    Chris Paul has had a Steve Nash-like effect on this team. If they hadn’t had that rough patch right after the 5-1 start, people would be talking CP3 4 MVP like 2004.

    His offensive rebound numbers are better than many others defensive rebounds numbers.

    Not sure how many of you have auto notifications on for the Suns app, but a few years ago, when the team was getting curb stomped, it’d stop posting the game score. It was kind of embarrassing. Glad we’re on the other side of the timeline

    Did I see that stat right? First team in NBA history with back-to-back games of 35+ assists and 20+ three pointers? Where are they tonight? Can they threepeat? Looking now. They need 10 more assists and 6 more threes. Don't see it happening with the end of the bench unit.

    Devin Booker has 34 points and 4 assists. Only 1 turnover.

    Statistically sure but stats don't tell the whole story. I didn't think I would need to spell it out like that but I guess I did.

    if Ayton had taken a big step forward like Amare did that year, we’d be the best team in the league like 2004. Or at least best record.

    hopefully he keeps coming around and gets a little better. Unlocking his aggression and making it full time is all that stands between this team being a playoff contender and a title contender. The 2004 team was almost unstoppable offensively, but this team is MUCH better defensively and much much deeper.

    regardless, I’m having a blast right now watching this team. They are playing beautiful basketball.
