As little as a week ago, Ayton was mired in an early-season offensive slump that left fans and teammates scratching their heads — or screaming at their TVs — over why he was so hesitant whenever he got the ball. This...

Fourth quarter a waste land for Suns offense, what adjustments can be made?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The Phoenix Suns have a top 10 offense, but it drops to NBA’s worst in the fourth quarter. The Phoenix Suns are 8-7 on the year but have been within three points in the final minute in six of those seven losses.

But in the first 15 games, the Suns are...
