I'm not sure that's it. I don't know that teams are trying that much harder in the playoffs. I mean certainly the level of play is more intense, but historically the more physical teams have had success in the playoffs, particularly those with an All-Star big man.

Phoenix just hasn't cared about getting an inside presence since Barkley left. I mean Stoudemire probably could dominate like Barkley used to, but he's too busy playing second fiddle to Nash.

Yeah, they shoot too well to play zone. Play good man-man defense. Make sure you rotatate on defense, protect the basket and hold them to one shot.

On offense, attack the basket, control the tempo, take high % shots, battle for every rebound and draw contact. Definately don't allow them to sucker you into making it a jump shooting contest.

Why do people keep acting like they're unbeatable? A good disciplined team can beat them in a best of 7.

depends on personell which merits style of play. Now that STAT is healthy I think the only 2 teams that have a legit shot at sropping PHO is San Antonio and Dallas. Think about it. During the 15-game win streak they only beat 2 500+ sqauds, Orl and Hou. San Antonio counters by throwing the ball into the post, attacking the rim to get to the line which slows the team down. I remember TP once saying that Pop will only let the Spurs selectively run with Pho. Dallas can play similarly to Pho' pace. however defending the pick n' roll with Nash and Amare is the problem. and when Phoneix' perimeter j's aren't falling, Dallas can simply counter by having Dirk stretch out the interior d, creating a mismatch which opens up options. Harris can also attack the paint w/ his speed kind of like Barbosa. I have noticed that every time you play Pho, you have to take at leat one of their strengths away. wether it be the perimeter game or lomiting their transition opportuinies. We did see Washington on friday wear the Suns down by playing at their pace

Hire somebody to "accidently" run over Nash, Marion and Stoudamire in a "tragic car accident"
