Pending the outcome of the Warriors-Bulls game, the Suns are now tied for the second-best record in the league.

Suns had seven in double figures, three others with eight or more points.
Nice balance.

First time I've watched most of a Grizzlies game this season. JJJ looks more like Jerami Grant than Anthony Davis to me. A team is probably in great shape if he's the 3rd best guy, but nothing special if he's the 2nd best.

"Thanks AIG for such a professionally done GameDay thread. This was the best Suns victory this season. Bravo!"
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

I'll be honest, when I said I thought this game would be entertaining, I didn't have a 25-point Suns win in mind.

49/48/100 shooting splits is a recipe for 98-0. Why don't they just do that every game?
If only we could play the Grizzlies every night
My wish list: KAT, Pascal Siakam, Thad Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Anderson

Memphis is a young team on the rise. They had a bad shooting game and were without Dillon Brooks.

Usually they save the bad shooting games for when Dillon Brooks plays.

I feel like they’re treading water a bit. Which I can sorta understand. They’ve been performing above their heads the last couple years, but it seems like they are content to be mediocre for now. That Jonás Valunciunas/Steven Adams swap was a head scratcher to me. I know they’re young but Ja is ready now. Feel like they should be trying to ascend.
My wish list: KAT, Pascal Siakam, Thad Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Anderson

Still isn't a lot of talent around Ja. JJJ isn't the #2 guy/big they probably thought he'd be.

No, he’s still more hype than player. The skills are there though…problem is the offense isn’t as unique if he can’t play the 5 and so far he can’t. He’s a lanky wing at this point.

They’ve got some nice 4th-7th type rotation guys(Melton, Bane, slo-mo, Jones) but ya, they’re lacking a real running mate for Ja

Memphis has the tools to run, save for Adams, who slows the pace.

Phoenix was up, 90-52, at one point in the third quarter ...

I know it’ll never happen but Slomo is on my list of guys I’d like to acquire, in addition to Barnes and Thad.

We're up 19 yes but shades of that 4th quarter against Kings

Ridiculous 2mins to end the half
Nonchalant sloppy play started to creep in

Last time we ended a half like that we came out in the 3rd still "too Kool for Skool"
Not this time. 38 point lead at one point.

McGee - 2 minutes, 3 fouls.
He got poked in the eye a couple of games ago and is still struggling with it.
Notice he switched goggles/glasses early.
Speaking of too cool for school, those dark shades are just too much, man.

The Grizzlies are not good on defense, that is pretty clear to me
Remember when we used to struggle against athletic teams like the Grizzlies?

Suns have the longest winning streak in the NBA at 7.
