  Suns Even Series with Lakers


lakers vs phoenixThe Phoenix Suns are finally making some noise in the Western Conference Finals by winning Games 3 and 4 by 9 points. What’s amazing about this turnaround is that the Suns still haven’t had any success guarding Kobe Bryant. In Game 3 he posted 36 points, 9 rebounds, and 11 assists. In Game 4 he had 38 points, 7 rebounds, and 10 assists. He also shot above 50% in both games. However, the contributions from some of the Lakers’ other options were lacking. Lamar Odom and Ron Artest both shot below 50% in Games 3 and 4 and in the 4th quarter of Game 4 especially the Phoenix defense was forcing them to take a lot of the shots.

Part of me still isn’t willing to entertain the thought of Phoenix coming back to win this series. They still haven’t won a game away from home in the series and they struggled to play consistent defense in Games 1 and 2. As I saw Amar’e Stoudemire go off for 42 points in Game 3, I was thinking that they just got a superhuman performance, and this is going to be their only win. But their success in Games 3 and 4 has gotten me thinking about the possibility of them pulling it out.
