Diaw already fouled out and Nash, Marion, Thomas all have 5 fouls apiece. Not sure how they survived that 2nd OT.

Najera is having another great game.

Not watching but following it via courtside live. What are the Suns' record in games decided by OT?

Earl Boykins has 31 points??? Is our old friend Nash not doing a good job on defense again?

Ha..you beat me too it. I've been waiting for an hour for this game to end so I can go to bed!

Nice steal by Eddie at the end of the second OT there.

He's also having trouble hanging on to the ball with 7 TO's, but he's had some really clutch shots.

CBS sportsline is very confusing..they show Nash with 6 Fouls and Diaw with 5.

I'm switching to yahoo.

This is the second time the Suns have had a triple OT this year. They lost to the Knicks in that one.

Does PHX only have 7 guys available to play?

I smell a quadruple OT.

Eddie's making some big plays down the stretch!!!!!!!!

Guess who just fouled out!

A quick scan at the official site looks like the Suns are 1-2 in overtimes.

Nash just fouled out so this will be interesting.

I think they have 8 players available but they just signed that guy yesterday or today.

Goodness... The Suns need to pull something out of their butts to win this one if it goes to 4OT.

I think the Nuggets can close this out in 3OT. Just get a freaking stop...

14 seconds on the clock. Denver ball. Game tied.

oh wait..yahoo doesn't agree with that...dammit!

what's happening? I'm behind haha

okay yahoo changed the score..but only shows 12.5 seconds left.

and there's Melo with his 41st and 42nd point...

Five seconds left.

Booyah 'Melo!

Goodness. Melo with a clutch shot.

I'm surprised either team ran the clock down more.

Who's gonna take the last shot for the Suns?

Damn...I wanted PHX to lose, but I was also getting excited about 4OT....must've been a fun game to watch.

Eddie House to the rescue... NOT! Game over and Nuggets win by 2 in 3OT.

Insane.

Did they get a shot off?

mary

According to yahoo House missed a 3 pointer and Marion missed the follow up tip in.

Ouch.

House came of of a Thomas pick and shot an off balance 3 with Melo and Najara in his face.

The shot came up short Marion was under the basket to guide it in...unfortunately the shot was under the rim so he hit the bottom of the rim.

On another note, Carmello Anthony is damn good. I say this because there was a lot of Carmelo backlash last year, some of it deserved, some not.

The book on him by many here was that he was just another Glen Robinson. Now that he's in shape he's proving to be a much more explosive scorer than Robinson ever was.

I was looking at the roster and the Suns should have had 10 players available. Not saying they would have made a difference but where was Jim Jackson and Pat Burke? The last guy is Josh Davis but he was just signed so I'm not surprised he didn't play at all.

Count me among the guys who lost over an hour sleep watching this over Yahoo Gamechannel.

Incredible Game!!

PHX is a tough team this year. They're gelling very fast, what with all the changes. Diaw and Bell are great acquisitions!

I still can't believe ATL gave up Diaw and two 1st round picks to sign Joe Johnson to that ridiculous contract.

from Elias:

• Phoenix lost in triple overtime at Denver on Tuesday night after losing in triple OT to the Knicks on Jan. 2. Only two other NBA teams in the last 50 years played two games with at least three overtimes in the same season: the 1997-98 Suns and the 1958-59 Cincinnati Royals.

What a game to watch live. Suns certainly put on a show, even if I wanted them to lose. badly.

Oh yea, Carmello finished the game with cotton stuffed in one of his nostrils to stop a nose bleed.

Eddy energy kneed him in the head a couple of plays before the end

Meh. Give me a good ol' 83-79 game with about 38% shooting a side.

What was the final score anyway?

139 to 137
