Bridges registered 24 points (8-15 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block across 41 minutes in Friday's overtime loss against the Nuggets. Bridges ended as one of three Phoenix players that surpassed the 20-point mark, and he also registered his first double-double of the campaign in the process. Bridges was coming off an eight-point performance the last time out, but he bounced back with one of his best scoring outputs of the campaign. His long-term production might be somewhere in between both games, but one thing is certain -- he should remain a reliable contributor across most formats, especially if Devin Booker (hamstring) is forced to miss a few games.
Bridges totaled 17 points (6-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-7 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during Monday's 108-104 loss to the Grizzlies. Bridges posted a strong all-around line despite the abnormal struggles at the free throw line as he's at 82.1 percent from the foul line so far this season. The 24-year-old remains on pace for a breakout season with averages of 15.3 points on 51.6 percent shooting, 5.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.6 steals per game.
Bridges and the Suns will not play the Warriors on Friday, as the game has been postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Wednesday's game against Atlanta was also postponed, and it remains to be seen whether Saturday's matchup against Indiana will go on as scheduled for the Suns.
Bridges recorded a career-high 34 points (12-18 FG, 6-8 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go with three rebounds, two assists and one block in 35 minutes Saturday in the Suns' 125-117 win over the Pacers. Through his first two seasons in the NBA, Bridges brought most of his fantasy value in the form of his output in the defensive categories, but he's taken on an expanded role offensively in his third year with the Suns. Even before Saturday's career-best effort, Bridges had already been thriving as a secondary scorer, averaging 13.1 points per game on 45.3 percent shooting from the field and 42.3 percent from three-point range. Even in shallower leagues, Bridges shouldn't be left on any waiver wire.
Bridges had seven points (1-7 FG, 1-5 3PT, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Sunday's loss to the Clippers. It was the least efficient game of the young season for Bridges, who converted just one of his five attempts from downtown but was still able to provide a pair of blocks and a season-high eight boards. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Phoenix, a stretch during which Bridges averaged 16.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game.
