Hassan Whiteside: Alex Len Mad "Because I Just Kept Dunking On Him"

Who knew the Heat and Suns loathed each other so much? Monday night's game was chippy—Markieff Morris flagrantly fouled former teammate Goran Dragic, and a few minutes later, Hassan Whiteside and Alex Len wrestled on the court.

Isaiah Thomas Stares Down Suns Bench, Says It Was All In Good Fun

The Celtics played in Phoenix tonight, giving Isaiah Thomas an opportunity to go at the team that traded him less than a week ago. He dropped 21 points and seven assists (albeit on 6-16 shooting with five turnovers) on his old teammates, but really took over the game in the final two minutes.

The Phoenix Suns Have Lost An Awful Lot Of Games On Buzzer Beaters

The Phoenix Suns are humming along okay, barely ahead of New Orleans and Oklahoma City for the final playoff spot in the West.

The Suns Are The Fly In The Western Conference's Ointment

The Suns whacked the Wizards, 106-98, last night in Phoenix. The game was never as competitive as the final score makes it look: The Wizards were playing their fourth game in four cities in five nights, and looked like it; the Suns hadn't played since Sunday, and looked like it. The Suns are 27-20 now, nestled into… » 1/29/15 2:05pm 1/29/15 2:05pm

Gerald Green Throws Off-The-Backboard Alley-Oop To Himself, In Traffic

Gerald Green has established himself as the new era's human highlight reel, and tonight against the Magic he performed yet another of his miraculous stunts: an alley-oop, off the glass, to himself in the half-court offense.
