Teams: Phoenix Suns vs. New Jersey Nets
Result: 161-157, Suns
MVPs: Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Shawn Marion
A head-to-head battle between Jason Kidd and Steve Nash is expected to deliver fireworks, and in 2006, the two lived up to the billing. With Kidd dropping a triple-double, and Nash putting up 42 points with 13 assists, New Jersey and the Suns went off. Going into two overtime periods, the game included an absolutely wild fourth quarter that saw 17 lead changes and eight different ties. However, in the end, the Suns would come out victorious, as Nash dropped nine in the second OT period to will his team to the win.
