4 point halftime lead, not much from booker or ayton offensively.

Ayton doing well defensively, but passive offensively.
Suns needs to challenge inside more...

Lob passes to Ayton have not been sharp.
Dallas playing some decent defense, in general.

Why is Bridges 7-7 and Booker 5-15? The hot shooter needs to be shooting!

Just a miserable third quarter, especially from Booker.

The Mavs look like they want to win this game more than the Suns.

Why go small? Put Ayton in and let him punish their small lineup!

Second unit fairly solid ...

The last 5 minutes in this 4th quarter is why I never lose faith in him.

Jalen Brunson is the biggest bargain in the league.

Yea this game will not be close at the end but the Clutch Net Rating stats are for the last 5mins of the game.
Another night where our play to end the game is the best of the night. Really is a good habit the team has developed

I not worried about his overall play
The decision making will always just annoy me. The shooting % wasn't what bothered me, it's the shot selection after thinking he got fouled, silly turnovers is what I mainly referencing

I'm always on Monty that he could take our starters out before the 1min mark when we're cruising to victory

Bench guys trying to make him stick to that practice smh

The last Suns team to win 11 straight had Steve Nash, Amar'e Stoudemire, Shawn Marion, Raja Bell, Leandro Barbosa, Boris Diaw, James Jones and Kurt Thomas.
