Nash hits Money Shot to Take 2-1 Series Lead

Tonight was ugly for the Suns. Shoot less than 40% and shoot 26% from three, score only 94 points, and these things usually add up to a loss. But hey, they gave up 123 in game one and won. Why not win ugly? I sat at the condo and watched the Suns take care of some business tonight and the Matrix look like he took the Red Pill for once.

Nash had an awful night, but when it really counted, hit a fallaway jumper over a defender with 3.6 seconds left as the shot clock expired to take a 3 point lead. The story of the night was on the boards. The Suns led the rebounding battle most of the night and finished the game at -2. Slightly better than game two's -31. Game 5 is on Tuesday in Phoenix and I am hoping that after game four the Suns will be looking to close it out. This is a series the Suns should be trailing 3-0, but found gritty ways to win. The team is small, and that is an understatement, but showing some serious heart.
