2. Eric Gordon

Most Suns fans are at ease when Eric Gordon is on the court. Gordon has built a reputation of being a reliable role player in his career, and even now, he's still producing at a high level. He's shown everyone that he's reliable from anywhere on the floor as the premier sharpshooter from beyond the arc this season.

The 2016-17 Sixth Man of the Year has missed some games this season. But compared to his teammates, he's been available most of the time for the Suns. He's averaging 14.7 points this season, which makes him fourth in scoring for the team.

Not only has he been impressive in making buckets, but his efficiency from deep is outstanding. Gordon is knocking down 41.3 percent of his three-pointers, which also puts him as the fourth-best three-pointer on the team.

Gordon has started 14 games this season and has been monumental for Phoenix. The 6-foot-3 veteran guard is averaging 16.6 points and 3.4 assists while shooting 44.7 percent from deep as a starter this season. While Beal recovers from his injury, the Indiana alum has stepped up his game to make the most out of his chances.

Whenever KD or Booker struggles, head coach Frank Vogel turns to Gordon without hesitation. His production on the floor is valued now and will continue to be handy even when all three of the Suns' All-Stars are healthy.
