P.J. Tucker gives Suns a jolt of intensity

PHOENIX -- From body language that needed little translation and an interview session that, for him, qualified as almost seismic, Jeff Hornacek's displeasure was obvious. "We played hard for about 12 minutes in the game," the Suns coach said after his team lost a home encounter to a losing team from the less-than-prickly Eastern Conference. "That was about it." Not one to make reflexive...

So the Suns' 114-112 double-overtime loss to the now-5-1 Sacramento Kings on Friday night hardly provided a final judgment on anything. We really don't know if the point-guard overload will flourish, crash and burn or land somewhere in the middle. It's...
