Game Thread: Suns (9-5) at Thunder (1-13)

Suns 99, Thunder 98           The Suns now move into the gimme portion of their schedule, but as we’ve learned from this team in recent years, there’s no such thing as a gimme part of the schedule. A game in Oklahoma City is about as close as it’s going to get […]
