Fantastic 1st period, typical letdown in the 2nd.

How many suckers does Sweet James have to reel in to pay for all these ads?

Maledon got hot with 3s and helped cut the lead down. Can't give up 37 points in a qtr even tho they were going to start knocking down shots at some point. We gotta play up defensively and can't give them any spark in the 3rd.

Tough to get into the mindset of someone who sees these ads and thinks, “Yeah, that’s who I want representing me.”

I looked them up once...based out of LA...also sponsor the Clippers. They seemed bigger and more legit than their commercials seemed to imply.

Ayton missed it, but liked him attacking off the dribble there.

They've lost all of their defensive intensity that they started the game with.

These games are tough sometimes...you grab a 30 point lead in the 1st Q and it’s hard to do anything but lose that lead the rest of the way. Good timeout here by Monty. Needs to get these guys to play hard for a few more minutes and then allow the scrubs to play the 4th.

Yep. We can score whenever we want, but OKC can too right now.

Cam Johnson with 14. Nice comeback after getting elbowed in the face early ...
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)
