    Based on the talk from camp, I thought he backup PG job was Ty Jerome's to lose but Carter is making a very good impression. He may be more of a combo guard though. I think Carter will eat away at Tyler Johnson's minutes also. He plays bigger than he is.

    I think Tyler Johnson is the most likely rotation player to be traded this year and if Carter can keep this up, I won't mind a bit. Ty Jerome and Carter makes for a smaller backcourt but as 2nd unit guys, you can get away with that. We'll see what happens.

    Just starting to watch so i'm behind but really like all the interviews with Coach Williams, I have confidence listening to him for some reason which I didn't have last year.

    How many times have the T-Wolves been hit with traveling calls? That's got to be #6, at least.

    I see why the suns like owens - he needs a bunch of work in the G-league, but you can see his potential

    Wow. Frank, Cam, carter, okobo, Jerome, all looked good.

    Harper looked like one of our pg’s from last year—hero ball, turnovers. Not a fan.

    Even Jared Harper had 5 points. The Suns have plenty of players that can play point guard this season.

    I started having buffering problems with about 8 minutes left in the 4th quarter. The game was over on ESPN before the game ended on the Suns stream.

    I was wondering if others experienced a problem or this was an ISP problem on my end?

    The starters looked fine particularly Ayton, Rubio and Booker. Cam Johnson played well for a rookie as did Ty Jerome off the bench.

    Saric had 4 points on 1-5 shooting and 7 rebounds.

    Kaminsky had 14 points off the bench.

    The Suns were sloppy as expected for their preseason opener with 29 turnovers. Also they gave up a lot of easy drives to the basket.

    Diallo really disappointed me. I expected much better, but he looked almost unplayable on the offensive end - lots of turnovers, and really seemed lost.

    Did his 9 rebounds and +/- of only -1 (not bad for a bench player) in 22 minutes offset any of that?

    I agree with Proximo. Even with the rebounds and the decent +/- he definitely failed the eyeball test. Just the first preseason game though. Lots of time to improve.
