We're playing real well on both ends I think, we're just not taking 3s so it's a closer, lower scoring game. We're shooting 55% to their 46% but everything we've scored is inside the 3pt line.

Cam was out but came back in thankfully because Elie was out in the corner play the 3 and it wasn't working. We need him spacing the floor and taking 3s. Ayton's been very effective inside, perfect 7-7 from the field. Pistons don't have an answer for him and he's had a variety of finishes around the basket. Everyone else looks pretty good, we just need to space the floor and hit some 3s.

Ayton taking it to the Pistons front court. It's nice to see that kind of mentality from him.

Book bailed us and himself out with the deep 3. Things were getting away from us towards the end of the 3rd. Can't buy a 3 and only 5 FTAs as a team. Pistons hit a couple 3s and extended their lead. I'd like to see more of Cam within the offense - cuts to the basket, coming off screens for curls or 3s.

Either way someone else has gotta step up. Dario, Elie, Carter, Mikal....someone's gotta get hot for us.

Why did no one trade for Derrick Rose?

Ayton is all over the court on defense. Looking awesome.

Why did Monty wait until there was 5 minutes left before taking out Ayton and Rubio?

Rose consistently beating Ayton on the switch...one of the few guards I’ve seen do that

With 2 minutes left, the Suns start playing defense. Cam is shooting us back in. So glad he's ok.

Rose keeps hitting shots over our bigs. Ayton, Johnson, etc. He’s making very tough shots.

True, he’s beat him to the rim a few times too though

Ugh it seems like Monty never wants to go for the tie. They should have gone to Ayton at the rim.

You can't lose to the teams like Detroit on your own court if you want to be taken seriously.

The Suns are now 11-20 at home.

Hate to say it but we didn't deserve to win and that was pretty much a must win. I think we missed Oubre but we still should've beaten then. Everything kind of felt off tonight. Bottom line is we need to take and make more 3s.

Inexplicable loss. Absolutely no excuse, this is ridiculous. This should have been a win, plain and simple. When you're fighting for a playoff spot, you can't have a loss like this.
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !
