    I was wondering what Chris Paul was saying after making a huge shot... "I know this place!"

    This is amazing. I would have thought there were bigger comebacks but the Suns will take it.

    There have been bigger comebacks, it's the comeback plus the margin of victory that makes it unusual.

    Nice to see us lay some history on another team for a change!

    I didn’t see the game, but just reading this and looking at the box score, it becomes clearer everyday to me that CP3 is the guy who belongs on the All-Star team to represent us this season. This team would still be middling to lost without him.

    I didn't get to see (stupid fox sports az) but lonzo looked pretty good in the highlights. It wasn't long ago that there were rumors that he was available for trade.

    it’s also amazing how much better he looks in the last 10 games compared to the way he started the season.

    yeah, Lonzo has become a pretty effective 3 and D player.

    It’s just insane how much we won the cp3 trade for this team’s needs. We haven’t had a truly excellent pg for so long I’d forgotten how good they can be.

    Anyone who compared CP3 to Rubio should be permanently banned. (All of the above)

    If his hammy’s hold up this is one of the best trades in team history.

    When Booker went out of the game late in the 3rd, the Pelicans were on the line, shooting 2, with a 5 point lead. When Devin came back into the game in the 4th quarter, the Suns had a 3 point lead. So, an 8 point turnaround. With him on the court, they then scored 12 straight points to take a 17 point lead. Booker was mostly a decoy during that stretch but he was out there.

    I thought this game was over after the third quarter. Tom Chambers thinks CP3 was saying "I own this place." so I think this is where that came from.

    Jae Crowder is a boss. He's just so good defensively, always seems to be in the right spot and doesn't shy away from any matchup. Definitely helps if he's making his shots but even when he's cold it feels like he's still a net positive.

    Hated him on other teams, love him on the Suns.
