Amare Stoudemire scored 26 points and Steve Nash had 18 points and 10 assists before sitting out the fourth quarter while the Phoenix reserves completed a 123-101 rout of the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night that gave the Suns home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Suns made 14 of 24 three-pointers, 11 of 17 in the first three quarters. The Suns can finish no worse than No. 4 in the West and would be No. 3 if they win at Utah on Wednesday. Denver, which finished its regular season, would get the No. 4 spot and a first-round home-court edge if Phoenix beats the Jazz.

I find it discouraging that Phoenix's biggest claim to fame may be a culture that honors the ability of urban runaways to settle into the life of shallow, disconnected couch potatoes--safely isolated behind walled homes in walled communities ("How Phoenix Got So Hot," by Louis Sahagan, Dec. 24). Even more discouraging is that these people want to make sure that only white potatoes can participate in this new version of the American Dream. No wonder they chose not to venture into the hot desert sun; their half-baked existence might be usefully stimulated by some additional cooking.
