Nash and Amare have been doing just as much postulating as playing in this series, and it isn't clear if they are politicians, actors, or NBA players. This was evident in Game 4, with Tim Duncan in foul trouble from just silly calls, even picking up 2 offensive fouls in a 2 or 3 minute span (he may have never done this his entire career). Kurt "Hack-a-Duncan" Thomas played Duncan the majority of the game, finishing with 2 fouls (one against another player). It seems Amare's complaining paid off at last! While the Suns still may indeed win this series, they have nothing to complain about. They should be going to Phoenix down 3-1. Even though its tied, it's nice to see Nash and Amare's complaining and flopping, what has given them the edge in this series, has turned to cut Phoenix deeply, showing itself to be a double edged sword, just as likely to cut the opposing team as your own.
I agree. I hate to say it but seems like the Suns sparked controversy into this series themselves. I saw the tension from Phoenix in the beginning of Game4 (like Nash's soccer move to trip Bowen). And Amare rushing on the court, maybe he hyped himself up too much before that. Anyway you slice it, a rule is a rule. Considering the 1 games for Amare and DIaw, I'm surprised Horry only got 2 games, didn't he throw an elbow to Raja Bell?
