But Phoenix wasn't entirely disappointed. Earlier this season, O'Neal, nursing a bad hip, had been of no help to struggling Miami. But the curative powers of the desert Southwest are amazing indeed (being with a contender helps, too). Shaq played 29 minutes, scored 15 points, grabbed nine rebounds and blocked a couple shots. He shot well from the field and lousy from the line. In brief, he looked like Shaq and, assuming his soon-to-be 36-year-old body holds up, he should help the Suns the way they planned when they sent Shawn Marion to the Heat to get the big guy.
