The Phoenix Suns played like a Championship-caliber team today - which doesn't necessarily mean they played well. They weren't very good in the first half, but when they needed to, they managed to turn it on and they played good defense in the second half, particularly against Kobe Bryant. This is what championship-caliber teams do. They win even when they aren't at their best and they make defense stops when they need to. Today the Suns did that. Leandro Barbosa - The Brazilian Blur - was outstanding, scoring 26 points.
