This is our daily feature here at SunNGun where we scavenge the internet for recent stories related to the Phoenix Suns organization and relay them to you, so we are the one-stop-shopping for all things Phoenix Suns. We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully posted for you in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories. The writers at all the other blogs are good and have some interesting information and perspective, but come back here for our take and full coverage of the team.
“The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” It’s a movie quote from The Dark Knight that has been used a lot around these parts over the last 16 months (at least by the nerdiest of us who believe everything can be summed up by a Batman quote, better known as Batmanalytics). What once was used as a way to build hope is now a statement of truth that is being used to build a bright future.”
“Eric Bledsoe is back in the starting lineup, and the Phoenix Suns are 6-2 with him since he returned to the lineup from a right knee surgery two weeks ago. They’d gone 17-16 without the combo guard, who played with Wizards point guard John Wall at the University of Kentucky. The Suns (42-29) have gotten healthier and better. The Wizards (36-34) are struggling to regain their footing now that they’ve lost five of their last eight games.”
“You can point to nearly anything Eric Bledsoe has done recently and use it as proof of how he has spurred the Suns to a 6-2 stretch since his return. Perhaps the biggest part of the 6-1 guard’s affect, however, can be found where very few guards venture on a regular basis: the glass. Bledsoe is averaging 5.6 rebounds per contest since his comeback from knee surgery.”
