Second-year forward Dragan Bender is shooting 48 percent from 3-point range over the past eight games, but Triano said he’s not inclined to move Bender into the starting lineup in an effort to get more spacing into the offense. Booker is the only Suns starter shooting better than 35 percent from 3-point range. Tyler Ulis is shooting 20 percent, T.J. Warren 11.1 percent and Marquese Chriss is 2 for 7 in the past four games. “I can’t say I haven’t thought about it,” Triano said. “But I think he’s been thriving in his role right now. I think our bench players kind of know each other and play together well. I think as a team evolves over the years a lot of that has to do with how familiar guys are with one another. Where he wants the ball, when he’s going to cut, when he’s not going to cut. We’re pretty (good) with that with our second unit. So I like the way they play together.”
