Default Suns lose, even when they played well

Oh, this particular Suns defeat was really peculiar. With Goran Dragic and Michael Beasley combining to make 23 shots in 30 attempts, Phoenix managed to achieve its eighth consecutive defeat while shooting a season-high 61.1 percent. With the NBA record (Washington Wizards losing to the Chicago Bulls in 2001) of shooting 63.4 percent in a defeat still within reach until very late, the Suns’ Friday shift included coughing up an 18-point first-half lead and rallying from as far back as 11 in the second half.

Dragic and Beasley also teamed up for 11 of the Suns' 22 turnovers, which were converted into 31 points by the Warriors.

“For us to shoot 61 percent and still lose is mind-boggling,” Suns coach Lindsey Hunter said, “but we had 22 turnovers in some crucial situations during the game. We’ve got to keep working to clean those things up and try to take the little victories out of this and keep building.”
