Locked On Suns Thursday: Suns’ youngsters look more competitive against Clippers

It actually took all the way until the fourth quarter of the game to get out of hand on Thursday at home against the Clippers, thanks to strong performances by Shaq Harrison and Tyler Ulis.

On today’s episode, we recapped the Suns’ 111-99 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, in which strong performances at the guard spot helped make it a more competitive and entertaining game than we’ve become used to.

Before that, we started the show with another update on the tank standings after another Grizzlies victory last night, which puts the Suns three losses ahead of both Memphis and Atlanta for the top lottery spot and a guaranteed top-three pick.

Tyler Ulis and Shaquille Harrison continue their strong play, and though it hasn’t been enough to lift the Suns without their two best scorers, it may have earned them consideration for a roster spot next season.

Josh Jackson continues to earn more ball-handling responsibility for the Suns this year, though his jump shot continues to be a concern, especially based on the awkward new catch-and-shoot form he’s shown recently. Does his development change how the Suns should build the roster going forward?
