I think we get torn a new backside today. And because of the fracas at the end of the last game, and the three game double-digit loss streak, it’s going to be embarrassing. I suspect book doesn’t play. Bridges will be on the court, but he will turtle. I expect Ayton to do some damage, if they can get him the ball. Paul will likely be kind of stupid chippy instead of just looking to take advantage of the court time to get his game back in order. And everyone else will shrink. Except maybe damion Lee. He seems like one of the only guys with balls.
I have a bad feeling you are right.

Ayton will guard Zion. Saric will guard Jonas.

We are going to look complete and utter tools today if we come out and get our doors blown in after making such a stink about a nothing burger at the end of Friday’s game.

I'm not sure how this is going to work, starting Saric in place of Devin Booker.

A) I fully expect Ayton to be in the bench with fouls very quickly

B) jonas will destroy saric

C) because they switch everything on defense it won’t be difficult for them to get the Dario on zion matchup they’ll destroy.

So only a single ballhandler. Seems like a gem of a strategy. Hopefully the gnat won’t be in the game when we go single ballhandler.

This is so damn stupid. You know what this sounds like to me, Hey let’s get Ayton in foul trouble.

Make them match up with you!!!! Don’t go chasing them. That’s not what good teams do.

Apparently CP took a cheap shot at Alvarado which had something to do with the scuffle between them.

Looks like Bridges is playing shooting guard.

The Suns do not block on rebounds. It's been a problem all season leading to easy baskets.

Dario hits the three. Paul pointed out to referees Saric got knocked down on the previous play.
