Landry Shamet is OUT.

Washington jr needs more playing time, when we have some shooters they need to play more. Ayton should dominate but we know he won’t, don’t even care about him anymore trade him if he’s gonna sleep walk and act pissy like he don’t wanna be here move his ass! Will be a fun watch but don’t expect a win they way we are rolling right now…

I disagree that the Warriors' recent victories prove that they're "righting the ship," any more than the Suns' losses indicate that they're in a tailspin. They're only three wins and a loss: two victories against bad teams and one close victory against an up-and-coming team (Cavaliers). And the loss was against one of the teams they had just beaten. I shrug.

What I find somewhat interesting is that like the Suns, the Warriors lost to the Magic recently. It suggests that the Magic are better than their record.
Yeah. They can be scary. I was telling my son, the Suns window is NOW! These young teams are developing some talent.

Definitely not righted but they made some decisions that have improved the team for now. They decided to send Wiseman to G League for 10 days or so to get more PT where it doesn't hurt them. ANd they decided to make Kuminga part of the rotation again. And they got Divincenzo back.

They still have major issues. A big part of the blowout over the Spurs, beyond SA is tanking, is that Klay didn't play so they started Poole and he had a huge night. Doesn't mean he will every night but it was really obvious early in that game that having someone other than Curry to worry about scoring made a huge impact.

It certainly doesn't "prove" they're righting the ship but I must have missed whoever said it did? But all things considered, and small sample size or not, I'd feel a lot better about my team's chances tonight if they'd recently been winning at a 75% clip than losing at that pace.

Teams get hot, teams go through bad spells and sometimes streaks are just a matter of fortune and schedule. I talk myself into believing we'll win every time we play but I'd never count out someone like the Warriors especially with our track record when playing shorthanded. For some reason, other teams seem to handle missing key players much better than we do. But our play against Miami, the loss notwithstanding, has me hopeful tonight.

And yes, the Magic are better than their record. They have a lot of intriguing young talent. Because of their youth you'll see big swings in their results this season but healthy they are a handful.

8pm ESPN is 830 for the rest of the the US
I’m in Texas and the game starts at 9 here. But I know Arizona has both Mountain and Pacific time zones right? I always get confused by that lol. Nevertheless, go Suns! Important game for us. Don’t wanna lose 3 in a row and we’re debuting out Originativ uniforms.
