Suns Win Third in Row by Beating New Orleans on Road; Up Next: Denver Nuggets
Amar'e Stoudemire: Slams home another good game.
For now, at least, Amar'e Stoudemire doesn't look like a defensive liability, and the Phoenix Suns played like they give a damn as they endured the second game of a four-game road swing in New Orleans, posting a 109-100 win Monday night.
Sure, the Hornets were without the services of their best player, Chris Paul, but it still can was an important victory for the Suns.
What a difference two good games make. Now, we love the guy again and would hate to see him go. Against the Mavs and Hornets, Stoudemire has shown why he's worthy of starting in the All-Star game on February 13. Now, if only the 6-foot-10 power forward can keep the intensity level up for the season's remaining 31 games. If that happens, we may be willing to take back those one-and-done post-season predictions we were making a couple of weeks ago.
