On the night the Phoenix Suns were resoundingly defeated at home by the Adelaide 36ers.
Incredible knockout for Arizona team, beaten 124-134 by Australian team, the first non-NBA lineup since 2015 to beat an American franchise.
The fall, albeit in a minor pre-season contest, made a lot of noise and sparked mockery on social media. At Twitter, in fact, fans of opposing teams went wild, pointing out that in the Australian league Adelaide is not even a top team.
