Clipper ElimiNation

How sweet it is to win back-to-back Game 7's against a team from Los Angeles.

I found that caption with the image above on the Suns website. Interestingly, that picture is from earlier in the game when the Suns got hit with a VERY bad call - Cassell ran over Bell, yet they called the foul on us. He was, understandably, upset and arguing the call - and Tim Thomas came in to calm him down. Guess their caption is more upbeat ;-) (Found it with the correct info, and here is a shot of Bell after Cassell knocked him to the ground)

The gang was definitely firing on all burners, despite the fact that the Clippers played a great game and Elton Brand was once again scoring pretty much at will (61%).

The stats were:

Field Goals
Clippers 52.6%
Suns 60.0%

Three Pointers
Clippers .0% (OK, that is really bad)
Suns 55.6%

Free Throws
Clippers 96.2% (25/26)
Suns 84.2% (16/19)

Round 3 here we come!

UPDATE: Doesn't it look like Maggette is attempting a trip here?

BTW: I also was glad to see the Dallas Mavericks advance, despite the fact that I dislike them (or their owner anyway) a great deal. I just dislike the Spurs (mostly Ginobli and Parker) even more.

I'm not a basketball fan but how 'bout those Suns?
