Man, that was a slog! The Raptors’ offensive rebounding was ridiculous. We’re lucky to get out of there with a win.

Toronto is really tough. I only recently started regularly watching them once Siakam returned.

Much like the Heat, they play hard and they’re well coached. The difference is they don’t shoot like Miami, so maybe the Suns won’t get embarrassed.
Much better. :P

They have this fun all 6’8 lineup sometimes. Although Barnes being out makes that harder as him and Banton are the primary ball handlers in that situation.
Wasn’t too much fun in this one tonight.

Ayton's biffed 5 passes in the first 5 minutes.
He’s been in a Covid fog the last couple of games.

Booker needs to get his shit together.
He had a really rough night. A lot of shots going in and out. Even his big shot at the end rattled in.

McGee is not ready to be playing…he does not look the same.
He’s also still in a Covid fog.

Holy hell. What did I watch? Weirdest most frustrating win I can remember.

No fans. Alleged really arena. Had to listen to the Toronto feed which featured Canadian Dick Vitale. Brutal.

It’s a win so Ill save my complaints. Looking forward to being at the Pacers Suns game Friday. It’s been too long
I really do think the empty gym played into the Raps favor.

Was good to see him snap out of it in the second half.

Thought this was on point:

Main: Schroder, DFS, Powell, Olynyk, EG, Tate, Ju. Holiday, Craig, Hart, Kenrich, Muscala, Nance, Roco, KBD, Thad
Tier 2: TLC, Juancho, T. Brown Jr, Kleber, Nnaji, Lyles, Ibaka, Knox, Roby, Bagley
$: Washington, Wood, SloMo, Clarke, Barnes, Boucher

Also, in spite of it being an ugly win, you’ve got to be able to win those. Suns again were clutch at the end. Don’t forget the Raptors had a six game winning streak going into the game so it was a very good win for the Suns and makes it a much better start to this road trip.

Fugly game for sure. Once again the Suns are clutch in the final minutes like they have been all year.

Book with a forgettable game but he must be commended for his D. Our ball pressure as a group was impressive and he was doing a very good job.

Think Jalen's minutes at the 4 were decent and for sure better than previous games

Plus, Book had one of his mature games, am I right?

Devin Booker on his deal with the Raptors mascot: "We hashed it out. We homies now."

That's hilarious.

Agree with most of that, save for Wainright.
He's a great teammate, but his impact has been minimal.
He actually might have been willing to put a body on someone and get a rebound though.
Good point. Sets an impressive screen, too.
Think he was part of their pre-season team for a long time. Might know the tendencies better too.

Also, I could’ve sworn Ayton had at least 2 blocks. Yet he has 1 in the box score.

I thought the same thing. It happens all the time with him.
