Suns to have a chance. But the Lakers look too strong and big for anyone left in this league. VIsit us at http://bballbreakdown.com for even more basketball!
