Phoenix Suns Embarrassed On Home Court By OKC Thunder, 116-98

Yet another ugly loss for the Phoenix Suns who have many of them in the past few weeks. The Oklahoma City Thunder are simply in another class than the Suns and it showed. Unfortunately, in the process of getting blown out, the Suns disgraced themselves with multiple technical fouls and two ejections late in the game as Zabian Dowdell and Aaron Brooks were both tossed with under two minutes to go.

Alvin Gentry, with his team down 16 with five minutes to play, resorted to fouling Kendrick Perkins to put him on the free throw line. That didn't work either.

Vince Carter, who for some reason plays well against the Thunder, led the Suns with 28 points on 11 of 19 shooting. The Suns held Kevin Durant to 22 points on 8-18 but couldn't contain the rest of the explosive Thunder team.

As the Suns season comes to a close the team promise to fight and and act professionally. That didn't happen here tonight. The Suns' next game is on Friday at home against the Los Angeles Clippers.
