Re: Suns News: Week 11 3/1-3/7

I've given up trying to predict what this team is going to do. Looking forward to 2 competitive games. I think the Suns will be motivated to have a good game against both teams.

Re: Suns Record Predictions

538 projects the Suns to win 47 games, which would be an outstanding season.

If it were all about marketing, Rudy Gobert should never make the All-Star game.
Well I hear Rudy's press conference last year went viral.
I haven’t caught it yet.

They were up 8 on the Jazz fairly late in the game (late in the 3rd quarter, anyway), prior to the Jazz going on a huge run to put them away.

The Suns are the 69th team in NBA history to win back-to back games by 30+ points.
Nice.

Re: Around the League: Week 9 2/15-2/21

By the way, how freaking crazy would a Suns vs Nets finals be? Nash/Dantoni all offense/no defense vs us and the "our defense is our best offense" approach? Given our luck, for that series Nash would unretire, suit up and play, and finally win a championship playing 7SOL ball. AGAINST the Suns. Thi...

Re: Game Day: Blazers (18-11) @ Suns (19-10), Mon 2/22/21

This team is so freaking fun. It feels kind of 2004-esque in that a lot of the pieces were there before and were losing. But then 1-2 key changes occur and suddenly, boom, the team is a playoff team and a quasi-contender almost overnight. It's really fun to see everything come together and click li...

Re: Game Day: Suns (17-10) @ Pelicans (12-16), Friday, 2/19/21

I love Monty and I know he's covering for DA and trying to keep his head in the right space but to get "moments" from DA when he's on the court for 35 minutes is still kinda disappointing. And how many of these "moments" does DA need for his confidence, because Monty's been talking about that kind ...

I'd say it's turned into a should win game.

Re: Suns News: Week 9 2/15-2/21

Yeah, I didn't see anything in the article that argues he should be taking more FGA, just that he needs to either be more aggressive in his 2 point attempts, or dramatically increase his ratio of 3 point attempts to 2 point attempts. I honestly think its a long-winded and more empirically-driven way...

Re: Suns News: Week 9 2/15-2/21

This article highlights how Ayton's lack of free throw shooting (or 3 point shooting) is really hindering his effectiveness. Suggests he need to either develop a much better 3 point shot or increase his free throw shooting. My favorite quote: "Ayton is a good player, and his drop in points and usage...

Blake asked out of Detroit. I know its petty, but I would love it if the Suns made it seem like we were interested to dry out the market for Griffin, and then back out at the last minute before the trade deadline and pursue a different player. Yeah, then let's trade with BKN for DeAndre Jordan. Reu...

Re: Suns News: Week 8 2/8-2/14

Really interesting metric about points added and defensive points saved. Highlights how helpful Kaminski and Bridges have been so far. Booker's placement is interesting.

Re: EARLY START!!! Game Day: 76ers (18-8) @ Suns (15-9), Sat 2/13/21

Do anyone have a clip of the play where Simmons and Embiid both flip in the play immediately after Ayton potentially flopped?
