PHOENIX -- In a race being run backward, the Phoenix Suns are about to catch another competitor.
For now, there are three NBA teams with winning percentages darn-near equal to or even worse than the 18-39 Suns (the Washington Wizards check in at .315 to the Suns' .316.).
Defeat No. 39 was accomplished Sunday at US Airways Center, where the San Antonio Spurs -- working without Tony Parker -- tuned the Suns, 97-87.
Parker -- recently playing his way into MVP speculation -- has a skeeter bite or something on his right triceps and took the night off.
It didn't matter to the Spurs, who were on the last leg of their annual Rodeo Road Trip.
"Once you have your foundation and culture, you know what to expect," Suns interim head coach Lindsey Hunter said in tribute to how the team with the league's top record can maintain a high level of play when not at full strength.

Lindsey Hunter had a tremendous reaction to Michael Beasley airballing a jumper on Friday night. The Suns coach stared down his player with a classic “shaking my head” (SMH) expression. He then moved his gaze down to his bench where he appeared to be looking for others to corroborate what he had just seen.
Beasley was subbed out about a minute later. He was 2-for-8 for six points...
Shannon Brown hasn’t played in the last 4 games with the Suns, a coaches decision. When asked about it, Brown, who averages 11.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2 assists a game, says he hasn’t been given a “real answer” and the benching is “undeserved”.
According to Arizona Sports:
Brown said he was talked to “but nobody gave me no real answer. They just sent me around...

A right triceps contusion will sideline Tony Parker for Sunday's game with the Phoenix Suns.
The Spurs released the information Saturday on its Twitter account. Gary Neal is also questionable for the game due to tightness in his left calf. Nando De Colo, who hasn't done much of anything, could get some extra playing time but isn't worth a look in anything but deep...
