PHOENIX — The game between the Suns and the Nuggets has largely been sloppy and played without much intensity, and essentially devoid of any highlights.
It’s partly due to Phoenix throwing out seemingly random lineups during the team’s player development phase it’s going through, and partly due to Denver being mentally checked out to start the contest, with a game on tap at home against Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks coming up Wednesday.
