Time: 7:00 pm AZ (6:00 pm PT/9:00 pm ET)
Place: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, CA

Suns got outworked last night. Came out thinking they could just cruise through the game. They couldn't keep the Kings off the glass for second chance points. Let's see how they respond tonight.

Go Suns!!!

If Ayton gets punked by the Kings frontcourt again tonight, I'm expecting the discussion we've been having about him here to become a brought up by some of the national media.

I think Buddy Heild is going to get more than 14 points tonight, so the Suns should really try to shoot better than 25% from 3.

If Book continues to be so bad at turning the ball over, this is going to be a long year. He has consistently been in the lowest bracket of SGs in the league for TO%. It is really limiting.

And if we want to be a team that shoots +40 threes a game, we damn well better make more than 25%.

Yeah. And like INF said, Book dribbling a lot is not a good offense for anyone.

To be fair, I think 3 of the TOs last night were due to fumbled catches and being out of position.

I don’t have much hope for a win. Second night of a back to back, guys still aren’t in best basketball shape (mostly Ayton), Booker and Paul with big minutes last night and the Kings seemed to be rolling. Not liking the odds.

Is Dario still out? Is his return going to happen before 2021?

ESPN is showing the point spread as PHX -3.5. Betting on the Kings looks like easy money to me.

Weird to see the official Suns pregame show calling out Ayton so much after calling him out so much last night.

I won't be able to see most of the game. Maybe I can catch the end, but I didn't think to watch the pregame. Did EJ say anything more than repeating himself from last night?

same stuff. but they had an "over/under" segment. One of the questions to TC and EJ were to say over/under on DA getting a 20 point double double. They didn't answer the question and instead repeated a lot of what they said last night.
