Game Day: Suns(9-3) @ T-Wolves(4-8), Monday 11/15/21

Post by Split T »

Time: 6:00 pm AZ (5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET)
Place: Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota
TV: BSAZ/NBALP

Nine would be divine! Suns looking for their 9th straight win but don't take these T-Pups too softly. They are young but they can still bite! Ant is capable of being the best player on the court, and KAT may see tonight as an audition. Does Ayton make his return? Tune in to find out.

Go Suns!!!

My wish list: KAT, Pascal Siakam, Thad Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Anderson

I've watched the Wolves a couple of times so far and they usually don't run much of an offensive set. The Suns defense has been great as of late, so that seems like a favorable matchup to me.

Something to keep an eye on, Pat Beverley is now on the Timberwolves. We all remember what happened the last time Chris Paul kicked his ass on the court.

I have yet to see a better produced game-day notes than the Suns. They do a really good job.

The longest winning streak the Suns have had since drafting Devin Booker is 9 games! Let's tie it tonight!

It's happened twice, once in the regular season (8-0 in the bubble + 1-0 to start last season), and once in the playoffs last season.

Have we ever got any details on what exactly was injured and when it happened?

Ayton vs. KAT, best player performance goes to the higher seeded team in April.

Hopefully Anthony Edwards will keep ballhogging and causing KAT to lose his motivation.

Also, FUCK Patrick Beverley.

Suns a little flat and tentative coming out.

Ugh, I forgot about Fat Pev being on the Wolves. When's the next Nuggets/Wolves game? Jokic, we've got a task for you.

Not our most efficient quarter of the season. Luckily we're playing the Wolves. I didn't think we looked too bad, just missed a lot of shots. Maybe DA being back in there threw some things off but the Wolves were defending well, kind of like the Rockets early in the game last night.

Gotta get something from the bench guys Payne, Cam and Shamet.

Towns moved about 4 feet on that baseline fadeaway without a travel being called on him.

Great defense. Ayton asserting himself somewhat.

Agree ... defense is solid.

Suns shooting is colder than a well-digger's ass in Alaska ...
