Phoenix Suns: Top 1-on-1 Matchups to Watch for in 2016-2017

8 of 8

Eric Bledsoe vs. Russell Westbrook

As incredible as it would have been for Westbrook to join the Suns either this season or next, watching these two dynamic guards go at it is a treat no NBA wants to miss.

Whenever these two face off, it’s like someone called the other person’s mom fat before the game. There’s no better show in Phoenix then when Bledsoe is putting it all on the court to show Westbrook he belongs in the same category.

Just look at the last time these two met up. Bledsoe finished with 28 points and 11 assists, Westbrook with 21 points and 13 assists. This is basically every time they face off.

There’s no explanation to why these two put on such a show whenever the matchup, but no one is complaining. Their best moment, maybe the OT thriller during the 2014-2015 season, where Westbrook finished with 39 points, 14 assists, and 11 rebounds, and Bledsoe compiled 28 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists, as the Suns went on the win 117-113.

As amazing as it would have been to see Russell Westbrook wear a Suns jersey within the next two seasons, giving up this rivalry is something no one wants to do.

Once, watching Shawn Marion go head-to-head against Kobe Bryant was something every NBA fan waited to see. Now, Bledsoe and Westbrook are the two guys everyone wants to witness face-off.
