    Word is Booker will not return... thankfully.

    Let him get back to 100%.

    Without Booker that's not even an NBA team.

    Final:

    Hornets 115 - Suns 110

    It was an enjoyable game to watch until the Booker injury.

    Lots of positives to take away.

    The refs were horrible in this game. I only watched the second half but the Suns weren't getting any calls.

    On that last 3 point shot by Jackson he scores a career high 23 points.

    Ugh about as frustrating a game as there has been all year Suns blow a 21 point lead smh.

    Booker is clearly not healthy,sit him until he is 100%!!!!!

    Jackson is playing great. When he lets the game come to him he's really good but got in early foul trouble playing like a bull in a china shop. He'll learn to be more patient.

    Bender looked good. Wish I could take some of Jackson aggression and enthusiasm for the game and give it to Bender when he's agresive good things happen for him


    I don't want to see Booker until after the all star break

    Especially Warren. He seemed to be on the floor all night without the benefit of fouls called.

    Great game. Lost. Nice games from bender and jj while game was a contest and not garbage time. Blowing big lead is okay from youngsters especially without Booker shooting daggers.

    Del Curry does the play by play out here in Charlotte. Walker passed him today on most 3pts made in the history of the Hornets. When the Suns where up by 21 Curry said "If you have to come back from 21 this is the team to do it on". Anyway Suns showed us somethings good and good lose.

    Booker had 18 points and 9 assists.

    Like it or not, Booker is looking more and more like he can play PG.

    Love a close loss, with Jackson continuing to look better and better.

    Tank you very much, Suns!

    Now, rest Booker until he’s healed and let the losses continuing while the same does for the young guys’ game.

    I really hope that's not the Suns' mindset going forward.

    Should be for the rest of the season. We know what Booker can do. It expands his game some. Plus, he is the best pg on this roster and him playing pg helps develop the Jackson and Bender. He is not their long term solution at pg, but I have no problem with him playing there until they get one.

    I mostly agree. I'd like for the Suns to have Booker at SG, however, it's good to find out how good Booker can be.

    Who is to say he cannot be another Curry or Harden like player.
