The 3rd GREATEST come back in franchise history. I gotta write something about it! I'm glad that I didn't turn it off after the first half. It was probably the best half of basketball I've seen since Shaq arrived in the Valley of the Suns. Great GREAT game indeed (ugly 1st half though).
Shaq and Amare, our frontcourt duo, combined for 61 points!!
And dig this:
Amare + Shaq + Nash
31/53 FG, 58.5%
8/12 3pt FG, 66.7%
27/30 FT, 90.0%
Just hop on the back of your superstars and let them take over.
Suns 81 - Nuggets 47 second half. Suns shooting 71% after shooting just 30% for 51 points in the 1st half. Down as many as 22 points and won by 15 at the end. Unreal. Un-freakin'-believable!
It took a hit in Nash's face by Carter to wake the whole damn team up, but they did step up in the 2nd half. Eddie Johnsom kept making lame excuses about being the 1st game after a long road trip and that's BS. You can come out a bit flat, but that's not an excuse. At some point you gotta pick your energy up.
BTW, Nash is 8-11 from three, unreal.
Eat it. Mouse.

Other than Grant Hill, who's been battling with injuries, we, as a team, had improved. I hightlighted the stats that really stand out in color. I think at this point, it's safe to say that this deal DOES improve us. I still don't want to delcare it a success until the playoffs and I don't want o jinx the team XD||
From last night:
Looks like they're enjoying each other there...ummm...XDDD
A litte win streak...
I think our defense has been excellent during this winning streak. How the hell do we let the other team shoot the ball 29 more times then we do and still win? That is just plain ridiculous. If it is not for the turnovers this is a blowout. The turnover numbers HAVE to come down and they will with time. I think when we get up a bunch we start to push it a little and then end up with a bunch of turnovers. But the fact that they took more shots and still couldnt convert does speak to our defense. Just need to fix our turnovers...dammit.
We have been keeping opposing teams under 45% shooting pretty much every game. Sometimes it is even closer to 40% then 45%. This is even with the obligatory fast break easy dunk for Amare's man! We are a top 10 defensive team in the league and that is amazing. People still wont see it though because they go by the final score like that determines defense. Lame.
RE: Giricek. He is better than I thought on D and he's very physical I've noticed. Uses his body and strength well and doesnt give up an inch. One thing he does is stay in front of his guy and make him work for the shot, instead of trying to go for the steal (LB, Banks RIPS) and getting hung out to dry. I also love his attitude as it seems like hes genuinely happy to be here and have a fresh start.
This upcoming road trip is big. We can win them all and I hope we don't have any let downs and LA continue to lose. And Atlanta too.
Way to go Mike!
Just a couple weeks ago I was calling for his freaking head for not making adjustments, not using the bench and most importantly not winning games...now 15 games into the Nash-Amare-Shaq era, I feel like I have to give Mike and the team at least some credit.
Mike has adjusted very well on the fly. Looking at how we used Shaq early on in the process compared to now is like night and day.
Mike also seems to be using his timeouts better. If I recall, he called one when we were up seven the other night agasint the Warriors, normally he would have waitied until it was a one or two posession game. Also note the field goal percentage we have given up recently. No, teams don't come into US Airways Center and just start missing for no reason. We are starting to play good defense and it shows. And I kind of liked the zone defense with Shaq. He's big enough to take up a lot of space inside and if we force the other team to take longer jumpers which can lead to long rebounds and easier fast breaks. The downside is of course offensive rebounds, which were a problem even with Shaq in the game last night....but we're definitely getting there defensively.
Don Nelson talked about us running a traingle like offense. I think that one "triangle" play we use is feeding shaq in the post and then having the guy in the corner and the wing cut thru the lane. The baseline cut is the flex cut, and either guy can step out if his man overplays or goes to double. Its a nice read and react play, that can help ISO Shaq is everyone moves to the other side of the floor. Before Shaq got here we usually play the pick and roll and sometimes more of a circle motion offense using picks and reacting to what the defense gives them. With Shaq we are still running motion, but it is more like a triangle with the focus going into the post instead of out on the wing or top of the key and creating a strong side and weak side instead of being so spread out. It's ok Mike, you can say you're using the triangle, PJ doesn't own it XD
I also saw Amare try the quick baseline spin that Shaq made famous, except he lost the handle and the ball went out of bounds...I wonder tho, is Amare developing a back to the basket game now that Shaq is here, or has he had some back to the basket moves that Mike has been reluctant to go to until recently? We have never looked to post Amare and feed him the ball in the traditional sense and its probably hurt us a lot in the past. Mike said he didn't like throwing the ball in the post beacuse it slowed the game down too much and guys would tend to just stand around (something I can never understand about...), guess he's had a change of heart XDD
By his willingness to change, and to play the reserves more (GG, Skinner), Mike has won back a significant chunk of my trust. This seems to be a pattern - where he gets really stubborn and then eventually does what he should...unlike
