Despite zero first half production from birthday boy Devin Booker, the young Phoenix Suns had a 57-55 lead on the Golden State Warriors at half-time, thanks to the production from Tony Buckets and Eric Beldsoe. Wait, who the hell is Beldsoe?
Suns guard Eric Bledsoe played the first quarter of Sunday’s game with his name misspelled on the back of his jersey. He had a corrected one by the time he threw down this 2nd quarter alley-oop that had the Suns bench going crazy.
Bledsoe finished the game with 21 and Tony Buckets and his “sneaky hops” followed up his career-high 30 with a team-high 26.
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough as the Warriors pulled away late, behind 37 from KD, and gave the Suns their 3rd straight loss to the start the season.
