Fouling jumper shooters is good for business
posted: Tuesday, March 18, 2008 at 8:03 PM

Barbosa hits nothing but net on the three after clanking his first few long-range attempts. Suns 35, Blazers 16.

Outlaw tries to counter with a baseline three of his own, but it's off. Channing Frye out-hustles two Suns for the rebound, goes back up with it and draws the foul on Brian Skinner. Channing makes both. Sergio and James Jones both check in.

Grant Hill with the three, count it. On the other end, Jarrett Jack takes it at Hill and gets a trip to the line for his trouble. Makes the first, misses the second.

Giricek misses a running jumper, which you would expect from a guy who's more of a spot-up shooter. Channing Frye makes him pay with a long two. Channing's looking good so far tonight.

Brian Skinner clanks a shot from inside the key, and James Jones gets the rebound with 3 seconds left in the quarter. James sizes up the halfcourt shot, and as he's taking it, Giricek commits a less-than-heady foul while JHoops is in the act of shooting with 0.03 seconds on the clock. That's three free throws. All are good.

Time runs out in the quarter with the score Suns 28, Blazers 27. Nice way to end the quarter for the Red and Black.
