Bright Side Of The Sun "It was not pretty, but the Suns collected another win over a bad team, which is what good teams are supposed to do. It is hard to describe the Rudy Gay Experience live, which is why I feel for the writers of the Toronto Raptors (6-12) and sense a collective sigh of relief from the Memphis media..." December 07
Fox Sports Arizona "Paired with Tuesday’s disturbing rout in Memphis, the Suns' defense-oriented triumph in Houston the following night provides one important message. And that message is ... drum roll ... we're looking at raging inconsistency. Losing by 19 points to a Grizzlies team competing without Zach..." December 06
Grantland "Part 3 To honor the great Larry Bird, Bill and Jalen have decided to do a leaguewide wrap-up every 33 days, or, as they call it, every Birdmester. In this episode — Part 3 of our video series — Bill and Jalen praise the funniest YouTube video, the biggest media-created controversy, the most..." December 06
Grantland "Bill and Jalen are back! To honor the great Larry Bird, Bill and Jalen have decided to do a league-wide wrap-up every 33 days — or, as they call it, every Birdmester. In their first episode, they crown the best team in the league, the best tanking performance thus far, the league’s least valuable..." December 05
Arizona Republic "Eric Bledsoe had 20 points and seven assists to lead Phoenix to a 97-88 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night that snapped the Suns’ two-game losing streak. P.J. Tucker added 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with six rebounds. Channing Frye had 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting and..." December 05
Arizona Republic "Take 32 points and 16 rebounds out of the Memphis lineup and the Grizzlies’ roster did not look like it would have anyone Tuesday night to make up for such a gaping hole against the Suns. Meet the replacement front line of Ed Davis and Jon Leuer. The former was the owner of a 20-point,..." December 04
NBA.com "Perhaps the most pleasant change for Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek during post-practice interviews was the lack of injury-related questions he had to answer. With Eric Bledsoe back from a calf injury that forced him to miss six games, the Suns are essentially back at full strength. “He came..." December 03
Bledsoe, Dragic expected to start though Hornacek said Tucker nearly ran into Dragic at practice; joked might be time for no-contact jerseys
Salt Lake Tribune "For Ty Corbin, the meeting Friday night with his friend and former assistant was "bittersweet." After all, Jeff Hornacek had just come into his old stomping grounds and soundly stomped the Utah Jazz. One night later, there was nothing bitter about it. "It feels better," Corbin said after his..." December 01
Fox Sports Arizona "Goran Dragic is learning, day by day, that sharing your space with a newcomer requires patience and the willingness to adjust. But is the Suns' point guard completely comfortable with this arrangement? “No,” Dragic said after scoring 31 points in Wednesday night’s 120-106 victory over the..." November 30
Bright Side Of The Sun "The Jazz put up a fight both early and late, but the Suns were simply the better team and that played out over the course of the full 48 minutes. The result was a 112-101 win by the Suns as Eric Bledsoe returned to the court after missing the last six games. The Suns got off to a slow start,..." November 30
CBSSports.com "Agents and executives predict this will be a very active trade season in the NBA, for obvious reasons. As the standings begin to sort themselves out, the calendar marches along and injuries mount, the usual trigger points for deals will intensify. In addition to the contenders looking to..." November 29
Arizona Republic "Qualify what the Suns have achieved beyond expectations this season all you want. Maybe those quality close losses were just losses in the end. Maybe most of their wins were against losing teams. And maybe they had a stinker at home against Sacramento. But that team that was supposed to be..." November 28
Suns G Eric Bledsoe (shin) will not play tonight vs. #Blazers.
Arizona Republic "The Miami Heat started this season putting Michael Beasley where the Suns had him at the end of last season — on the bench for entire games. Everything Beasley gets this season, except for the Suns’ first $4.7 million buyout check, will be earned. He has to earn trust, respect and playing time..." November 26
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "This could have been one of those "and-is-better" Ford commercials. Because "and" has always been better for the Miami Heat when it comes to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. So while Wade was doing his thing during Monday night's 107-92 victory over the Phoenix Suns at AmericanAirlines Arena,..." November 26
Jeff Hornacek on Eric Bledsoe's shin: "It's very stiff and with every step he takes, it hurts him." Hornacek says he might return Wednesday.
Arizona Republic "If a team is coming off two road victories and previously has taken Oklahoma City and San Antonio to the wire on the road, confidence becomes critical when visiting a team like Miami. It might not be ideal to face the two-time defending champs in the third road game in four nights, but the Suns..." November 25
Arizona Republic "There are no freebie victories in the NBA. Apparently, there barely are even freebies in a NBA victory. The Suns became the first NBA team in 36 years to win a game with one free throw made, setting franchise lows Sunday night for free throws made and attempted (three) in a 104-96 victory..." November 25
Bright Side Of The Sun "A year after the Suns made a max offer to Eric Gordon, which was quickly matched by New Orleans, the Phoenix Suns are "reportedly" planning to overpay Utah SF Gordon Hayward next summer. First of all, make what you will of a rumor like this. It's just a tweet and those are free - and don't need..." November 24
Bledsoe (shin) didn't do much at #Suns practice today in Orlando. What bothers him the most? "Walking." Haven't got to runs, cuts & jumps.
Pro Basketball Talk "When the Suns traded for Marcus Morris, pairing him with his twin brother Markieff, many scoffed at the move as a gimmick. Even though I realized getting Marcus for just a second-round pick was good value, I still laughed at the deal as overly marketing generated. Well, the joke is on..." November 23
Arizona Republic "Suns power forward Markieff Morris went from Player of the Week to funk of the week. It came to a head Friday night when he got blocked from behind by Charlotte guard Gerald Henderson when he was going up for a dunk in the second quarter. At that point, Morris had missed 16 of 17 shots over 3..." November 23
Arizona Republic "The Suns are a running team so it was appropriate that they found their stride in Charlotte. The Suns were running ahead of the bumbling Bobcats and pulling away like thoroughbreds for an easy win before they started stumbling like colts. It was a reminder of how young they are and how they had..." November 23
Hornacek on Bledsoe after arriving at the arena: "I'm assuming he's not going to play." Green gets his 7th start in 12 games. #SunsVsBobcats
Arizona Republic "Reality may be setting in on the Suns. After surprising just about everybody by winning five of their first seven games and playing competitively on the road in losses to Oklahoma City and San Antonio, the Suns lost their fourth in a row Wednesday night. This time they fell hard, 113-106, to..." November 21
DeMarcus Cousins expects to be fine to play tomorrow in Phoenix in back-to-back. Many from the #Suns side are expecting Eric Bledsoe to play
Eric Bledsoe, who is day-to-day with a bruised left shin, will not be in uniform tonight for #SunsVsKings.
Sacramento Bee "The transformation of the Kings into a defensive-minded unit will be a season-long process. One that will see them go stretches where they don’t look like much of a defensive bunch. The Kings found their defensive swagger for the final 3:34 of Tuesday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns, and..." November 20
It sounds like Eric Bledsoe is out for tonight's game against the Kings.
New York Post "After all of the years both Miles and Mason Plumlee have played basketball, they both experienced something Friday night they had never had done before: Playing against one another. “I guess so,” older brother Miles said with a smile of this being his first-ever game against Mason after the..." November 16
New York Post "When Joe Johnson’s runner dropped through the net as the buzzer sounded in overtime to give the Nets a 100-98 victory over the Suns, he had just one thing on his mind. “I couldn’t even celebrate, I was so tired,” Johnson said after scoring 13 points in 44:47. “But I was just ready to get out of..." November 16
Arizona Sports "Eric Bledsoe is already looking like the breakout player NBA prognosticators expected him to be when he joined the Phoenix Suns, and his team is off to a better-than-expected 5-3 start. The four-year combo guard is averaging 21.1 points, 7.1 assists, 1.8 steals and is shooting 51.4 percent in..." November 15
Arizona Republic "He is the foreign-born Suns point guard with a young son named Mateo and a penchant for injuries and gashes to the face. No, not Steve Nash. His son’s name is spelled Matteo. It is Goran Dragic, whose month of ankle sprains and head-on collisions continued Wednesday night when he butted..." November 15
USA Today "Charles Barkley, the most outspoken man in sports, had some very, very interesting thoughts on the N-word (as it pertains to the Matt Barnes tweet, Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito and even Paula Deen), White America and locker room banter among friends during a brilliant five minute rant on..." November 15
Oregonian "Their game was ragged, their shooting frigid and their hold on the ball slippery. Just when the Trail Blazers seem headed for a disappointing loss to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, they got a big lift from an unexpected source: Thomas Robinson. The second-year forward gave the Blazers a huge..." November 14
Goran Dragic WILL travel to Portland after his first son Mateo was born yesterday. Will get there either tonight or tomorrow morning. #Suns
NBA.com "The Indiana Pacers' Paul George and the Phoenix Suns' Markieff Morris today were named NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Mon., Nov. 4-Sun., Nov. 10. George led Indiana to the only undefeated record in the Eastern Conference on the week (4-0)...." November 11
Arizona Republic "The only teams in the NBA with better records than the 5-2 Suns are Indiana (7-0), San Antonio (6-1) and Oklahoma City (5-1). Two weeks ago, the only conversation the Suns figured to be in with those other recently elite teams would be a talk about how to compete in the NBA outside a major..." November 11
Arizona Republic "If the Suns wanted someone who blew them away with his vertical-leap test in 2011, they would have drafted Iman Shumpert. And they almost did. JaJuan Johnson was that draft’s highest hopping big man, but there is more to the job than jumping. His career (36 games) could not match his vertical..." November 10
Once again, Goran Dragic a game-time decision tonight for the #Suns
Dragic will play tonight but not start. Green starts again for the #Suns.
Dragic played in half-court scrimmages today. His ankle is improving & looks good for Sunday's game but #Suns staff will decide on game day.
Arizona Republic "There were sure to be wild ups and downs this season, with a Suns team revamped so heavily that it became the second-most inexperienced among NBA teams. Who knew that would mean there could be so much sway in one night, too? The Suns gave up the sort of overwhelming run that should make no..." November 09
Hornacek said Dragic, if good to play, would likely start moving Gerald Green back to the bench; Alex Len also gametime decision
Arizona Republic "The Suns have won the games in which they had the best chance — at home against Utah and Portland and at New Orleans with a day of rest. What is more telling about how the Suns might be underbilled — or at least competitively entertaining — is how they fared on the road this week in less..." November 07
Hornacek said Dragic will not play tonight at SA but hopes he'll be available for the next #Suns home game Friday. Bonner is out for SA.
Arizona Republic "The Suns were in the unique position of having their defense be ahead of the offense to start the season. It was a refreshing change, but it was still disconcerting that the full-throttle look had been stuck in low gears at times. The Suns floored it on Tuesday night, scoring 32 points in..." November 06
Arizona Republic "Suns point guard Goran Dragic is expected to miss the team’s next two games after he sprained the left ankle that he also had injured in the preseason. Dragic sprained the ankle while scoring on a fastbreak early in the third quarter of the Suns’ 103-96 loss Sunday night at Oklahoma City. He..." November 04
The Oklahoman "On the Thunder's first offensive possession, Russell Westbrook was back to his old ways Sunday night. Using a high ball screen, Westbrook slithered himself into the painted area with the same electric speed we've grown accustomed to seeing the last five seasons. He split the pick and roll the..."
