With yesterday’s recent thriller, it’s a good time to look back at this team which for some reason, literally seems to end up fighting till the very last second. With 3 triple-overtime games in the last in last few years, and one epic from 20 years ago, they’ve been the most regularly appearing participant in these marathon nail-biters.

Yesterday’s 3-OT loss to the Pelicans where one of the commentators accidentally compared Ryan Anderson to Larry Legend (blasphemy!).

‘The Nate Robinson Game’ from the 2013 Playoffs, where he went into Krypto-Nate mode and carried the team on his tiny 5’7 frame to a shocking comeback and key playoff victory.
plus just the Nate highlights
3. April 30, 2009
The 3-OT game 6 win from the 2009 playoffs from their classic first round series against the Celtics, where they withstood Ray Allen dropping 50 and pulled out the W with Joakim’s coast to coast dunk and Rose’s block on Rondo.
and going waaay back

Jordan dropped 44 but the Suns withstood MJ and managed to stay alive by getting their first win on the road rather than falling behind 3–0.
