A few things to chew on before tonight's game with the Nugs...


  • Behind the Box Score, where Suns/Spurs equals pointless/classic - Ball Don't Lie - NBA Blog - Yahoo! Sports
    Lets clear up a few points here that KD missed: 1) The Spurs doubled Frye in the post b/c they switched a guard on him and even Frye can post up Parker or Hill. 2) Nash passed off because he stumbled (probably fouled) and didn't have the balance to get a shot off but yeah, Frye could have camped outside the line and 3) It was indeed a GREAT GAME.
  • Goodbye, sweet Ball Don't Lie blog - Ball Don't Lie - NBA Blog - Yahoo! Sports
    Best of luck to Skeets and Tas and crew. Can't wait for the new TBJ at The Score. Well deserved. Looking forward to Trey's wit on BDL..
  • Health concern for Hawks - TrueHoop Blog - ESPN
    While Atlanta fans reflexively blame an attack that’s heavy on Joe Johnson isolations late in games, one big reason Atlanta’s offense has gone sideways of late is because of Jamal Crawford’s shoulder injury. He suffered a partial left shoulder separation just before the All-Star break and has tried to play through it, but the impact on his shooting stroke has been clear. (I did not know about this...)
  • Inside the NBA: Should "Bobcats'' name depart, too?
    MJ bought the Bobcats and already there's talk of big change?
  • VIDEO: Jason Richarson Misses Game-Tying Dunk, Proves Curses Do Exist - SB Nation
    None of that mattered, though, because they were playing the Spurs. Strange things happen when the Suns play the Spurs in the AT&T Center. During a playoff series three years ago, they got Donaghy'd in one game and had their two best inside players suspended for leaving the bench in another. Two years ago, they lost one game when Tim Duncan of all people hit a three-pointer. Now, they lose a game when arguably one of the best dunkers of all time missed a wide-open slam dunk.

    This isn't about Amare Stoudemire, the Suns, or that ridiculous dunk from yesterday's game.
  • SUNS: Postgame Quotes - Suns @ Spurs - Feb 28, 2010
    Suns guard Jason Richardson (On missing the dunk) "It happens. I went up and just missed the dunk. I don’t like to miss dunks especially during crunch time but sometimes it just happens. You can’t dwell on things like that. We battled back and as a team we did our best. We just came up a little short."
  • Hometown shaped its famous Sun, Steve Nash
    Stop at the childhood home, schools and hangouts of Steve Nash, and you learn quite a bit.

    * Nash on how he felt physically: “It’s a little tough playing at 12 o’clock for me with my back. I got through it OK. I actually felt decent once the game started. I can’t complain about how I felt. Hopefully, I can stay on top of this over the next three (games in four nights). If I have to sit one, I have to sit one but I plan to play them all and hopefully my health will accompany those thoughts.”

  • Month of small ball could be big factor in Cavs' future
    Duffy is in the process of discussing with the Suns whether their first-round pick, Earl Clark, should go to Phoenix's D-League team in Iowa now that Amar'e Stoudemire is sticking around for the rest of the season and frontcourt minutes are likely to dry up.

    we then moved on to Stoudemire’s, which is across the street from US Airways and part of a food court/shopping center. It looked very upscale from the exterior and that carried through inside, although it was more of a nightclub than a sports bar. We were there 2hrs+ before the game and the place was empty, but it’s reasonable to think that this place could be the place to go postgame. This being the day after the NBA trading deadline and Amare Stoudemire being the subject of many trade rumors, I asked about job security. Our bartender shared that Amare only licensed his name to the place and that the owners had been in the process of exiting from that relationship since the beginning of the season. Apparently the city is ready to say goodbye to their once beloved STAT.
