Suns Strokes: Suns suffer worst loss in franchise history to Blazers

CJ Mc Collum Suspended In The First NBA Regular Season

The Portland Trail Blazers beat out the Phoenix Suns with a 48-point deficit in the #NBA season opener game on Wednesday with a final score of 124-76. The Trail Blazers fared fine without him. That group produced a plus-11.3 net rating in 419 minutes past year, and Portland went 14-6 in the 20 games during which all three were healthy enough to play.

The Blazers averaged 48.9 percent shooting from the field, 58.3 percent in three-point shooting, with 18 turnovers and 73 rebounds. Phoenix was 1 for 11 from 3-point range in the first two quarters to the Blazers' 7 of 13. Lillard had nine points and three assists in the quarter. But that wasn't the worst of it.

The new-look Jazz - without Gordon Hayward and George Hill - trailed most of the night before Alec Burks took over with a spectacular fourth quarter.

Portland's bench outscored Phoenix's 61-26.

"We can't use age as an excuse", Watson said.

"Portland came in here and basically kicked our butts as bad as they could", Watson said.

Winter Weather Forecast: Warmer Than Normal In Northeast, Says NOAA
Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA's Climate Prediction Center , said it would be surprising if this winter is as warm. It also predicts a milder and drier winter than previous year for the Southern Plains, Southwest and California.

The Suns' worst loss of last season was by 40 points to the Los Angeles Clippers.

The NBA has made a decision to suspend Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard C.J. McCollum for the season-opener for leaving the bench during a preseason game, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. To lose a player that can get you 20 points or more or any night at ease will be tough to handle, and the Blazers will have to step up and either get those points from somewhere else, or play some tough defense.

Suns: Len sat out the game with a sprained left ankle. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. with pregame coverage beginning 30 minutes earlier on 98.7 FM, Arizona's Sports Station.

Simmons, the 2016 No. 1 pick who missed all last season with a foot injury, had 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Overall, the Suns have won 13 of the past 17 meetings.
