Surprising Suns ready to build off bubble success

PHOENIX (AP) Coach Monty Williams could sense a few eye rolls earlier this summer when the Phoenix Suns and their extremely mediocre 26-39 record were invited to the NBA's bubble.

A few months later, the Suns are the talk of the league after winning all eight games in Florida and nearly making a run all the way to the playoffs.

"I think we've gained the respect of the league and that's huge," Williams said. "It's huge for us as an organization. It's huge for us as a team. There was some sentiment before this that we didn't belong. I think we changed that sentiment."
