Should’ve let the bench finish this
If this lead drops back down I’d put them back in

Ayton also playing well, especially on putbacks. Adebayo who?
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

Ya Adebayo was kind of a no-show...didn’t notice him much.

And Ayton has gotten real good at guiding missed shots back into the hoop

As much as it triggers me to see Ayton tip defensive rebounds instead of grabbing them, he's getting better at the quick tip offensive rebounds from difficult angles.

Don’t like this one so far. I think we’re gonna lose
Well in my defense I said this before the bench played any minutes.

Very satisfying win. Down 14, Suns unleash the bench, which comes out on fire and takes it to the Heat.
Saric, Craig, the Cams and Carter combine for 65 points.
Ayton was the only starter who brought his "A" game, and Suns still thump Heat by 20.

Ayton 8-10 80% FG, rest of the starters 8-34 23.5% FG.

the Suns outscored them 36-20 over the last 15 1/2 minutes of the game.

and turned a close game into an ass-kicking.

I’m looking forward to the breakdown by Indy...wanna see how close the lead distribution he predicted was...seems actually quite accurate if I had to guess.

I missed the second and third quarters. The box score is telling me the bench showed up tonight.
65-24. Our bench versus theirs.

Sorry, you have no defense. Indy told you the deficits pattern before the game even started. :shock:

This team is so damn good when the bench is clicking.

I can’t believe we won tonight.

The stats won’t back it up necessarily but this has been an outstanding 5-6 game stretch for DA. Please, please don’t let this be another mirage. We’ve been down this road before - I just need to see this consistent level of energy on the defensive end and offensive glass through the end of the season
