Locked On Suns Friday: Discussing the Suns’ first entertaining game in two months, a loss to the Rockets

The 104-103 loss provided plenty to discuss, including Josh Jackson’s near buzzer-beater and Tyler Ulis’ strong night.

On today’s episode, we had our first competitive game in a while to break down. The Suns’ 104-103 loss to Houston came down to the final minute, in which James Harden, Josh Jackson, and Gerald Green traded buckets before Green ultimately won the game for the Rockets.

What a beautiful, perfect tanking loss.

Jackson and Tyler Ulis both continued to play well without Devin Booker and T.J. Warren, while Dragan Bender was benched in the first half and struggled with aggressiveness on offense once again.

Off the bench, young guys like Danuel House Jr. and Alec Peters got their first real shot in a while, with each playing over 20 minutes and providing a spark. It looks like Alan Williams has infused that unit with energy since returning on Monday.
