PHOENIX -- Goran Dragic scored 12 points, including the game-winning basket on a left-handed baby hook with seven-tenths of a second left, and the Phoenix Suns snapped their longest losing streak in eight years in dramatic fashion with an 82-80 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night. Jared Dudley and Shannon Brown had 15 points each for the Suns, who had dropped seven straight games dating back to a Nov. 27 win at Cleveland. The win allowed Phoenix (8-15) to remain with the Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs as the only NBA teams without an eight-game losing streak over the past eight years. Rudy Gay had 21 points to lead Memphis (14-5). His turnaround 16-footer tied the game at 80 with 46.8 seconds left. Dudley and Gay each missed chances to give their teams the lead before Dragic stopped in the paint, twirled and hooked a shot around Memphis center Marc Gasol for the winning basket. Zach Randolph, who had 38 points and 22 rebou...

Suns sticking with Gentry

After missing the playoffs last year, the Phoenix Suns made some big offseason moves in an effort to return to the status of a postseason team. Some people, including myself, said that nothing the Suns could do would be enough to make up for the loss of Steve Nash and their lack of talent all throughout the roster. A quarter of the way through the season and it looks like that...

The Suns Lose Power, Phoenix Grows Cold

The Power Forward situation in Phoenix is dreadful. Luis Scola returned to the starting line up, and only managed to play for 13 minutes. Thanks to terrible shooting, he finished the night 4 points to go with a rebound, assist, steal and block. Markieff Morris, meanwhile, had 11 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals. That craptastic line was still better than Scola’s, so he may go...
