Over the weekend, the Suns lost two games in disappointing fashion, dropping their record to 18-41 with the trade deadline looming this Thursday.
Altogether, the losses were by a combined 47 points, marking one of the worse two-game stretches by the team all year. There were two main positives:
- Josh Jackson’s streak of 20 point games increased to four, marking the best week of his young career by far.
- Dragan Bender took advantage of heavy minutes in each game to flash a lot of the offensive tools that made him such an intriguing prospect two summers ago.
On the negative side, it mostly came down to defense and Devin Booker. Booker appears to be struggling mightily with two abdominal injuries, and the hosts discussed whether it makes sense to shut him down for the five remaining games heading into the All-Star break.
