Halftime. Our big men are dominating: Ayton has 13 and 8, and McGee has 11 and 5. The Wiz don't really have anybody to stop them. Shamet is also having a nice game, shooting 3-4. Pleased with just about everybody's play so far. Suns by 12 at the halftime break.

Real BDE from Paul there. Crossed up Kuzma into an easy mid-range jumper then looks at the Wiz bench and gives them the "timeout" signal.

That last DA turnover was kind of comical.

Exemplary mid-season NBA basketball.

Has Bridges shot felt off lately? I haven’t caught every game, so not sure, but feels like he’s not making as much as normal.

Remember when Bertans was an in-demand free agent sixth man big ... yeah, that guy ...

He got a lot of money…Deal looks pretty bad now. He can shoot, just too 1-dimensional.

I mean, he's out there with with four fingers on his shooting hand. I'm cutting him some slack on the shooting for the time being. However, I want to see him continue to drive the ball into the paint more consistently.

I know we don’t like Elfrid, but he’s having a very good game from what I’ve seen.

Probably the worst contract in the league. Not Wall/Westbrook money, but Bertans deal expires after the 2024-25 season.

JaVale is ballin' tonight. Same for Cam Johnson despite getting screwed by that offensive foul call.

He'll turn into Thad Young. I think that counts as something.

Eight Suns in double figures.
Phoenix also thrashed Washington on the boards, 47-32

He got 7.5 minutes of run in the fourth quarter. A couple nice plays, a couple of poor plays, but nothing embarrassing.

I know it's not easy for him mentally right now, but his body language isn't inspiring confidence in his potential.
