Last night, the Suns (9-2) took on the Sacramento Kings (4-7) at Arco Arena in CA. The Suns had a 19 point lead and then decided to stop playing basketball. They allowed the Kings, whom they should have buried, to tie the game with only a couple minutes left in the game. The Kings eliminated a 19 point deficit, but Stat took the Suns on his shoulders and scored the last 8 points of the game, but he missed his last two free throws that could have sealed the game. He made up for it, though, with a game winning block of a three-point attempt with 2 seconds left in the game. The Suns held off to win 100-98 (too close for comfort). This is another game where the Suns should have dominated the entire event, did for a few minutes, but let the other team right back in it so they had to fight harder than they had all night just to win. There is more work to do than I had thought, but, we are still in a winning streak of now 6 in a row. Tonight they play the Kings again, but this time here in Phoenix. GO SUNS!
