Eric Gordon, interim point guard for the Suns

After two fairly complicated first matches at 3-points, compiling an ugly 4/17 in this exercise, Eric Gordon has found some color in the last two matches. The spaces offered by Kevin Durant helped him a lot.

His 7/16 total against Utah and San Antonio is already more within his standards. “He’s a high-quality shooter and he can also penetrate.”comments Kevin Durant for the Arizona Republic.

With an average of 31 minutes, the former Clippers and Rockets shooter has the second most playing time in Phoenix, behind “KD” precisely. He obviously takes advantage of the absences of Bradley Beal and Devin Booker for this. But these have another consequence on Eric Gordon: he must lead the game more.

“I’m always comfortable. In a lot of teams where I played, I evolved a little in this position of leader and that of guard, he recalls. “Even in the playoffs or in complicated circumstances and I’m here for that. Regardless of the players present or absent, I want to continue playing at a high level. »

He therefore does not seem concerned about this interim role in the lead, which he assumes rather well, until Bradley Beal and Devin Booker return. Even if Frank Vogel assures that there is not really a precise timetable.

“He and I find each other” explains Grayson Allen, the guard who accompanies him in the Suns backcourt. “No matter who plays the pick-and-roll, he finds the other on the strong or weak side. He does a great job of finding open players and rotating the ball. Many things start with him. »

For the moment…
