Coro: Suns defensive issues and individual player breakdowns

If you have any free views left to use at AZCentral.com (I have five for the month!), consider spending one on this breakdown of the individual performances from your Phoenix Suns during Wednesday's preseason opener. Here's how Mr. Paul Coro described the Suns defensive effort.

Many defensive issues popped out. Their rotations in pick-and-roll defense and out of traps were lacking. They broke down after loose-ball scrambles and allowed lane penetration on the dribble. The transition defense worsened as the game went on with players sometimes getting back but just to their men and not all the way to the paint.

You'll have to decide if reading the rest of this analysis (always good) is worth using up a remaining AZCentral view.
