The Pulse: Phoenix Suns done without Eric Bledsoe
Every day, we at ArizonaSports.com ask our readers a question. It’s the Sanderson Ford Poll Question of the Day, and it can be found midway down the right side of our home page.
Monday, we asked you if Eric Bledsoe’s absence spelled doom for the Suns’ playoff hopes.
A total of 416 votes were submitted, and it appears there isn’t much optimism without the former Clipper sharing the backcourt with Goran Dragic.
Two-hundred and three votes, or 49 percent, went to “Yes, they need him too much,” while “No, the team is still good without him” garnered just 51 votes, or 12 percent.
As it turns out, there are more people in a “wait-and-see” mode than there are who believe the team will be just fine without its second point guard.
If the playoffs started Tuesday, the Suns’ 21-16 record would be good enough to earn them a spot in the dance. However, if their recently-concluded 1-4 road trip is any indication, life without Bledsoe may indeed be a struggle.
