  • Suns coach Gentry rewards team with day off

    For only the second time this season — and second time this month– the Suns are a winning basketball team. After back-to-back losses to Miami and Orlando on consecutive days, the Suns rebounded with wins at Indiana and at Cleveland to earn a split of their four-game road trip. The Suns (25-24) sit 10th in […]
  • Suns need bench to come up big

    If the Phoenix Suns are going to reach the playoffs this season, their bench will be a big reason why. Regarded as one of the game’s top second units just two years ago, the group consisting of Sebastian Telfair, Michael Redd, Shannon Brown, Markieff Morris and Robin Lopez has found a comfort level since the […]
  • Season turned around, how far can Suns go?

    The Phoenix Suns have gone from lottery discussions to the playoff picture over the last few weeks, a turnaround that has surprised a good number of people.

  • ESPN writer: J.J. Hickson could evolve with Suns

    There’s never been a question about J.J. Hickson’s remarkable talent and athleticism. Still, the 23-year-old power forward has struggled to find his footing in the NBA, frustrating teams with his lack of basketball knowledge and execution of the fundamentals. Hickson, who was bought out by the Sacramento Kings Monday after averaging a mere 4.7 points […]
  • Suns will have ample cap space this summer

    The Suns will have every opportunity to add a big time player or two this summer.

  • Suns making up for lack of talent with heart

    The Suns would have been better off tanking the season. The 2012 draft set to be one of the more loaded classes in recent history. The Thunder are leading the West, and they are showing no signs of falling apart. And, should a team miraculously get past the Durantula, chances are the Bulls or Heat […]
  • Steve Nash: ‘We’re in a desperate position’

    In the past four weeks the Phoenix Suns have won almost as many games as they did in the season’s first nine weeks.

Of the names tossed around for who would be sent to Phoenix for the All-Star was second-year pro J.J. Hickson, a power forward who had shown some ability in limited action. While a […]
  • Suns coach Alvin Gentry explains the team’s success

    Only the NBA-leading Chicago Bulls have played better since the All-Star break. “We’re playing as good as we’ve played all season,” said Grant Hill. “It seems like we’re all clicking on all cylinders right now,” added Jared Dudley. The reason for the Suns recent success? It’s quite simple, really. “Coaching,” Alvin Gentry deadpanned Sunday after […]
  • Did Jared Dudley dunk for the 3rd time this year?

    The Suns win their season-high fourth straight game, putting them over .500 for the first time all season but the talk in the locker-room after the game was what happened—or perhaps what didn’t happen, at the 8:54 mark of the first quarter. The official stat sheet says: Dudley 1′ FB Dunk (Nash) So, Dudley—who predicted […]
  • Redd’s outburst help Suns to 4th straight win

    Scoring 25 points in an NBA game is a big deal for some. It’s not for Michael Redd. The veteran sharpshooter has topped that mark 190 times in his NBA career. He’s averaged over 25 points per game for two full NBA seasons. But Redd did something Sunday night that even he hasn’t done before: […]
  • Morris twins finally meet in NBA

    On the night their alma mater advanced to the Sweet 16, twin brothers Markieff and Marcus Morris played in the same professional game for the first time in their careers They never matched-up against one another, though Markieff did set a screen on Marcus, which freed Michael Redd for a 16-foot jumper mid-way through the […]

  • Eddie Johnson: Time for Frye to take lead

    The likelihood of a playoff run for the Phoenix Suns is still unpredictable. They have a tough road ahead facing the Clippers Thursday, the Pistons on Friday and the Heat on next Tuesday, which all are in the top four of their conference. But they still have 24 games left in the regular season, and […]
  • With Morris, Suns balancing development with playoff push

    The Phoenix Suns selected Kansas forward Markieff Morris with the 13th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, and at the time it was thought he was a decent-but-not-great prospect. However, with the way the rookie started the season — providing good scoring and rebounding punch off the bench while showing a surprisingly good three-point shot, […]
  • Babby proud of lack of ‘circus’ surrounding Steve Nash

    By the time this season is done with, Steve Nash will have played the last eight years of his career with the Phoenix Suns. A great player and ambassador for each one of those eight years, the Suns have had no interest in trading the veteran, even with his contract set to expire this summer. […]
  • No Nash deal: Suns expect a quiet trade deadline

    The NBA’s trade deadline is Thursday at 12:00 p.m. Arizona time, and while the Phoenix Suns have been the subject of rumors for the last couple of months, chances are they won’t be making a move.

  • Alvin Gentry: ‘We didn’t get it done’
