The #Phoenix Suns have had a rough start in their NBA regular season. On Saturday, they lost to the Clippers in a 42-point blowout which led to Eric Bledsoe tweeting "I don't wanna be here." They shot only 38 percent from the field, 25 percent from the three-point line, and 73.7 percent from the #Free Throw Line. A day after, Adrian Wojnarowski of NBA ESPN reported that Earl Watson and three other coaching staff members were fired.

Okur and Fraser were the player development team for the Suns. It seems like making Eric Bledsoe unhappy was the final straw for Watson to get fired. In their first three games in the NBA season they looked awful, they lost by a margin of 48 points against Portland, lost two points against the Lakers, and by 42 points against the Clippers.

Eric Bledsoe played only 24 minutes

Eric Bledsoe only played 24 minutes in their 42 point loss against the Clippers. He contributed four points, one rebound, and four assists. Bledsoe was 1-of-4 from the field, 0-of-2 from the three-point line, and 2-of-2 from the free throw line. Eric Bledsoe was clearly frustrated during the game, this resulted in him tweeting his displeasure with the Phoenix Suns.

He contributed 15 points, two rebounds, five steals, and two assists in 26 minutes. He shot 75 percent from the field, 100 percent from the three-point line and 50 percent from the free throw line. Patrick Beverly has been huge for the Clippers this season. His toughness and defensive skills have given the Clippers a big boost in both ends of the floor. The first all-defensive team awardee last season seems to be fitting very well with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Blake Griffin fills up the stat sheets

#Blake Griffin played an amazing game against the Phoenix Suns. Blake Griffin has really stepped up in being the sole franchise player of the Clippers [VIDEO]. He contributed 29 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 28 minutes.
