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: 37-16
37-16. The third quarter score, in Portland’s favor, last night in the Pacific Northwest, leading to a Blazers blowout of the Suns. The win clinched a playoff spot for Portland, and threw more dirt on to the grave of the Suns playoff dreams. Phoenix had well-rounded scoring last night, with Markieff Morris, Marcus Morris, P.J. Tucker, Eric Bledsoe, T.J. Warren, and Gerald Green all scoring in double figures. But the Suns shot 3-16 from three-point range, while Portland hit 12-27 from deep. It’s all over but the crying now for Suns fans.
