Suns off to good start under Lindsey Hunter
It's early, but:
Hoping to reveal a few changes with even more long-range impact than Michael Beasley’s new hairstyle, the Phoenix Suns brought some alterations home to US Airways Center on Thursday night.
Waiting for them were the Los Angeles Clippers, who — working without superstar point guard Chris Paul — were downgraded from Lob City to Lob Suburb. The Western Conference’s third-seeded team didn’t have enough juice to avoid their third consecutive loss, falling 93-88 in the home debut of Suns interim head coach Lindsey Hunter.
With Wednesday’s triumph over the Kings in Sacramento as their re-launch point, the Suns unveiled a few Hunter-inspired differences. While the same players demonstrated a sense of urgency during portions of their 13-28 start under since-departed Alvin Gentry, they do seem to be playing a bit more for each other than before.
