Locked On Suns Monday: Kobe thoughts plus we recap the Spurs and Grizzlies games

As the basketball world mourns Kobe Bryant, we give our quick thoughts before discussing the Suns’ weekend road trip.

A few hours before the Phoenix Suns were scheduled for tip-off against the Memphis Grizzlies, the NBA world was hit with the shocking news of the death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna. We give our initial thoughts on their passing.

Then we recap the Suns’ weekend road trip, including a win in San Antonio and a loss in Memphis, in which the Suns were hampered by foul trouble and ineffective offense. Ugly games aren’t going the Suns’ way as much as they did early in the season.

Still, Devin Booker continues to dazzle, despite the loss of his idol on Sunday.

As usual, stay tuned for our Free Throws, Flagrant Fouls, and Stats to Watch as the Suns failed to make up ground against the Grizzlies in the race for the eighth seed.
