Jermaine O'Neal Goaltending a Buzzer-Beater Is All You Need to Know About the Suns' Season
Haven't been paying attention to the Phoenix Suns this year? Don't worry, one play from Tuesday night's game against the Houston Rockets is all you need to know about to have a clear picture of how this season is going.
That play involved Suns center Jermaine O'Neal getting called for goaltending on James Harden's buzzer-beating three-point attempt, when the game was tied at 98.
With that, the Suns have now lost 10 games in a row, maintaining their comfortable spot in last place in the Western Conference.
Their last victory was against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 18, when Kobe Bryant sat out.
