I hate to say it, but the Suns' refusal to stand up for a teammate is what I think sparked the loss
When Jason Terry put LB on his butt for NO REASON midway through the second quarter, the Mavs seemed to sense blood in the water. Sure enough, nobody on the Suns stood up for LB. Nobody clocked the thug Terry, and the wimpy Suns were outscored 33-14 going into the locker room.
I guarantee Raja would have gotten himself thrown out taking up for his teammate.
