Stevenash_300 The Phoenix Suns lost the first two Western Conference finals playoff games to the Lakers in Los Angeles.

The Suns allowed an average of 126 points in those games.

They are in an 0-2 hole with Game 3 on Sunday night at US Airways Center.

The Suns have had three days off to prepare for the Lakers and to get their minds straight for the task ahead.

"We feel good," Suns guard Steve Nash said after practice Saturday. "We didn't feel so good coming home from L.A. But we've had a day or so to get our energy back. We feel positive and optimistic and we're just excited that we have the opportunity to play better to try and get a win."
