Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker both go off for the Suns

It seems like every night we hear about another former Kentucky player having a big game in the NBA and tonight is no different. The Phoenix Suns may have fallen to the Denver Nuggets by the score of 120-114, but former Wildcats Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker both mad monster scoring nights.

Eric Bledsoe led all scorers in this game with 35 points on 10-23 shooting. He also had 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. Bledsoe went 11-11 from the free throw line and made four of his eight three point attempts.

This block from Eric Bledsoe would make any man afraid to shoot again.

And his finishing in the lane was impressive tonight as well.

Meanwhile, Devin Booker had no issues filling it up either. He scored the second most points of any player in this game with 30 on 11-27 shooting, to go along with 4 assists and 3 rebounds. He knocked down four threes and went 4-5 from the charity stripe.

After a bit of a flop from Jameer Nelson, Booker knocks down the mid range j.

And somehow he got this shot to fall after the contact.

Despite the two 30 point performances from our two former Cats, the Suns couldn’t keep up with the Nuggets. Mostly because Phoenix only had two players on the bench contribute in the scoring column, one of which was Brandon Knight who chipped in 11 points.

Even without the victory, still love seeing the former UK guys performing well in the NBA.

    Uh NO. they could not keep up cause the Suns do not play defense. You score 114 you should win.

    The Bledsoe “block” looked awesome and was a tremendous feat of athleticism, but it wasn’t a block. The ball had already touched the front of the rim and was bouncing away before Bledsoe got his hand on it. Take another look at the third angle.

      Hey Tony. You take a jump shot and I block it just after it leaves your hand. The ball is well below the rim and it counts as a blocked shot. Even if your jumper was going to be a brick. I don’t make the rules 😂

      Hey Thatsashame, Tony is right. The ball hit the rim first which means Bledsoe didn’t block the shot, he just spiked the rebound out of bounds.. you dont make the rules and it appears you dont know them either lol.
