Goran Dragic - Amazing come out party for this kid against the Spurs

2nd rounder from Spurs given to Suns ... Spurns the Spurs

Hope to see the Raptors get lucky with late picks some day.

What are your thoughts on this kid.

So this is what happens when a coach leaves the second unit in when they're destroying the other teams first unit.
They win, and win big.

Wonder if we'll ever get that lucky.

He reminds me of Nash a little. He's quick, gets in the lanes and is a good passer. Nash is his idol so it's not all that surprising.

Awesome, just awesome. Suns are definitely the feel-good team of the playoffs right now. Suns vs. Lakers (provided no massive surprises) should be an incredible series. Both teams are clicking right now. If the Suns could somehow win a title, I would be almost as happy as if the Raptors won - Steve Nash deserves a ring so much for everything he has done in being one of the key ambassadors of bringing team-first basketball back.
------

What a difference a couple of years makes. Two years ago, if you asked who had the better career between Nash and Jason Kidd, you'd probably have to pick Kidd for the longevity and fault his teammates for his lack of success. Now, Nash's career is looking more and more like he's not only the better PG, but the debate is almost over. Two MVP's in Phoenix, two 60 win teams, two 54+ win teams, and the worst season record in five years was 46-36 with Nash at the helm.

Nash has gone from "Nowitzki's sidekick" to a force on his own.

When was the last time a team came back from being down 3-0?

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in an NBA playoff series. 7-8 Teams have come back from 3-1, but never 3-0.

If i'm not mistaken, the Nuggets came back from down 3-0 in 94 or 95 to force a game 7, but they lost.

This is the best basketball Phoenix has played all year, easily. J-Rich and Channing Frye have been absolutely lights out and there is some semblance of a defensive culture on this team, it's strange to see.

I've got my money on a sweep and the Suns will give LA a run for their money in the WCF.

they'll have a chance against LA since no one can guard Nash
Bynum will have to be on Amare, foul trouble, and Pau on Frye
Artest on Hill or J Rich

I can see Phoenix pushing LA to the edge, they certainly have a shot at a finals berth with the way they've been playing.

Championship is a little farfetched though. They really don't match up well with the Cavs or the Magic.
