Suns Solar Panel, ep. 176: It was a bad decade for the Phoenix Suns

Tim, Dave and Greg talk about the decade in review for the Phoenix Suns

Tim, Dave and Greg are together again to talk about the Phoenix Suns.

We start by discussing the Golden State loss, and put the Suns “clutch” performance into perspective after they went 0-9 on threes in the fourth quarter where they started with a 12-point lead.

Suns in clutch situations this year (game within 5 points with 5 minutes left)

  • 4-12
  • OffRTG- 95.2
  • DefRTF- 115
  • Net Rating- -19.9
  • EFG% 42.9
  • Opp EFG% 51.3

Then we wrap up the decade by sharing what we thought was the most influential decision the team made over a 10-year span.

Was it the hiring of Lance Blanks? Or the hiring of Ryan McDonough? Or the firing of Alvin Gentry? Or are there more ‘defining moments’ of this past playoff-less decade?

Plus, we have the stat of the day and give out Espo’s weekly Duncy Award.

Watch now!
