Man our defense in that second quarter was as bad as I’ve seen it all season.

night and day from the first quarter.

man... this will be the biggest test of our youth ever. Coming back home with all momentum on the Bucks, then coming out with a STATEMENT first quarter... only to see the Bucks totally erase and take over the lead.

And Monty didn’t insert our best defender until a minute left in the half.

Suns need to start playing scrappy defense and getting after it. Force some turnovers and friggin do something.

We are so undermanned… Bucks are SO much bigger, stronger and more physical than the Suns.
AND, the Bucks are loaded with seasoned vets…whereas we are so damn young and inexperienced.
That combination alone are probably the biggest contributors to our struggles.

Monty isn't leaving their shooters open for 3's in the corner on every possession.

I get that he didn't call a TO when people wanted but the team was folding. This is on the team and their awful defense. Monty isn't playing D for them.
