Suns offense fueled by defense

PHOENIX -- Despite their fast-break prowess and reliance on point guards (when healthy), the Suns last season generated enough assists to register 29th among NBA teams. Coach Jeff Hornacek regularly explained this type of statistical corruption can happen when your primary ball handlers are your top scoring options.

Meaning Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, Manu Ginobili, Tiago Splitter...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Phoenix Suns

Quietly one of history’s best franchises, the Suns rose from the ashes again and found success in the post-Nash era for the first time with a quick-hitting attack flanked by three-point shooting and a international dynamo of a point guard. The unfairness of the league is apparent because there’s a real chance they could miss the playoffs even though they’d almost be a lock...
