Phoenix Suns Rebound with Overtime Win Against New Jersey Nets
Steve Nash: Scored 10 points in overtime to save his Suns.
The Phoenix Suns have let a lot of games slip away from them recently, but they refused to let that happen in Wednesday night's home 118-109 win over the New Jersey Nets. Sure, it took an extra five minutes to nail this one down -- only the Suns' second win in their past six games -- but, hey, a win is a win. And any victory feels good after Tuesday night's debacle in Denver, where the Suns were pummeled 132-98 by the Nuggets.
Of course, it's tough to get too excited about a win against one of the NBA's worst teams. The Nets are now 10-28, making them better than only the Cleveland Cavaliers, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Sacramento Kings. And with the win, the Suns still have a pretty bad themselves. At 16-21, they would be three games out of a playoff spot.
