Interestingly enough, the Suns are winning with defense.
Jeff Hornacek and his staff might continue to sweat over dolling out minutes and finding offensive cohesion with four capable guards. In the meantime, he can thank Golden State for gifting his Suns 30 points off 27 turnovers in a 107-95 Phoenix win Sunday. Often times those points came from unforced, dead ball miscues, but Hornacek’s […]

Jeff Hornacek hasn’t added anything new to the Phoenix Suns’ offense, per se. There are always new wrinkles to discuss, but the improved that showed — granted against a very bad Lakers defense — in a 20-point win on opening night came because of familiarity. The ball is out of bounds and getting up the court […]

Recap: The +Phoenix Suns  beat up on a poor +Los Angeles Lakers  defense to overcome +Kobe Bryant's 31 points.
PHOENIX — It was understandable why the Lakers started their second game of the year looking defeated. Twenty-four hours hadn’t passed since Los Angeles saw forward Julius Randle‘s season end because of a broken leg, and coach Byron Scott spent the majority of his pregame meeting with the media talking about losing his rookie and the […]

PHOENIX — Whether one change meant the difference is hard to say. If the Phoenix Suns suddenly found their magic potion to success in a 116-99 win over the Indiana Pacers is difficult to determine. Scoring 38 fastbreak points said it was all going well, but maybe it’s nothing more than an anamoly. Yet, coach Jeff […]

Arizona fans anticipated ASU students would be running guard shifts to defend Tempe's 'A' Mountain during rivalry. So they struck three weeks before the Duel in the Desert.

From Phoenix:  More on Marcus Morris' big night in the +Phoenix Suns season opener against the Lakers.
PHOENIX — Before the Phoenix Suns began dismantling the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, their entertainment staff gaffed. Confetti from pregame introductions slowly fell from the U.S. Airways Center rafters, delaying the tip as players swatted at the pieces as they floated through the air. After the 119-99 rout finally ended, coach Jeff Hornacek likewise […]
