Has Phoenix Finally Found Their Backcourt?

The Phoenix Suns and general manager Ryan McDonough aren’t afraid to think outside the box, and that is exactly what they did with their starting backcourt of Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight. Despite criticism, that investment is starting to pay off for Phoenix, but other parts of the team aren’t performing as well as they had hoped. The Suns organization loves point guards...

Suns need to clean up sloppy effort, with or without Bledsoe

The Phoenix Suns turned in arguably their worst performance of the season on Monday night without their top player. Even though Eric Bledsoe could be sidelined again on Wednesday night, they hope they'll be better prepared for their second matchup in a span of four days with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Eric Bledsoe is a Legitimate Candidate for Most Improved Player

It is not very common to see an already proven player in the discussion for the NBA's Most Improved Player award, but then again, not many athletes are able to elevate their game the way Eric Bledsoe has this season. The Kentucky product has made great strides since entering the NBA in 2010, but none have been as significant as his improvement between last season and this one. The...

Suns first 5 games show positive trends

The Suns are 3-2 through five games. Just as they were each of the past two seasons. Every season, obviously, is its own and has little to no bearing on the next. But still, it's worth looking at a couple numbers for comparison -- even with such a small sample size. The Suns averaged 97.4 points in the first five games in 2013, coach Jeff Hornacek's first season at the helm, and...
