The Los Angeles Lakers held Steve Nash in check for the second straight game, and even a breakout offensive
effort by Grant Hill couldn't save the Phoenix Suns. They lost 124-112 on Wednesday night and trail 2-0 in the
best-of-seven Western Conference finals. It's the first time Phoenix has lost consecutive games since Jan. 25-26. After getting blown out in Game 1, the Suns went to a smaller lineup and brought themselves back in the third quarter, when they tied the game at 90-all. Hill was a major catalyst, hitting 6 of 7 shots from the field
in a vintage performance that recalled his early years in the NBA. He finished with 23 points in his first career appearance in the conference finals.
