I have no idea why Monty took Carter out of the game.

Questionable seeming how close the game is now. Dude was on fire and you extinguished it.

Suns definitely went into this game pretty nonchalant and it’s showing now. Kings giving them all they want. Suns just really sloppy on both ends tonight.

Too many instances of that this year.

Awesome game for Ayton. I thought Cam Johnson was great in the second half. Nice defense, attacked the basket, hit some shots.

DA with another fantastic effort. Clutch J too. I’m hyper focused on him because if he plays like this we are legit title contenders

Ayton with 26 points on 91% FG shooting, 11 rebounds, 1 block in only 30 minutes.

Singlehandedly sealed the win for us.

And some of y'all wanted to trade him away.

And 6-6 on free throws.

Great game!

We have now clinched a top 11 seed, getting very close to clinching a top 10 seed.

First 40-win season in 7 years.

More impressive than 42 points on 31 shots.

I don't think anybody wants to trade away this version of Ayton. But even his strongest supporters would have to admit that this is not the version of Ayton that was playing for long stretches this year.

It's really great to see him this focused, and he has been for a couple of weeks in a row now. Is this the new normal? If so, then they need to start figuring out how to make room for another big salary. This version of Ayton is a winning player, and worth a substantial contract.

No kidding. Definitely wouldn't trade Ayton for Dort.

I think I would honestly take this version of Deandre Ayton (assuming consistency/development going forward) over Doncic, mainly because he plays both ends.
