  • Suns refuse to abandon run-and-gun offense

    The Phoenix Suns have notoriously been known around the league as a team that thrives off the run-and-gun offense. While the Suns haven’t resembled the high-octane offense of years past in the early going this season, it doesn’t appear they are abandoning their token trademark style of play anytime soon. “We want to stay up […]
  • Markieff Morris surprising everyone but the Suns

    Suns rookie Markieff Morris is playing 20 minutes a game for the team, averaging 9.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest. Numbers like that have put Morris in the company of some of the league’s best rookies, as he ranks eighth in scoring and is tied for second in rebounding. And, really, Morris has been […]
  • Nash, Hill, Gortat on NBA All-Star ballot

  • Suns look to burn limping Mavs

    The Phoenix Suns head to American Airlines Center Wednesday to take on the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks with a 2-3 record in tow.

  • Former Suns GM: Suns have to be bad to get better

    Former Phoenix Suns General Manager Steve Kerr knows this franchise, and his assessment of the team is quite telling. “The reality is you have to accept that to get good again, you have to be bad.

  • ESPN NBA analyst: Not a playoff team, Suns should trade Nash

    The Phoenix Suns have started the season with two losses, and if it’s possible, looking even worse than their 0-2 record would indicate. The offense has been abysmal and the defense not nearly good enough to compensate, and early indications are the Suns could be in for a long season. Though, if ESPN’s Jon Barry […]
  • Michael Redd hoping to revive career in Phoenix

    There was a time when Michael Redd was considered to be one of the best players in the NBA, a great scorer who could shoot from pretty much anywhere on the floor. That, however, was more than four years ago, and since then the former All-Star has battled multiple knee injuries, ailments that essentially robbed […]

  • A historic performance from Steve Nash

    Steve Nash summed up Wednesday night’s 103-83 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers pretty succinctly. “That was about as bad a game as I’ve had personally, and team-wise it obviously was as well,” Nash said. Unfortunately, the two-time league MVP is right. Since returning to the Suns via free agency in 2004, Nash has played in […]
  • Suns could get help in Redd

  • Suns embarrassed by Philly

    PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns were hoping to rebound from a lethargic offensive performance in their season-opening loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Instead, their offense took a step backward in an embarrassing 103-83 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers at U.S. Airways Center. The Suns struggled mightily offensively in the first half and trailed 48-34 […]
  • Grant Hill is working his way back to form

    Eric Gordon was dribbling the clock down as the fourth quarter came to a close with the Hornets trailing the Suns by one. Jared Dudley was in front of him, and the second Dudley took a slight step back Gordon rose and fired for what became the game winning shot. It wasn’t bad defense, but […]
  • Phoenix Suns want to push the tempo

    The Phoenix Suns’ 85-84 loss on opening night to the New Orleans Hornets made Planet Orange’s eyes bleed.

It was a lot to take […]
  • New look New Orleans Hornets are tough to gauge for Suns

    The name across the front of the jerseys and the colors will be the same, but everything else about the Phoenix Suns opening night opponent, the New Orleans Hornets will be different. The two teams split their four meetings last year, but that has become an irrelevant barometer with the Hornets featuring eight new players […]
