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

Ugh. After we blew two should-have-won games and embarrassed ourselves, the defending champions who ate our lunch last time out come to town. The drawing's on the wall. Expect more sadness.

Go Suns!!!

I'm seriously contemplating not even watching after what I saw the last 2 games. I'm sure I can find something else to do.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

I am always a glutton for punishment and will watch because I think the Suns owe the fans a good game after these last two embarrassing losses. I demand they not disappoint me.

I want to see their response. Like Nodack said, they owe us a good one. I don't expect them to win but I expect them to play as a team and fight hard.

I'll watch at least some because I've been a Suns fan since day one.

I like the analogy. Dogs also like to sniff butt.

I like the analogy. Dogs also like to sniff butt. And I got my fair share the last couple games.

Amazing how much difference it makes to shoot the 3 well...

That was a super weak T. These refs are struggling tonight.

Another game where we lead at half and get our asses handed to us the 2nd half.
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

You won’t win if you rely on shooting 3s and you’re a shitty 3 point shooting team. Pass DA the ball NORMALLY for once!!! They’re lobbing it at 97 mph

What is sad? I fully expect DA to miss 2-3 games after he got tripped going to the rim there. Report will come out tomorrow

It is infuriating how much this aspect of the team game has not progressed over the year. Unacceptable. They are giving away so many possessions on entry passes to DA. Some are his fault, no doubt. But given his high shooting percentage, it really hurts to not be better at this.
