The Suns starting backcourt combined for 24 points in Wednesday’s loss to Utah, with Booker scoring 13 points and Bledsoe chipping in 11 of his own.
Booker and Bledsoe fit together in the starting lineup much better than Brandon Knight ever did. Booker finished his night with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one trey, while Bledsoe added three boards, four assists and two threes in just 19 minutes. Bledsoe warrants consideration in the first three rounds of drafts, but we’re worried the hype is getting a little out of control on Booker. Still, performances like tonight remind owners of his upside.
