Bledsoe scored 19 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes during Monday's loss to the Warriors.

He also committed six turnovers, but overall it wasn't a bad night for Bledsoe against the aggressive Golden State defense. Brandon Knight injured his ankle in the third quarter and didn't return, and if he misses any additional time Bledsoe will have to carry even more of the offensive load for the Suns.

It didn't take him long to get comfortable with his new backcourt mate, Brandon Knight, and Bledsoe's now flirted with a triple-double in both games since Knight joined the Suns. With less competition for touches following the club's moves at the trade deadline, he should remain a strong fantasy play down the stretch.
