Here Come the Suns!

Last night, the Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Lakers in game three of the Western Conference Finals. The Lakers now lead the Suns 2-1 in the series. What is more exciting than the fact that we finally have a series that could go seven games is the way Phoenix won this game. They dominated inside. Everyone was saying that the Lakers are too tall for the Suns and that they would easily lose the series, but it was the Suns who looked too tall on Sunday night. Amar'e Stoudemire played like a man possessed, scoring 41 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Robin Lopez added 20 points while being a fantastic defensive presence. The Suns also tend to rely on their 3 point shooting, but on Sunday night, they made 5-20. Imagine, if the Suns are able to sprinkle in their normally fantastic 3 point shooting, they might be able to conquer the Lakers and pull of the upset. Don't count on the Suns winning the series with another game like this, but it's nice that they have the ability to win even when their shots aren't falling.
