At the game. It’s Ayton solo vs the Hawks. CP3 is shot. Cam Johnson is horrific. Bridges is putrid as well and we have no bench.
And, the Hawks are 100x more physical…
This is bad…

Suns aren't playing defense, can't rebound and can't shoot. Not a lot else to say.

Interesting because statistically Bridges is our best player tonight.

If the Suns can't fix their defense, game-in and game-out, this season looks to be pointless aside from getting a new owner.

3s ain't falling and not much adjustment in off. game plan. Okogie shouldn't be stationed on the 3p line all the time. CamJ should mixed it up with more drives and midrange game like Mikal developed once his 3p touch is not there...

This team really needs a legit starting PG who can create his own shot/distribute

Chris Paul had been playing well until tonight but I do agree this is a need. There is no excuse for the Suns defense though.

This looks like a lunch hour basketball game on the Suns part.

Maybe the Suns can put Washington out there and see if he is hot... oh wait.

He’s put together a nice string but he’s been pretty bad this year. He’s been reduced to a spot up shooter.

If you can’t have Paul run your offense what good is he?

Bridges is putrid? Are you at the bar or watching the game?

The whole team has been a disappointment tonight no matter what happens at garbage time.

This is one of the worst defensive performances of the year.

The game is so ugly, I guess Monty wants his starters to soak in it's ugliness.
