Lakers 105, Suns 92 – Beaten by a better team

November 21st, 2008 · 2 Comments

Hornets 108, Suns 95 – Too many turnovers

October 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Thanks to a ridiculously long Houston-Dallas game to starts TNT’s doubleheader, the Suns trailed 9-0 before I could even start watching (and in less than two minutes at that), and it never felt like the Suns were in their eventual 108-95 loss to the Hornets.
