The Phoenix Suns Keep On Scoring
Total Pro Sports – Even with the loss of Amare Stoudemire, the Phoenix Suns can’t be stopped. Last night they beat up on the Oklahoma City Thunder 140-118 (No this is not a typo).
The Phoenix Suns become the first team in 18 seasons to score 3 consecutive games with over 140 total points scored by one team.
“Jason Richardson added 34 points and Shaquille O’Neal 22 as the Suns became the first team in 18 seasons to score at least 140 points in three consecutive games. The Portland Trail Blazers did it from Nov. 13-17 in 1990. The Suns did it for the first time in franchise history.”
When I saw the scoreboard on Sports Center last night I did a double take to make sure I was seeing everything clearly. I wasn’t mistaken the Phoenix Suns are back and they can score. You can bet the recent firing of Terry Porter and the hiring of Alvin Gentry has gone well with the players.
“Phoenix improved to 3-0 since Terry Porter was fired and replaced by Gentry, who reinstated the Suns’ super-speed style that the team played so well under Mike D’Antoni. “
Hopefully the high flying Phoenix Suns are back for good. I think everyone would agree that the run and gun style play perfected by the Suns was missed. If only they could find a way of playing a little defense, the Suns might just have a chance at winning the NBA Championship.
