Game Day: Suns (23-34) @ Jazz (36-20), Mon 2/24/20

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (6:00 pm PT/9:00 pm ET)
Place: Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City, UT
TV: FSAZ/NBALP

One of the toughest places to win in the league. Gobert will be a good test for Ayton.

Go Suns!!!

Time for Ayton to show up in the first half. Time for him to get mad... at something, anything. Just get mad and take it out on the Jazz. Like they listen to Jazz in Salt Lake anyway!

Was thinking that we were looking pretty crisp to the start the game and then Ayton picked up his 2nd foul with 8 left in the 1st. He's staying in for now.

Offensive sets have been good, defense has been solid for the most part with some good rotations.

Subs come in, doesn’t take long for things to go bad.
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

Well, they were all wide-open 3's except for one by Mitchell.

Refs are dicking us but we're really playing hard, not always smart. Okobo doesn't have it tonight but Monty's said he wants to keep Rubio's minutes down so someone's gotta play. Some real nice defensive stops, Bridges has been involved in a bunch of them. Baynes looks like he's getting back into a rhythm too. We can't stop their dribble penetration and the refs have bailed them out a bunch. Interested to see if the refs balance it out in the 2nd half.

Booker's got to quit making the dumb fouls every time he thinks he got fouled and didn't get a call.

Book's been a little off tonight Hate when he holds the ball on the wing without making a move.

Get Ayton the ball!
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

Suns playing a very nice competitive game in a tough location. Let’s see if they can do it for 48 minutes. If so, they’ll have a chance to win.

What the hell was that call against Bridges?? There was no foul there! Mitchell brings the ball around and gives some jump flop and they call a foul? The NBA really needs to stop crap like that.

We're playing well! I like our ball movement a lot. Maybe Rubio got rested up after all.

These late whistles for the Jazz are a joke but they did just bail out Book on what could've been an offensive foul.

Carter, Book, Kelly, Cam, Dario have us on a nice run. Cam, Dario and Carter with 3s to push our lead to 10.

Cam's got the best jumper in the game, there I said it. He's an assassin.
