Halftime:

Suns 55 - Bucks 54

The sea parted for Paul's last basket.

Welp... figured this would be a dogfight and that’s exactly what it looks like.

Did Frank the tank die? Why isn't he getting any minutes over a clearly struggling Saric?

I don’t get it. And this is said as someone who never thought he’d ever want Frank on the team much less in games!

Almost feels like this game is being played in slow motion.

We screwed up not going after a decent guy with size to back up Ayton. Saric is a joke in the paint defensively and gets destroyed on both ends by anyone with size and a bit of athletic ability. At this point, maybe throw Sticks out there and see if he can't give us some quality minutes. He can't be worse than Saric, who looks like a worn down tire about to blow.

agreed. Doesn’t seem like high intensity even though it’s close and it’s two marquee teams.

yes he can. He doesn’t belong on any court in the NBA at this point. At least every third game Dario brings something solid to the table. But his consistency has fallen offa cliff lately.

yes he can. Stix looks horrific in garbage time.

frank is the only semi legit option other than Dario.

The Suns might be better off with Craig at the 5 the way Saric is playing.

Frank looked deflated against the Spurs and it's hard to blame him. On occasion he has played well.

I think I agree. But it’s more because Dario has been so bad, not because Craig is a viable center.

Yes, you guys are right. Just tired seeing Saric out there getting owned. No Sticks, especially in the midst of this crazy stretch of games. It's a brutal 7.

No, Craig is not a center. He's really more of a small forward. It's called making do with what you have.
