Every morning after a Suns game, A Dry Heat brings you the Suns Stat of the Day – the number that sums up the previous day’s win or loss. Because numbers speak louder than words. Or a number speaks a 1000 words. Or something.
Suns Stat of the Day: 20
20. The size of the lead that the Suns squandered to the Thunder last night at the US Airways Center. OKC ended up winning by 12 points. Sigh. Markieff Morris came out on fire, pouring in 16 points in the first quarter alone (he only finished the game with 20). But it was pretty much all downhill from there for Phoenix, despite a strong game off the bench for T.J. Warren (18 points, 5 boards, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 block). Four games out of the playoffs with eight games left. It’s over, ladies and gentlemen.
