Arizona Republic "Last season, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek took an assembly of players who were unproven, overlooked and discarded and created a team that was unexpected, overachieving and distinct.

San Antonio Express-News "Summing it up It wasn’t the same shock and awe the Spurs have unleashed in most of their previous home games.

Fox Sports Arizona "With 79 down and four to go, the Suns have been excised from what had become a Keystone-Kops-style race for the eighth playoff seed in the NBA's Western Conference.

CSN Bay Area "The Warriors have owned their home court this season, losing only twice, once to the defending champion Spurs and once to the formidable Bulls. So the Phoenix Suns, losers of four straight, would seem to be the perfect snack before the Warriors take off for a three-game road trip through Texas..." April 03

Arizona Republic "If it's never too late to be who you want to be, the Suns' past two games gave the appearance of a team ready to squeeze all the playoff juice it can out of this season's final 3 1/2weeks. The odds of rising past eighth-place Oklahoma City seem as dire as ever with a 2 1/2-game hole and 11..." March 23
Arizona Republic "To rally their season into a playoff spot, the Suns are going to need something dramatic. Coming to life offensively like Lazarus is a good place to start.
