Just twelve short days ago the Phoenix Suns were the 7th seed in the Western Conference and only trailing the 6th seeded Golden State Warriors by one game. Times have changed since then for Phoenix.
The Suns had lost seven of their last 11 games before beating the Toronto Raptors on Sunday 121-113. Phoenix is now on the outside of the playoffs looking to get back in.
Apparently, guard/forward Gerald Green wouldn’t have it any other way. He was recently quoted after the Raptors game as saying he loves the way his team is playing right now.
“We’re just trying to finish this road trip on a great note. We feel like we didn’t play the way we wanted to in Boston [Friday night] but came away with the win. Tonight I just wanted to be aggressive; I’ve felt the last two games I’ve kind of been floating. My teammates have had confidence in me all year so it’s easy to go out there and play when you have a group of guys who believe in you. I love this team and I love the way we’re playing right now.”
Perhaps if the Suns reach the playoffs Green will go from loving his team to being in love with his team.
