The Suns today recalled Reggie Bullock and Archie Goodwin from their short stay with the Bakersfield Jam.

The two second year players were nothing short of sensational in their weekend stint with the team, and helped the team split their back to back games on the road against the LA D-Fenders.

It was not only Bullocks first trip to the Jam, but also his first trip to the D-League at all, and he didn't fail to impress. Putting up double doubles in both games, Bullock was a force on the offensive side of the ball. He averaged 25.5 points, 10.5 rebound and 2 steals for the two games, with a very healthy 47.5% shooting percentage.

A brief highlight clip of his performance is shown below, taken from the first game, which the Jam lost 136-126 behind strong play from Jamaal Franklin and Ryan Kelly.

Bullock's only real struggles came from behind the three point line, where he shot just 2-8 in the first game and 4-9 in the second game, for a combined percentage of 35%. On defense, Bullock looked fine, though he struggled at times defending the rangy Franklin and Jabari Brown, both of whom scored over 20 in the first game. The defense improved in the second game, however.

Archie, in his third visit to Bakersfield this season, looked a little better than in previous showings. He also had a double-double in both games, averaging 26 points and 11 rebounds on 48.6% shooting, including 40% overall from beyond the arc.

Highlights from the second game are shown below.

In their trip to Bakersfield, Archie played at the SG position, while Bullock played at the SF position. The two seemed to have better chemistry on the floor than Archie had with T.J. Warren the last time those two were in Bakersfield together, though it should be noted that the D-Fenders are not as talented a team as the teams that Warren and Archie faced earlier in the seaon.

The two players will be available for the Suns when they take on the Grizzlies today.
