Suns Saved By The Bell, Defeat Nets 104-103 In Overtime Battle

This game had all the makings of a Phoenix Suns meltdown. The bench played well, and then the starting lineup came in to salt it all away in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, rather than sealing the deal, the starting lineup nearly let the Nets win.

Overtime was looking pretty rough as well, with the Suns down 103-101 with less than ten seconds to go. Channing Frye was the hero once again, nailing a clutch three pointer with six seconds left to take a 104-103 lead.

Kris Humphries nearly stole the win away from the Suns with tip-in at the buzzer, but the referees ruled that the ball was still on the tips of his fingers when the red light went off.

Seriously, this was the closest overtime ending I’ve seen in a long time, and the Suns are playing some really intense basketball right now.

If you aren’t watching the Suns play basketball these days, you’re really missing out. This team is really coming together, and Aaron Brooks played well off the bench in relief of Steve Nash.

With the win, Phoenix moves to 31-27 and gets all the more closer to the playoffs. They are half a game behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the 8th seed in the Western Conference.

The next game for the Suns will be on Wednesday evening when they take on the Boston Celtics. The game will be broadcast once again on My45, so don’t miss out on the possible fireworks between Frye and Kevin Garnett.
