Yeah but they're as shorthanded as we've been.

Eddie Johnson was saying pregame he didn't understand teams unnecessarily resting players.

It sounded like he was talking about the Clippers especially when they were in position to move up in the standings.

Doesn't matter. When your on a 5-game losing streak, it doesn't matter who you play. Just win.
Yep, a win is a win especially when you've been as short handed as we've been. But perspective matters, this halftime blowout isn't indicative of our strength or their weakness. Thanks to player availability, it's a talent mismatch. I'll gladly take it but I won't walk away thinking we're back.

Except it's not about our strength or weakness, it's about getting a groove back so we CAN get back to our strengths. As you know, having a perfect game during the regular season is extremely rare.

Four fouls on Craig. There was no need for it.

Chris Paul is playing more like the Chris Paul we know.

Suns lead 73-43.

Okogie can't get happy with that 3-point shot.

Paul's hands are so strong when he grabs the ball.
