PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.

*Suns-Spurs Preview* ====================


Phoenix (3-1) at San Antonio (3-1), 8:30 p.m. EDT

With Eric Bledsoe providing a huge spark, the Phoenix Suns are off to a strong start after finishing with the Western Conference's worst record last season.

Now they'll get a chance to see just how far they've come against the defending conference champs.

The surprising Suns look for their first 4-1 start since their last playoff season four years ago as they visit the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night.

Following a 25-57 finish last season, Phoenix (3-1) was expected to be more in contention for the top spot in the 2014 draft lottery than the playoffs.

The Suns, however, continued a promising start Tuesday when they rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit to even their record on this three-game road swing with a 104-98 victory in New Orleans.

"We're starting to make a little noise, but it's only four games into the season," said Gerald Green, who had 18 points and matched a career high with six 3-pointers. "We haven't done anything yet."

They are off to their best start since winning eight of nine to open the 2009-10 season thanks in part to Bledsoe, who appears to be on his way to a breakout season.

Bledsoe, acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in a three-team trade in July, finished with 25 points on 10-of-12 shooting with five assists and three steals.

"I just took what the defense gave me," Bledsoe said. "They gave me layups all night, so I was going to take every last one of them."

Bledsoe has 51 points, 19 assists, 11 rebounds and six steals in his last two games. He's averaging team highs with 22.8 points, 7.8 assists and 2.3 steals, though he's also committed 5.5 turnovers per game.

The fourth-year guard will try to lead the Suns to their second straight win over the Spurs (3-1), though it would be only their third in the last 12 meetings.

It isn't likely to come easy against a San Antonio team that had 27 points off 23 Denver turnovers and limited the Nuggets to 16 fourth-quarter points en route to a 102-94 victory Tuesday.

Tony Parker finished with a game-high 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting and Tim Duncan had 17 with eight rebounds, eight assists and four blocks.

"I thought our defense was much better in the fourth," said coach Gregg Popovich, whose team allowed 115 points in Saturday's loss at Portland. "We held them to about 13 points until the very end when Ty Lawson went to the line. But our aggressiveness on defense picked up, which fueled our offense."

Although he missed one of the three meetings due to a triceps injury, Parker totaled 53 points on 22-of-37 shooting with 15 assists against the Suns last season.

Duncan finished with 19 points and 11 boards in the most recent meeting, but the Suns snapped a six-game losing streak to San Antonio with a 105-101 overtime win Feb. 27.

The Spurs could be without Matt Bonner after he sat out the second half Tuesday because of tightness in his left calf.

Green could get another start alongside Bledsoe with Goran Dragic doubtful because of an ankle injury.
