Suns Put On A Show in the First Half

To quote Dan Majerle, "I'm speechless."  76-51...that's the score at halftime.  Yeah, I thought the Suns would do well against the Wizards.  Sure, they're the best team in the East but come on, it's the East!  But I didn't think they would do THIS well!  

Steve Nash is on fire.  It seems like he's just plain ticked.  According to the box score, he's 7-7 (3-3 in 3-point attempts) with 18 points and 8 assists.  How did Gilbert Arenas do?  He also has 18 points.  But he's shooting 5-12 (2-6 in 3-point attempts) with 3 assists.

Now, that's not to say the Wizards can't come back.  It's a 25 point lead which isn't easy to come back from but it can be done.  And if anyone can lead their team back, Gilbert Arenas can.

So if you're a Suns fan you should get excited...but don't get too excited - yet.  Wait until they've got a 25 point lead in the 4th.  Then you can breathe a sigh of relief.  Until then, root on the Suns and hope they can keep up their 67% shooting.
