PHOENIX – Suns forward Michael Beasley is a noticeably new man since Lindsey Hunter’s appointment as interim head coach.

Time: 8:30 p.m. MST TV: ESPN With two losses following two wins, the Lindsey Hunter honeymoon phase is over. That’s unfortunate, because the Suns would love to pretend they’ve moved on without Steve Nash when he enters the US Airways Center tonight sporting a different shade of purple.

He admitted as much before Wednesday’s win against the Philadelphia 76ers, and at the forefront of his problems has been – and might always be – how he handles his lineups.
