Now, the Artist Formerly Known as Zewio is just as excited to cover winning basketball as Suns fans are to enjoy watching it.

It’s time to get to know the newest member of the Phoenix Suns: Gabriel Lundberg. As reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Saturday morning, the Suns will sign guard Gabriel “Iffe” Lundberg to a two-way contract, snagging the “best international free agent available on the market” and the first Denmark-born player to earn an NBA contract. https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1502636919049576451 The deal has not…

Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker maintains a friendship and mentorship with Miami Heat sixth man Tyler Herro.

When Devin Booker came into the league, it meant the world to him when his idol Kobe Bryant offered him advice and told him to “Be Legendary.” When Tyler Herro entered the NBA, Booker taking him under his wing felt similarly special. “He reached out to me at Kentucky when I was in school,” Herro recalled. “It might have been...

Devin Booker made his return and the Phoenix Suns destroyed the Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat.

In a battle between the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and the No. 1 seed in the East Wednesday night, it wasn’t close. In a 111-90 road shellacking, the Phoenix Suns made the Miami Heat look like the team that was playing on the second night of a back-to-back, not the other way around. Despite falling short in...

Landry Shamet is rounding into form at the perfect time for the shorthanded Phoenix Suns.

Missing your two best players will force any team to rely on depth, but not all teams are capable of delivering when their roster is stretched thin. For the Phoenix Suns, the recent absences of Chris Paul and Devin Booker (not to mention Cam Johnson) have given Landry Shamet a golden opportunity to begin his redemption tour. So far, he’s...

For the latest Bourguet Breakdown, here's a look at how Deandre Ayton defends Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Just like that, Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns’ scheduled meetings with their 2021 NBA Finals foe are at an end. Following the Suns’ encouraging yet “frustrating” loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, if these two teams were to square off again, it’d be in a Finals rematch a few months down the road. That’s far from guaranteed, but...

Deandre Ayton and the shorthanded Phoenix Suns came up short against the Milwaukee Bucks in an NBA Finals rematch.

The Phoenix Suns’ second NBA Finals rematch of the 2021-22 season lost a bit of its luster without Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Cam Johnson on the court, but their absence didn’t stop it from being a phenomenal game. While the Suns came up short against the Milwaukee Bucks on the road, 132-122, the game was far closer than the...

The Phoenix Suns will be without Chris Paul, Devin Booker and now Cam Johnson as they return to Milwaukee for the first time since the NBA Finals.

Coming off Friday’s thrilling, last-second home win over the New York Knicks, the Phoenix Suns have embarked on a three-game road trip. Sunday features an early-afternoon matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks in their second NBA Finals rematch of the season. After that, the Suns head to Orlando and Miami for a back-to-back in Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday. Since yours truly will be on the road covering all of it, here are a few minor updates from Saturday’s practice. The latest on Cam Johnson We already waxed poetic about Cam Johnson’s career night, but it might already be time to go back and appreciate what an awesome performance it was considering how banged up he was the entire night. Aside…

Cam Johnson's career night and game-winning 3 are the exact reason the Phoenix Suns need to keep him.

Cam Johnson may have started his week with lemonade, but he closed it with a peach. In a career performance Friday night, Johnson provided a superhuman effort that pushed the Phoenix Suns past the visiting New York Knicks at the buzzer. Finishing with a career-high 38 points on 11-of-16 shooting, the 26-year-old sniper supplied all the offense this team could’ve...

Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker has entered COVID health and safety protocols.

It’s a good thing the Phoenix Suns have built a comfy cushion for themselves atop the NBA standings, because the injury hits just keep on coming. According to the team, Suns star Devin Booker has entered COVID health and safety protocols as of Wednesday, ruling him out for their home game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Phoenix is already missing Chris Paul for the next 6-8 weeks due to an avulsion fracture in his right thumb, as well as Frank Kaminsky (right knee stress reaction) and Dario Saric (right knee rehab from ACL tear). “We’ll figure it out, man,” JaVale McGee said at Wednesday’s shootaround. “We knew this season was gonna be crazy just ’cause of COVID alone, and injuries…

The Phoenix Suns are 1-2 without Chris Paul. Here are some observations about what we've seen from Devin Booker and the rest of the supporting cast.

Sunday’s matinee showdown with the Utah Jazz was the type of game the Phoenix Suns usually win. It was at home, where they were 26-6 entering the day. It was against a winning team, which they were a league-best 21-7 against. And it involved crunch-time, a special trigger that unlocked an NBA-best 25-3 record whenever pulled. But for the first...
