Playoff Musings: Suns v. Lakers
Remember this guy? Yep, it's Jalen Rose. It's kind of hard to find an action shot of him on the internet in a Suns uniform because he never plays. Well, tonight he played a lot, because the Suns absolutely destroyed the Lakers 126-98. This game was over before halftime. Even better for the Suns, Steve Nash only played 24 minutes. They need him to be fresh for the next round. Meanwhile, Leandro Barbosa is proving that even though he won 6th man of the year, he could be starting for 75% of the teams in the league. He was 11-18 from the floor for 26 pts. Kobe Bryant tweaked his ankle tonight, but it doesn't really matter whether he can play again or not. This isn't like last year's matchup. The Lakers have no chance in this series.
