The Phoenix Suns have been destroyed from deep, and it’s their own fault

The Phoenix Suns have been destroyed from deep, and it’s their own fault

Photo by Sam Forencich/NBAE via The Suns have done a less-than-stellar job defending the three-point line. The season is young for the Phoenix Suns, having completed just three games thus far on their 82-game schedule. I know you’re carrying the one and crunching the numbers, but that equates to just 3.6% of the way through the marathon. There is no need to panic at the 1-2 start for Phoenix, especially when you consider the three games played came in four nights. Thus is the life of the spotlight in the NBA. The Suns played two of their three games on nationally...

Court Cultivators: A look at the Suns’ young talent and their development after Week One

Court Cultivators: A look at the Suns’ young talent and their development after Week One

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports Bridges and Johnson welcome us back with minor improvement. Ayton? Not so much. Bringing our attention to the young Phoenix Suns, how did week one of the NBA season treat them? It is early, and the overreaction is not something to center our chakra on. The little improvements visibly noticeable is what we will target in this series throughout the season. Mikal Bridges, Deandre Ayton, and Cameron Johnson will be the main focus here as they are the primary pieces of the Suns’ young core. After a short off-season, there is still much to be...

Top 5 Phoenix Suns NBA Jam: Tournament Edition Duos

Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via We all love NBA 2K, but remember NBA Jam? It’s Video Game Week here at SB Nation and, as the new season has tipped off for the Phoenix Suns, I’m looking backwards in their franchise history to answer one simple question. I’ll get to that inquiry in a moment (or you could read the title of this piece and probably figure out what I’m going to ask). When talking about video games and the Phoenix Suns, the last 10 years haven’t been too kind. Granted, NBA 2K22 has Phoenix rated as an overall 82 — tied for the 3rd best team...

Portland banks on their rest advantage to blaze past Phoenix Suns

Portland banks on their rest advantage to blaze past Phoenix Suns

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports The Suns defense could not hold up against a red-hot Portland team. The Phoenix Suns lost their 2nd game of the season in Portland on a 134-105 blow-out. After sweeping the Blazers last season and handing them a blow-out in the pre season finale, it was time for the Suns to be on the receiving end of it. And I have to tell you, it was not pretty. CJ McCollum led all scorers with 28 points, including 6-12 from three. For the Suns, Booker had 21-4-4, while Mikal added 14. McGee and Payton each added 12 off the bench. Ayton had a poor 8 points...

Suns take down Lakers 115-105 to grab their first win of the season

Suns take down Lakers 115-105 to grab their first win of the season

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports A bounce back performance by the Suns led to frustrating loss for the Lakers. The Phoenix Suns got their first victory against the Los Angeles Lakers 115-105. A fun 3rd quarter helped push the Suns up to a 32-point lead over a frustrated Lakers team. From fights on the bench and the crowd, to a very slow and individual offense, the Lakers had no answer all night. It was the fight for the first win of the season for both teams. Everything that could go wrong for the Lakers did, and everything that could go right for the Suns did. It was a...

Milestone: Suns’ Chris Paul first NBA player ever with 20k points and 10k assists

Milestone: Suns’ Chris Paul first NBA player ever with 20k points and 10k assists

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Phoenix Suns point god Chris Paul joins an elite club of one. With his basket in the second quarter of the game between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers on ESPN, Suns point guard Chris Paul became the first player ever to accumulate 20,000 points and 10,000 assists in a single career. Let me repeat: no NBA player has ever reached the 20k/10k threshold with points and assists. Throughout history, Hall of Famers John Stockton (19.7k, 15.8k), Oscar Robertson (26.7k, 9.8k) and Gary Payton (21.8k, 8.9k) came close to reaching the 20/10...

Suns owner Robert Sarver refutes reports of misconduct

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Phoenix, we have a problem. Maybe. Probably. But maybe. A report came out today that ESPN is preparing a long, indepth story that will implicate Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver on a number of concerning issues. Breaking: The NBA is preparing for a massive story accusing #Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism, sexism and sexual harassment in a series of incidents, sources say. With enough evidence to support such claims, there’s a real chance the league would forcibly remove Sarver.— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) October 22,...
