France > Canada. Tony Oui Oui owned the point guard matchup, and the Spurs slowed the Suns down all night long en route to their 92-85 victory. Parker took advantage of Nash's lax defense and the Suns insistence on going (way) under screens for Parker en route to 35 points. Nash settled for 20, and did have 7 assists, but also 6 turnovers. At no point did this game approach the pace at which the Suns would prefer to play ... not even for a stretch. Eighty-five, if you're curious, is the Suns 2nd-lowest point output of the year (they had 83 against Detroit in mid-March). I should also mention that Kurt Thomas did a pretty respectable job against Tim Duncan in the post ... something to keep in mind
And Antoine Walker Shall Lead Them. I think it says that in the Bible, right? No? Oh well. 'Toine pumped in 20 points last night (six of eight from three-point land, not bad for a guy who's shooting a scorching .258 from that distance on the year) to help the Heat beat the Cavs. Something else that helped the Heat beat the Cavs, though, was Lebron James refusing to acknowledge a double-team at the end of regulation, and contorting himself to take a contested, fall-away three instead of finding an open teammate. Then in overtime, he elected to dish the ball off when he was about a foot from the basket and had a seemingly easy finish. I dunno.
