Re: Around the League: Week 4 11/11-11/17

Wonder what he thinks about his "timeline" waiting for other teams to suck before we could be any good.

Re: Suns News: Week 4 11/11-11/17

Apologies if this was posted elsewhere...Q tells a story about him and Nash signing their deals with Phoenix. I think I'd heard the story before about the Suns needing to re-work some numbers due to the cap but hadn't heard this.

Re: Suns News: Week 4 11/11-11/17

For some reason, I was really surprised when they said Oubre was 23 years old during the broadcast. Thought he was 25. Not a huge deal, but crazy how young some of these guys are despite being "veterans" at this point.

Re: Game Day: Hawks (4-6) @ Suns (6-4), Thurs 11/14/19

Tyler Johnson has been kind of hit or miss so far and last night was a miss. He can be pretty inconsistent over the course of a season. Tyler was a +22 last night only behind Kaminsky's +29. Next closest was Oubre with +14. Ehhh, he was 0-2 with 5 assists. Yea we were winning when he was out there,...

Re: Around the League: Week 4 11/11-11/17

Portland's desperate for a spark. They maxed out the past few years, tweaked things in the offseason and took a step back. Melo's not what they need, doubt he helps any unless he goes all in on playing the 4 spot.

Re: Game Day: Hawks (4-6) @ Suns (6-4), Thurs 11/14/19

I didn't mind Trae's nutmeg on Rubio. It was on a breakaway and necessary for him to get by Rubio (think he scored on it too). It wasn't some halfcourt playground thing when they were up by 20.

If Collins is playing, they're a much tougher team.

Re: Game Day: Hawks (4-6) @ Suns (6-4), Thurs 11/14/19

The first half was pretty sloppy and we came out flat but still led at the half I think. 2nd half was more energy and execution, just seemed like guys woke up and wanted to break the game out. Kelly responded to the Lakers game. It was against the Hawks but still great to see him care enough to real...

Re: Game Day: Hawks (4-6) @ Suns (6-4), Thurs 11/14/19

Yea no way to let them steal a win after the way we've played the past 10 games. Young is a stud but I don't know who else they have that can kill us. Jabari can score so gotta keep an eye on him. Bembry can be an annoying, high energy guy, Reddish has been struggling, Hunter shouldn't be that much ...

Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

Props to Vogel for effective use of Howard, McGee and Davis. McGee is useful when his minutes are targeted and his purpose is well-defined -- left to his own devices, he can be a clustermess.n An encouraging development is the progress of C. Johnson. This might have been a game where Ayton may have...

Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

Biggest takeaway for me is that we need Book to pick his spots and be assertive. He's a superstar and we need him hitting shots down the stretch. He and Monty have to find the balance for him being more selfish when the team needs a basket. And he needs to stop overthinking the play and make up his...

Re: Suns News: Week 4 11/11-11/17

I don't think he'll fill out and get bulkier. He's got a long, narrow frame but should be able to get stronger. He's 24 already tho so it's not like he's got much more physical development to go thru like an 18 or 19 yr old. Also not sure how much he worked out in college/UNC so maybe an NBA program...

Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

70 points in the paint did us in. A few bad possessions here and there did us in but in now way were we outplayed, outcoached, outworked. We've been in every game and even the Ls, with the exception of Miami, came down to a handful of plays. Oubre was guarding LeBron all night so the offense is what...

Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

If Oubre does anything offensively in this game, the suns win. Frustrating to lose a game they were in position to win, but damn, there are some really good things happening here. This Lakers team is a tough matchup for anyone... I really take a lot of positives away especially from Monty who had a...

Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

Great seeing Frank break out of his slump. Dario's playing well on both ends too. I feel like there were at least 3 possessions where Book could've risen up and knocked down the jumper with his eyes closed but didn't and we got worse shots off instead. The 2nd unit stalled again so Monty's been mixi...

Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

My only concern about the game is that the Lakers will be out for blood after their loss to Toronto. Both Lebron and AD played poorly in that game, and both will have a chip on the shoulder tonight. If they go at Baynes and he picks up 2 quick fouls, we're f**ked. I almost expecting the refs to get...

Re: Suns News: Week 3 11/4-11/10

Ayton is 1/3rd of the way through his suspension. Even if we just play .500 ball over the remaining suspension games, we should be 14-12 or 15-11 when he returns. Primed for a legit playoff run. With the way we’ve been playing though, 16/17 wins is very obtainable. This is a great team that seems t...
