Game Day: Suns (10-3) vs Mavericks (9-4), Wed 17-NOV-2021

Post by LVSunsFAN »

Time: 8:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Footprint Center | Phoenix, AZ
TV: ESPN

Sorry to post this a day early but I’ll be on the road the morning of the game :)
As the Suns have an opportunity to get their winning streak into double digits we will make our annual trip from Vegas to Phoenix. Look for the long haired blonde guy 15 rows behind the Phoenix bench!

For Dallas, KP is healthy and back in business, but Luka Doncic is reportedly likely to miss "some time" with the left ankle/knee injury he suffered on Monday. The Suns should have everyone available (Deandre Ayton had 22 points and 12 rebounds in his return after missing 5 games with a leg contusion).
Sounds like a great opportunity to create some distance in the standings against a main rival!

Go Suns!!!

I love the thread but I have to admit I'm disappointed by the lack of continuity of the rhyming winning streak statement.

Strong 7-0 start. Book looking sharp early in the 1st.

Yup. Towns looks good, too ...

Back on track with Book taking over. The defense has been really good overall even when the shots haven't been falling. Payne looks good off the bench so far with a lob to JaVale and a kickout to Shamet for a 3. Had a nice spin into the lane but missed the layup.

Paul scoreless on 0-5 shooting. Bridges scoreless on 0-4. The whole team is shooting .408, and .227 on threes.

Bridges and Crowder have to give them something offensively. A combined 1/8 for 3 points doesn't cut it.

And Paul with another poor-shooting first half.

Booker, Ayton and Shamet playing well.

Some of the other guys need to start making shots.
