Phoenix isn't a shoe-in but I know that if Nash played the way he did last night (triple-double), there is no doubt that they can win a championship.
He isn't going to have a night like that all the time though. So that is why other people need to step up. For example, in last nights game, Jim
Jacksopn stepped up as the point-guard while Nash was on the bench and then they went on a 7-0 surge. If they can get that out of their bench then
they will be set.
But Dallas has a good bench also in one person, Jerry Stackhouse. This guy is on fire during the playoffs. And with Dirk not playing well and getting
hurt (hit in the eye), it is going to be hard for Dallas to get through unless someone else steps up.
San Antonio has a great shot because they have a triple threat (Ginobili, Parker, Duncan). But they also have a good team. Don't count these guys
Seattle is a great team also but I don't believe they will make it. With Rashard Lewis not playing, these guys need more production from the bench.
And you can't see that. At least the duo of Allen and Daniels is working!
