The Phoenix Suns are still trying to find consistency in the post-Steve Nash era.

With only five returning players from a season ago, the Suns are searching for their identity and find themselves at 2-3 through five games.

"There are no easy nights for the Suns right now," legendary Suns announcer Al McCoy said on Arizona Sports 620's Doug and Wolf Friday. "As we all know, the Suns are a work in progress."

McCoy still has hope for this team and seemed encouraged by Suns' performance in their two wins.

Al McCoy joins in to discuss the Suns season so far, the importance of games early in the season, the defensive troubles for the second unit, and much more.

"We have seen them working well, as we did in the home victory and as we did in Charlotte the other night," McCoy said. "It's impressive."

Unfortunately for the Suns, those impressive moments have been few and far between. The reason, McCoy said, is the bench.

"That second unit has been the downfall both offensively and defensively," McCoy said. "The starters have come out, scored points and defended pretty darn well. It is that second unit.

"They got to tough it up."
