Suns vs. Heat: Phoenix loses to an ailing Miami team

The Suns can't take advantage of a weakened Heat team, and the Bright Side of the Sun gives their two cents on potential changes.

The Phoenix Suns could not take advantage of a Miami Heat team playing without Dwyane Wade and with a physically ill LeBron James, losing on Saturday to fall to 4-7 on the season. The Bright Side of the Sun came away with a few revelations afterwards about the team moving forward.

First and foremost, Bright Side is calling for the benching of Jared Dudley. The call makes sense, as Dudley is only averaging 8.9 points per game and isn't getting it done on defense. They even suggest his replacement — P.J. Tucker. Tucker is growing into someone the fans love to see on the floor due to his hustle.

Bright Side went further into why Tucker is a player every coach wants. They also view Goran Dragic as the future, and have come to the conclusion that the Suns have a slim margin of error every night and will have to play perfectly to win.
