With another victory over the red hot Denver Nuggets, the Suns have twice this month been able to break Nugget winning streaks. The first victory snapped an eight game winning streak, and the second, a six game. This once again proves the Suns dominance over the Western Conference. For, it is not only that the Suns are able to have highlightreel plays night in and night out, it is that they are able to put teams away in the fourth quarter like they did tonight. With about 4 mins left the Suns went on a 13-2 run and eventually finished of the Nuggets the way championship teams do. It will be interesting to see the showdown between the Spurs and the Suns in the playoffs, because defense wins championships, but the Suns may just be able to re-write the books with their style of play.

Well said, lets hope that is the case.

The suns are proving in the latter half of the season that they are not just able to blow out second tier teams but also win against the leagues best. Excluding a lapse against Miami they've played consistently well against contenders.
