Suns’ Mikal Bridges expects battle with friend and Mavs G Jalen Brunson


Phoenix Suns forward Mikal Bridges remembers cracking jokes with his friend and teammate Jalen Brunson in the locker room at Villanova moments after the pair competed like enemies on the practice floor. Bridges told reporters on Saturday that the duo had some physical practices against one another, a dynamic stemmed from intense competitiveness shared by them. The two won a pair of national titles with the Wildcats before moving onto the NBA. On Monday, they will face each other in the playoffs for the first time as the Suns host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Are you awake? Watch sports.
