PHOENIX -- Suns center Marcin Gortat called Friday's first quarter "probably the worst in my basketball career" and none of his Phoenix teammates were helping much. Two hours later, he was celebrating one of his most memorable NBA wins. Less than two minutes into the second quarter, the Suns were down 26 points and the young Cleveland Cavaliers were transforming turnovers into a layup-and-slam-dunk drill and dominating in all phases of the game. But suddenly the Suns began to defend, score and chip away at the huge deficit, only to be forced to re-rally in the final minutes for a wild 107-105 win to cap the biggest comeback win at home in franchise history. Two nights after setting a Suns record with six 3-pointers in a win at Charlotte, Shannon Brown had 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and Gortat added five points and three blocks as Phoenix fashioned the third-biggest comeback win in the 45-year history of the Suns, capped only by a 29-point rally at ...

The score was 42-16, early second quarter. At that moment, I very well may have been the cockiest Cavaliers fan on the planet. Anderson Varejao was going to the All-Star game, I tweeted. Cleveland was obviously far superior to all things Phoenix, Arizona. The only thing the Suns had going for themselves was how they scripted that reversible logo at half-court. I was looking around...
Clearly, the folks who come up with the in-arena video entertainment for NBA games are some creative folks.Recently, the Phoenix Suns decided to have some of their players do a parody of Flo Rida's hit song, "Whistle".Clearly, Marcin Gortat steals the show....
PHOENIX (AP) -- Shannon Brown scored 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and helped key a late 14-4 run as the Phoenix Suns rallied from a 26-point deficit to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-105 Friday night.
