"Its only a game," said my 12 year old daughter, Holly, as my wife, Claudia, my son, Ryan, and I were cheering loudly for the Phoenix Suns as we huddled around our televsion last night. Just a game, but it was a great game!
The Phoenix Suns pulled out an improbable victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, forcing a game 7 in the first round NBA playoff series. The Suns were without their best perimeter defender, Raja Bell, and Kobe Bryant scored a career playoff best 50 points. But MVP Steve Nash scored 32 points and had 13 rebounds, Tim Thomas made a three-point shot to tie the game at the end of regulation and Shawn Marion and Boris Diaw each scored six points in overtime to seal the victory. How sweet it is!
We'll be cheering loudly for the Suns again Saturday evening!
