Oct. 19 (UPI) -- The Phoenix Suns took teamwork to another level Wednesday, running a perfectly synchronized fast break.

All five Suns players achieved the oddity with about nine minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Pat Connaughton was dribbling on the left side of his team's hoop. Connaughton attempted a pass, but was unbalanced and threw it away to Suns guard Eric Bledsoe. Bledsoe splinted down the court and slipped a pass to rookie Josh Jackson, who slammed home a dunk and put the Suns up 9-2.

But the most interesting part of the play was immediately after Bledsoe intercepted the pass. All five Suns players, who were in a defensive position, immediately shifted to go in exactly the same time. They kept the same movements for less than a second, before Bledsoe sped up to lead the pack.

Several videos of the sequence have since gone viral and the looping editions are impossible to stop watching.

The Suns, however, weren't impossible to figure out in their season opener. They fell 124-76 to the Blazers at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix.

Phoenix's 48-point loss was the most-lopsided setback in franchise history. The Blazers actually led the contest by 58 points at one point.
