Steve Nash

To hijack the immortal words of The Outfield’s classic 80′s hit: “The Suns went on a vacation far away/Come around and talk it over.”  So we wanted to relive some of the best moments from the recent five-game road trip and spotlight our favorite photos, quotes and performances.

Player of the Trip

This is a tough category to judge. Do we go based only on the boxscore? If so, then Jason Richardson gets the nod because his 19.8 points per game average just edges out Amar’e Stoudemire’s 19.4.

Or do we go with the X-factor, Captain Intangible, Jared Dudley who’s fourth quarter heroics in Philadelphia merely brought to light his consistent play – even if he doesn’t shine on the stat sheet. After the big win in Boston, Coach Gentry said of Dudley, “I’ll tell you, that guy is a coach’s dream. He’s a coach’s dream. We never even, I don’t even know what he did, because we never look at the stat sheet with him. But he always comes up with a big defensive play, with a big steal.”

But in the end we had to go with the man of amazing performances. Steve Nash started the trip with a 30-point night in Miami and his 16-point, 12-assist effort in Boston was the first of three-straight double-doubles that he capped off with a 21-point, 20-assist performance in Philadelphia. For a closer look at his 20 dimes, check out this video.

Quote of the Trip

“It’s amazing. He just keeps on coming. It just appeared that he was getting stronger as the game went on. It’s extremely difficult when they get the lead and the ball is in his hands. He makes all the right plays.” – Miami Heat Head Coach Erik Spoelstra on Steve Nash

    Daniel how fun is it to be around this group of guys? Their chemistry seems to be off the charts and not only because they are winning.

    Road trip recap, simple. A team with some old over the hill stars everyone said were finished, some untested rookies, a team that the experts scoffed at as to short, don’t play defense, don’t rebound and have no heart suddenly find that playing together just happens to make them very special. Is it some Hollywood Sports Movie? No, it’s for real and they are called the Phoenix Suns. Don’t you just love it!!!!

    I live n LA and I would like to know if there are any PHX fans who would like to band together and go to a bar on game nights or does anyone want to host/be invited to PHX house parties?

    Obviously we could all get a bus and travel to PHX and catch a home game too.

    Continue the good work!

    Wow!! What can you continue to say about the Suns after watching them shred a good Hornets team? Instead, congrats Amare it’s evident you have finally bought into the “team” chemistry concept. To me, it’s the last peice we need to possibly post the biggest sports story in a decade. Don’t forget, Barbossa isn’t 100%, Lopez is coming back. Jared Dudley, your name is going to look so good on that sixth man award.

    If we could beat the Celtics we could beat the lakers. We can also beat four teams from the east.We could go to the finals and beat any east team we will face. Go Suns and beat the lakers.
