Locked On Suns Tuesday: Suns blown out by Nets as playoff hopes fading fast

Another loss has Phoenix on the edge of staying in contention for the No. 8 seed.

The rollercoaster season for the Phoenix Suns continues. After a near-.500 stretch of basketball in January, losses are now starting to mount at a high rate for this team. Now sitting at 20-30 following tonight’s blowout loss, hopes to stay in contention for the playoffs are fading away.

Even though Deandre Ayton and Kelly Oubre Jr. put together solid performances in Brooklyn, Devin Booker was the opposite, on one of those rare cold nights. Booker only finished with 11 points, as the Nets’ defense made it a priority for anyone else to beat them.
