From the opening tip it was clear the Suns were going to be a step behind.
The ball whipped around the perimeter quickly and always seemed to find Ryan Anderson open beyond the arc. When it got inside, Marcin Gortat, left on an island against Howard as he often was in practice when he was with the Magic, was defenseless against the Dwight Howard brute force.
Orlando was playing around with Phoenix for most of the game, so much so that the team pretty much took the fourth quarter off. At least offensively.

I don’t know what kind of steroids he started taking about 6 years...

MIAMI - When LeBron James was growing up and Grant Hill played at Duke, James wasn't a fan.
"No one liked Duke," James said.
But after Hill entered the NBA in 1994 and joined the Detroit Pistons, it became much cooler in his Akron, Ohio, neighborhood to dig him. And James went all out.
"I had his shoes when I was younger...
