Eric Bledsoe Looks Like Elite Point Guard Against Portland Trail Blazers

Eric Bledsoe showed me something special in the latest win against the Portland Trail Blazers. He notched 22 points, seven rebounds, and six assists in an all around impressive performance.

He looked good playing alongside Goran Dragic, which was a question coming into the season. Dragic had an impressive game as well after an even more impressive offseason playing in Europe.

The Suns are a team that many believe are tanking this season to get high draft picks and after the Marcin Gortat trade that is pretty hard to debate. Their fans seem to have to inspiring guards to watch though and we will see if they can scratch and claw their way to thirty wins. That would be overachieving for this squad, and I’m betting they land more along the lines of twenty-fives wins or so. If they keep Dragic, then I retract that, but it is my belief they will trade Dragic for the best offer between now and February. It might be a long season Suns’ fans, but just keep your eye on Bledsoe and think about a brighter future. The roster at present could not get much worse, but at least Bledsoe is not on the trade block the way Dragic is.
