On the surface, you’d think the Suns would have an easy game against the Washington Wizards, who are only 5-10 on the season and have the league’s second-worst defense.
But then you look again.
Bradley Beal averaged almost 40 and 10 against the Suns last year.
Thomas Bryant put up something like 40/20 games on 100% shooting. I might be slightly off, but not by much.
Ish Smith and Isaiah Thomas both might post revenge games in their old building.
Davis Bertans nearly led the league in three-point shooting last year with the Spurs.
So yeah, Ricky Rubio returns tonight. And the Suns had a couple days off to rest. And the Suns are at home. Hopefully, that’s enough to overcome outsized games from a bunch of players that feast on the Suns.
