Default Playoffs: (2) Suns vs. (3) Spurs

And round 1 goes to the Spurs:

Nash sustained quite a nasty gash on his nose after his collision with Tony Parker......

But not nearly as disgusting as the beatdown Nash experienced from Tony Parker in the game.

Nash had just as good of a game as Parker, if not better. 31 and 32 points respectively, each with 8 assists....but Nash turned the ball over 3 times to Parkers 6 and Nash had 3 rebounds to Parkers 1.

He probably would have had even better numbers had he played down the stretch

Pistons/Spurs, here we go...

Stupid comment by Mike D'Antoni saying his team is more invididually talented, but the Spurs are better collectively. That's his job to make his players play better as a team...

I never said Steve Nash had a poor outing in game one, but isn't an MVP in the postseason expected to produce MVP-like numbers while limiting the production of the opposing player? Like Shawn Marion managed to do last night against Tony Parker?

Coming into last night's game, Parker was averaging 29 points per game this season against Phoenix, which is nine points above his season average. In every game this season against the Suns that Parker has managed to score over 20 points per game in, San Antonio has won. When Parker is held to his average or lower (like last night), the Spurs have lost.

I don't necessarily agree with that comment that "an MVP in the postseason expected to produce MVP-like numbers while limiting the production of the opposing player"

Nash has been the MVP for his offensive contributions and getting his team to play better...distributing the ball and increasing tempo. He's never been known as a defensive point gaurd. Every team seems to have higher than average stats vs Phoenix because they shoot the ball so early in the shot clock and thus give the opposition more posessions...not to mention the fact that they don't put as much emphasis on defense.

What are your thoughts on Amare Stoudemire's comments about the Spurs dirty play? Having had the benefit of watching in slow motion, Bowen's kick of Amare's heels in game two, I have to agree with him, especially when I saw Bowen kick Nash in the head while stepping over him. I'm also sick of Tim Duncan and his constant whining!

If officiating can range from a flawless 0 (2002 World Cup Final) to downright corrupt 10 (basketball finals at the 1972 Summer Olympics), I think game 3 a was 6 or 7.

Phoenix could very well have won that game if not the refs were more competent.

I've been a defender of Bowen for awhile but his latest antics, which include kicking Amare (CLEARLY intentionally) and kneeing Nashin the groin (incidental)... I mean, the circumstantial evidence has acculumated over the years for the "dirty player" label to be justified.

It's more than an isolated incident. Numerous star players have made the same accusations and I think there is some truth to it. I don't like the Spurs one bit. There is video evidence, something should be done, especially since the league came down so hard on Kobe.

As for this series, I think it will go six or seven easily. I'm pulling for the Suns!

The league is taking a look at Bowen's knee to Nash's groin from game 3. It'll be interesting to see if 1) the league imposes a fine/suspension on Bruce and 2) how Bowen's defense will be affected for the rest of the series now that he knows Stern and Co. are keeping a close tab.

Horry is definitely gone for game 5. I expect Amare and Boris to sit too, since they broke a dumbass rule.

By the letter of the law, then yes, both Amare and Boris should be out for Wednesdays game, but it would be a harsh call on either imo. Sure, if Amare had got involved in the pushing and shoving then he deserves it, but he never got involved from what I saw. This is the NBA's fault for not stamping down on the earlier issues in the series.
