Gortat: Suns Frustrated; Missing Swagger

The Suns are often beaten the moment they take the floor against superior teams. They flounder and then fight, but ultimately they have lost all eight games to teams with .500 records or better.
The needle got stuck on the same song Sunday when the Suns fell behind as many as 20 points and came up short on a late rally for a 106-99 loss before a sold-out matinee crowd.
“Copy and paste,” Suns power forward Luis Scola said upon leaving the Garden.
“History definitely repeats itself,” (Michael) Beasley said. “I’m just along for the ride.
“We didn’t go out to have fun and play together,” said Gortat, who had his first double-double (18 points, 10 rebounds) since Nov. 12. “We didn’t enjoy being out there. It has to change. Every team, at some point, has some type of swagger and, quite honestly, we don’t have a swagger. Each one of us is frustrated.
“Each one of us wants to be a hero and do it on his own, but we can’t play like that. We’ve got to share the ball and create open shots for teammates.”
