Cam Payne filling in well for Chris Paul despite Suns’ skid

Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports Payne delivered when asked to provide in Paul’s absence two years ago and is finding more of a rhythm this season Two years ago, Phoenix Suns backup point guard Cameron Payne thrived as Chris Paul’s replacement. With Paul limited with a shoulder injury in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs against the Los Angeles Lakers and later out with COVID-19 through the first two games of the Western Conference Finals, Payne stepped up.

Cameron Payne brings a welcomed pace of play to the Suns

Cameron Payne brings a welcomed pace of play to the Suns

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports Winning is fun. Doing so with pace? Exciting! Prior to the start of Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves we learned that Chris Paul would spend his time not on the court, but in street clothes on the bench. The injury he suffered against the Philadelphia 76ers – soreness in his right heel – negated his availability for the game. This meant that Cameron Payne would get the start against the Wolves. Chris Paul (sore right heel) OUT tonight vs. #Timberwolves #Suns— Duane Rankin (@DuaneRankin) November 9,...

Booker, Payne step up playmaking in Paul’s absence yet again

Booker, Payne step up playmaking in Paul’s absence yet again

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The two combined for 18 assists and 1 turnover against the Timberwolves. The injuries are seeming to pile up early for the Phoenix Suns, and Chris Paul’s right heel soreness is just the latest of the bunch. The depth in the guard rotation is being challenged, and Devin Booker and Cameron Payne are ready to answer the call. Most memorably during the 2021 Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Clippers, the two have had a knack for picking up the slack when Paul misses time. That trend continued when the Suns (now 8-3) beat...
