Kaminsky with a pair of nice baskets from 8-10 feet here, including the foul on the second one. Suns on an 11-2 run.

When we picked Ayton last draft, there was some debate about whether Jaren Jackson Jr or Marvin Bagley would be better. Bagley and Jackson are both nice players, but I like Ayton much better than either of them. Ayton's much more of a true big man, and both of the others seem more like PFs to me. They're good, but I am very content with Ayton vs either of them.
For me the only choice was Ayton or Doncic.

The only real debate was Luka.
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

Interesting to watch Brandon Clarke out there, compared to Cam Johnson, who we took instead. I wanted Clarke, but it's too early to say which is better yet.

Kaminsky is going nuts here, with 10 points already at the end of the 1st quarter. What an absolute home run of a free agent signing he has been so far.

Worst half of the season so far. We're just off, forcing things, not playing as well defensively. Started off slow, warmed up and now we're just missing shots and turning it over. Not sharp at all. Luckily, Memphis is bricking a ton of shots otherwise we'd be down double digits instead of up 3.

Turned the game on late, but since I turned it on, every call has gone Memphis way

2nd quarter was NOT kind to the Suns. Really brutal to watch. Lots of possessions ending in bad shots that clanged off the rim. Oubre missed a lot of looks, and Rubio took and missed some long jumpers. 47-45 MEM at the half.

Stabilizing here in the 3rd with the Memphis offense looking impotent. Dario is putting his stamp on the game a bit over the last few possesions.

Much better 3rd qtr. The team woke up a bit even tho a lot of the 3s aren't falling. Better energy and defense tho. Book and Kelly had strong quarters, Cam knocked down a few shots, Bridges with 4 steals and just seems to be around the basket for putbacks and dunks. Doesn't do much within the offense or on his own but just has an incredible nose for the ball.

Baynes!
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

It’s going to cost a lot of money to keep Baynes.

Another great adjustment after halftime.

I'm really happy with how well we are playing tonight with Cam and Bridges as the forwards. That's a real skinny lineup, but they put in quality minutes and didn't get killed on the boards.

Saric is making it hard for Monty to play him with his hesitancy to shoot, despite good play in other aspects of the game.

Refs really jerking us again in the 4th. Making it closer than it should be.

Last year the Suns didn't win their 4th game until the 18th game of the season.

Somebody want to tell Tom Leander that Baynes isn't a Euro.

Unless they've moved New Zealand since I last checked.
