NEW ORLEANS — It wasn’t as convincing as the fan base probably hoped to see from the NBA’s No. 1 seed, but the Phoenix Suns took back control of their first-round playoff series Friday night. With a 114-111 road win over the New Orleans Pelicans, the Suns regrouped from their disappointing Game 2 loss that saw Devin Booker leave with…...

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…

Here are 5 takeaways from the Phoenix Suns' big road win over the Chicago Bulls, including Devin Booker's hot start.

Despite getting their current four-game road trip off to a disappointing start, the Phoenix Suns earned a convincing win over the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference with Monday’s 127-124 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Despite what the final score indicated, it really wasn’t that close. DeMar DeRozan (38 points on 16-of-28 shooting) and Zach LaVine (32-8-6) got theirs...

JaVale McGee is proving to be one of the NBA's best value contracts with the Phoenix Suns.

Outside of rookie deals, there might not be a better value contract in the NBA right now than JaVale McGee’s $5 million salary with the Phoenix Suns. The Suns knew they were checking multiple boxes off their list when they signed him in free agency. With Dario Saric sidelined for the foreseeable future by an ACL tear, they were getting...

Deandre Ayton is quickly becoming a pick-and-roll master with the Phoenix Suns.

In Tuesday night’s overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers, Deandre Ayton’s Herculean return to action was the big headline. And why wouldn’t it be? After missing two games with a non-COVID illness, and with the Phoenix Suns still missing Devin Booker on top of Frank Kaminsky, Abdel Nader, Jalen Smith and Dario Saric, Ayton put up a season-high 28 points, 13 rebounds and 2 steals in a whopping 45 minutes. He shot 12-for-17 from the floor, played an impossibly long stint when JaVale McGee got in foul trouble and provided yet another reminder why he’s going to get paid next summer. But it wasn’t just the sheer numbers in a big road win on the second night of a…

The Phoenix Suns wouldn’t be sitting at .500 right now without Frank Kaminsky and JaVale McGee. In Tuesday’s game against a New Orleans Pelicans side missing its two best players, with a first-year head coach at the helm, the Suns found themselves trailing by as many as 20 points in the first half. That they were able to turn it...

In the NBA Finals, the only glaring weakness on the Phoenix Suns’ roster was exposed against the tall trees of the Milwaukee Bucks. While Deandre Ayton offered plenty of size and strength, once Dario Saric tore his ACL in Game 1, the Suns were hurting for more length and rebounding on the interior. Frank Kaminsky did his best, and Torrey...

Look, we get it. The Phoenix Suns just finished playing meaningful basketball less than three months ago, and no one usually gives a damn about preseason anyway. It’s just hard to care when you go from watching Chris Paul and Devin Booker in the NBA Finals to Elfrid Payton and Jalen Smith logging big minutes against the Sacramento Kings. But...
