Ayton will be ready for the matchup against Bamba, but I hope he doesn't look past Vucevic. That guy is Orlando's best player.

Re: Game Day: Suns (4-16) @ Clippers (13-6), Wed 11/28/18

There's several plays every game where one of the forwards or guards gets a rebound and goes barreling up the court. Nobody runs with him, so he backs it out and waits for the string of dribble handoffs. Either we are coached not to run, or the guys don't give a s***. It's frustrating to watch. Jac...

Re: Suns News: Week 6 11/19-11/25

With Kokoskov it's 25 minutes or more every game no matter how you play, or it's 0 minutes every game no matter how you played last game out. There's no sense of the team being all in together and tonight we will go with the guys who are playing well.

Re: Game Day: Suns (4-16) @ Clippers (13-6), Wed 11/28/18

48-29 rebounding advantage for the Clippers. PF is a greater position of need than PG. We are so much smaller than the Clippers. They had 3 big guys at all times. We just had Ayton and Holmes; never at the same time. Tough to compete when there are constant mismatches. We ought to be able to outrun...

Re: Game Day: Pacers (12-8) @ Suns (4-15), Tues 11/27/18

I don't mind Okobo getting some time to kick some ass down in the D/G League while he grows and improves. It's a long season. I hope Melton plays down there a lot, too. But I do worry that D/G League play won't help my main concern with Melton, which is his chucking. D-League games seem to be chuck...

Re: Game Day: Suns (4-16) @ Clippers (13-6), Wed 11/28/18

Do we really have 10 steals and 5 blocks at half time?

Booker playing with purpose, Okobo picking up right where he left off, and Jackson actually rebounding tonight. All good to see.

Re: Game Day: Suns (4-16) @ Clippers (13-6), Wed 11/28/18

JJ Karma. Whenever someone has high hopes for JJ, he immediately screws something up. Looking forward to the 15th when Ariza will hopefully be gone. If we aren't going to get a point guard I would rather run JJ out there with this starting line up. Come on JJ your big guy gets the block and then run...

Re: Around the League: Week 7 11/26-12/2

At this point, I'd rather just give time to Okobo and Melton to see if they can develop into the guards we need, and then make a run at TJ McConnell over the summer. I'd rather give those 2 a shot as well. You could probably just walk at MConnell. I think they'll aim much higher as in backing the b...

Re: Suns News: Week 6 11/19-11/25

Canaan is waived! Drum roll on incoming trade? Or was this to avoid guaranteed $ and make way for Point Book and Okobo off the bench? Very curious what happens next. There's no reason to wave Canaan unless you want to bring in 2 players. We have an open roster spot from buying our Chandler, and we ...

What frustrates me is that we haven't seen Okobo since his best outing as a Sun. He gives us his best performance and then we decide he needs to go to the G League.
Very frustrating. He was starting to understand where his opportunities would come.

Re: Suns News: Week 7 11/26-12/2

SO I was looking at our 5-man lineups and found some of this interesting. * We only have 8 five-man lineups that we have used for at least 1total minutes this year. * Of those 8, all but 2 have a positive +/- * But the most common (by far with 99:30 total minutes this year) is a -30.8 points/100 po...

Re: Suns News: Week 7 11/26-12/2

I liked Juan Evans as a 2nd round gamble, but we've got 2 of those already. Rather than throw a bunch of bad PGs at the situation, I would rather develop the projects we have.
