If we can keep this up and add to our core of Booker/Ayton/Carter, we will be unstoppable next year.

If Ayton just learns to use his body, learns to be agressive...

I didn’t watch until the 4th quarter- I am actually glad I just caught the end- seemed like a frustrating game, but at least another satisfying win. I can’t believe the team is 5-0 in the bubble!

The suns five game win streak isn’t a headline on ESPN or NBA.com. I know they’re on the outside looking in of the playoff race, but 5-0 seems like a story.

Feel like they won’t show respect until 8-0. Still a long way there but they will show respect one day. Believe that.

The Sunny video makes me smile every time, WW. I’ve been enjoying it as part of the ritual of winning.
I know it’s early but it wouldn’t surprise me if I end up posting it 45-50 times next season. 8-)

It would surprise me if we get a full 82-game season.

Maybe I should have started the "upgrade from Jevon Carter to Shaq Harrison" talk sooner; clearly I gave him some motivation.
Thanks, INF. :D
Tomorrow I'll post my top 10 Ayton trade scenarios, see if that works.

Javon MFing Carter. I have to give him credit ‘Bone. Came up huge on a night where we really needed someone to step up.

I don’t know how Ayton played like ass and ended up with 18 and 10. If he ever grew a pair he’d average 25 and 15 and be an all time great. Such a frustrating player to watch.

5-0 without Kelly playing some of the best ball in 10 years. Just saying.

Someone always seems to step up. This wasn’t pretty at all but, 5-0 unbelievable!

They were terrible for how long with Devin Booker playing? Just saying.

I just realized that Booker had 35 points on 0-7 from three and only 5 made free throws. That's really unusual these days.

Yes, on both counts. Carter was huge and Ayton was hugely frustrating. First play of the 2nd half I was absolutely screaming at the TV when he went up soft and missed or had his layin partially blocked. EJ is constantly saying he needs to throw it down hard so people will get their hands and fingers out of there but he refuses unless nobody is at the basket.

Wow, I had no idea he had that many. Sure didn't feel like it.

Ayton is frustrating because he's paradoxically athletic but not explosive and has a soft touch but bad hands.

Ayton is a puzzy around the basket. That is frustrating.
