The first half was one of the worst halfs of basketball I’ve ever seen from Booker. And this was maybe the worst non-injured games I can recall from Paul as a sun. Ayton’s scoring and the bench did the trick tonight.
Paul was a -14 and Payne was +14 this game. Sloppy at the end. Wayyyyy to close for comfort. 13 in a row and we’re not even playing a complete 48 minutes

I met my daughter on ASU campus and we went out for Korean BBQ so I didn't get to see the game tonight. Just finished watching a condensed version of the game. My gosh Deandre and McGee combining for 35 points/22 Rebounds is so huge. Paul/Payne combine for 32 points. The Suns had 25 assists with 5 from Shamet.

Yes, it's another game where we let an inferior team keep it close but the depth on this team this year is HUGE. Especially, when you have a night where Bridges, Cameron and Crowder didn't do much the entire game. It wasn't too long ago that is was simply a fact that if those 3 had a game like that? We had no shot at winning.

Why is that “gross”

I’ve always been taught you can learn something from anyone. Doesn’t matter if a guys got 30 years experience or he’s a first year apprentice. You have to shut down your ego and keep your ears and mind open to all ideas.

You’ll almost always find in sports it’s not the super stars who become great coaches it’s the role players. They have to understand the game in a different way. I can actually see Frank being a really good coach when his playing days are done.

Frank Kaminsky may not have the most talent but he has very good low post moves.

If Saric can somehow make it back by the playoffs, with the way Ayton, McGee, and Kaminsky have been playing, we would probably have the deepest front court certainly in the West, anyway... and just incredible depth overall. It would be a huge advantage in the playoffs.

What do you mean
TJ is a big Arizona fan. Ayton went to Arizona, Frank went to Wisconsin. Wisconsin edged Arizona (led by Frank) by the skin of their **** out of a trip to the final 4. It was a brutal defeat, probably the cruelest of the Miller era at Arizona.

Great to see the bench really starting to pop of late. Cam Payne is so huge for them. Defenses really struggle to deal with the way he plays. He is wildly unpredictable, he makes moves that seem like he is about to slash to the rim for one of his wild layups (that go in at an amazing rate) only for him to pull up and shoot a 3, or toss an alley oop, or kick it to the corner.

But it all seems to stem of his drives, if the opposition can't keep Payne out of the lane he feasts.
