Locked On Suns Wednesday: Phoenix Suns take down rival Lakers despite ridiculous Devin Booker ejection

Locked On Suns Wednesday: Phoenix Suns take down rival Lakers despite ridiculous Devin Booker ejection

Devin Booker left the game early in the third quarter, but the Suns prevailed over LeBron James and the Lakers. Brendon goes solo to recap the Phoenix Suns’ 114-104 road victory over the Lakers, where the Suns overcame the silly ejection of Devin Booker in the third quarter and 38 points from LeBron James to take down the Lakers. With the win, the Suns claimed sole possession of second place in the entire NBA standings, and Brendon breaks the game down from every angle, including how Booker is officiated and why Mikal Bridges was so important yet again.

Jalen Smith trying to find his footing in the NBA

Photo by Barry Gossage/NBAE via Phoenix Suns rookie Jalen Smith has not played well yet this season After being taken 10th overall in the 2020 NBA Draft, rookie big man Jalen Smith looks like he needs more seasoning before he is ready to make a positive impact in the NBA. Smith is only 20 years old, two years younger than any other Sun (Deandre Ayton is 22) and four years younger than anyone else. Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges and Devin Booker are all 24 this year. But age is not holding Smith back. If you’re ready to play, you’ll play. The Suns need what Smith...

Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul on becoming sixth all-time assist leader

Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul on becoming sixth all-time assist leader

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via We watched a future Hall of Famer meet a historic milestone last night. Chris Paul added to his extensive and impressive resume in the Suns’ win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night. In the second quarter, with his third dime of the evening, the 35 year old floor leader drove to the rim and kicked out to Mikal Bridges for an open three-pointer. Swish. That brought him to 9,888 career assists, leapfrogging Oscar Robertson for the sixth most assists in NBA history. It’s watching moments like this and witnessing him making history...

Mikal Bridges’ development on offense a big factor in Suns’ success

Mikal Bridges’ development on offense a big factor in Suns’ success

Photo by Christian Petersen/ His defense is often talked about but how helpful has his offense been? You know when you’re sitting outdoors and there’s that pesky mosquito that won’t leave you alone and you can’t escape its annoying swarming no matter how hard you try? That’s Phoenix Suns third year forward Mikal Bridges on the basketball court. Teams crave a player that’s extremely versatile and willing to do it all. Each roster around the league needs a guy who accepts one of the NBA’s most daunting tasks with a smile. Why is he smiling? Well, he’s...

Recap: Suns move to 15-9 with fourth straight win, this time over Giannis and the Bucks

Recap: Suns move to 15-9 with fourth straight win, this time over Giannis and the Bucks

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Milwaukee went slightly cold in the second half and the Suns’ stars took them home. The Suns took down the Bucks on national TV, 125-124, for their signature win. The beginning of the game was about deciphering matchups. The Suns started Frank Kaminsky again, which meant that Deandre Ayton began the game on Giannis Antetokounmpo. On the other end, rather than letting Donte DiVincenzo try his hand on Devin Booker, the Bucks went with Khris Middleton, and then hid Bryn Forbes on Mikal Bridges. The Suns also did a good job early in the game...

Locked On Suns Tuesday: Booker owns the fourth again, Suns come back against the Cavs to win their third straight

Devin Booker led the Phoenix Suns to a back-and-forth 119-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Brendon goes solo to break down the Phoenix Suns’ 119-113 win over the Cavs, including how Devin Booker’s insane shot-making and a defensive adjustment from Monty Williams set off a comeback in the fourth quarter, as well as the importance of E’Twaun Moore stepping up to play 40 minutes as a starter. To close, another edition of Bridges Breakout Watch looking at Mikal Bridges’ efficient scoring night and clutch play. Find us on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and...

Suns squeak past the Cavs grabbing their 14th win of the season

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The “MVP” chants are back in the arena as Booker scores a season high 36 points. An interesting and exciting game till the end, the Phoenix Suns inched past the Cleveland Cavaliers with a vintage Devin Booker game. Booker posted 36 points and got really loud MVP chants from the 1,500 fans in attendance. In a reversal of hero games, Chris Paul led the Suns over the Mavericks a week ago with 34/9/9 when Booker sat with a hamstring injury, and now it’s Booker leading the Suns over the hot-shooting Cavaliers with 36/8/5. Mikal Bridges also...

Nick Angstadt of Locked On Mavs joins the show to give the Dallas perspective on the Phoenix Suns’ rivalry with the Mavericks.
