The Suns are a funny bunch. They say they weren't going out for revenge when they played the Wizards last night. Then they come out firing and get a 21 point lead in the first quarter.
People have commented on this blog that arriving at the game 2 hours beforehand wasn't an excuse for losing and that the Suns wouldn't use that as an excuse. Then Mike D'Antoni said after the game last night, ""We weren't the same team that came into Phoenix (Dec. 22). I think we surprised them a little bit." That sounds like he's saying the Suns were a bit tired after their ordeal.
Oh, and one last quote from the Coach before we leave: "I wouldn't trade my job for anything in the world." Well said, coach. Well said.
