Eubanks showed me something tonight. He played hard when the game appeared lost.

Maybe this will be a stepping stone for him.

The Suns need at least three consistent contributors off the bench.

Making it out 4-3 during this road trip seems like a win

I blame the coaching again.

Eubanks best quality is supposed to be his finishing around the basket, yet usually when he plays he never gets the ball.

It's hard to figure it out when the Suns don't have a regular rotation. They definitely need to strengthen their bench.

Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving are QUESTIONABLE.

Here is the Suns injury report. Eric Gordon is QUESTIONABLE.

Bol Bol is still OUT.

It's good to hear Bol Bol is in the optional morning shoot around.

Really glad to hear this too. When we acquired him I didn't care too much and thought he was more of a novelty. But seeing him do some things on the court made me realize he can do those things that only he and a select few can do, and they're impactful as well. And he's young, skilled, and I would like to see that develop in a Suns uniform as his ceiling is high and we have him on the cheap for now if he pans out.

Luka will drive the lane while mowing defenders down and throwing elbows out, live at the FT line
and cry to the refs if his hangnail got touched. All while flopping and flailing on the ground like some petulant man-child whose toy got taken away.
I hope Nurk lays him out on the floor.
It's worth the technical foul.

Meanwhiile our big 3 will get hammered with no call and some random Mavs bench player
they got from some back alley for pennies on the dollar will hit 3s at some 80%
rate that he has never done before and never will again.

I've seen this movie before.

It sounds likely the Mavericks will have their key players tonight.
