I really like Cam and Ty already, even when they’re missing
I found them. They’re in Portland.
lol.

Man Ty and Cam look GREAT. We have some players. James Jones maybe pulled a fast one on the league
Maybe he knows what he’s doing after all.
We are due for some good fortune at some point.

I really really like Ty Jerome. (Though I have a hard time telling him apart from Tyler Johnson when both are on the floor.) Cam is having a good night, too!
I'm having the same problem. My eyes are really bad though and the streams don't help.
Go Suns!

I loved how the Blazers announcers started talking not even half way into the 4th quarter about how it’s not important for them to win preseason games but it is important for the Suns.

Great to see a win over the Blazers even without Booker/Ayton/Rubio. We’ve really struggled against this team for the last couple years.

Gotta be honest
I had my fingers crossed that Cam would hit his shots because that's the only thing ppl said he could do

For me tho he doesn't look like the one trick pony ppl were saying he is. Dribble game looks solid , his foot speed on D will need to improve yes but his quickness with the ball is better than I expected

And they both wear the farmer dude white T-shirts. The Suns need to made them wear black instead. It just looks horrible.

Wow! Cameron Johnson hits a smooth three from the top of the line for a Phoenix Suns record setting 23 made threes in a game.
Do preseason games count?
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

He looked good the other night, but tonight he stunk it up. Oh well. He's our third PG or our 5th or 6th guard, so the stakes are low.

This is unexpected, but nice 😀
Evidently, Booker, Ayton and Rubio should be out of the rotation.

For facts? Yes. 24 threes is the most ever by a Suns team in preseason or regular season.

The blazers announcers commented that the offense looked disciplined. Indeed it was. It wasnt overly complex but we did the right things.

I just liked that for a change we were getting good shooters good looks. It wasnt that one person got hot and was hitting tough shots, our bench guys were generating good looks!

I hope we run more stuff for Cam as time goes on. He was a little static in the first half as was Saric. But they eventually both got it going.
I wonder what we do about the lack of athletes in our front court other than Ayton. Dailo still looks quite raw and lost out there at times. Is Faried totally out of the question as a stop gap?

The boston trade is looking nice. Baynes is just a very sold backup big where you know what you will get each night. Had no problem with the 3 ball.
Jerome looked very settled. I was impressed.Good to get Oubre and Bridges some more time. I still prefer Oubre as a offensive spark off the bench. That bridges defense with the starts is going to be hard to pass up.

I get that they wanted to get bench guys more time but we really need some time to develop chemistry between the guys we rested, especially as one is a starting. Maybe they play them heavy minutes next game.
