Wizards are playing good defense. The Suns are not.

I'm not liking the way the Suns are playing. The Wizards extend their defense and the Suns don't make them pay for it.

Suns are content to shoot outside which is a losing formula.

So much talk about if Mikal just had the opportunity, he could be a 20 ppg scorer.

We’ve had a RASH of injuries to each of our top 3 of 4 players. Opportunity galore to show that this season.

Especially with Devin and DA in and out of the lineup the last 7 games.

In that stretch, he’s shooting an absolutely pathetic 35%, averaging 17.8 ppg and 2 assists. And only reason he’s averaging that much is because he’s shootings a ton, relative to what he usually does.

Paul may be showing some fatigue playing in the second of back-to-back games.

He is 0-5 but does have 5 assists.

Some of you guys wouldn’t trade Bridges for Siakam… I just don’t get it. His defense isn’t even that good this season.

Right now the Suns are looking like the team that lost 5 games in a row.

Suns 18 points in the paint in the 1st

4 points in the paint in the second

Why the F does this team just go away from stuff when it’s working

Ayton started hot and has faded.

Mikal keeps proving why he can’t be depended on as a legit scoring option.

CP3 looks older than dirt:

And we’re getting whooped by a team that’s lost 10 games in a row.

With every passing game, we cement our status as a 1 trick pony with Booker.

If Siakam is actually available and Bridges and picks and guys that aren’t even playing is all we need to make that deal, the FO are idiots not to do it. It’s a move that not only makes us better today, but continues to do so for the next four years. Also sells high on Bridges. This is all he is.

Suns are giving up offensive rebounds which leads to second chance points.
