If Ayton continues playing and improves on his interior defense from the first game he would have helped the Suns against Harrell.

Curious, has this changed anyone's "realistic" win total or ceiling for this team?
Nope. I always said I could see this team winning 50 games. :P
Pelton wrote that it only cost the Suns one game in the BPI model, which predicted them winning 38.5 to begin with.

8. Okobo is the other guy getting minutes that he may not have earned.
He has played a total of seven minutes through three games. Five of those seven minutes came in the short-handed b2b last night.
Right, and like I wrote in the OP, neither Cam nor Okobo has played many minutes. So, despite their poor overall play, it hasn't affected the team the way lots of extended minutes for bad players meant lots of bad basketball the past 5 seasons.
I’m not sure I agree that he hasn’t earned his role. He got two minutes in a blowout against Sacto, DNP-CD against Denver, and then five minutes against the Clippers on a b2b when we were extremely short handed. In other words, he’s being used like the third-stringer he is. Do you think he’s not even good enough for third string?
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

Winning against the best team w o Rubio or Ayron, the Suns are for real. Curious to see where this goes.

Clips fans would be quick to point out that they were without Paul George. But we were missing as much or more of our team, and we still had no business beating them. It's a legit win.

I didn’t get to watch the game. Can someone summarize Kaminsky’s performance for me?

Played OT in Denver the night before. Clips fans can save it.
