Locked On Suns Friday: Make it three straight! The Suns lose 124-121 to New Orleans

Monty Williams has talked all year about getting punched in the mouth. This would certainly qualify. What gives?

Brendon goes solo after another low-energy game from the Suns without their veteran leaders, Ricky Rubio and Aron Baynes.

Highlights from the close contest include Elie Okobo stepping into the backup point guard role and playing well and Kelly Oubre Jr. looking increasingly comfortable as a legitimate secondary play-maker.
