In case you missed it, Mikal Bridges scored a career-high 34 points and shot 6-of-8 from long range against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. It’s the latest of a string of impressive performances as the Suns enjoy a nice 7-3 start to the year. Bridges had been unsurprisingly solid on the defensive end so far, and he’s improving offensively. At this rate, let’s start the Most Improved Player campaign!

Anyways, some “news” to start off your work week:
