Brandon Knight scored 17 points on 6-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds, two assists, one block and six turnovers in Thursday’s blowout loss to the Jazz.
The Suns lost by 34 points so we don’t want to go too heavy on any of these guys — at least for short-term issues — but Knight’s assist-to-turnover ratio here leaves a lot to be desired. He’s still working out the kinks after a long absence. Similarly, Devin Booker gets hindered by the presence of Knight, and he put up just seven points on 3-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 32 minutes. We’ve worried about Booker’s stat set holding up and we’re good with calling him a late-round producer, and he’ll be helped by the upcoming two-pack of four-game weeks.
