Player Notes

  • Landry Shamet and Cam Johnson chip in 11 apiece
    Landry Shamet scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting (3-of-3 triples) while Cam Johnson also put up 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting (3-of-5 3-pointers) but the Suns fell to the Nuggets 110-98 on Wednesday evening.

    Advice: Shamet and Johnson will be the primary catch-and-shoot options off the bench this season and both did their part on Wednesday evening. Shamet was perfect from distance and shot half the shots that Johnson did and did it in five fewer minutes though. Johnson, though, was able to grab two rebounds, dish out an assist, and grab a steal, while the only other category that Shamet showed up in was rebounding with three.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 11:33 pm
  • Mikal Bridges scores 16 with two triples in loss
    Mikal Bridges scored 16 points on 7-of-16 shooting (2-of-6 3-pointers) with five rebounds, one block, and one steal, but the Suns fell 110-98 to the Nuggets in Wednesday nights season opener.   

    Advice: The Suns had seven players in double figures, all scoring between 10 and 16 points, so it was truly a balanced attack on Wednesday. Unfortunately, they could have used a big scoring night from someone, especially given the fact that Devin Booker did not have it going. Bridges' 16 was a solid outing for him, and it was the type of performance that you will likely get from him on a nightly basis, hopefully with a little more defensive pop going forward.

  • DeAndre Ayton puts up pedestrian 15 and 6 in loss
    DeAndre Ayton tallied 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting (1-of-3 3-pointers) with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and two turnovers in 33 minutes as the Suns fell to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ayton had his hands full on Wednesday dealing with reigning MVP, Nikola Jokic. Jokic scored from all over the court on Wednesday getting a little revenge on Ayton after the Suns swept the Nuggets in the second round of last year's playoffs. Ayton also failed to tally a block and only grabbed six rebounds in 33 minutes, which is also low for Ayton. We will see if he can rebound against a deep Lakers frontcourt on Friday.

  • Devin Booker struggles in season-opening loss
    Devin Booker scored 12 points on 3-of-15 shooting (2-of-7 3-pointers) with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, and three turnovers as the Suns fell to the Nuggets 110-98 in Wednesday's season opener.

    Advice: Not much went Booker's way from a shooting standpoint on Wednesday, but Booker did knock down all four of his foul shots on the evening. Booker's -24 plus/minus was the worst of everyone who suited up in Phoenix on Wednesday, and the four assists with three turnovers leave some to be desired. All in all, Booker will certainly be looking to bounce back when the Suns play the Lakers on Friday from Staples Center.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Chris Paul's 15 and 10 dimes not enough Wednesday
    Chris Paul put up 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting (2-of-4 3-pointers) with 10 assists, four rebounds, two steals, one block, and three turnovers, but the Suns fell to the Nuggets 110-98 on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Suns were in control of this game for a good portion of the evening and led by as much as 16, but a big third quarter put the Nuggets ahead and they never looked back on Friday evening. Paul's double-double was rather quiet, as he posted a -23 in 34 minutes on the court. Cameron Payne came off the bench and scored 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting and was a +10 in 14 minutes.
