Suns vs. Magic reaction: Reaction to Suns' 115-94 loss to Orlando

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

There's not too many positive things to say about the Phoenix Suns' 115-94 loss to the Magic last night.

After building a 10-point lead heading into the locker room at halftime, the Phoenix Suns gave up 40 points to the Orlando Magic in the third quarter and saw that lead quickly erased. Luis Scola and Michael Beasley scored 24 and 22 points respectively for the Suns, who couldn't keep up with the 24 points J.J. Redick put up coming off the bench and Glen Davis and Arron Afflalo's 22-point evenings.

The Suns will head to South Beach tonight to take on the Miami Heat, but Bright Side of the Sun still isn't encouraged with what they've seen out of the Suns three games into the 2012-2013 campaign.

I don't have high expectations for this team this season (35 wins) and I'm not surprised they are struggling early in the season. But lack of consistent effort is not acceptable. Period. Bad teams in Phoenix always struggle holding on to fans. But bad teams that don't put up a fight don't deserve any fans.

The Suns are led in scoring by Scola who is averaging 17.3 points a contest. Phoenix is in the middle of a three game road swing to the East Coast. After facing the Heat tonight, they'll head up the coast to take on the Charlotte Bobcats before returning home to see the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.
