CBS Sports named Brandon Knight as one of five players that have gone under-the-radar this season.
After signing a massive long-term deal in the offseason, Knight has been proving he’s worth every penny. Playing the best basketball of his career, Knight has teamed up with Eric Bledsoe to lead the Suns to, as of this writing, the fifth-best record in the vaunted Western Conference.
Knight is averaging 21.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. Knight is shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 41.3 percent from thee-point range. Knight recorded his first triple-double of his NBA career against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday with 30 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds. All these stats are career-highs for the former Cat.
Knight and Eric Bledsoe are being talked about as one of the best backcourt combo’s in the league (obviously behind Steph Curry and Klay Thompson). The Suns currently sit 4th in the Western Conference, many thanks to the two former Cats.
