    Suns with the blowout of a team that has absolutely owned them. Coyotes come back from down a ridiculous 3 goal deficit to get a clean 2 points.

    Good night Az Sports

    Ayton had a good game. Active all around. I liked how he played tonight.

    Liked what I saw from DA. He attacked more than usual including a couple nice dunks. Though he did get worked on the defensive boards by Kanter a bit.

    He was a lot more active in this one. I loved this play by DA where he attacked the rim over 3 players and dunked it.

    That play above was definitely a moment that Ouchie and I borg’d out and texted each other simultaneously: YES!

    I liked that DA stayed in it even though things didn't go his way in the first half of the first quarter. Booker did well to get him re-engaged. I don't think it was his best effort of the season though.

    Uh... we’re 1 game back of the 2nd best record in the entire league.

    Ayton also spends more time away from the basket guarding players on the perimeter, as of a week or 2 ago he was top 5 in contesting 3pt shots in the league. Even spending more time defending the perimeter than other top rebounders he's still 6th in TRB%. I'll take that over guys like Kanter and Drummond who won't even contest most shots and just position for the rebound.

    Ayton has flaws and but rebounding certainly isn't one, even if he could stand to improve his boxing out.

    I enjoyed these three posts B2B2B. haha

    Great win! This team is hell on earth when we make our threes. I'd almost wager to say that no one beats us when we are over 40% from the 3pt stripe.

    The Jazz are playing on another planet right now. Their roster is so solid with lots of shooters.

    I'm beginning to wonder how close the Suns are to competing for a championship. If they were able to add a power forward they would be close.
