Solar Flares 11/18: Phoenix Suns Rookies Shine, Len's "Dumbest Possible Foul"

New, comments

P.J. missed the bus.

After an up and down start to the season, consistency is the the goal as the Suns hit the road.

In case you missed it, P.J. Tucker was absent from the roster for Monday's game against the Celtics. He missed the team's bus following Sunday's loss to the Clippers. And it is something he will never, ever, ever do again.

The three headed monster that is the Phoenix backcourt is still trying to figure out how to play together. Playing time is not the issue. Losing control of the ball is.

And Eric Bledsoe has had to make sacrifices in the new system.

Phoenix's Monday night win over Boston by the numbers.

Isaiah Thomas knows how to navigate, and is doing a fantastic job getting to the free throw line since the start of the season.

That didn't take long. After combining to average 58 points in two games with the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Developmental League, rookies Tyler Ennis and T.J. Warren have been recalled by the Suns.

T.J. wants P.J. to miss more team buses.

A good read on a Western Conference foe. "How a once-proud franchise became one of the NBA's biggest disappointments."

Matt Farley, The Sports Band of Phoenix, Arizona, and "Shaq's Been Traded To The Phoenix Suns." It's not great sports music, but there's a lot of it.

Evidently Charles Barkley and DeMarcus Cousins don't get along. Will they reconcile? "Every time we see each other, there will never be words." Guess not.

A world record was recently shattered at the US Airways Center. Last week Thunder Law of the Harlem Globetrotters made an 82 foot shot. Backwards.

ELECTRICITY. Isaiah Thomas is thriving in his new role.
