Suns Sting Hapless Hornets

The Suns beat up on the Hornets on Sunday as they cruised to a 92-75 victory. The team was at home and improved their home record to an even 16-11 this season. They are now an even 26-26 this season. The team showed no signs of losing and was able to beat the Hornets in each quarter. They are an aging team led by veteran Steve Nash who can still ball with the best of them and continues to show why he should be considered one of the NBA’s best point guards.

Dudley led the Suns with 21 points in the contest. Frye had 11 rebounds to contribute to the win while the veteran Steve Nash had 14 huge assists. The team outscored the Hornets in each quarter but the fourth when both teams scored 17. They scored nearly 25 points in each quarter too minus the 17-point fourth. This included 26 in the first, 24 in the second, and 25 in the third.

The hornets had two scorers lead the team in points. The two had just 14 points in the contest, though, which illustrated just how poor the team’s performance was. The team’s highest scoring period was in the first when they scored 21. They scored a combined 34 points in the second half as they scored 17 in each quarter. The team is deep in the NBA’s basement as they are just 13-40 on the season while carrying an 8-19 away record.
