It's all about 'O'

The Suns lead the league in scoring (109.2 ppg) – big surprise there – so defense is the key tonight, right? To borrow a line from Lee Corso: Not so fast my friend.

“It’s more important for us to be good offensively ourselves,” Jerry Stackhouse said. “They’re a great team that can score the ball. There are going to be a lot more possessions than there are in an average game, so we’ve got to take advantage of those possessions. When teams want to play up-and-down like that, they’re not exerting a lot of emphasis on the defensive end, so we’ve got to take advantage of that.”

Avery Johnson agreed. The Mavs, by the way, are ninth in scoring at 101.8.

“We’re going to have to make sure we play solid offense first so we can have balance going back on defense,” he said.
