Tmac is out for this game again. I think we should win this game. Hope we play better than against Raps. I'm hearing it was ugly for both sides actually.

Suns lead 17-7 with 6 and change to go.

We have Diaw playing center against Yao Ming. I don't know whats funnier, that or the Rockets havent gotten him the ball ONCE. Diaw's freaking 6 ft 8 lol. But he's gotten good position on him though.

Suns lead 56-46 at halftime.


Suns have 20 assists to just 3 turnovers. Diaw playing very well. As is Marion.


And I swear, Marion won't be appreciated by the common fan till he's gone. It's like there's something people have against him and it pisses me off. He still posts the numbers. And they're not garbage points because w/o him we'd lost a lot more. Even last yr.


God, people are morons.

6 ft 8 inch Boris Diaw just blocked Yao Ming.


James Jones is not shy. Good thing he doesn't get down on himself. Just drained 2 3's. Suns up 69-63

I am actually very impressed with Diaw and James. Man, our team suddenly becomes so deep. lol

The only guy I don't like is Kurt Thomas. When he steps in, Nash can't find a way to cooperate with him. Maybe it's his slowness/reaction or maybe Kurt is there only to provide defense, but I really don't think Nash and Kurt can play together. Am I the only one thinks this way?

Diaw is great. He can shoot, can drive, can pass and play some solid defense at 6'8. Bell is a great addition too!

Jim Jackson played a decent game. :D

Eddie House is not good at passing (well, at least for tonight). But I am sure he is good at scoring and can probably replace Barbosa easily.

And Diaw was playing as center ...

Now you can understand another reason why we love Mike :D :banana:

Go Michelino go !!!
lol yep, when Grant and Thomas were not in there he was. Mostly majority of the game.

I think he guarded everyone on the court at point in time lol. Breen and Walton had nothing but nice things about him. They're even excited to do the game on ESPN against the Nets at 1030 ET

lol, when I saw the starting lineup I thought "Mikes lost his mind"

Then, Diaw starts holding his own against the 1# draft choice we call Yao Ming.

Nash and Marion played like superstars. And I happen to like the lineup the Suns went with. All the starters can run, shoot, pass, and decent rebounding.

I hope we stick with that starting lineup.

Yep, I wish we had Amare just to see how he would fit with this group. I think we could be better than last yr. And I don't mean winning more than 62 games.


But we'll probably have Barbosa in there instead of Jones when he gets back.

Thomas does seem awkward in there. But he's just a body in there.

Yep, Bell gives us some toughness and he can shoot pretty well. And will have a lot of open looks and prolly have a better shot selection than Q.

Jackson did start playing better. He was 0-9. counting last game and his first 2 shots of this game.

did diaw ever guard yao one on one? the suns kept yao from getting the ball when they didn't guard bowen at all and instead doubled yao all over the court, but i would be very hesitant to say diaw held his own against yao at center.

yeah he did more than few times. he got in front of him and also denied them throwing the ball in early on. but yes we did double him.

Nice win. Going up the Pacific division ranking. James Jones and Boris Diaw steps up big time. The team is about as good as last season offensively (thanks to depth). I think it's going to be even better once Amare returns.

As a Diaw fan, it's nice to see him play the way he did tonight. He's that talented. 17 pts 7-10 FG 10 reb 6 ast 2 stls 2 blocks and 0 turnovers :clap: . He's aggressive tonight. And that's how he's suppose to be. Especially when Amare is still out.

Jimmy's great too. He just go out and play. I thought losing Barbosa would really hurt the team offensive wise. But, the team always have somebody that steps up. One night is House, Jimmy chips in too, and tonight James Jones.

So... join the Diaw fan club anybody?? :biggrin:
