Phoenix Suns v San Antonio Spurs Live
Even though barely anyone thought Amar'e Stoudemire and company could make any significant progress in this year's NBA campaign, the Suns did not only finish the regular season third in the Western Conference, but were also able to overcome Brandon Roy and the Portland Trail Blazers in the first playoff round. Thus, the Phoenix Suns will face Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs in game three of the Western Conference Semifinals at AT&T Center on Saturday at 1:30 a.m. GMT.
In contrast, most experts around the league expected the Spurs to compete for a championship in 2009-10, yet the franchise from Southern Texas finished just seventh in the West after a mediocre regular season. Nonetheless, San Antonio was able to overcome their in-state rivals in the Conference Quarterfinals as the team around Tony Parker was able to defeat the Dallas Mavericks after six games in a highly contested series. So far, combo guard Manu Ginobili has put the team on his shoulders, averaging 20.1 points, 5.0 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 2.6 steals per contest.
The Suns on the other hand used their home-court advantage to get past Portland in the first round, although it should be mentioned that the Blazers had to play without starting center Greg Oden and franchise centerpiece Brandon Roy. Either way, fans can expected an entertaining ball game when the high-scoring Suns will try to break down the Spurs' defensive fortress on Saturday night. Especially the point guard match-up between All-Star guards Steve Nash and Tony Parker will be a key factor to success for either team.
