There are many impressive things about the Phoenix Suns.
That’s why the team is number one in the West and is very close to returning to the NBA Finals for a second year.
One of the things that makes the Suns so special is how healthy they are.
Of all the teams in the league, they aren’t prone to getting hurt.
Even when someone like Chris Paul goes down, the rest of the team steps up and fills the void left.
Case in point: Mikal Bridges, who has been on a wildly impressive streak.

Bridges has played for 306 consecutive games, which is currently the longest streak in the association.
Not only is he always healthy, but he has also been very productive for the team too.
That means that Suns fans will be seeing a lot of Bridges in the weeks and months ahead as the Finals approach.
The Bridges Boost
A player like Bridges is why the Suns are doing so well this year.
Yes, they have some huge stars like Paul, Devin Booker, and Deandre Ayton.
But they have a very capable and powerful roster that is filled with other lesser-known stars who consistently do a lot of great work.
In the case of Bridges, he is averaging 14.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game.
He has a 53% field goal percentage this year and is also shooting 37% from beyond the three-point line.
He rarely plays for a full game but he does a lot when he’s on the floor.
With a streak like the one he has, there is no doubt that the Suns will turn to Bridges a lot as the postseason begins.
Like he always does, Bridges will definitely answer the call.
