Placing more emphasis on togetherness

In PHX, the Suns held a 30-minute meeting recently in which players created "collage posters they made about togetherness that were put on the locker room wall."

Coach Terry Porter "said the overlying message was the same fun-focused one he shared with the team at practice" earlier in the day.

"The reality is, 'Guys, we're still a good team. We still have got some good things going on. Let's not put the weight of the world on us, just because we lose a couple games. Granted, we'd like to play better at home. We haven't. Let's regroup, come out and play better. Play with more energy. Have more fun.' "
