2 straight good DA games. Couple really good defensive possessions there.

The Suns would never lose a game for the rest of history if they shot like this. It's fun to watch.

Nice lead up 71-49 now. Heat don't have much juice tonight and we've been locked in from the start all around. Pretty methodical right now, just can't let any 3s start dropping for them and let them back in since there's still so much time left. DA's looking spry tonight, a lot of bounce to his game.

It seems like a big source of Ayton's issues is just playing instinctively like he is tonight. He's not overthinking anything and just quickly moving his huge body around. Those two things make it much harder for the defense to manage him.

As soon as they started jacking up contested 3s when Ayton went out, I knew they were in trouble.

And people wanted to replace Ayton with Saric as starting center lol.

Yeah, should have kept Ayton in longer. He was moving well on both ends.
Dario is struggling.
This group of subs disorganized on D.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

2nd unit finding its way now with Cam Johnson knocking down some 3s, drawing a charge on Ariza, then dishing off to Craig for a dunk off the dribble drive. Didn't realize Saric had 5 fouls so DA came back in and hasn't missed a beat. Gallo a bit ineffective, Payne is solid so far, Craig seems to have taken Nader and Frank's minutes.

I need this DA every night. Not his best statistical game but this is exactly what we mean. With DA it’s not about stats. It’s about being disruptive and impactful

WTF was that out of bounds call? It clearly went off of Igoudala like three times. How does the official miss that?

Thought the same thing. Looks like a linebacker.
