Suns' Dragan Bender quiet in Tuesday's start
Phoenix Suns forward/center Dragan Bender finished with only 6 points and 8 rebounds in 32.8 minutes of action in Tuesday's loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
Bender was making his third-straight start with Marquese Chriss sidelined by an injury, and he's averaging 6.7 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in that stretch, while shooting .304 from the field.
Accounting for Chriss' return, numberFire's models project Bender for 5.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 21.0 minutes of action against the Denver Nuggets on Friday.
