Suns' Devin Booker: Record-setting performance in Three-Point Challenge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booker set a new record with 28 of a possible 34 points in the final round to win Saturday's JBL Three-Point Challenge.

After warming up with a score of 19 in the opening round, Booker was lights out in the finals to beat Klay Thompson and Tobias Harris. The Suns star sank 20 of 25 balls in the final, tying the record held by Craig Hodges and Jason Kapono, while his 28 points topped the previous record of 27 shared by Thompson and Steph Curry. Booker has battled some injuries this season, but he headed into the All-Star break healthy, averaging 24.2 points, 4.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 three-pointers per game -- all career highs.

Suns' Dragan Bender: Modest production in Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bender tallied six points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and four rebounds across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 107-97 loss to the Jazz.

Bender got into foul trouble, helping lead to his second straight lackluster line. The 20-year-old's production has been all over the map this season -- including in February's modest sample -- as he's posted four double-digit scoring efforts and another three single-digit tallies during the current month. Moreover, his first-unit role is far from secure, considering that former starter Marquese Chriss could be reinserted back into the starting five on any given night. Bender has seen some time as center as well, however, so he should continue to see a decent allotment of minutes irrespective of which scenario plays out.

Suns' T.J. Warren: Foul trouble cripples usage during Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Warren registered five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 FT) and one rebound across 22 minutes in Wednesday's 107-97 loss to the Jazz.

With the guard trio of Elfrid Payton, Devin Booker and Josh Jackson taking 46 shot attempts between them and Warren running into foul trouble, the forward's role was unusually reduced. The 24-year-old's shot attempts were in single digits for only the second time since the beginning of December, with both instances having come in February. Given his previous body of work, Warren should still play a prominent role in the offense for the balance of the season, although his overall usage could take at least a slight hit now that all three aforementioned players are healthy.

Suns' Elfrid Payton: Triple-doubles in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton supplied 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 assists, 11 rebounds, one steal and one block across 39 minutes in Wednesday's 107-97 loss to the Jazz.

Payton's integration into the Suns' system has been seamless, as he's now averaging 20.3 points (on 57.1 percent shooting, including 50.0 percent from three-point range), 8.7 assists and 8.3 rebounds across 35.0 minutes in the three games since his arrival. The 23-year-old had an opportunity to play alongside Devin Booker (hip) for the first time, a move that pushed Josh Jackson back to the second unit. All three guards still saw an abundance of minutes anyhow, and given Wednesday's results, it appears that Payton's first-unit role is secure for the time being.

Suns' Alex Len: Thrives in start at center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Len posted 14 points (3-7 FG, 8-10 FT), seven rebounds, four blocks and three steals across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 107-97 loss to the Jazz.

Head coach Jay Triano opted to give Len the start at center with Tyson Chandler (neck) out of action, leading to the fifth-year big man's second 14-point outing in the last four games. Len's number of shot attempts was still very modest relative to his allotment of minutes, which were his second highest of the season. The 24-year-old has shown plenty of upside in past starting opportunities, but even with a path to a significant bump in playing time seemingly cleared with the recent departure of Greg Monroe, Len had still been seeing 20 minutes or less on average since the latter's departure until Wednesday's outing.
