Channing Frye and Jared Dudley Fuel Suns Surge

It's not exactly a surprise, but when Jared Dudley and Channing Frye both play well the Suns are a formidable team. Not a championship team. Not even really a dangerous playoff team, but certainly a formidable opponent for the likes the Bucks, Bobcats, Kings and the occasional Hawks.

Over at SB Nation Arizona a bunch of the fellas do a weekly power ranking of the Suns roster. Needless to say, you can expect to find Steve Nash on top of the ranking until such time as he asks out of Phoenix, retires, or takes one too many blows to the head and is forced to miss some games.

Since neither of those three are likely to happen, we'll just assume that Nash will be on top for the foreseeable future.

After Nash, however, things get a bit more interesting. For the bulk of the season the number two slot has been held down by Marcin Gortat and his strings of double-doubles. This week, however, there's a new number two in town.

Check it out....although the headline and opening paragraph of this story should give you a hint.
