Nelson: Suns run the triangle

    The Suns defeated the Warriors last night and I found this quote quite funny for some odd reason:

    AZ Central: Don Nelson claims the Suns run a version of the triangle offense.

    “They run the triangle offense now a little bit,” said Nelson. “They get into it a little bit different than the Lakers do. They get in through the flex cuts but it’s still the triangle. They’re going to O’Neal as a passer. It looked good the last game. I’m sure they’ll do more of it.”

      wow, a team that has diehard bandwagoners, who claim the suns have a better team than the lakers, uses the lakers offense

      I guess they don’t have a choice. They obviously can’t run with Shaq. Or maybe they want to use the offense to piss off Phil Jax? Haha.

      What I don’t understand is when the Suns fastbreak isn’t working and they get into a half court set. They don’t dump the ball to Shaq. Instead, Nash just drives and kicks to other people and let the perimeter guys shoot jumpshots or let Amare bang in for a layup.

      Shaq only gets 3-5 touches per period when they set up their half court offense. That’s why he’s only avg like 9 pts per game.

      Not that I’m complaining, but last nights game against GS on TNT, I was hoping they put Shaq back in the 4th quarter to disrupt the Sun’s offense so they can lose. heh.
