If you've watched these two teams the last 5 or 10 years, it's apparent by now that things are different. The Suns just look like the better overall team during the regular season and now in the playoffs. They exude a toughness and are now able to stand tall during the last 5 minutes of games than season's past.
However, I'm a little worried about calling it a series. You guys remember what happened a couple of years ago? The Hornets were up 2-0 on the Spurs...
It's definitely not over but like I've been telling everyone who will listen this is a different Suns team with greater depth, better defense and mental toughness. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't really nervous but if the Suns can pickup one game in San Antonio I'd feel a lot better coming back to PHX 3-1. But for the next two games, the pressure is on the Spurs big time.
Jared Dudley was the x-factor yesterday and he changed the course of the game in the second quarter. How is that J-Rich and Dudley for Boris Diaw and Raja Bell trade looking now?
