Head Coach for the Suns said, “It’s always great to play against Coach JJ. We have a deep friendship and respect for each other goes back many years. Tonight‘s game was typical unfortunately with the result being the same. What a great first half but we could not finish our shots and especially our free throws. That is indeed correctable.” We will be ready next time when they come to our place”.
