When Leandro Barbosa is healthy he gives the Suns a whole other element. With him on the bench, the second string has a lot more firepower to work with.
The evil, hated, dirty, flopping, no good, trouble-causing, Empire was back. On this night, though, the dark side fell victim to the light speed attack of the Rebel Alliance.
Suns fans have lots to be thankful for this holiday season, and it’s no wonder why their team currently sits atop the NBA with a 12-3 record.
Five times this year the Suns have won games after overcoming double-digit deficits. Last year, they did this a total of seven times over the 82-game season.
There’s no doubt in my mind that if the Suns continue to play with the effort that they have been, they can take the Lakers.
As a Suns fan, I can’t complain about being 4-1 at this point in the season. There are a lot of positives to look at early in the season.
