PHOENIX – With 10 games left in their season the Phoenix Suns are all but letting reality set in.
The 91-83 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday evening put the Suns four games back of the Memphis Grizzlies and the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
The Grizzlies hold the tiebreaker over the Suns, so really they are five games back. A task nearly impossible to overcome.
“It feels like it’s over just because we haven’t played as well or won games. It’s disappointing but it’s been disappointing the whole season,” Steve Nash said.
The Suns were in the Western Conference Finals and played until the last day in May just last season and will now be finished by the middle of April.
New Sun Marcin Gortat knows the playoff talk for this team is over.
“After this game, I don’t think we’re going to be talking about playoffs this year anymore,” Gortat said Sunday.
There you have it. Two Suns not trying to skate around the situation and accepting it for what it is.
