We should never underestimate their ability to disappoint.

Prescient.

When the other team out-works and out-executes you game after game that's pretty telling.

Ayton is going for the trip-dub; points, rebounds, and turnovers

Good start to the 3rd period. Time for Monty to bring in the G-League guys.

Baynes almost had a rebound there.

Not understanding why Williams "needs to find time for Baynes."
Why? For the playoffs ... uh, no.
And Baynes won't likely be resigned by the Suns.

What happened to Diallo?

Ayton had three blocks in the third quarter.
And no TOs.
Thank you ...

White looks like the guy I was lobbying for before the '19 draft. Though I didn't envision him taking 21 shots (and counting.)
Go Suns!

Boy was I wrong about this game so far. Suns have 33 points with 3 minutes left in the first half and they’re down by 16. Can’t hold onto the ball. Absolutely embarrassing.

At least they go on a little run to end the half with 47 points and down 10 after a Levine 30 footer.

And then up 1 with 8:30 left in the 3rd. Jeez. This team needs to learn how to turn it on from the start.

Nice comeback in the second half.
Ayton tantalized, after disastrous first half.
Rubio looks to have benefited from the All Star break, second solid game.

Saw bits of the first half and we were awful. Then the last quarter where they took care of business. It was nice to see Cam hit some shots I’m the 4th and Ayton dominate the boards (although I would love to see him just dunk it when he gets the ball under the hoop instead of finessing).

Tale of Two Halves.

Props to Ayton for turning a disastrous night into a DOMINAYTON night. Also good to see a good night from Rubio.
