Default Thoughts on the Loss against the Sixers

Ok well watching the game twice I saw a few things.

Downsides:

We lost

Alan Iverson


Upsides: Team showed great teamwork and didnt depend on one big star.

Barbosa Kept his speed

Raja proved he was still valuable in eveyr category

We hit a ton of threes

Had alot of steals

Kurt Thomas finally showed he could play some decent defense

And Finally!!!!! Amare played some decent minutes with only a few slip ups and showed us a few promising flashes of his Ability.

Sorry I dont know the Stats guys.

HANG IN THERE!!!!!!! (There's another Suns game on espn2 Tomorrow tune in everyone.)

Correct me if im wrong but Kurt was the main reason why our defense even APPEARED tob e good last year. After he went down, we went back to trying to outscore the opponent. He actually was playing WELL defense. What do you mean he showed up finally?

Sorry like what i meant was after his injury i wasnt sure that he could still play some decent defense it was still shaky in his brief playoof appearance. I should have clarified that im sorry.

Nash played 34 minutes in the preseason game.

What about the rather odd omission in the box score that excluded all players named J. Jones.

He looked fine he was still playing conservative. there were times when he kind of hesitated as to whether or not he should dunk but that wont be happening by the regular season. all his points were scored off dunks.

To me, Amare just looked out of rhythm. He also was pressing a bit at times to get to the rim. But alot of that was because he wasnt catching the ball in good post position, he had to flash out farther than heŽd like to get it. I think its a bit of the Suns not being used to having a legit post threat, and Amare just being out of rhythm. But if thats his biggest worry (and not his knees) than heŽll have a great year.

Lol i agree it was only his 2nd game playing against a team othe rthan his own in a year he was bound to be a little sloppy.
