I haven't seen him do this for a while. This kind of stuff - his timely shot making - is probably one of the biggest reasons he won those MVPs.
I'm not necessarily saying he deserved them (personally I think if there was any year he should've won, it was 06-07). But he won the Suns a handful of games himself just by taking and nailing these kinds of big-moment shots.
Not game-winners, but the kind of shots that put your team up by 4 with less than a minute to go. Or the ones that pull you within 1 point with 30 seconds left.
In your face, pull up 3 pointers within 7 seconds or less. Oh snap!
nash hasnt been clutch the past 2 seasons, nice to see him make some plays with the game on the line, instead of stupid turnovers
Yeah that's how we could tell he was declining. Instead of making these shots, he's had quite a few games where he'd trip or something, lose the ball, fall over, and complain at the ref on the way back.
Hopefully this game starts him up again. We need him to be in this kind of form if we want playoff success.
what about 3-4 years ago against the mavs, one game he drops like 49, another he hits like 4 3's in the final 2 minutes to take the game to ot, then has like another 3 3's and 6 assists + more buckets in the ot to win the game.
