Phoenix Suns win: The 3 best keys on a not-so-great night

The Phoenix Suns did not play a great game. The search party that finally found Devin Booker’s rhythm (it had been missing for the better part of a game and a half) was unable to locate Dario Saric’s shot. Though the game flow and substitution patterns partially dictated it, Jevon Carter’s offense was not part […] Phoenix Suns win: The 3 best keys on a not-so-great night - Valley of the Suns - Valley of the Suns - A Phoenix Suns Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Locked On Suns Friday: Deandre Ayton keeps it going as Suns solve Kings for win No. 40

Ayton led the Phoenix Suns to a 122-114 win over the Sacramento Kings.

Rapid Recap: Suns blast the Heat, 106-86 behind big bench contributions

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The starters struggled but the bench, along with Deandre Ayton, was excellent The Miami Heat got off to a hot start, but the Phoenix Suns pulled even and then ran away with it thanks to big contributions from the backups to win 106-86. Dario Saric, Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne, Torrey Craig and Jevon Carter had 65 huge points, shooting about 67% from the field. Among the Suns starters, Deandre Ayton had an excellent game with 19 points, 13 rebounds and (I really think more than) 1 block and a couple of steals. We got early-season Suns...
The Dario Dilemma

The Dario Dilemma

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Saric has had a rough 14-game span. Is this his new normal? Isn’t funny how we develop a connection to certain bench players on the Phoenix Suns? We gravitate to the nicknames we create and the personalities of our favorite players. Frank the Tank. Pyramid Papi. Stix. Langston Lagoon. C4. Super Dario. It sounds like a platoon of misfit Marines ready to head off into the Vietnamese jungle circa 1967. Dario Saric has a special place in many Suns’ fans hearts for his hustle and grit.
