Suns-Spurs Part II

The worst possible outcome for the NBA: Suns play a gritty, gutty game, but lose when they run out of steam in the last five minutes. Playing essentially six players (Dublin's own Pat Burke played just 3 minutes), it is impossible to argue that Amare Stoudemire (and to a lesser extent, Boris Diaw) would not have made a difference.

All that being said, the Spurs had best win Game Six, and avoid another trip to the Valley of the Sun. The NBA, meanwhile, would probably love to see the Suns somehow win Game Six, and have the series come down to a single game, with both teams at full strength, in Phoenix on Sunday. Wonder who the NBA will task with refereeing on Friday night?
