January 20th, 2010 · 6 Comments

PHOENIX — Step back from the ledge, Suns fans. No, the Suns did not lose to the now 3-38 New Jersey Nets. They even managed to maintain their first double-digit lead of 2010, pulling away with a 118-94 victory after the Nets kept things close in the first half. Nobody should begin to think the […]

Bobcats 125, Suns 99 — Rock bottom?

January 16th, 2010 · 5 Comments

The Suns can only hope this is rock bottom, because I’m not sure how much further they can fall after being embarrassed in Charlotte of all places on Saturday, 125-99.
