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: 5
5. The number of years in a row, including this year, that the Phoenix Suns failed to make the playoffs. The Dallas Mavericks made it official last night, edging by the purple gang 107-104, thereby eliminating Phoenix from playoff contention. This despite another scorching game off the bench for Gerald Green (30 points on 10-19 shooting). The fat lady is belting out her tune.
