The Phoenix Suns' Luis Scola doesn't know how long it will last but he's hoping to stay in the groove. The forward will try to add to his resurgence Friday night while leading the Suns to a fifth consecutive home win in their series with the short-handed Utah Jazz. Scola was averaging 11.7 points - his fewest since his 2007-08 rookie season - through the first 30 games, but he's awakened from that slump in the past week. He is averaging 26.0 points on 57.9 percent shooting over the last three games, and had a team-best 21 when Phoenix (12-21) snapped a six-game skid Wednesday with a 95-89 home win over Philadelphia.

Luis Scola is en fuego, don’t touch him, you may get burned.

Last Friday here’s what I said about Luis Scola in my Add/Drop post: Luis Scola – 81% – Not to be lost in standard leagues but 81% seems a tad bit high so you shallow leaguers with a deep waiver wire pool, take a look-gander there. If you’d like. I don’t know what Luis ate since, or maybe he read my post and got angry, but the next night he went off for 33/10/2 with 2...
