The Suns are fighting but continue to struggle to find easy offense.

The Phoenix Suns fell to the Utah Jazz, 94-81, on Saturday night in an unattractive offensive performance, at least according to Bright Side of the Sun.

The Bright Side blames the Suns' inability to get easy shots as the primary culprit for why their offense at times can seem dysfunctional. Phoenix continues to struggle in third quarters, as they were outscored 27-18 in the third on Saturday.

There were a few positives to take away from the game, including the usage of a Goran Dragic-Sebastian Telfair backcourt. Dragic already has a scorer's mentality and Telfair has turned himself into a feisty defender and is still a deft penetrator with the ball in his hands. Jared Dudley finally had a good game with 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

The Suns fell to 3-4 on the season with three of their four losses coming on the road. But Bright Side gave the Suns props for never giving up, even when they were down by 22 points at one point.
