Game Day: Hornets (18-20) @ Suns (9-31), Sun 1/6/19

Post by Superbone » Sun Jan 06, 2019 12:24 am

Time: 6:00 pm AZ (5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET)
Place: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSAZ, NBALP

Here's another team on a five game losing streak. If we don't win this one, there's a very good chance we end the home stand 0-7 against the Kings on Tuesday.

Go Suns!!!

Cody Zeller is out, so the Hornets are starting Biyombo. He’s averaging 3 points and 3 boards. Tonight is his chance to look like an All-Star.

So what do you think? 26 and 12?

Kevin Ray mustve lost his voice doing the Cowboys game yesterday because he sounds like he's dying today. Yikes.

Biyombo could be 3 for 3 already but he basically has no touch. It's no wonder centers like 2019 Gortat have a season game, Ayton doesn't apply any kind of pressure on the opposite big man even when he is close to the basket. Gotta believe he can be coached out of that. And on the other hand, he swished his first two jumpers (both ghard shots) and made his two FTs.

Nice verticality now on Kemba by Ayton (was a blatant travel not called).

Incredible travel call on Okobo after everything you can see any given game.

K Ray, are you kidding me?! Give me a break. Stay home! I thought there was something seriously wrong with my broadcast.

Come on! How many examples do the Suns need of the opposition dumping off the pass to their big man for an easy dunk. You would think they would learn after the first 50, but no!

Wow, what do you know? Suns hold the Hornets under 30 and lead at the end of the first quarter.

Yeah, sure they got 29 but I’ll take it after their string of abysmal 1st quarters.

TJ stepping up big time, we have a chance.

Wow. Not sure that was a foul on Ayton. Bad call.
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

At such a crucial time. Bummer of a way to lose.

Ayton simply looks at Walker and it’s a foul yet Batum rides TJ all the way to the rim and nothing from the refs.

Why did Kemba shoot a 3-pointer at the buzzer with a 3-point lead?
