Suns feeding Ayton and he is producing. He has 8 points and going to the free throw line.

Rubio passed that last one to Ayton off the glass.

Suns plan was to go at Zubac and then let Ayton abuse the little clips.

Ronnie Lee had his big game in 1928.

Rubio successfully guards Harrell going to the basket and the technical against Clippers.

Suns not playing well without Ayton and Rubio in the lineup. Bridges trying to pick up the slack.

We really need an athletic PF. And a better bench.

When the Suns were hitting their 3's, they had the lead.

When their 3's went cold, the Suns . . . lost the lead.

That says it all. I know injuries are involved, but it is
still all about the '3'.

Clippers lead by 5 at the half. But it smells like the
lead opening up as the game progresses.

so, is there a way for a big man to get better hands? Ayton's definitely made major progress, but his hands are infuriating. can that be something learned/practiced?

Welcome to the modern NBA. No one is winning without making 3s.

More like it's all about having players that can score , which they don't have on their bench
