Why did Oubre play almost the entire first quarter, coming back from a concussion?

Chieck has done more to impose his will on the game than Deandre.
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

I’m seeing a lot of one on one tonight. Where did that come from?

You get the sense that if the Spurs had Saric they'd turn him into a 20-and-10 monster somehow.

Booker (5 turnovers) and Rubio (3) are putting on a wonderful passing exhibition tonight.

That was a pretty awful first half defensively.

The Spurs are shooting 12-20 from 3 as a team. We are shooting 4-13.

Booker playing a dud on both ends. Not sure what he was thinking on that last foul.

Suns making Marcus Smart and Bryn Forbes looks like prime Steph in back to back games is not ideal.

The team looks like ass and DA seems to have reverted back. Not sure if it’s the Oubre factor or not. Also, with the all star beak coming up, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone in the three point contest requests a suns player to just stand on the court during his round... since we seem to turn teams/players into three point juggernauts. It’s laughable.

That's a victory in Eddie Johnson's book.

Im getting REALLY tired of our perimeter "defense". Its always fun to watch other players have career nights shooting on us

He's our leading scorer and is on pace for 20/10 on 71% shooting. Not bad.

He needs to take more than 7 shots.

Great D by Ayton and then Derozen slips and it's a foul on Ayton? Ridiculous.
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

I get the numbers... but his impact seems smaller. Does he have a dunk tonight? I can’t remember one.

Another great defensive possession. Aldridge falls after great defense by Ayton. Fuck these refs. They are going to cause Ayton to get in foul trouble and become tentative. REWARD GREAT DEFENSE. This is a joke!

FUCK OUBRE. You aren't a point guard. Stop trying to get crazy with crossovers and losing the ball! 7 straight possessions where they look Ayton away and NEVER get him the ball. This is a joke. I'm done for the night. That's on you, Monty. Idiot.
