My biggest concern with this team so far is that Crowder is playing himself out of the starting lineup except there isn’t anyone who’s shown that they are remotely deserving of his spot.

CamJ shot has been terribly inconsistent and seems a bit turnover prone. Shamet hasn’t played all that well. Nader has been just awful most nights.

Betting over/under for this game is about 160 ... :shock:

I was actually going to post how happy I was with Crowder's D. He and the rest of the team have done a real good job on KAT but Crowder's really working hard on KAT. Beasley hit a few 3s and our shots aren't falling. Might be some fatigue, gotta see how much juice we have in the 2nd half.

DA looks good, seems to be playing with more hustle and urgency around the rim.

If our shots start falling this could be a repeat of the Rockets game.

I am also on the happy side with Crowder. He’s not gonna be a consistent 16 ppg guy but he is the kind of tough nosed veteran we need. I was upset that we got him and didn’t make more of an effort to get Wood last year but seeing Wood in action I wonder if Crowder isn’t a better fit for our current makeup.

He’s played better than the aforementioned. I like his defense and leadership. I’m more disappointed in the lack of improvement from CamJ

48 minutes. They'll figure it out.

Edit: oof. Wasn't looking at the box score closely. Almost the end of the 3rd and we only have 54?!?

Can't watch. Only read. What happened?

Edwards and KAT picked up a couple of techs. We really kept our head and looked like the veteran team while they were melting down for a minute.

Bev ran near/under Book on an open court lay-in. Didn't look like he touched Book but he definitely ran under him and Book landed a little awkwardly but looks fine. Book may start cooking now.

Booker had a clear breakaway and Beverley ran up and stepped on the back of Book's back foot as he was taking off.

Towns didn't get ejected, but he was very emotional after hooking McGee and getting an offensive foul called on him. The exact same call that the refs called on Mikal minutes earlier, which was executed with far less force.

Frustrating to watch.

Suns make a great defensive play, then blow a wide-open three.

It's only been one game and I'm already tired of watching Ayton tap loose balls around like it's a hot potato.

Not their best win. But I’ll take it.
