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

It's going to be tough to win this one. Portland is fighting for a playoff spot while we'll be without Ayton.

Go Suns!!!

Is the over/under on Dame in the 40s?

We've been just crushed by injuries this year. On any given night it seems like 2-3 of our starters are out along with several bench guys. How does one look up stats about total missed player-games per team? I bet we're high on the list.

The full data and analysis are only available to paying members, but the thumbnail is enough to settle this bet.

Holy crap... when did Baynes morph into Arvydas Sabonis? Four of four from the arc ...
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

Baynes with 19 and 7 in the first quarter! Wow. On pace for 76 points and 28 rebounds.

Baynes has 19 of our 34 points in the 1st qtr. EJ made a good point that Baynes is back to shooting from the wing and the top of the key, as opposed to shooting from the corners when he came off the bench. Doesn't seem like anything will line up for us this season with all these guys healthy and clicking which is a shame.

I like Carter's energy again, Dario's been solid and Diallo's all effort with some nice plays on both ends.

Monty shouldn't have made Baynes sit so long when he was so hot.

What are we to make of this Baynes explosion? If he's healthy, is he capable of giving us performance more like at the start of the season? Or was the early season Baynes a fluke?

Most impressive part of this game outside of Baynes is the amount of defensive intensity and activity in my opinion - outside of the huge run portland had late in the second. Haven't seen it since the start of the season.

The Blazers made a run in the 2nd but we pushed thru and have held them off. The effort is there all around, ball is bouncing our way, shots are falling. The offense looks a lot better with ball movement, spacing, and rhythm 3s. I like Booker taking more 3s, even from 28ft as long as their in rhythm for him. Better than him dribbling around and only looking for midrange shots. Baynes hitting 12 3s obviously helps, but it's been contagious. Everyone except Okobo and Diallo have hit one and we're 17-36.
