The Suns currently lead 65-34. Helping the Suns defense is the Grizzlies shooting just 1/18 from three in the first half. Adding Paul to a backcourt with Booker, youd expect the offense to be good at [8th in the league](https://www.nba.com/stats/teams/advanced/?sort=OFF_RATING&dir=-1). But the Suns defense [(7th) ](https://www.nba.com/stats/teams/advanced/?sort=DEF_RATING&dir=-1)has also been outstanding with the additions of Jae Crowder and CP3. Ayton and Bridges have improved to borderline elite defensively so far this season.
