Phoenix Suns Make it 2 in a Row

Nobody expected this to happen for the Spurs after giving the 2nd seeded Dallas Mavericks a hard time, the 3rd-seeded Phoenix Suns has one thing in mind beating the San Antonio Spurs 3 games in a row. Trailing for 72-71 going to the fourth quarter, the Suns were convince to use a great run in the fourth quarter with unexpected hero Goran Dragic scoring 23 of his 26 point second half explosion in the 4th quarter. He was phenomenal by scoring more than half of his team's 39 points in the 4th, leading the Suns just a one step forward to the Western conference finals, 110-96 over the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix looks like giving this game to the Spurs trailing by as much as 18 points. But they clawed their way to cut the deficit little by little. Steve Nash could have played more than 38-minutes with this one that could possbibly make him slower with his back problems. Enters Goran Dragic into the game in the latter part of the 3rd quarter and starting the 4th quarter with Nash n the bench. He was then impressive, hitting shots after shots in the 4th, thus, extending Nash take the bench for a needed rest. He scored 23 points in a quarter that Charles Barkley once achieved against the Spurs. Manu Ginobili leads the Spurs with 27 points but is not enough to overcome Dragic's heroics.
