The loss of the Phoenix Suns against the Portland Blazers in their season opener is not only their worst in 49 years but also the most one-sided season-opening loss by any team in #Nba History. The 48-point gap exceeded Los Angeles Clippers' 139-93 (46-point) loss against the Denver Nuggets during opening day in 1987.It also topped Seattle's 44-point win against #The Phoenix (151-107) on April 2, 1988. In an interview with the CBS Sports, the Suns' coach Earl Watson said he was "embarrassed" by what happened.

Watson also added that Portland came to the game and basically kicked their butts as bad as they could.They showed no sympathy to the team.

He was really pleased with the team's defense throughout the game, and even though offense got off slow, it started to pick up gradually.The Blazers performed with a total of 48.9 percent field goals, 58.3 percent in the 3 point range and 78.6 percent free throws against the Suns with 31.5 percent total field goals, 25.9 percent 3 point shots and 72.2 percent free throws.

Likewise, Evan Turner scored 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two personal fouls.

Damian Lillard not only garnered 27 points but he also managed to collect five assists without committing a turnover. Without question, Damian continues to be one of the best backcourt players in the league. Meanwhile, with starting shooting guard C.J McCollum not around due to suspension, Connaughton was given big minutes during their blowout win against the Suns. Considering he only saw 8.1 minutes per game last season, this game can probably be chalked up as an outlier.
