Unfortunately we can't beat the better teams, especially on the road.
I also blame to much "hero ball" mentality early in the shot clock. It becomes contagious.I pin this game on a complete lack of will and urgency, noting more. Shots will fall but it takes a legit effort to start a game off with a lot more focus and energy and it takes not being lazy and hustle to get a rebound. Phoenix simply wanted it more.
Problem is our lulls seem to come against good teams. Are they lulls?HYDRA refused to show up for the 2nd straight game and yet we took the 2nd best team to overtime on the road.
We are bound to have a lull here and there, especially after reeling off 9 straight wins. Just sucks that it had to happen against the Mavs and Suns.
In any event, I'm ready for a brand new winning streak!
