Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Move the ball, get open shots.

Sometimes the game is simple.

This game shouldn't be used to demonstrate effective defensive effort.

26 first half points for Crowder.

Hopefully it’s not one of those games where Suns go ice cold from 3 in the 2nd half but continue to shoot them cuz of reasons

I almost pity Rockets fans for having to watch this team, but then again, fuck'em. Rockets fans are assholes. They deserve this garbage team.

Feels like we should be up 40, "only" up 23. Crowder 8-9 from three and a career high 26pts. Everyone playing and shooting well, the bench helped extend things with Jevon gonig 3-4 from three and Payne and Dario getting some baskets. Hopefully we can keep the lead up and rest the starters again.

Olynyk seems a tough matchup for us and Wood was drawing DA out with his 3pt shot. Wall can get to the basket whenever he wants and Porter's always a threat. Can't let them back in, plus Utah is losing to the Wizards so we can hopefully make up some ground.

Booker gets in on the action...Ayton the only player who’s played and hasn’t hit one..

Good timeout by Monty. Too much showboating, lackadaisical play to start the third. Just put these clowns away by the end of the quarter.

Ya, he was great in the 1st half...Rockets were trapping him and focused on him, he just let our shooters shoot. Need to keep moving the ball around.
