Dragan Bender was a rude host on Friday, as he welcomed the Brisbane Bullets to town by dropping 16 points, nine rebounds, four triples, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.
Bender is coming on strong in the preseason after he had been the forgotten man amongst Phoenix’s bevy of young talent. While he’ll still be facing an uphill climb to get substantial playing time, games like these (competition level acknowledged) showcase an alluring fantasy stat set that could be a difference-maker if he ever gets loose for real minutes. Bender is a solid flier for deep leaguers.
