Three overtime periods!? Games like these prove why some athletes need to keep their asses on college, its a MAN’S game. With stat lines like these: Kobe Bryant – 42 points, 9 rebounds and 9-for-11 from the free throw line in 48 minutes. Steve Nash – 19 points, 20 assists while playing 49 minutes. Mind you, these guys are well into their 30s. Originally, I had the first meeting between the Knicks & Celtics where Amar’e Stoudemire’s game winning three-pointer didn’t count. That was some of the best basketball I’ve seen in a LONG time. Alas, there’s tonight’s game where I thought Los Lakers would run all over Los Suns, but I was very wrong. As of now, the Suns are on the outside looking in from a playoff perspective, with games like this they’ll be right back in the hunt. RESPECT to both teams.
