Although it’s 106 degrees outside in Las Vegas, the Suns’ shooting didn’t match the weather in the first game of the NBA Las Vegas Summer League.
Although the Suns were the hottest shooting team in the league during the regular season, the iron was unkind to them on Friday against the Rockets. Shooting just 40 percent from the floor, the Suns never seemed to get into a groove offensively in a 100-82 defeat to Houston.
“I thought that they played hard but they just got tired in the fourth quarter,” Suns Summer League Head Coach Dan Majerle said. “We didn’t shoot the ball real well. but that’s how this is. These guys haven’t been together very long and they don’t know what each other do well yet.”
