Fourth Quarter Update

Bruce Bowen is a ridiculously smart basketball player. It's possible most NBA players are this smart and it's only obvious to me because his skills are so limited, and that's a floor game I understand implicitly.

But BB just knows his shit. When the Suns set up a play that results in a shot that's a little too wild, he's there for the weakside rebound. When his man strays far from the ball, Bruce gives him a little cushion and eyes the lane. When Tim Duncan is struggling at the line in the fourth, Bruce Waves off a lesser player and feeds Duncan in the post, setting up more trips to the line.

The Suns may get one. It sort of seems like their night. But up 6 with 5 to play is a dangerous place to be on the road.
