Suns-Clippers Preview By BRETT HUSTON Posted Dec 29 2013 6:16PM The presence of Chris Paul made the talented Eric Bledsoe expendable in the Clippers' backcourt, though a deal to ship him out of Los Angeles wasn't without its obstacles. The Phoenix Suns are certainly glad it didn't fall apart. The Suns have been the NBA's biggest surprise thus far largely thanks to Bledsoe, who returns to Staples Center to face his former team for the first time Monday night in a showdown between the Pacific Division's top two teams. Bledsoe went to the Clippers in a 2010 draft-day trade after being taken by Oklahoma City, and....

One hopes Dudley will pull out a great game against his old team.

Looking forward to seeing Bled. I wish he were still on our team, but I'm glad he is having a great year so far with the Suns. I hope he does well against us, but not enough to get a win, lol. CP needs to dominate his former student and do the usual CP stuff. And Dudley, would you please find your stroke and get some points against your old team, please?

Not gonna have high hope, but hopefully his knee is feeling good this game. As long as he gets more than one basket & one rebound, it would be nice, lol.

Dudley's knee is not the reason why he sucks. Even he says he is at least 85 percent and doc doesn't know why he is playing badly. He's just not a good player.

Man i miss Bled, Collison's just atrocious. Still remember the 10' playoffs where he was the only player the Spurs couldn't defend.

Eric Bledsoe was my favorite Clipper and I was sad we traded him, but I knew he had to flourish somewhere else. With that said I hope we demolish the Suns!

Collison plays better without Jamal. Both those guys need the ball to be effective.

I am thinking EBled is gonna try and prove a point tonight. It's gonna be his "I have my own team now, check me out" type game. I, personally, am a little worried. Then another part of me thinks that we will come out strong and put them to bed early.

IDK, I am predicting a blow out either way, I just hope its in our favor

I agree that EBled is going to come out looking to impress his old team, but you have to remember that CP3 has been taking these young-talented PGs to school recently. Wall, Lawson, Curry, and Lillard. I predict CP3 continues to prove why he's still the top point guard in the NBA.

The shouldn't we trade one? Bledsoe is definitely ball dominant and he played just fine with Crawford.

His individual numbers are pretty good recently, but Collison isn't playing like a PG. As a PG, you direct plays and make the second unit better. From what I see from collison, it's mostly dribble down the court, pick n roll or whatever called play goes unsuccessful, then give the ball to Jamal.

Bled may try but we have to remember he probably isn't holding a huge grudge like our other Eric probably does. Ebled got what he wanted, to be a starter. He doesn't have to be 2nd string anymore.

That said,I can't even guess how this will go. What I do know is we may wake up tomorrow with a nice cushion as we leave 2013 in 1st,or,we could barely be in first going into 2014. Not that it makes a whole heck of a lot of any difference at this point in the season.

Na i would say DC is the best performing bench player since JC been a starter

ebled is a definite talent will be fun to watch him go against CP tonight

Clippers -7.5....hmmm This should be a very good game between 2 teams that are close offensively with the Clippers are a tad better on defense. Both teams should score over a 100 points. Either way, hopefully we score more then them.

I don't think anyone expected PHX to be 18-11 at this point.

Not even PHX did. Too bad they won't make the playoffs.

I can see Twolves leap frogging and getting into the playoffs.

But def glad to see Ebled be successful.

This is one of those games where I wish EBled has his best game ever but also hope he loses. Nice to see him back in Staples even if it means he has to guard CP.

I wouldn't count the Suns out. They are a very good team. Bledsoe and Dragic are low level all stars. Frye is a decent SF(what Dudley should have been for us). Plumlee is a decent center. The Morris brothers are actually good role players. Gerald Green is a solid role player.

They actually have more consistent/better role players than we do.

The Wolves have a fairly weak bench and they have an iffy frontcourt defensively(Love needs someone like DJ to play with him, Pek isn't a defensive anchor). Brewer is a very weak starter that can't shoot and Rubio can't shoot either which also leads to serious problems offensively.

I'm going to this game, and I think it is going to be very bittersweet seeing Bledsoe on another team. More bitter than sweet. I really miss having him on the team. It sucks that he isn't "our" guy anymore.

Expectations aside, I wouldn't bet on them (and I won't) not making the PO's, they're much better then you think.

The entire west Conference is stacked. IMO, all the teams other than Lakers / Jazz have enough talent to make playoffs. If you put the Jazz or Kings in the East, I think they'd actually be the 4th seed lol.

Horrid start- just like that, 9-zip Suns. One of the teams need to wake up.
