For one team though, it's a time of reflection, and to ask what could we have done better? For the Phoenix Suns, the answer could be to not fire your head coach, Alvin Gentry, halfway through the season in the final year of his contract.Oh...

Staggering Suns 'part ways' with coach Gentry

The Phoenix Suns say the team and coach Alvin Gentry have ''mutually agreed to part ways.''

Gentry's Suns will mix up lineups

PHOENIX -- This year's rewritten Phoenix Suns script seems to be offering considerably more than a changing of the point guard. Evidence of the differences is everywhere. There's a new offensive structure (which wasn't working very well), a fresh paint job for the U.S. Airways Center floor and nine players who worked somewhere else last season. One additional -- and...

Suns' solid defense winning games

PHOENIX -- It still seems bizarre each time it's said, but it can't denied: The Phoenix Suns are playing good, solid defense. The defensive revolution -- albeit brief thus far -- continued in Phoenix on Friday night as the Suns (3-4) handed the NBA's third best scoring team just its second loss in a 102-77 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Suns find offense, get much-needed victory

PHOENIX -- Alvin Gentry assumed the responsibility of carrying 1-year-old Matteo into the Phoenix Suns' locker room on Monday afternoon. The Suns' head coach seemed happy to do it. Well, he sort of owed the kid's dad a favor. Matteo's old man is Steve Nash, and the veteran point guard did Gentry a solid by carrying his team down the home stretch of a 102-91 victory...

Suns can't score, Gentry not ready to panick

PHOENIX -- The beauty of this edition of the Phoenix Suns' offense is its capacity to transform almost anyone on the roster into an emergency go-to-guy for one night. But in the eye of even the most optimistic beholder, running sets to create pristine looks for Hakim Warrick and Ronnie Price suggests the potential for cosmic concerns on Planet Orange.
