With a healthy Raja, would the Suns have beaten Dallas?
 
If Raja Bell hadn't gotten hurt during the conference finals, and had to play hurt all those games, would the Suns have beaten the Mavs and gotten to the finals?

Good question. I don't know if they would have beaten Dallas, but I do think they would've played better. After his return in Game 4, Dallas guards really exposed his lack of later movement on D, and made him a lot less effective on D. He didn't have his legs, so all his 3's were coming up short.

Dallas is a tough team. They are so deep, and I think it was our lack of depth that killed us moreso than Raja being hurt. They were running on fumes.

As Rab said Dallas have so much more depth than us, plus Raja playing injured and K.T. and Amare out injured didn't make matters better for us.

Probably not. His 3-point shooting and defense certainly would have helped though. I imagine with him fully healthy we would've won game 2, 5, or 6, and then lost in 7. Dirk and Howard were just too good.

...nope
 
No, the only result would be a Game 7.
