Locked On Suns Tuesday: Melo and Dame bring Portland back from 16-point deficit to beat Suns

The Suns lost another heart-breaker at home.

We take you inside the Suns’ 1-point loss to Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers in a game the Suns in which led by 16 at one point. Carmelo Anthony was solid throughout and Portland’s star backcourt of Lillard and CJ McCollum took over in the second half.

Without Devin Booker, the Suns were hard-pressed for points. That made Kelly Oubre Jr.’s big night, especially in the clutch, even more impressive. But inefficient games from Ricky Rubio and Mikal Bridges hurt the Suns.

The Suns dropped two games in heart-breaking fashion leading up to Deandre Ayton’s return tomorrow night in Los Angeles. Will things change soon?
