No more 3s. Galloway is allowed but no one else.

Sorry guys I’m out for the rest of this one. I hate watching the suns hold close leads. I’ve generally been in shit mood due to a new COVID lockdown here and the suns apathy isn’t helping. This is the first game of the road trip not the last.

Apologies again for the negativity but it was somewhat warranted.

2 of our last 23 from 3 after starting 12/17
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.

Some of those were honest misses on good shots. But most were not. The Suns are not making the Pistons defense move.

Did Ayton have the ball right under the rim 3 or 4 times and do nothing on that possession? I lost track it was so many.

The bench should be the starters.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Give the Pistons credit for changing their defensive strategy. They effectively baited the Suns into taking bad shots and out hustled them on the glass to get back into the game.

The ref has to call that forearm into Dario's chest a foul on Griffin. He was clearly pushing off and Dario was holding his ground.

We shouldn't call And 1 when Ayton is fouled after a made basket. He never Makes the FT after.
