Phoenix Suns Player Profile: T.J. Warren is making do without shooting

His offensive value is impressive and worth a closer look. From the dawn of the “pace-and-space” (or as I like to call it, “all-everything”) era until now, much has been made about the ascension of the modern big man-- his transition from more traditional types, the skillset that scripts his dominance, and the style that merits his status as a unicorn. But we seem to have...

Warren, Ulis provide Suns punch, but not enough to top Rangers

PHOENIX -- In a season that hasn't gone well, the Orlando Magic entered Friday night with only three wins in the second of back-to-back games this season. Make it four.

The key was a good start and good finish a night after a 30-point loss...

Phoenix Suns: Ulis, buzzer dramatics accelerating the rebuilding process

Before the Phoenix Suns took on the Boston Celtics last week, I wrote about how Alan Williams was leading the charge on a revamped bench, which also included rookie point guard Tyler Ulis. It did not take long after that article was published for Ulis to break into the national press in a big way. He did it by taking the ball away after Marquese Chriss, another impressive rookie...

Phoenix Suns: The rise of Alan Williams

After finishing with the worst record in the Western Conference before the All-Star break, the Phoenix Suns have a new look in their game-by-game rotation. Some of that has to do with their only trade before the trade deadline, in which they sent P.J. Tucker to Toronto for now-free agent Jared Sullinger and two second-round draft picks.
