Suns win first preseason game under Jeff Hornacek
The dress rehearsal came and went with a reasonable number of minor glitches and quite a few expertly delivered lines.
But suiting up against Israeli team Maccabi Haifa on Monday night at US Airways Center didnít exactly make it tricky for the Suns and first-year coach Jeff Hornacek to hit most of their marks.
They also hit 62.5 percent of their shots, forced 23 turnovers, limited their guests to 39.2 percent shooting, finished plus-16 in rebounding and recorded 49 fast-break points.
ďI think we executed pretty well,Ē Hornacek said after a 130-89 rout in a cigarette-blindfold-caliber mismatch thatís difficult to translate into tangible evidence of things being upgraded and sustainable.
