Mirza “Black-Hole” Teletovic scored the fourth most points per game, 12.2, for the Suns while receiving the 10th most minutes per game, 21.3. He played in 79 games and started just one game, but Teletovic’s offense prowess was essential to the bench’s productivity following the Markieff Morris trade.
Additionally, Teletovic finished with the second highest PER on the team with a 16.3 mark, trailing just Eric Bledsoe, who played in only 31 games. Often times it was frustrating to watch the Suns bench unit with Teletovic on the court, as each time the ball landed in his hands it would then be thrown up at the rim regardless of how many defenders were assigned to him.
