Locked On Suns Wednesday: What the 2018-19 Kings can tell us about this year’s Suns

Three-point shooting, pushing the pace, and winning the turnover battle. Sounds easy, right?

We dig through the ingredients that helped the Kings break out last season and connect them to how the Suns built their roster in 2019. There are more similarities than you’d guess.

As statistical projection models spit out win totals in the high 30s for the Suns, it’s starting to feel like following the Kings’ blueprint is the best way for Phoenix to get there. That means winning the turnover battle, taking and making more threes, and playing faster.

It may sound simple, but guys like Ricky Rubio and Dario Saric are exactly the efficient types of players you target when you want to tighten up on the basics.
