Ayton is going to have his hands full with Jokic. He really struggled in their first meeting. Let's see how he adjusts.

Go Suns!!!

Suns down by 20 in the 2nd quarter but... Ayton has 19 and 6? Alright then.

And they come out in the 3rd period and he's not getting any touches.

Took them 3 1/2 minutes to give him the ball after scoring 24 in the previous quarter.

Melton has been a disaster guarding Murray.

Why did Ayton get taken out of the game so soon into the 3rd?

I'm glad I had other plans tonight...
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton
