    Ayton’s been the best player on the floor tonight, but by all means, keep ******** down his throat. Ugh

    Halftime: #Suns 46, Hornets 45
    Clunky, clunky half, but Phoenix clawed out of a 14-point deficit to take the lead
    Ayton: 12 points, 4 rebounds
    Oubre: 10 points, 6 rebounds
    Bacon: 13 points, 5 rebounds

    I was being sarcastic. Ayton is a good NBA player. Baynes is not.

    I was agreeing with your sarcasm about Baynes yet Ayton sucks so much he can't start over him

    A huge negative for Suns in first half is 10 turnovers. Booker and Rubio have 7 of them.

    Shooting free throws like fricken Josh Jackson. Who wanted AD to shoot more FT?

    That's on the coach though. Clearly Ayton is better.

    That's a coaching problem.

    Baynes bricking four 3's and nearly fouling out every game is okay, Ayton putting up 15/10 with plus defense is not. Got it. Maybe Ayton needs to be more theatric and scowl harder.

    Even the most ardent Ayton-Hater knows this (I think?)

    I am pretty happy with DA tonight. He took a bad jumper, missed his rotation twice, and missed two free throws, but outside of that he has been outstanding.

    So I am on board with the U of A group think, the issue here is Monty, not Ayton?

    You mean the joke of a GM. This clearly is not Monty's call.

    IMO, Monty is trying to protect Ayton from pressure until he gets in game shape.

    Neither. It's James Jones.
