    Nash and Hill sitting out tonight's game vs the Clippers since this is the middle game of a back to back to back. The old guys need the rest. Hopefully the younger Suns will be tired tomorrow night and if the Pistons run -run-run and they will tire the whole Suns team out.

    Chances of winning this game would be more if both the Suns old men (nash & hill) played against Clippers. And they still got the 'W' against the Clipppers. Wow! Anyway, if we can prevent Frye from all his 3 bombs, we may have a chance. Our bigs have to stay alert on such plays instead of camping inside the paint on D.

    I was so disappointed by that Clipper loss to the Suns.....everyone on the Clipper board is already calling for Vinny Del's head....just as we did here with Flipper when the team was actually good. The difference is it seems that VDN is ruining CP3 confidence and he is even starting to lose games for them as he can't overcome the bad D or bad FT shooting...

    The Suns are hot right now, but the Pistons D is better than the Clippers, so we will see what happens tonight.

    It's sounds like Joel Meyers, the former Laker announcer who took over for Chick Hearn when he passed 10 years ago. At first I thought I was listening to a Laker game...

    So far the Pistons are looking better against the Suns than the Clippers did last night. Time to wear down the Suns and end their winning streak..

    Pistons fade in the end as coach Frankie stuck with Big Ben all the way to the end even though he did a decent job in there. In fact he scored 6 of the Pistons last 8 pts. Unfortunately the pistons only scored 6 points in the last 4 and half minutes allowing the Suns to close the game 14-6 run after the game was tied at 95-95. (Final score Suns 109- Pistons 101

    I am not sure what happen to Monroe, but Ben Wallace came in for him at the end of the 3rd qtr and we never saw Moose again. In fact this may have been the first game this year that Big Ben outscored Monroe...(10 to 8).

    Stuckey continued his scoring, but probably did not take as many shots as he did in the previous games as both Tay and Knight took 16 apiece compared to his 13. Maybe he should have been more aggressive???

    The Suns became the 4th team to win all three games of a back to back to back joining the Heat, Thunder and Bulls. Earlier in the season they along with the Pistons are one of the two teams that have lost all three of the triple backers...There maybe one other team in this futile club, but can't recall whom that is at the moment.

    Oh by the way...as far as the old men go who had to sit out last night, Nash scored three points, but dished out 17 assists, and Grant Hill scored 14pts and had three assists, rebounds and steals......

    Moose? A small injury, my guess. They are on the long road now and rehabing is out of question.

    I think Frank sat Monroe because he was getting abused on D in the p & r.

    Stuckey has put his hand up and said "my fault" more this year than I have ever seen him in years past.

    Shannon Brown looks like he weighs 300 lbs in his Suns uni.

    The Suns announcers were talking about the Clips game like it was for the title.

    The PHX front court really gave the Pistons trouble. I wasn't expecting that.

    I haven't seen a guy give Monroe as much trouble both ways as Gortat did.

    Gortat is like an all-star with Nash spoon feeding him.

    That was an extremely close game throughout until the very end when our best player couldn't re-enter the game. Pretty entertaining one.

    The Pistons are actually kind of fun to watch again. Stuckey has really been on fire since the all-star break. What's up with benching GM in the end of games? Is Frank coaching with a longterm perspective or is he just trying to send a message?
