Few teams were as appreciative of the All-Star break as the old head ballers known as the Phoenix Suns. They picked up an expected victory against the terrible Wizards on Monday but lost a heart-breaker to Golden State just two nights later. The loss to the Warriors came down to Golden State's Monta Ellis hitting a game-winning fadeaway jumper with one second remaining but the game was really lost in the first quarter. The Suns' lackluster start resulted in them facing a 22-39 deficit heading into the second quarter. They came back but didn't have enough to keep up with the Golden State young'ns. We'll see whether a full week off with rejuvenate these old men out West.—Ralph Warner
