I guess we’re taking the night off on defense

And all it got them was another rushed attempt at the end of the quarter.

DA being a nice safety net tonight...getting buckets to close it out. If he can be that force consistently, it gives us an answer when the shots stop falling.

That's how it is for streak shooters.

Not feeling good about tomorrow night. Not even sure that a Sarver nude could help.

Relax. The Suns know who they and their opponents are at this point. They'll be ready tomorrow.

It's hard to play with a lead like that and continue to hit 3s at that rate. The defense wasn't really there but the Rockets also hit a lot of shots too. Guys like BJ Wilson ad Armoni Brooks especially come out of nowhere and give the team a boost. Got the W tho and kept CP under 30 minutes. Nice job by our bench who can hopefully find a rhythm and consistency. The first half everything clicked for us with the starters and bench, gotta do it for 48 minutes.

Crowder just having one of those games.
Ya think?! I'm just at the half. Wow.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

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.
81 point (should have been 83) at the half was incredible.
