The Spurs are also going to try and establish Tim Duncan in the paint early on in the game to set the tone, which means Collins can essentially eat up a quick couple of fouls if necessary to inhibit the Spur's game plan.

Don't forget the most important thing might be is to have either Amare or Channing on the floor at all times. The Suns offense would stall if it would have Amundson and Lopez/Collins on the floor at the same time.

I'm impressed. Winning at home is one thing, but winning game three in San Antonio? That's more in the way of a statement. B-)

All hail Goran Dragic! :-L

He WAS due for a good game after the first two but WOW, who expected him to whip the 4 time champs by himself?!?

Btw, the Suns are now 31-4 when Jrich scores 20 or more. ;-7

Never dreamed it'd be a sweep. Good thing though considering Nash's eye needed the rest - Suns get a full week now. ;-D

His footwork in the paint was incredible. I also loved the step back three and the and1 on the corner three.

Unleash the Dragon!
