Phoenix Suns Won't Quit...At Least There's That

The Phoenix Suns are 6-11 having just lost their third-straight home game to a team with a record even worse than their own. They had a lead on the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night before the energy gave out and the game slipped away in the third quarter. Just another tough loss in a season with too many of them already.

Steve Nash pointed out the obvious, saying, "We just don't have the talent to go out there and win games. We've got to find a little bit something extra; we've got to find a little magic and our chemistry and cohesion and we haven't found it yet."

↵

Nash also admitted that it's difficult to build chemistry when you are losing games. It's a Catch-22.

↵

So what do you do?

↵

"You got to just keep your head down and keep working and keep believing and if you do that long enough, good things will happen," Nash explained.

↵

Coach Gentry had a similar response in his postgame comments, vowing to never give up the fight.

↵

"There's nobody that's going to quit. We're not going to let anybody quit and we'll continue to try to figure it out and we'll continue to try and turn our season around. No one's going to throw in the towel, I know that. I'm not going to allow that."

↵

So there you have it. Your Phoenix Suns. Not enough talent to just win games without a little magic but refusing to quit.

↵

It's good to hear that players and coaches making millions and millions of dollars to play a game won't be quiting anytime soon...as for the rest of us, when does Spring Training start?
