Default Phoenix looking to rally against San Antonio

PHOENIX With Phoenix trailing San Antonio two games to none, Suns coach Mike D'Antoni is trying to figure out what needs to change in Game 3 of the Western Conference playoff series. "I can't tell you that," D'Antoni said. "How about we just play better?"

The Suns played well enough to build double-digit leads in each of the first two games but couldn't close the deal either time. In Game 1, San Antonio needed two late 3-pointers as it rallied for a 117-115 double-overtime victory. In Game 2, the Spurs blitzed Phoenix 27-11 in the third quarter on their way to a decisive 102-96 victory.

The losses have left the Suns in a familiar position fighting back against San Antonio, which has eliminated them in three of the Suns' last four postseason appearances. In the teams' last three series, the Suns have led the Spurs only once after Game 1 in 2003. The Suns have overcome an 0-2 playoff deficit only once in a best-of-five series against the Los Angeles Lakers in 1993.

Both teams took Wednesday off and were not available to the media. Before they left San Antonio, the Suns vowed to make a stand when the series resumes on Friday night at US Airways Center. "They just did what they were supposed to do," center Shaquille O'Neal said after San Antonio's Game 2 victory on Tuesday night. "They protected their home court. Now we have two at our place. On Friday we've got to get Game 3 and just take it from there." For their part, the Spurs aren't looking ahead to the second round.

Suns desperately need to win tonight. I don't know why Suns didn't drew at least one in San Antonio, because like it was said Suns played 2 very good games. But, it all comes down to who's tougher and mentally Spurs are probably the best in the NBA. Although I don't like the Spurs, I have to say I respect them because they are really good. I just hope Suns can somehow bounce back.
