  • Kevin Johnson’s record is safe, for now

    Steve Nash’s pursuit of the franchise’s all-time mark for career assists is on hold.

  • Steve Nash out for Monday’s game vs. Mavericks

    A left-thigh bruise will keep Steve Nash out of the lineup Monday as the Suns host the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks. The injury, suffered Saturday in a win over the Memphis Grizzlies, came at the end of the game. “I need to be able to run. Right now I can’t really run,” he said following […]
  • Suns not done with Nash this summer?

    Steve Nash’s contract is set to run out at the end of the 2011-12 season, and it has generally been assumed he’ll leave the Suns for a team that is closer to winning an NBA championship. That may not be the case. According to, the Suns may actually be looking to sign Nash to […]
  • Steve Nash unsure if he’ll play vs. Dallas

    A right thigh bruise earlier in the month kept Steve Nash on the sidelines for one game.

  • Suns score season low, blown out by Blazers

    Sebastian Telfair helped the Suns avoid a franchise-worst scoring performance — and just in the nick of time. The Suns were trailing the Portland Trail Blazers 108-68 before Telfair hit a 25-foot three pointer with 0:18 seconds left in the fourth quarter to keep his team from tying an embarrassing milestone. The worst offensive showing […]
  • Forbes’ NBA Values List: Suns fall to #10

    The Phoenix Suns are headed in the wrong direction, and it has nothing to do with their disappointing 6-11 record. Since Suns’ current owner Robert Sarver bought the team in 2004 from Jerry Colangelo, the franchise value has decreased by $9 million. Sarver bought the Suns for $404 million and they are now reportedly worth […]
  • Suns lacking strong offense, playmakers

    The 6-11 Suns have yet to catch a break this season and changes will not come easy. They’ve struggled to find consistent success as their longest winning streak has been only two games, and their rankings are getting lower.

  • Gentry: ‘We’re just not shooting the ball well’

    For years, the Phoenix Suns have ranked as one of the best shooting and highest scoring games in the NBA. Last season, despite not qualifying for the playoffs, the Suns were 7th in the league in shooting percentage. Phoenix topped the league the prior five years. That’s not happening this season, and head coach Alvin […]
  • Lopez’s emotions not related to future with team

    A frustrating season for Robin Lopez hit a new low with a one-game suspension after he made contact with an official during Tuesday night’s home loss against Toronto.

  • Babby: Suns should not overreact to current struggles

    The Suns are currently 6-11, and have dropped their last three home games, all to some of the Eastern Conference’s bottom feeders. Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby, a guest on Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf, said he’s almost not allowed to panic. “We all have different functions and different roles,” Babby said. […]

  • Suns lose to Raptors for first time since ‘Hey Ya!’ was popular

    February 10, 2004. This date may not mean much to you, but it is kind of important in the rivalry that is Suns vs. Raptors. February 10, 2004 was the last time Toronto topped Phoenix – until Tuesday night. It was also a time when OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” was the number one song on Billboard’s […]
  • Suns need to part ways with Robin Lopez

    It is time for the Phoenix Suns to recognize that Robin Lopez will never amount to anything more than a below- average backup center. And once they do that they need to find a team that is willing to trade for the 7-footer who was the 15th pick in the 2008 NBA draft out of […]
  • Frustration setting in with Suns

    Tuesday night’s 99-96 loss to the Toronto Raptors revealed a lot of not-so-flattering traits on the face of the Phoenix Suns. First of all, the Raptors had lost eight straight games, mostly due to a sputtering offense that had churned out a less-than-spectacular 81 points per game during the stretch. Secondly, the Raptors never beat […]
  • Former GM Kerr: Letting Lopez go would not be good

  • Former GM Kerr: You can’t get a whole lot of value [for Nash]

    Even if the Suns were inclined to trade Steve Nash, there’s a decent chance they’ll be unable to do so. Sure, Nash is still one of of the best point guards in the game, as he’s averaging 14.3 points and 10.1 assists per game, numbers that are not far off from some he posted during […]
  • Nash’s play has surprised Cuban, but owner would still let him go

    By his own admission, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban let Steve Nash depart as a free agent in the summer of 2004 because he didn’t think the player would last this long.

  • Suns catch break with Nowitzki out

    The Suns are catching another break on their grueling road trip with Dirk Nowitzki being held out of Monday’s game against Dallas. The Suns, who are 6-9, look to go over .500 for the road trip.
