Suns News: Week 19 3/2-3/8

Post by carey » Sun Mar 01, 2020 11:23 pm

Booker has been fairly mediocre the last 10 games. Not sure what's going on with him or if it's just general malaise at being on a shitty team for the 5th year in a row. Only 3 games this week. It looks like we may bring back Jordan McRae to eat up some minutes though I am not sure why.

Last Week's Games
@ Utah WIN! 131-111
vs. LAC LOSS 102-92
vs. Detroit LOSS 113-111
vs. G.S. LOSS 115-99

This Week's Games

Tuesday, March 3rd vs. Toronto 9:00 PM EST
Friday, March 6th vs. Portland 9:00 PM EST
Sunday, March 8th vs. Milwaukee 6:00 PM EST

Such a disappointing run after the All Star break. Here we were thinking that Book becoming an All Star would lifit him to the next level. It almost looks like he's checked out for the season....

Thanks for the thread, Carey!

Thanks as always for the great threads, carey. Maybe Booker's low numbers come because he's dialing it back given that we can't make the playoffs. If I were him with all the nagging injuries he's had, I wouldn't want to give it my all for no benefit in a lost season.

On the positive side, it's the first season I can remember where he hasn't missed consecutive weeks of playing time this far into the season.

crazy to think we could win every one of our remaining games and still wouldn't be a lock for the 8th seed.

Lavar is a genius at keeping his kids in the spotlight. Gotta give him that. Li Angelo was just a mediocre college player. There’s thousands of players like him that none of us have ever heard of.

LaVar is good at moving his mouth and making sounds come out of it.

Pistons may shelve Derrick Rose, and could claim Jordan McRae.
Because they have a worse record than the Suns, they would be ahead of Phoenix in ability to sign him.
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

Did he actually play at UCLA? I thought he left after that scandal in China. Apparently, he's grown another couple inches...(skeptical). I'll give him one thing though, he is a very physical SG that knows how to catch a long pass and hoist up shots.

You mean the Derrick Rose that put 31 on us a few days ago?

Devin Booker appears simply worn out:

Worn out by the All-Star break? God help him if his team ever makes the playoffs.
