Nash Goes Off for 30, and the Suns Open a Grueling Road Trip with a Win over the Heat
One of the big questions about the Phoenix Suns heading into this season was: Did 35-year-old Steve Nash have enough left in the tank to carry the Suns like the Nash of old? On Tuesday night, the former league MVP certainly had plenty in the tank as he sparked a crazy second-half rally in the Suns' 104-96 win over the Miami Heat in Miami.
Just one week into the season, the Suns are one of three remaining unbeaten teams in the NBA. (The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets are the other two.) In the third quarter, Nash scored 17 of his 30 points, setting the tone for a dominant second half in which the Suns outscored the Heat 60-44.
