At the time this appeared to be a backbreaking loss. The Lakers came in to Phoenix to play the Suns having won three consecutive games after falling to a season-worst eight games under .500.
They were all set to make it four straight as they controlled the first three quarters and took a double digit lead into the fourth.
With 10 minutes left the game looked over with the Lakers up 13 and cruising. After that, though, the wheels just totally came off.
Phoenix outscored the LA 27-8 the rest of the way and Michael Beasley of all people lit up LA for 10 fourth quarter points.
It was a devastating, momentum-killing loss, especially considering it was just the first game of their seven-game Grammy road trip and came against the worst team in the conference.
And to top it all off, Dwight Howard re-injured his shoulder and missed the next three games.
