The Suns have punched their ticket for worst record in the league with this loss to the Warriors. The tank is over, as their fast start proved insurmountable to other teams. Does this mean they can bring Devin Booker back? See if he can beat Kobe’s 81? If anything, they should have done that tonight, as this was their final home game. Way to say “thank you” to the fans who remained, by having Danuel “I Played One Minute Last Season” House be the leading scorer.
House did give the fans a bit of a show with his final dunk, which was a nice gesture, but I’m not sure it makes up for the months of blatant non-competitiveness. Personally, I wouldn’t be too sad to see the lineup that played tonight play every game, but the average basketball consumer wants stars, and not stars looking sad in suits on the bench.
So, big props to House for dropping 22, a nice shiny new career high for him. He outscored Kevin Durant, maybe even outplayed him as well, that says more about Durant than it does about him but it’s still kinda cool.
