Do they really have to keep showing the Clippers owner? Kept see it in all their series.

So Payne only played 4 minutes last night. Sorry but Monty should have put him in when it was obvious Paul and Booker were shooting themselves out of the game.

Sounds like you're one of the lucky few that didn't watch the game.

Payne turned his ankle in the first half and sat the rest of the game.

Haven't read the whole thread so this may be here but one interesting development from last night. Suns with Saric on the court +11 in 12 minutes. Suns with Ayton on the court, -25 in 36 minutes. Watching the game there were points where Ayton appeared to be the suns best player, and I more than once said get Ayton back in they need his athleticism. but he had by far the worst plus minus on the team, and his man, Zubac, was +28 for the Clips.

One game but interesting.

Not interesting at all. He shared the floor with a backcourt that went 10-40 from the field. That +/- had little to do with him.

only a trolling PoopHead would pretend he doesn't know that Kawhi gets and does what he wants with the Clips. if he wanted to be near his teammates to encourage and communicate with them, that's where he'd be.

and if he does eventually play, i suspect it would be a game or 2 after someone else would come back from the same injury

Booker and Paul were both only -15 and both played more minutes than Ayton did. The whole starting 5 was at least -14 but Ayton had by far the worst plus minus in that game for some reason.

Yup. He played okay but was outplayed by zubac who killed him on the boards.

If there’s one expendable stat in the NBA, it’s +/-. Your explanation and the Clippers hitting everything from outside have little to do with Ayton.

Agreed. Ayton was a team worse -25 while having the highest shooting percentage, most points and most rebounds.

Reggie Jackson scored 10 points in the 1 minute that Ayton was guarding him.
