Locked On Suns Tuesday: Suns send a statement with 19-point comeback victory over Trail Blazers

What a win for Phoenix in Portland, thanks to hot shooting and the Trail Blazers force-feeding Carmelo Anthony.

Well, that’s one way to pull off an important victory. After trailing 38-19 at the end of the first quarter, the Suns went on to outscore Portland the next three stanzas thanks to strong performances across the board.

Devin Booker continued to prove he’s back to his old self with another high-scoring, efficient outing while Kelly Oubre Jr. stepped up as the Suns’ 1B option behind their $158 million man.

Meanwhile, Dario Saric had another poor outing. Could we see more small-ball incoming, maybe even Mikal Bridges taking Saric’s starting spot eventually if these types of duds continue?
