Game Day: Warriors (12-47) @ Suns (24-36), Sat 2/29/20

Post by Superbone » Sat Feb 29, 2020 3:50 am

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (6:00 pm PT/9:00 pm ET)
Place: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSAZ, NBALP

What do you say we try that one again, huh? Maybe try playing with energy this time and don't think you can turn it on when you need to. We're 0-2 so far on a 6 game home stand.

Go Suns!!!

Steph Curry is not back for this one; he'll return the following night. Likely he wanted no part of Baynes in his first game back.

Wiggins has actually played fairly well for them. But they're still such a mess. Draymond has been moody and getting techs to the point where he's not far from missing a game for having too many. They're still just a bunch of random G-Leaguers running around out there. Totally lost season. Quite the fall from the Steph/Klay/KD/Draymond heyday.

We should win this game big. But, then, we should have beaten the Pistons. This team doesn't really have a "should." It just is.

My understanding is that the Warriors are starting Chriss and Bender! :shock:

Cam got bounced around last night.

Took a knee to the groin and about a minute or so later, had a fairly nasty fall.
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

Yep, I was actually very happy to see him make it back into the game. And he almost single-handedly brought us back from the dead in spite of Rose and BASE going otherworldly.

73% from the field, 75% from three in the first quarter for the Suns!

Seeing Bridges effortlessly knock down threes is hardly believable considering how terrible he was just 6 weeks ago.

I know it's hyperbole, but I can't leave it alone.

Bridges hasn't been bad from 3 since November.

Saric is stepping up nicely. Booker having a quiet half overall. I hardly recognize any of these guys on the Warriors; I've watched a few of their games this year, but it's been a slog.

I wasn't able to watch this game on my League Pass because of stupid local blackout rules. So I'm watching it on a pirate stream, which just works and is free. The NBA is stupid.

December he shot 40% (11-27), January he shot 31% (12-38), this month he's 40% (16-38) prior to tonight.

He shot 31.6% in January on 38 attempts. Take away his 6-8 game against the Celtics and he shot 6-30 for the month, 20%.

He was terrible 6 weeks ago.

Guys, Dragan Bender is actually good. He has 13 points, 7 boards, 4 assists as we speak.
