And to all Amare doubters, no, he may never achieve the 37ppg on Duncan he once had, but the old Amare wouldn't have thrown up 24-23 with really solid defense on Timmy either.

Not slighting Amare because hes been better than I though he would be, but the Suns did just have 3 days off before this game, it will be a different story in the playoffs when you dont get any rest.

yeah and 5 of those games were at the start of the year when diaw was out of shape, bell wasnt in rhythm yet and amare wasnt starting yet.

just like mavs fans dont count their 0-4 start i dont count ours. plus the loss to utah went to OT WITHOUT nash.

anyone that honestly thinks the lakers can beat us in a 7 game series this year after losing to us without kt and especially amare last year needs their head examined.

Yea, and which team do you think is better conditioned to handle that? Spurs biggest problem is that they don't have 5 guys that can run with the Suns, they used to, but Finley, Bowen, Horry, Elson and Barry all look like dinosaurs out there compared to guys like Nash, Barbosa, Marion, Stoudemire and Banks.

Elson is twice as fast as his replacement Finley. The only thing Finley does better is brick shots.

No series in the west will be a sweep, so you will be playing grueling playoff games every other night with no rest for 2 months or so.

He will have his nights in the playoffs, but expect alot of averge and a few duds.

Yes, but this team is far deeper than the previous Suns playoff teams. They have guys who can pick up the slack, like James Jones, Barbosa, Kurt Thomas, Diaw and even Banks who has shown promise.

No they're not,Nash is averaging more minutes this year than he has in the past few seasons.

Nash is also in the best shape of his career.

Well part of the problem has been with James Jones shooting awful, not being able to get into the rotation, but since they switched back to the leather ball, he has been unbelievable, so he is firmly back in the rotation. Banks has been sketchy, but if he can get more playing time, especially against teams like the Spurs and Mavs, Suns will be in great shape. Kurt Thomas should be back within a month as well. Barbosa off the bench is almost always terrific, so Suns look far better than in previous years.

Suns will only play 7 people in the playoffs at most unless they're struggling with fatigue, Kurt Thomas wont get much time, we all know that.

Plus if he does, that kinda helps Dallas vs them, because that will allow us to play Dampier.

Like you keep your mouth shut during Mavs/Suns regular season games. Give me a break.

Kettle, meet the pot.
