Can the Suns somehow steal Sengun away from the Rockets? Pretty please.

Was pretty sure Monty would start Biz. He works very well with CP in the PnR and it keeps Jock rolling with the 2nd unit.

Landale with the Ayton layup miss special. Like it's he's not even gone.

Biz gotta be smarter with his fouls. 3 fouls in 9 minutes can't happen with DA out. Londale is in with the starters, surprised we haven't seen a few minutes of Dario.

Feels like they are saving him either for a trade, for health or for the purpose of not playing his way out of any value.

They traded Smith to the Pacers last season.

Solid 1st half...turnovers and fouls on our bigs are issues but we're playing fast and killing them with size inside. Book with 21 and Jock with 16 and 6 already but 4 fouls also.

Bench played well again, had to go small with Craig at the 5 after Jock picked up his 4th.

Landale with 16 and 6 at the half. Suns are winning. I was gone for the first half so just checked the score and box score. Figured we were down big based on the limited negative posts. Our bigs in foul trouble. No bueno.

Suns up 55-46 at the half. I missed most of the first half doing family stuff, but I'm glued in for the second. Looks like Book is carrying us again. Is Jock Landale our second-best player with Ayton out??

I wonder who’s managing his groin?

Jock picked up his share too. Might have no choice but to play him tonight.

Speaking of groin management
