For those of you who haven’t noticed, the Phoenix Suns are 3-1 and Eric Bledsoe is the main reason.
With Goran Dragic out a couple of games with a sprained ankle Bledsoe has stepped up, he had 25 points Monday night against New Orleans and was making plays at both ends. Check out the video above. He is playing like the stud everybody wanted to trade for last season as Vinny Del Negro buried him on the bench behind Willie Green.
Bledsoe is averaging 22.5 points a game this season on 50 percent shooting and is making the Suns watchable, which we didn’t think could happen this year.
If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.
But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.
Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
We had an efficient Carmelo Anthony sighting in the preseason.
Anthony and the Knicks went up against the Wizards and ‘Melo hit 10-of-15 shots to score 21 points. He also had four rebounds and four assists.
Derrick Williams had 23 points on 11 shots to lead the Knicks in scoring, and New York won 115-104.
