Saric is flummoxed by the Rockets' quickness. Put Ayton back in, please ...

Let-down-look-a-head special. Houston thinks they can win this game so now it's a battle.

We deserve this but the refs are also extending the game for the Rockets a bit with some of these calls.

Hey Monty - what happened to playing through Ayton?

Reminds me of the quote about UNC's Dean Smith being the only guy to hold Michael Jordan consistently under 25 pts.

Monty does a number of things well, but don't ice your own hot player, especially when Saric is having a bad game.

Also, sit Carter and play Moore.

Carter hustles and plays defense, but Moore is the better all-around player.

No they can't.

Booker came in and took over. Then Paul a little. And then another little let down to keep it close. But yeah, a win is a win.

Didn't get to see much of the game but Jae'Sean Tate seems like an interesting player. Learning to hit the 3 would make him pretty impressive. He's decently athletic & has a really good FG% around the rim.
Go Suns!

Middle 2 quarters might have been the best 2-quarter stretch of Ayton’s career. He was invisible the 1st and 4th on O but his D was pretty good throughout.

The Booker 7 3s thing is hilarious at this point.
