Game Day: Hornets (16-15) @ Suns (23-5), Sunday 12/19/21

Time: 6:00 pm AZ (5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET)
Place: Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ
TV: BSAZ / NBALP

Book is BACK! We'll get to see how he looks after a nearly 3 week absence. Hornets have a young and exciting team that's played well this season but are coming off a loss Friday night against the Blazers. Cody Martin entered Health and Safety Protocols today so hopefully we make it through this one without anyone catching the 'rona.

Go Suns !!!

I'm looking forward to the excitement LaMelo Ball and crew may bring.

Bridges had something to say about tonight's contest, Miles Bridges that is:
"We got to start off games more physical," Bridges said. "We let everybody come in comfortable. We can't do that against the Suns. They got CP3 (Chris Paul), who is one of the best pick-and-roll players to ever play the game. So if we come out like that against them, it's going to be the same result. We just got to continue to get better, and come out physical and play hard."

Oops. You beat me to it. I'll add my content to yours. Do we know for a fact that Book is back?

The Hornets can't catch a break, not that I'm complaining.

Payton still in the rotation with Book back, we’ll see how he does.

22 point lead after 1…do that 3 more times and we’ll set the record for largest win at 88 points

Great to have Book back. Looks a little rusty, shooting 2-7. We are destroying them; current score is 37-15 as I type this at the end of the 1st quarter. Ayton and Bridges carving up the Hornets with 9 and 8 points respectively.

37-15 first quarter.
Assuming Hornets eventually will start making shots, but it would be great if Phoenix could maintain and grow the margin.

I guess Monty is letting Payton have the Nader minutes. That travel wasn't great.

So far a good start to this game.

I wish there was some way we could've gotten Miles Bridges without giving up our core pieces. Pipe dream. But he's almost perfect for our team needs.

Just as I finish posting this, Payton shows why the Knicks fans hate him.

The Hornets could be packing it in early if this continues. They play in SLC tomorrow night.
