Have you heard about the 'Free Steve Nash movement' that's taking shape in the USA? The idea was hatched by an NBA analyst who would like to see the two-time MVP traded from his struggling Phoenix Suns to a championship contending team.
Phoenix Suns' Marcin Gortat (4) puts up a shot against Milwaukee Bucks' Drew Gooden (0) during the first half of an NBA basketball game on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012, in Milwaukee.
The plan is starting to get a cult like following as Twitter and Facebook accounts have been opened in an effort to see the NBA assists leader shipped out of the desert.
And Nash who turned 38 on Tuesday, would lead the Suns against Milwaukee. Phoenix got off to a quick start with a seven point lead in the first. Ersan Ilyasova cuts that with a buzzer beating three. That cuts the margin to 4.
Phoenix pulled away in the second quarter. Nash set up Marcin Gortat for a 3-point play, the Suns up by 15. Milwaukee rallied back deep in the third. Beno Udrih stole the ball before cutting to the rack for a layup, the Bucks within 10.
The hosts would make it a one-point game with Mike Dunleavy hitting the triple, three of his 17 on the night. And Brandon Jennings would give Milwaukee the lead, knocking down the triple, pushing the Bucks 3 points ahead.
However Nash got the Suns back on track as his three puts Phoenix up by two - 18 points, 11 dimes for the birthday boy.
Drew Gooden scores a driving layup to tie it. With the game tied at 105 late, Nash would slice through for a routine layup, to hand Phoenix the victory as they beat the Bucks 107-105.
