Locked On Suns Monday: A 1-1 back to back shows how top-heavy the injured Suns are

Great showings from Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre Jr. were offset by poor play from several different role players.

We reconvene following the completion of a hellish week for the Suns, playing five games in seven nights and losing four of them. The injuries to Ricky Rubio and Aron Baynes are hurting the Suns even as the schedule eases up.

We stick to our usual recap format but look at both games together, digging into how the bench duo of Elie Okobo and Cheick Diallo is playing so well and why players like Frank Kaminsky and Tyler Johnson continue to struggle (easier said than done to explain that!)

We close the show by highlighting the Suns’ atrocious rebounding against the Nuggets and the magic of Devin Booker despite icky offense in Minnesota.
