The Suns are looking for points on their bench

With 24 points in Game 1 and especially only 4 in the second set, the Suns bench suffered in the series against Denver. More generally, it is the supporters of Devin Booker and Kevin Durant who are struggling since the two stars have scored 59% of Phoenix’s points after two matches!

And back to the wall with two defeats, without Chris Paul, injured in the left adductor, for the next two games in addition, the troops of Monty Williams need to find solutions.

“I can do a better job of putting in more scorers and accepting the flaws that come with it, to relieve them so they don’t have to always do everything”explains the coach of the Suns for the Arizona Republic. “We will make the necessary adjustments. »

Two names come to mind when the coach talks about scorers with flaws: Terrence Ross and TJ Warren. Both players are able to put in shots and points, it’s even their main quality. The problem is that they suffer in defense.

To use them is to undress Pierre to dress Paul and that’s why they have played very, very little since the start of the playoffs. TJ Warren only walked the floor for 6 minutes, Terrence Ross was entitled to three more minutes. But being led 2-0, do the Suns still really have a choice?

“These two could play more”announces Monty Williams. “These are always difficult decisions when there is an injury, because we would like them to be on the rhythm. But we have a few days to prepare them. »
