Phoenix Suns Fall Down At Home - Lose To Portland In Game One

April 19th, 2010 · No Comments

The Phoenix suns stumbled and then fell down as they lost a critical game 1 of the NBA playoffs to the Portland Trailblazers at home in Phoenix, Arizona on Sunday.

With this loss, Phoenix became the only home team to lose the first NBA playoff game this season.

Interestingly, the loss came against a Portland team who had just lost their best player, Brandon Roy, to a season ending injury.  Without Roy, the Trailblazers were expected by some to be a pushover for the powerful suns.

But is was not so as Marcus Camby and Andre Miller were able to shut down Amare Stoudemire and control Steve Nash to put the Suns at a distinct disadvantage for the rest of this series.

If the Suns are to stand any chance of redemption, Amare will need to start playing like he has been late this season and not let them take him out of the game so easily.

The Suns play tomorrow night in game two and I expect they should come out with a little more intensity.
