Phoenix Suns Team Report – December 10

=== Phoenix Suns Team Report – December 10 ===

(Sports Network) – The Phoenix Suns dropped their third straight game on
Tuesday with a 92-72 setback at the hands of the Miami Heat.

Shawn Marion poured in a game-high 27 points and added 10 rebounds for the
Suns, who have dropped six of their last seven contests. All three of Phoenix’
recent losses have come without star forward Amare Stoudemire, who will miss
up to four weeks with a badly sprained ankle.

Elsewhere on the injury front guard Leandro Barbosa left in the second quarter
with a chest injury and did not return. X-rays after the game were
inconclusive and he will be re-evaluated on Wednesday.

Phoenix will return home on Thursday to host the New Orleans Hornets.
