Default WC PLAYOFFS; ROUND 2: (3) PHOENIX SUNS defeat the (7) SA SPURS 4-0

STARTERS:

PHX

Steve Nash
Jason Richardson
Grant Hill
Amare Stoudemire
Jarron Collins

SAS

George Hill
Manu Ginobili
Richard Jefferson
Tim Duncan
Antonio McDyess

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

PHX

Goran Dragic
Leandro Barbosa
Jared Dudley
Channing Frye


SAS

Tony Parker
Dajuan Blair


Key Matchups:

I really think this series comes down to 2 things:

1. How the Suns defend Tim Duncan. They cant get away with doubling him like they did LaMarcus because the Spurs are too smart, have too many playmakers/shooters out there. So it comes down to them mixing up their defence and praying to the basketball Gods to cure Robin Lopez.

2. The bench. PHX has a better chance vs the Spurs this year than any(besides the year where the Suns got BSd by Stu Jackson) because of their depth and because they actually have 4 capable scorers off the bench. The Spurs are gonna have to figure out a combination that works for when the Suns bench comes into the game.


PREDICTION:

SAS in 6. The Suns are going to be playing Amare/Frye most of the game and that doesnt bode well for them vs Duncan and the penetrating guards. Unless they get Lopez back I cant see them winning this.

And I accidentally put PHX as the 2 seed in my title, please change.

Timmay is going to abuse Jaron Collins and Amare. Wait Jaron Collins? Are you kidding me? lol. Do I have to go back to 2003 to show the footage of Timmy putting up 21 points, 20 rebounds, 10 assists, and 8 blocks on the Nets who started Collins at Center during the NBA finals....

Heart wants Phoenix to go through ... mind says San Antonio in 6.

If I have to watch games on my phone in between calls, I will ... going to try not to miss much of this series.

Go Phoenix!

I heard somewhere that Robin Lopez will be back for this series so while that doesn't solve the Tim Duncan problem it's definitely the best option Phoenix will have.

I see Tim Duncan playing tired and showing his age against the Suns. You could tell he was running out of gas at the end of the Dallas series and that was a PHYSICAL series. Over a span of two series I don't think he can maintain a high level of play.

Suns in 6.

This.

I think that this may be the year when the Suns exercise the demons..... Grant Hill is going to have to play some tough D again (likely on Manu this time) and the Suns will have to make sure that George Hill doesn't continue to play hot. If Lopez can play, that's a big boost too.

About 99 percent of the time in previous years PHX lost this exact game. JRich changing history for 1 game at least.
