We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully in the morning. The links to these full articles are below, take a look at the entire stories, the writers at all the other blogs are good and have some interesting information and perspective, but come back here for our take and full coverage of the team.

CBSSports.com: Nightly Grades, Suns jump the Pacers, Again-

“The Suns have topped the Pacers twice this season now, and while Indiana used a 25-11 third quarter to get back in the game, the Suns controlled it from tipoff and led throughout.”

 Dime Magazine: Worst All-Star game snubs-

“Nobody expected the Suns to be playing for a playoff spot this season, but here they are in the sixth seed because of Dragic and the injured Eric Bledsoe. Dragic is averaging a career-high 19.9 PPG, 6.1 APG, and 3.4 RPG.”

NBA.com: All-Star game eludes Dragic despite career year-

“Goran Dragic wanted to be an All-Star. Countless others wanted him in New Orleans as well. Desire wasn’t enough, apparently, not even when coupled with All-Star-worthy play. The Slovenian playmaker fell short in NBA coaches’ eyes (except Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek, who was under the league-wide restriction that prevents coaches from voting for their own players). Never mind that Dragic is averaging career highs in points (19.9), rebounds (3.4) and shooting percentage (50.0).Forget that he and LeBron James are the only players in the league to put up at least 19 points and six assists per contest while shooting at least 50 percent from the field. Dismiss the fact that he led Phoenix past last season’s win totals at this year’s halfway point.”
