Phoenix Suns Lose in Overtime to Memphis Grizzlies
Jason Richardson: Went 1 for 11 from the field.
The Phoenix Suns lost their second game in a row and fell back to the .500 mark after losing in overtime at home to the 9-14 Memphis Grizzlies. The Suns held a 92-89 lead with 2.8 seconds left in regulation but let Rudy Gay sink a three-pointer from the corner to tie it up as time expired. In overtime, the Suns could do nothing, scoring only six points as the Grizzlies scored 12, including four from Zach Randolph.
It was a brutal night shooting for the Suns, who hit only 42 percent of their field goal attempts and a pathetic 63 percent of their free-throw attempts. Back-up point guard Goran Dragic led the Suns with 17 points.
