    Booker goes to the bench... perhaps for the night.

    I like the rookies. They look like NBA players.

    this offense in the second half looks a lot like Koko's last year with Ayton just getting the ball at the top of the key, taking him completely out of the play. there was much more pick and roll in the first half.

    Ty Jerome looking good on offense 5-6 for 10 points. He has a nice hesitation move.

    Javon Carter and Tyler Johnson could make for a really good defensive backcourt that causes opponents to get frustrated. Of course they'll be backups but I like what I see from them so far. The Suns have actual depth at guard, which is nice to see.

    Carter is really strong for his size.

    Jevon Carter playing tough defense but surprisingly good on offense with 9 points.

    Well as long as Johnson doesn't shoot it he'd be good, so far continuing his horrible shooting ways

    I kind of wish they had shorter games during the preseason. We don't need 12 minutes of this in the 4th. If they went with 10 minute quarters or playing like college with 2 20 minute halves, that would be a nice change and possibly something better for the players. They've shortened the preseason already in terms of total games but I think the length is an issue.

    Okobo in for Tyler Johnson who is scoreless.

    End of 3rd quarter. Suns lead 90-82.

    Okobo is 2-2 for four points.

    Carter is a pest on defense. He has 3 steals to go along with 9 points.

    Okobo is being very aggressive, and actually is doing a pretty decent job driving to the hole.

    He still has potential - but he plays more like a shooting guard than a point.
