I'm on vacation  in California, and I'm wondering if I should go to the Suns laker game rocking a Nash jersey and give
Staples Center a bit of Laker fans own medicine.  You know, yell obnoxious shit that shows I know jack about the game of basketball while simultaneously talking like I'm an expert, backing my reasoning with asinine rationale like 'haters gonna hate'....or are there any cool sports bars I should check out instead.

Looking for advice from LA BSotS'rs and the cool SSR Peeps I've come to know.

Poll
Should I enter enemy territory and act like a colossal penis (stole this phrase from Kieth) or does any one want to grab a beer and watch the game with 2NASHTY

Marcin Gortat Wants To Star In A Porn With Jennifer Aniston (I think)

The Basketball Jones talked to NBA players about what a movies of their life would look like.

The video includes input from Jared Dudley, Channing Frye and Marcin Gortat who says he wants his romantic interest to be Jennifer Aniston and his name to be "Polish Machine" -- and yes, he's OK with the porn implications.


Nursing a three-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, I wondered how long Alvin Gentry would wait to re-insert Steve Nash into a game his team couldn’t lose as it clings to playoff hopes...

Taking care of business.  The Phoenix Suns (35-33) did what they were supposed to do this afternoon in L.A., they beat the Clippers (27-44) and now look forward to a showdown with L.A. Lakers on Tuesday.  We are now 2 games behind Memphis for the final 8th seed in the West.

This season the Suns hadn't fared particularly well in their mid-day games going only 2-2 in those situations before today.  But today the Suns played hard physical basketball for a full 48 minutes and coupled the effort with smart defense and efficient offense. 

Steve Nash finished with 23 points, 13 assists and 7 rebounds (3 shy of his 4th career triple-double) while the combination of Channing Frye and Hakim Warrick defensively held Rookie of the Year shoe-in Blake Griffin to 17 points on 6-18 shooting and only 2 rebounds and 3 assists.  That's no feat to roll your eyes at - just yesterday Griffin posted 30 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists whereas today he was constantly frustrated and ultimately fouled out halfway through the 4th quarter on a controversial charge call as he viciously dunked over Marcin Gortat.

A few more Sunday tidbits after the jump.

If you were like me and worried about Steve Nash's health coming into this game then we couldn't be more encouraged with the effort, mobility and pep that Steve had in his step today.  He looked healthy and was filling the stat scoring as well as dishing and grabbing rebounds.   If this Suns team is going to make the playoffs, that destiny hinges on Steve's health and the most encouraging stat that I noticed in that regards is how many 3pt shots he hit.  In both today's game and Friday's win v. the Warriors - He made 3 (3-4 on Friday, 3-3 today), something he hadn't done since February 15.   That my friends is a good sign.  Steve might be back.  Stay tuned.

The next major factor of this Suns victory was the bench.  In the absence of Aaron Brooks due to his league issued suspension, Zabian Dowdell, Warrick, Dudley and Gortat came up big as they scored 51 points and played with major defensive intensity when they were in the game forcing turnovers and difficult shots from the Clippers.

This was a good win all around - now let's look ahead to Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers who will be without Bynum missing two games for a Flagrant 2 foul he committed against Minnesota's Michael Beasley yesterday.

P.S. - I just wanted to throw this out there because normally I'm an avid Vince Carter hater - He played pretty well today, he had a little elevation on his jump-shot and had some big assists and rebounds.  I like what he did today. The end.

Let us and the whole cyber-world know what you thought of today's game below in the comment section. 

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday amigos!
