The Suns emerged victorious in 114-106 fashion over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday morning, January 31 with Mikal Bridges scoring 29 points.
“All of the experiences are not necessarily in the end-of-game situations, but it is when you need a bucket coming out of a timeout at home or on the road," Suns coach Monty Williams said about Bridges.
"Being ready for those moments certainly help. I think it is a combination of all of that stuff to allow our guys to build confidence. It also allows their teammates to see them in those moments. I thought guys rallied around him (Mikal Bridges) the other night when he was playing inside the pick and roll. 
"We kept going to it. He has certainly worked himself in that position where he can make those shots. Now it is just building the confidence to deal with the consequences and do it when those moments present themselves.”
