The Phoenix Suns are now 11-48.
They didn’t even bother to show up to their final game before the “all star” break, a weekend which has seen plenty of Suns on the meaningless Friday and Saturday, hasn’t seen a Phoenix Sun playing on Sunday since 2012 (Steve Nash).
And the way they played on Wednesday night against the Clippers, the Suns won’t have anyone deserve to make the game in the foreseeable future.
Almost no one had a good game. Devin Booker, the closest thing the Suns have to an All-Star, scored only 10 points after saying yesterday they really needed a big game before the Break to set the right tone for a few days off. Booker made only 2 of 10 shots, and missed all three three-pointers.
The Suns did have two good performers:
- Kelly Oubre Jr. had 28 points off the bench, with 5 rebounds and 2 assists to boot
- Deandre Ayton was effective but couldn’t control Montrezl Harell on the other end (Harrell had 19 points)
Still, he showed this pretty turnaround again that he’s been making a lot of recently.
I’m all about this catch and immediate spin jumper being Deandre Ayton’s signature move. It’s so pretty. pic.twitter.com/EiKaaar7Kh— Mike Vigil (@ImPatBurke) February 14, 2019
That’s all I really have to say about this game.
