Question If you were a coach, how would you stop the Suns?

i mean damn... this team just doesn't give a damn defensively, but they'll blow you outta the water on offense...

GREAT point guard
GREAT 3 point shooters
GREAT bigmen (mostly amare and marion)

i mean jeeze...

any suggestions on how to slow these guys down?

I'd just tell my players to play defense.

Take a note from the Lakers game plan from the playoffs last year. It was a good game plan and despite the Lakers losing (to the better team), they took them to 7 games.

Id trap Nash here and there unexpectedly and slow the game down on Offense....

once they get you trying to run with them, they usually win

Transition defense is the hardest defense to develop and the Suns exploit that brilliantly. If somehow you can get players to play good transition defense and and slow the game down, you'll win. A lot easier said than done. The Spurs were really good at that two years ago.

Play either 3-2, 1-3-1, 3-2 Matchup or a 1-2-1 zone on defense.

On offense, take the shot clock down to 10-13 seconds before running a play. That way you shut down the Suns hitting a shot every 20 seconds.

that would only limit your chances at scoring

what i would do is double amare in the post and put constant pressure on nash the whole game

You can't do that to them as much this season though, because Amare and Kurt are back. They make it a little harder than just T2 and Diaw.

The way I've noticed to be effective against the Suns is:

#1. Shoot a high % from the field. This helps keep the Suns of the fast break. Be patient and run your offense. Don't always take the first open shot from the outside. Make the extra pass, and make them expend energy on defense.

#2. Make sure one man runs back on defense after a shot is attempted. The Suns (especially Marion) like to release after a shot attempt and it gets them easy shots on the other end.

#3. Play some sort of zone defense. You can't do it to them over the course of a whole game because eventually their shooters are going to get you, but mix it up, collapse on Amare and force him to be a playmaker.

#4. Don't get suckered into playing at their pace. This is the most important thing. Too many teams run with the Suns, and right now, no one does it better.

I don't think zones will beat the Suns.

I think a big thing that made the Lakers so successful is the Odom/Marion matchup. Marion gets so many fastbreak points normally, and it sparks the offense and the team, and gives them big momentum. Odom was constantly backing Marion down and tiring him out, and basically keeping Shawn underneath the basket while he was on defense, to prevent those easy fastbreak points.

It seemed to be really effective, although with Amare back, it makes it all the harder.

its not that hard to stop the suns, but most teams cant prepare for the suns in the regular season because there is little time between games.

If Im playing the suns, i make NAsh out score me. I cut off all the other passing lanes on his pick and rolls. Than I guy at Diaw and Amare down low.

keep the game close and in the 4th quarter out execute them. Suns are not great in 4th quarter execution.
