Seven seconds or mess: A season in chaos

April 17th, 2009 · 4 Comments

PHOENIX – In a season of missed opportunities, bad luck and injuries, it would be easy to pick out any handful of games as the reason the Suns cleaned their lockers out on Thursday instead of beginning preparations for the playoffs.

Suns 119, Grizzlies 110             Another day, another meaningless game for your Phoenix Suns, but at the very least it would be nice for them to get a modicum of revenge on the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies, of course, beat Phoenix by 17 on Friday in Memphis in a game […]
