Nice to see basketball again. Sorry you missed 3/4 the game superbone.

I liked Payne in the one game so far.

Saric looks a little more in shape. I still don’t like his game. He still seems like a slow lumbering guy that has difficulty finishing around the basket.

Booker looked like he didn’t miss a game.

Ayton looked good and even hit a 3 pointer. He got a lot of rebounds under the basket and always passed the ball out. Maybe with Gobert there that was a good idea but I would like to see him just dunk it. Then again we say that every game.

I am so pissed right now. Paid for NBA League Pass year after year and now I'm not getting the game. Of course longer than usual hold times. Stupid DTV!!!!!!!!
How odd, I kept on receiving reminders about the restart and how my League Pass will include all of the action and then some. It’s International League Pass, but sometimes they even apply me the blackout criteria without obviously been remotely close to the AZ market.
So, after an hour and a half on the phone, I finally get to see the 4th quarter!
That sucks! League Pass worked for me on both the PC and the Roku, but they played the Jazz broadcast on both the home and away streams.
I had a busy night but I was able to watch the game on LP on my PS4 but like you said, after the first minute, the Suns broadcast suddenly switched to the Jazz broadcast. Luckily, I had recorded the 4th and was able to watch the Suns broadcast for it.

JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

Ha! Always a loophole, but he's getting a tat before Orlando is done. Ayton broke the seal last night.

Also, for the Bridges crowd here are some really nice plays on offense that showcase his improvement all around. He's one of the best finishers in the league already, the 3pt hitch seems gone and the release is much quicker but his dribble drive game was really exciting to see last night.

Nice help defense here and a nice pass from Ayton

Bridges looked ready to go. I didn't even miss Oubre until the offence stagnated.
Yeah, but, isn't that exactly the point of having Oubre?
Absolutely. I didn't mean that as a knock on Oubre at all, just a compliment to Mikal.

Thanks for posting.

After the game, I honestly thought Cam was the worst Sun on the court last night because his shot was way off and he didn't look mentally engaged when shooting. Then what do you know he's got 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and the Suns are +17 with him on the court. I guess it shows how good the whole team looked last night.

Thanks for all the links and highlight videos, guys.

I agree with those who say that Saric feels out of place. I like the guy and wouldn't mind keeping him here, but I don't know that we should even really try to re-sign him since he probably isn't worth too much more to us than a minimum salary contract. It feels like our future is to play an SF at PF, such as Oubre+Bridges lineups where they are our 3/4.

Yea I didn't see much different in Saric last night from earlier in the season. Didn't look noticeably better physically, maybe a little quicker but still no lift around the basket. He's crafty in the paint with smaller defenders but struggled against size and still isn't knocking down his outside shots. If he were a consistent threat from 3, I'd be all for keeping him around. But he just feels like a zero on offense despite his IQ and ball movement. He's a "connector" like Monty said, but you gotta be able to knock down shots.

Plus, he doesn't pass when he gets under the basket with a big defender or sometimes multiple defenders on him. Guaranteed miss.

I’m hoping we can find the right PF in the offseason and bring one of the SFs (probably Oubre) off the bench.

The usual. K Ray and Eddie Johnson with the call. Tom and Tom with the pre/halftime/post game shows. All four of them back in Phoenix although you couldn't tell watching the broadcast. You finally see Johnson and Ray standing next (socially distanced) to each other and Eddie towers over him.
