The Lakers dominated the paint, but the Suns are missing their starting center in Robin Lopez, who could've given Channing Frye a litle rest. Still, the Fakers were without Gasol, and Gasol is at least a little better than Lopez, but at the end of the season, we will see who has the rings on their fingers!!!

Once you use the word "Fakers" you're entire statement loses all credibility. Thanks for playing!

About as real as they can be at this point in the season (and they're so much better being back to their style of play instead of Shaq's), but I just can't see them winning it all over the likes of the Lakers or the Celtics.

But, it's a long season - anything goes.

They are good and they keep trying hard..
#12 | 1714 days ago

I'm a hardcore homer fan, but I know their hot start is due to the easiness of their schedule. I doubt they will finish in the top 4 at the end of the season. If they can stay healthy, they might make it to the second round of the playoffs. Most of the teams in the West are filled with older players, so they may have a chance to do something.

Not after what I saw what the Lakers did to them the other night.

The Phoenix Suns are completely imaginary.  Steve Nash is the King of the Gumdrop Forest.

Easy schedule? Didn't they have a huge road trip where they beat both Miami and Boston? That's not easy, IMO. I think the Suns can get to the WCF if they can (as usual) get past the spurs.

Yeah, it takes a real expert to see the Knicks suck.  Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles can see how bad the Knicks suck.  This question was about the Suns.

For the Suns this year; When they learn how to control the Boards and play Defense when it counts, they will win the Championship!

This is exactly right. The Suns are awful on defense and have no inside presence for rebounds. They are entertaining because they play a lot of high scoring games, but without defense and rebounding they won't get out of the Western Conference playoffs.

the suns are a good team and can go all the way... they just got to learn to keep the lead in the second half. seems like ever time they are in the lead they start to slack off and lose it.

The Suns have corrected their deficiencies and have learned from their mistakes as the season has progressed. They have improved on their defense and dominate the rebounds in most games. Steve Nash at times has more assists then the entire opposing team and Amare has finally found his grove. The Suns are the complete package. They have an outstanding bench and their starters are not selfish and think as team. I feel the Suns will definately get to the Western Conference finals and have a good shot of winning it all this year.

The same thing they are puffing on in LA, I'd bet. Gonna be really funny when LA gets knocked out of the playoffs by OKC.

the only way they could be a championship team is if the entire nba forgot how to play defense don't get me wrong the suns are my team but i think they are too offense oriented to win a championship

Phoenix doesnt have enough inside depth. Frye is not a center, he will get beasted in playoffs down low. Suns have had better teams and always disappoint. Defense wins championships, something Suns have always lacked. Charlotte Bobcats have better chance of winning championship because they are best defense in league, check the stats.

 I was in agreement with your post until the part about the Bobcats. They wouldn't even make it past the first round of the playoffs and that would probably be a sweep.

Bobcats play above .500 ball against playoff teams, plus have one of best records at home in league.. might get beat, but definetly not swept

My first post concerned how teams that play defense win championships. The reason Phoenix will not win because they do not play enough defense. I brought in Bobcats as a reason teams win because of defense.

Teams win championships with a balance of both defense and offense. Bobcats and Suns have one thing in common, neither has ever won and neither will win this year.

Looked like the same old Suns losing game 1 at home to the Blazers!

they are just a better version of the Dallas Mavericks, sure they will make the playoffs every year but never win a chip.
