Interested to see how we respond in the 3rd
Although they blew a 16pt lead in the second half last night, still hard for me to see a Pop team doing such but to be continued

Another inspirational halftime speech by Monty apparently.

What the fuck. I had to do a quadruple take when I saw the score on nba.com just now.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Booker & Paul with 21 points on 26 shots.

Crowder with as many technicals as field goals.

Damn, Suns can't do anything right.

Give Spurs some credit. They're taking the 3-pt shot away from the Suns and making them play halfcourt.
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !

This sucks, but this shit happens to every team. I wouldn’t get too worked up about this loss. Shit happens. It’s about how you respond.

Know Cam P was just trying to be a spark but he didn't have his best stint in that 3rd to 4th quarter stretch.

Team's performance not affecting Jevon mojo which is good to see

I also love that teams rest their guys against us, implying that they know they're likely to lose either way, so they don't even try. That says a lot about how we are perceived around the league this year.
Exactly what I was thinking. We have become a scheduled loss. Nice.
This didn’t age well :(

To be fair, not much is to be expected with a busted nose and a face mask.
I thought Monty should have limited his minutes.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

When none of your starters has a good game, and maybe two or three of your bench players play well (Carter and maybe Payne and Craig), you're in for big trouble.

To be fair, I didn’t say which team. And if you really want to analyze it, I said “We have become a scheduled loss.” You might even say I’m a regular Nostradumbass.

Shit game, never really had it going and looked a little deflated/tired. Last night's Spurs team was exactly the type we struggle with - normal starters/rotation guys sit so 2nd and 3rd stringers play with nothing to lose and outplay us. We probably were just looking to get this one over with and get on the road. I was kind of hoping Monty would sit our main guys like CP and Book, maybe DA, for some rest before the road trip.
