I share the frustration, but remember, dunks don't always go in either.

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
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.
Yep.

When he doesn’t get the ball for long stretches, he loses rhythm and confidence. He rushes shots and misses gimmes. It’s all on Monty.

Ayton and Booker are both 5-13 from the field, that's the game right there.

This game is so frustrating. I’ve been yelling for DA to get the ball and he’s settling for the stupid ass fade-away every time now. Back them down you’re the biggest man out there!!!!!

No Oubre. Baynes was gonna get crushed - this game wasn't for him. Not to mention he's a young stud and should be able to handle that on occasion. Siakam is gonna log 42-43 tonight...

I’m not sure how to do that, but they talked about how the Suns hired a full staff on the radio the other day. They said the private firm wasn’t working so they hired their own.

They should never have let David Griffin steal Aaron Nelson away.

Did they check their resumes? Because to me it looks like these two are taking care of them out there.

I hadn’t heard where the private firm “wasn’t working.”
Did they really get fleeced and had to hire a new training staff? If so that is so Suns. I’d love to hear the details of how that all went down. God, this franchise sucks.

People were saying ankle, but it looked like a broken foot to me.

The private firm thing fell through back in the summer. They hired a regular staff before the season.

DVR decided it was tired of recording Suns games. Can’t say I blame it but regardless I didn’t see this one.

I’d say with our current play we’re probably good for 2-18 the rest of the way. Teams below us have been playing better as of late, especially the East. Obviously Warriors aren’t going to hit 26 wins but we could luck into some drastically better lottery odds.

This means almost nothing but so does the rest of the season
