Cameron Payne and Dario Šarić led the Suns' bench unit in Thursday's win over the Pacers with 21 and 20 minutes respectively.
It was expected that Šarić would be a key part of the rotation for the Suns and Thursday was no different as he had 16 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and three turnovers. If he continues at his current pace, Šarić should finish somewhere around the top-75. The bigger surprise off the bench for the Suns has been Payne, who was signed just before the league resumption. Payne poured in 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, three trifectas and two turnovers. He has seen at least 18 minutes in each of the Suns' first three contests and can be expected to be one of the first guards off the bench moving forward.
