Rubio and Ayton have no chemistry.

I've seen blind and deaf kids play better defense than the Suns are in this game.

Ayton looks useless on offense. Sets up too high, holds the ball too long. Geezus....
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

Defensively the suns couldn't stop anything.

Oubre 3/12 shooting that half. Rubio 1/5.

Saric, with 7 pts in 10 minutes, is the second leading scorer for the Suns.
While outmatched athletically, his hustle and court smarts have come in handy.

Ayton had a few opportunities to be aggressive and was soft af each time.

Since he can’t seem to do anything right I thought maybe he did that wrong too. The constant bitching about Ayton’s play(not just you) on this site is getting exhausting.

His lack of aggressiveness is getting exhausting.
Even Ann Meyers Drysdale has commented on that ...

Settle down. I’ve been plenty complimentary of Ayton this season. He was posting up a guy 6 inches shorter and passed out to Javon Carter for a covered, end of shot clock 3. It was soft.

Our bench is not good enough to go to an all-subs lineup. Need some creation out there.

You kind of have to give Saric, Baynes and Ayton a pass tonight because they haven't played in a couple of weeks, and Toronto wasn't a great team to be going up against tonight.

Ayton brings us to within 7. Get Booker back in and see if we can pull this off.

DA’s been much more aggressive in the 2nd half.

Agree. Both he and Rubio woke up after uneven first half performances.

We're battling but the Raps are keeping us at arm's distance. Ibaka banked a 3 that pushed the lead to 12 with 4 left.

Monty made a big mistake when he took Carter out. He set the tone out there tonight and they got passive again defensively when he came out.
