Not a fan of how the refs are reffing Valunciunas. He’s being allowed to be very physical but we’re getting a lot of ticky tack fouls against him. He hit Jalen in the face with no repercussions, he’s screamed in the face of the refs twice now with no tech and he’s been hanging out in the paint 4-5 seconds constantly.
Its literal bullshit.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Just signed in to make the same observation. Monty needs to get the refs' ears about Valanciunas' nonsense...

Is it just me or did Herb Jones double dribble on that steal and fast break?

Still less egregious than how the finals were called between Ayton and Giannis.

I think that's two games in a row Bridges has tried to throw a fastbreak lob to Booker. It's a terrible idea.

Suns out-rebounded 43-34 and a huge disadvantage in getting to the line - 26/30 to 11/15

Biyombo is showing some great IQ for a guy who's been away from the NBA for a while.

Biyombo is a great pickup from the discount rack.

In the words of Billy Madison, “man I’m glad I called that guy” Bismack Biyombo.

Hopefully the waiving of Hutchinson earlier today was to create some sort of spot for Biyombo. I don’t know the knew Covid rules but back in the day you could sign a guy to 2 consecutive 10 days before having to make a decision on him

I'm 100% sure Biyombo will be with the Suns for the rest of this season.

Johnson and Bridges 10-16 from deep. That helped ...
