Trailblazers crush Suns by 48 points
PHOENIX— If the Phoenix Suns were a Broadway show, they’d close for good after opening night.
The Suns weren’t just bad in their 124-76 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in their season opener on Wednesday night. They were historically awful.
It was the most one-sided season-opening loss by any team in NBA history and the most one-sided loss by the Suns in any game in their 49 years.
Suns coach Earl Watson said he was “embarrassed” by what happened.
“Portland came in here and basically kicked our butts as bad as they could,” Watson said. “They didn’t have no sympathy.”
Damian Lillard scored 27 points and Pat Connaughton added a career-high 24 points, making 4 of 6 3-pointers for Portland.
