Mavericks Knock Suns Out of Orbit

Mavericks Knock Suns Out of Orbit

Postby Arlo » Mon May 16, 2005 5:40 pm

The longer this year's playoffs go on, the more interesting they get. One of the most intriguing series is the showdown between the Suns and the Mavericks, now deadlocked at two games apiece following yesterday's Dallas victory.

How did the Mavs manage to topple the mighty Suns? Jamey Feuer analyzes the keys to Dallas' winning game plan. Enjoy! ;-D

Right on! ;-D

The Suns were 2-5 in games Nash missed this year. And their bench is practically of no use to them (in games McCarty scored in double digits, they were still only 1-5). They need their PG to "jitterbug" around everywhere and create holes and opportunities. When that's not happening, their not an effective basketball team.

RE: SPURS HAVE SUNS NUMBER

It would seem that the Spurs are the one team that can run with the Suns... match, if not exceed, their offensive firepower... and lock 'em down defensively.

Ginobli has played lights-out Basketball, Duncan is obviously more than a match for Stoudemire, and the Suns really have no answer for 7 footer, Nazr Mohammed. Mo's shot blocking has harassed the team, as has his rebounding. In addition, savvy Robert Horry antagonized Stoudemire into foolish fouls yesterday. If the team had taken 1 of the past 2 games I'd give them a shot. Down 2 games??? Phoenix might win 1 of the next 2, but I expect San Antonio to win in 5- if not sweep.

I simply can't imagine the Suns playing better Hoops (they shot close to 55%) then they did yesterday. Sure, maybe they can cut down on turnovers and fouls of frustration... but the Spurs are a force to be reckoned with, and apparently the better team.

Agreed. As good as the Suns have looked at times, coming back from two games down is going to be very, very tough...
