THIS PHOENIX IS NOT RISING

After the Suns lost to the Brooklyn Nets – a franchise-worst 8th straight home loss — the Arizona Republic suggested the “losing effort has become expected and fans in a sparse crowd validated it by not booing.” Really? How about fans just staying away from a record-tying 13th consecutive setback?
