Our defense tightens up with Dario tho because he's so good at helping and denying penetration. He's almost like Kurt Thomas that way where he's not a huge presence or a shotblocking threat but he's knows where to be and when.
This is what I was trying to tell INF that DA needs to learn from Dario.
Seems more likely that Jalen Smith than Ayton will be able to mimic Dario.

Nice game by Saric. He showed his basketball IQ chops.
Encouraged by increased free throws by Booker, who has a better-than-decent set of moves in the paint.
It says a good deal about the team's mentality when they didn't fold like a house of cards when they were down 31.
Laz, you changed your sig! ☺
Yup. Can't be a cranky pessimist all the time ... it angries up the blood.

The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

It’s easier to be optimistic about this team. We have suffered enough as fans. We deserve a little joy and fun.

Why? If Ayton can learn to do it AND block shots, watch out!

Sorry, friends, I don't have time to read and respond to the thread this time. But I did get to watch the game, and you know I not even mad. Sometimes you just lose. The Clippers hit tough 3s and the Suns missed open 3s. The Suns weren't perfect by any means, but overall they shot a higher %, made 8 more FT, and out rebounded the Clippers. The Suns mostly stuck to the system, and they kept worked harder and harder as the game went on. Moving on.
