Bright Side of the Sun: Fourth quarter collapses doom Phoenix Suns, but the trend was already there

“Two fourth quarter collapses for the Phoenix Suns in the last two games. One from an 11-point lead, the other from an 8-point lead. In each case, the Suns shot just 31% while allowing 60% shooting to the other team. One line: 32-19 Rockets. The other line: 35-20 Timberwolves. “Giving up 35 points tonight in the fourth quarter, 34 (Sunday) night in the fourth quarter,” Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. “You are not going to win games.” Unfortunately, there is a trending decline in the 4th quarter for the Suns, who are just 14-12 since January 1.”

Valley of the Suns: Jeff Hornacek gets a taste of the past — last year’s past

“Sitting through the Suns’ press conference after a game against the Timberwolves on Tuesday felt mighty familiar. Not for coach Jeff Hornacek, whose eyes looked tired for the first time this year, but for media members. It was like a time machine taking us all the way back to, goodness, last year. Hornacek sounded a little bit like Lindsey Hunter, which by the way, isn’t a complete indictment on either coach. Hunter had Michael Beasley on his team, after all. And it also wasn’t Hornacek’s fault Tuesday that he had a few “I don’t know” answers following a 110-101 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.”

NBA.com/Timberwolves: When Given Opportunity, Shabazz Seized It

“Kevin Love marveled at Shabazz Muhammad’s play after Tuesday night’s 110-101 win over the Phoenix Suns. Not only did the rookie step up when called upon, scoring 20 points and adding six timely rebounds, but he did it on the road against what is currently a playoff team when the Wolves needed it most. But while Love was complimentary, he was not surprised. Muhammad’s performance was not something that came out of the blue.”
