Game Day: Suns (22-34) @ Bulls (19-37), Sat 2/22/20

Post by Superbone » Sat Feb 22, 2020 1:23 am

Time: 6:00 pm AZ (5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET)
Place: United Center, Chicago, IL
TV: FSAZ/NBALP

The Bulls are in a losing streak having dropped 7 straight. They are hurting right now injury-wise. Suns are finally relatively healthy but are coming off a back to back against the defending champs.

Go Suns!!!

Can't afford to lose this game.

They are very capable of losing it though.

We need this one badly...Book playing like an All Star should suffice to win tonight.

Good start, subs come in ... oof.

Ty Jerome looks overwhelmed.

They should have moved Baynes when they had the chance.

I understand Monty wants to re-integrate the guys who have been out (Saric, Baynes) but substituting early when your starters are rolling is not wise.

This isn't the Showtime Lakers where you can sub in Cooper and McAdoo seamlessly ...

You have to wonder why he started substituting so early. The bench certainly isn't a strength.

20-3 Bulls run.

Ayton started well, but must have buttered his hands during an early time out. Forking "A" ...

Not a whole lot going right so far.

Time to earn your check Monty.

Ayton has had butter fingers since UofA.

These bench guys need to be spending a lot of time in the GLeague not on an NBA floor right now.

13 turnovers by the Suns. So many, that they should be remained, "Los Empanadas" ...
