    I hope Mikal Bridges is right about Booker.

    There’s another loss. 3-6 in a 9 game span is just bad.

    I never thought I’d type this: I think you’re underselling him.

    I thought he looked better in that range from the times I’ve watched but you can’t argue with the numbers. Is everyone in agreement that he shouldn’t play tomorrow?

    As I mentioned earlier, I think teams have figured out the Suns. They have no consistent inside game outside of Ayton so opponents let them shoot 3s until they go cold.

    Offensively opponents will keep driving the ball to the basket daring them to stop them which they can't. When the Suns defense collapses they give up open 3s.

    Jalen Smith might help down the road but that's a lot to put on a rookie.

    I also think monty is married to having the defender go over picks every time and teams have obviously scouted that bc now they’re tearing us apart with it over and over again.

    Yes. Put us in the pick and roll.

    also before Jokic ever got the ball, they would get the defense to switch Ayton off of Jokic. Suns never adjusted. Then would go to jokic while drawing Ayton away from Jokic.

    Yeah they probably watched tape of our game against the Pacers - the same thing happened time after time, pulling Ayton away from Sabonis.

    Suns haven't been the same since that Eastern road trip where they lost to the Pistons and Wizards. The Suns are vulnerable inside. Opponents will keep taking it to the basket until they figure out a way to stop it.

    We had EIGHT 4th quarter turnovers. And for the season we are a -23 in 41 “crunch time minutes”.

    team can’t close to save its life.

    Not the same since Langston came in the pistons game in the 2nd QTR. Caught fire Monty
    left him in ALTERED suns rotations by keeping Book on the bench. They have not been the same since.

    Lots of turning points. A consistent theme is the Suns lack of defense and the inability to finish games.

    Yeah, I'm sure that was the turning point.
