Game Day: Suns (26-19) @ Magic (23-22), Sun 1/28/24

Post by Superbone »

Time: 4:00 pm AZ (3:00 pm PT/6:00 pm ET)
Place: Kia Center, Orlando, FL
TV: AZ Family 3TV/NBALP

The Suns look to recover from a blown lead to lose in the waning seconds in Indiana in spite of 62 points from Devin Booker. The Magic have struggled a little bit as of late but have generally had a strong season. Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner have been standouts for the Magic. The Suns Big 3 playing streak may be broken this game after Beal suffered a nasal fracture against the Pacers.

Wonder if Beal gonna be wearing a mask? Would be cool if he busted out a sugar skull themed mask but sure the nba has rules on masks.

Fine with me if Beal needs to sit out a few games. I want him healthy and not risking further injury. Also his injury seemed to affect his play before, making him miss all his shots. We can give those minutes to other guys like Gordon, Metu, and Okogie.

Well he just had his face smashed in by a hard elbow. He came back with his nose stuffed with cotton gauze and couldn’t breathe through it, not to mention it probably hurt like hell. He probably shouldn’t have played. Him with a mask, rested, no gauze and clear nostrils would probably increase his shooting percentage. It’s his face that got hit, not his legs or arms. I say play. Okogie can lend him his mask.

There’s always a concern of delayed concussion symptoms as well after a hit to the face.

It's a really bad sign that Bol Bol is still experiencing pain 2 weeks after the injury. We're nearing the point of not expecting him to be available at all for the foreseeable future.

Is that really the best they could do in 2024?

Beal nice start so far. Seems to be adjusting the mask a couple times, hopefully it's not too bothersome.

How was that not a take foul? It was Book and KD with no one between them and the basket.

Who's better looking? Booker or (maskless) Beal?

That mask has to be rough to play with. Looks super uncomfortable and he keeps playing with it.

Azubuike got that juice tonight. Love to see it when he's needed to make an impact.
