Craig is bigger than I thought
Thought the same thing. Looks like a linebacker.
Ya and when he extended for that dunk, he showed off some length too. I don’t know why, but I thought he was more 6’5 210...but he’s listed at 6’7 221

2 straight good DA games. Couple really good defensive possessions there.
Totally. Energy is key with the big fella.

Love to finish this without having to use CP3 or Booker

One of Ayton's best games of the year.
Craig adding a nice contribution.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

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
Still wish he wouldn't bring the ball down but this is nitpicking. He carried that 2nd unit along with Cam in the 4th without Paul or Booker. Controlled the game.

I was prepared to mention how much I love Bam and how he’d look great with us, but Deandre outplayed him tonight

Ugh...I know it doesn’t matter, but I hate when we blow leads and make the game look closer

Yep, and I hate how whenever we have a chance to keep a team under 100 we always let them get it at the very end.

Ayton: 17 pts, 16 rebs, 3 dimes, 3 blocks (and about another 4-5 shots altered)
DA ... bottle this game, and drink it frequently for the rest of the season ...

14-5 on the road. Only Lakers at 14-7 are close to us. Tells me we need to be better at home, haha

Only seven (7) turnovers against a fairly tough Miami defense.
Paul and Booker: zero TOs.

Cam Payne carried that unit in the fourth quarter. Love watching him work.

This was the first of 8 straight games against teams that are around .500 or lower. Gotta take advantage of this stretch.

New guy looked good again.
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

Ya just checked...Orlando, Toronto, Charlotte, Atlanta, Chicago, OKC, and Houston before we face Utah. We could be 36-13 going into that game.

Jazz schedule isn’t much harder though. 3 Memphis games, Dallas, and Brooklyn. Plus Chicago, Cleveland, and Orlando.
