One season after leaving the Dallas Mavericks as a free agent, Steve Nash gave his old squad nightmares.
The league MVP lifted Phoenix to a 4-2 series win over Dallas in the 2005 Western Conference Semifinals thanks to an unforgettable six-game performance.
Nash averaged 30.3 points, 12 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game in six games against the Mavericks in May 2005.
In a Game 4 loss in Dallas, Nash would score a career playoff high 48 points on 20-of-28 shooting from the field. Three nights later in a crucial Game 5, Nash recorded the first and only playoff triple-double of his career: 34 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.
In the close-out Game 6 back in Big D, the Suns needed overtime, but Nash ultimately finished off the Mavs in style, playing 50 minutes total and scoring 39 points to go along with 12 assists.
