I've been thinking about this comment for awhile and you are correct.

The Suns tease teams and then snatch the win away at the end much like the Spurs of old.
They really do. The Suns would constantly get up 10-15 points on the Spurs and I just NEVER felt comfortable with that lead.

And it doesn't really matter who is playing. Some random dude always steps up even with a star out. I hate the Spurs but I have endless respect for Popovich and how he ran those teams. We have our Pop now and it is the best thing to watch.

I think the Suns just get overconfident at times which leads to letting teams back in. That's dangerous IMO but that's how this team rolls. I am more like Cheese. I don't get excited about leads because I have seen so many teams comeback on the Suns. I am more nervous until the last few minutes of the game where they have been so clutch. Once they take over that part of the game I am more like "we got this".

I've have never thought the Suns were overconfident. Actually I think they take a lunch pail to work and grind on a team for 48 minutes every game. They are relentless. Plus they play each game one at a time.

A lot of times games are close until the end because the opponent gives it everything they have until they finally wear down in the closing minutes. The Suns have found out nothing beats hard work and preparation.

Btw, the Suns hate losing.

Maybe complacent is a better word. The Suns have a habit of not putting teams away until they catchup, tie up the game or just pull ahead. That doesn't say relentless for 48 minutes but I agree they overall are a relentless team. They do let up on the gas from time to time. I have heard Monty over and over in timeouts have to tell the team to keep pressing or say things like "don't let up".
