Game Day: Suns (7-3) @ Wizards (2-8), Mon 1/11/21

Post by Superbone » Mon Jan 11, 2021 2:06 am

Time: 5:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: Capital One Arena, Washington, DC
TV: FSAZ/NBALP

The Wizards are tied with the Pistons for worst record in the East. Let's not have a repeat performance of the Detroit game, please. Let's see if we can not play down to our competition. Let's build a lead and keep it. We need to win to keep pace with the Lakers for best record in the league.

Go Suns!!!

This should be a comfortable win. I don't see any reason why the Suns can't win this game by double-digits.

Wizards don’t play defense. They can score, but they are also short manned. We should win easily.

The 5.5 point spread I'm seeing on ESPN is worrisome.

Not a fan of Ayton so far tonight..too many mid range jumpers and not ready for CP3’s passes

Yeah. Ayton has been poor to start. Looks like the game is moving to fast for him.

Why is Booker on Beal? Just put Bridges on him...that’s why we have him.

Not thrilled with Carter tonight. He seems to be chucking it whenever he sees the ball.

Offense has stalled with missed jumpers and no passing. Book is cold, Carter's missed a few, Cam just came in and missed one. Beal got 2 quick fouls on Book and Ayton is sleepwalking. Not much good right now.

The Suns shooting are 31% despite getting good looks.

And zero free throw attempts.
