Suns vs Grizzlies recap & Suns vs Timberwolves preview

It's Saturday and my world has gotten very busy as of late which coincides nicely with the rather early end to the Suns season.

Or to look at it another way, a very early start to the Suns 2009 exhibition pre-season schedule. That's certainly what we had last night in Memphis. Here's the proof:

  • Nash and Shaq played less then 20 minutes each while Dragic and Lopez each had over 20 minutes
  • Only one Suns starter was in double figures
  • 22 turnovers...actually this was the 8th time this season the Suns had 22 or more turnovers so perhaps this isn't a good indicator or pre-season sloppy
  • Lou Amundson tied for team high score with 13

I am not going to bore you with the details since clearly at this point in the Season of Fail you or I really don't care (and to be completely honest I watched maybe 15 minutes of this game and couldn't bring myself to ignore Mrs. Stan and slog through it on Tivo later in the evening).

There is a lot of interest however in what comes next and by that I don't mean tonight's battle royale in Minneapolis where if we are lucky a guy named Kevin Ollie will be the starting point guard.
