Double colors?

Phoenix is wearing their orange alternates and Sacramento is in their road purples.  I don't ever recall seeing this (excluding the Lakers and their home yellows).  Has this ever happened before?

Note, I don't follow the NBA as much as I used to, so I might've missed this in the past.

Another thing:  BOTH teams above 25 after one quarter?!?!  AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!   :D

When I referee a basketball game, one of our techniques is to refer to teams by one-syllable colors, like "red", "blue", etc. There's no way I could call either team in this team "red" or "blue"...but "purple" and "orange" is a pain. Dark & light maybe? If one wore white, then you could call the other red or gold or blue, but this one is crazy.

On the last Gus Macker team that I was on, the refs referred to us as "maroon".  Well, we did play like a bunch of maroons...

above the college ranks, i know i've only seen it when the Lakers play, maybe once or twice when the Pacers wore their alts at home (i'm positive they have since introducing them, though i can't recall when)

So that's officially why the refs in our game today were referring to us as "red". We wear orange jerseys, and I was wondering why they were doing that. The one-syllableness was the only logical reason I could think of, even though I say "orange" more like a one-syllable word, but then again I'm from the south  :;):
