Is the Pacific race over?

Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry delivered what sure sounded like a concession speech after the Suns lost to the Lakers, 108-88, on Sunday. “I don’t think our top priority is beating them right now,” he said. “Our emphasis is not on how the heck we’re going to beat the Lakers. There’s Denver, Houston, New Orleans, Utah — a lot of other teams that we’ve got to try to beat before we think about the Lakers.” The Lakers also hammered Phoenix by 19 on Nov. 12.

    No way is the west won yet! Our Lakers still have to take care of the ball better and pass the ball more to get good shots. Also the defense is okay ,but its going to need to be tougher these days. At times, the defense isnt even there. Take care of each other on and off the court too! Its a long season!We want to win back to back championships in LA!!! Keep the Faith Guys !!!
