Locked On Suns Monday: The youth is starting to change

Guys like Danuel House Jr., Shaq Harrison and Marquese Chriss are taking big strides against coasting contenders the past few games.

On today’s episode, we quickly broke down some of the bigger takeaways from the Suns’ loss to Golden State on Sunday evening, 117-107.

In a game where the Warriors coasted through the first half before breathing fire onto the Suns’ young roster for 12 third-quarter minutes, the visiting team showed signs of progress we’ve desperately wanted to see over the last two months. Aside from Danuel House Jr.’s massive unassisted alley-oop over Nick Young, we also saw strong performances out of Shaquille Harrison, Marquese Chriss, and Dragan Bender.

Finally, an update on Josh Jackson’s performance as a primary creator, especially his ability to avoid turnovers and make positive plays. Do his signs of progress over the past two weeks help the Suns feel more comfortable taking a big man at the top of this year’s draft?
