Re: Suns Season Opener!
E. Clark was very impressive in the mins he got, I think he really fits in with the Suns theme
The team overall looked “ok” I think they looked like it was their first game haha, they need to improve defensively (who hasn’t said that lol) playing 4 mins of solid D in the 4th will not work against a good team (Lakers, Spurs, Celtics, Magic, etc..)
Amar’e looked very tentative and reluctant to do anything, he only took 6 shots, and I didn’t see him get a dunk or go to the rim haha, I think he has that “mental” wall from the eye injury, he’ll be ok once he gets past that, I wasn’t impressed with his play, I mean playing 40 mins and only getting 5 rebs, Suns can’t win most nights if Hill leads the team in rebs, he had 13, Amar’e needs to step up the rebounding ASAP!
On a brighter note, Nash and Hill looked great, both were ballin, Nash gets 15 of his 24 in the 4th, I don’t know why he don’t shoot more, he is deadly, and he seems to still get to the rim with ease, Hill on the other hand looks retro to me, he looks like he got his old Duke fade hair cut and took his game back a few years cuz he was on point! Very impressed with him performance!
If/When Amar’e gains the confidence to bang a little, they will start to sneak up on some teams, I don’t think anyone outside of the Valley is really giving them a chance to be honest, but hey its always fun to surprise people! I wanna also see this Channing Frye, I think with his ability to spread the floor that really opens things back up for Amar’e do work but well see, Collins, I don’t think is much of a pick up, I am sure once Lopez returns and is full speed, Collins will get the boot, unless he shows us all something in the limited mins he will see, oh I also thought Dragic played good, we need that, esp. seeing they call him the PG of the future! All in all, ok performance, nice win to start the season, cant wait for the rest of the games!
On a side note, I will be attending the Home Opener, Friday when the Suns take on the Warriors, so I will give my thoughts first hand off that game haha!
