Nash off to a fantastic start but I wish they'd get Jrich going (considering their record when he puts up good scoring numbers). As I type this, he's just scored his first 4 points. ;-D

Yeah, Amare and J-Rich haven't gotten many touches. It's been the Steve Nash Show so far. :-L

Ok - let's see how the 2nd unit responds to this somewhat slow start... :-o

I never understand why Gentry fields a true second unit in a game like this. I get it in the regular season. Why not leave Amare or J-Rich in with four bench players and try to get them going as the offensive focal point? Especially in a game like tonight when both of them are off to a slow start. With SA, you always have at least one of Duncan, Parker or Ginobili on the floor at all times. Just keep one of Nash, Amare or J-Rich on the floor to have a primary offensive focus.

Agreed but he did go to his main guys quicker (THANK GOD).

I'm loving how tough Amare is playing down low - altered quite a few shots at the rim already. ;-D

Grant Hill has been a stud for the whole playoffs despite his pretty weak looking stat line (8.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists). Proof positive that you can be higher in age but be lower in mileage.

Full credit to the Suns for the win here. They could have come out like lambs, but they didn't, and they got great play out of the guys they needed to - Amare got it done on the boards and outplayed Timmy, J-Rich didn't get locked down by Hill, and the Suns bench was very solid on the boards. Nively done. ;-D

I would be very pleased to end up being wrong with my pick of the Spurs in 6.
