Mikal taking a soft foul on Bruce Brown is not ideal
Another disappearing act from Bridges today. 0 points, 0 rebounds in 13 minutes.

Not too fussy about Frank quick 3 just now, not gonna be super critical though. He's been doing alright

Wanna have a strong close to what has been a good quarter so far

Got to do a lot better job against Irving in the second half.

Shit way to end the half. Kyrie's getting whatever he wants and I think we're defending Durant well he's just Durant.

It's games like this where I don't think you can justify 20+mil for Mikal.

Bridges needs to wake the fuck up.
He's had a couple of nice plays in the 3rd here, and he's playing some good defense, but overall his game has been quiet.

Craig is giving us some surprisingly good minutes. Basically he, Ayton, and Booker are doing most of the work. Need some other guys to step it up.

I get that Devin made the tough left hand finish over Jordan, but he had Ayton in the post against Durant. Get Ayton the ball. Make Durant work. I hated that Devin took it himself on that play.

I just finished watching the first half. Lousy way to end the half. Block out, DA!
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!

I'm really loving the offense today where Book and CP just ISO on bigs and take jumpers.

Brooklyn now shooting 57% and scored 37 points that quarter.

Paul getting his butt kicked by Irving today.

Ayton, Booker and Craig have gotten it done today, but they haven't gotten much from anybody else.

Getting blocked by Blake Griffin's basketball corpse is definitely a lowlight, Frank.

I can appreciate Frank's effort, but he's just not good enough to be on the court right now.

If Carter's not hitting shots and not slowing down Kyrie, I'd rather see Gallo out there to try and get him some 3s.
