Game Day: Suns (6-2) @ Pistons (1-7), Fri 1/8/21

Post by Superbone » Thu Jan 07, 2021 11:35 pm

Time: 5:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, MI
TV: FSAZ/NBALP

This is one we should win. (Knock on wood.) Pistons off to a slow start. Having injury issues. Don't toy with them. Take them out early.

Go Suns!!!

lets hope the suns dont forget that their mid season hiccup mid last season to the pistons and gsw cost them a playoff spot.
I hope they pump them and J SMITH is finally able to get some playing time.

Pistons do have size after they signed every pf/c on the market. If ayton gets in foul trouble thats their only window, or if rose is somehow able to off and we dont adjust.

That's all coded language for COVID, so I think it's safe to assume he's tested positive or been in contact with someone who's tested positive.

He’s coming off an ankle injury. He didn’t play on Wednesday.

Yea just can't see them matching up anywhere else. Would love an early blowout to start the trip.

I'm not too concerned with DA getting into foul trouble. Saric and Payne can hold down the paint when he's out. I'd like to see him aggressive and taking some risks against the Piston's bigs.

Haha, Payne the ultimate Point Center
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Kellan pointed out Devin is shooting 63% in Detroit. He grew up in Grand Rapids, so I guess it is kind of his home gym. When I went to the game there two season ago, there were dozens of family/friends at the game.

Was Questionable
Now upgraded to Probable and I think I just read this is the first time he's actually playing the Suns. I guess would have been hurt or in the G-League when he went to Memphis.

Some of us have seen his box scores looking solid but I haven't watched him play, don't think many have so will be interesting to see this maturing Josh that Dwayne Casey really likes

We "should" beat this Detroit team. I have faith in our guys this year to take care of business in games like this. Hoping for our swingmen to hit a ton of 3s and put it out of reach.

At least one four-point play or it’s not really Gallo.
