It is certainly a turn tables situation from the Suns last game against Portland. The Suns were traveling from LA to Portland on a back-to-back, and now the Blazers are doing the same as they played the Clippers in LA last night.

When Kaminsky shoots the ball well, he's an NBA player.

Good to see him contributing on the boards too

We were something like 11-2 with Frank as our starting PF last season so we know he can play with this group. JaVale with 4 fouls in the 1st half is why he's not a reliable 30mpg player.

A little choppier with the other guys. Payne had a nice scoring stretch for us, Paul's looking for his jumper a bit more but Book and Mikal a little quiet and not a lot of flow offensively.

Suns dragging a bit to start the 2nd half. Book is off, seems out of rhythm.

11-2? Damn.

More evidence that monty not playing frank in the finals was an increasingly large mistake.

A defensive foul against Frank but a technical on CJ for the elbow to Franks head? Absolutely zero logic.

Feels like a trap game where we keep giving the Blazers some life. They're on a B2B and playing like trash but we can't get out of our own way.

Frank is having a great game, but he needs help. Somebody/anybody needs to step it up.

Frank Kaminsky market correcting Deandre Ayton isn't on my bingo card.

Thank you Devin
For whatever reason he played a hump tonight but when he came back in the 4th with the lead down to 5 he didn't try to be Hero

Just kept moving the ball

Take a freaking bow Frank
Scoring was awesome but two key assists for 3s late, guy just did it all tonight

One of my fav things, don't know if others notice yes Mikal is still mild mannered just plays his game guy for the most part but I see him talking alot more ish and chirping back at guys lol

Frank played unbelievable for what I saw. There was one play when we were up 6 (98-92 maybe) threw the ball to him in the post, he went to work and got a bucket one-on-one (something Ayton struggles to do, for all the other things he does much better).
A couple of minutes later we threw the ball to Frank in the post, he went to work, got double teamed and passed to an open Crowder for three. Beautiful to watch.
He’s obviously going to get shown up defensively amd athletically in certain match-ups but he is obviously a smart player.
