Game Day: Suns (8-3) @ Rockets (1-11), Sun 11/14/21

Post by Superbone »

Time: 5:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: Toyota Center, Houston, TX
TV: BSAZ/NBALP

Eight would be great! Suns looking for their 8th straight win but don't take these Rockets lightly. They are a well coached team. Step on them early like we did with the Grizz and don't look back.

Go Suns!!!

Suns started off well and Book was going crazy - peak Book with like 16pts in the 1st qtr. Then Paul sat and Payne and Frank came in....not so good. Payne's been a disaster and this looks like Frank's "back down to Earth" game. We caused 9 TOs but only lead by 4. Rockets can play real tough or real sloppy.

I just finished the first quarter. Suns starters looked like the defending Western Conference Champions. Then the reserves came in and stunk up the joint. Payne has been painful thus far.

Not a lot of chatter in here. Rockets have some young talent but are obviously several years away from making any real noise. Booker having a great game for us and carrying our scoring. JaVale and Bridges also having a nice game. The bench has given us very little; that's my main concern so far. Houston's guards have given CP3 a bit of frustration with their tight and physical defense.

Frank has been AWFUL. -18 in a game we lead by 12. like 4 point blank missed layups.

Monty too slow with the timeouts. I hope he staggers CP in because the bench is not getting it done.

This team has the ability too get really lazy and let teams back into games after getting a big lead.

That foul call on House at the end of the third was a bit out of character... Can't complain, but I'd be pissed if I were a Rockets fan.

80-63 at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Is it time to start talking about Landry Shamet yet? I like the guy and am rooting for him, but he's had a lot of stinkers lately. He's currently 0-4 tonight in 8 minutes. Has he just not gotten comfortable yet?

He's been disappointing, but it's still early in the season.

This frustrated me before until I realized every team in the league does the same thing.

Frank has been bad on both ends tonight.

Better bench play in the 2nd half with the Cams and Shamet knocking down some shots to hold the lead. Paul, Jae and JaVale back in for a few minutes to close it out.

I hope Monty pulls the starters in a few minutes. Minnesota has been kind of a clusterfuck as of late, but they have enough talent to win tomorrow.

True, but McGee looks all-league tonight. No worries.

Nice blowout, Rockets weren't ever really a threat. McGee was all over the place on both ends 19-15 and 3 blocks I think. Super impressive when he's locked in like he was tonight.

Paul is playing on Hall of Fame mode, everything is easy and he can pick his spot whenever he wants. Thought Mikal was a little off but he still finished with 14 and 6. On to Minny.
