Five takeaways from Adelaide 36ers stunning Phoenix Suns in preseason

Adelaide 36ers coach C.J. Bruton compared their matchup Sunday against Phoenix to the Rocky movies when the underdog southpaw from Philadelphia faced Apollo Creed.

“There’s a chance when you mingle and you dance together, is this an exhibition or is this not,” Bruton said before the preseason game. “Every game I step on the stage or have my team step on the stage, we’re here to compete.”

The 36ers did more than compete.

They outplayed the Suns in an 134-124 upset at Footprint Center before a crowd of 15,152 that began making an early exit late in the fourth.
