One of DA's worst games in a while. The three blocks stand out though:

5 pts, 7 boards, 1 assist, 3 blocks, 5 fouls in 31 minutes of "action".
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!

Yeah, Ayton was asleep in the 2nd half. I saw someone say that he kind of glitched out at the end of the first half.

Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

LOL, yes, I saw that! I think we just learned that Ayton is a Westworld robot.

That was a tough move by Booker, but I had a hard time finding a foul.

If there's anyone in the league Javon Carter can expect to cook, it's Ty Jerome.

It's nice to see Carter playing consistently well lately. He had basically dropped out of the rotation, but he's back in it and found his rhythm. I didn't like him very much in the middle of the season, preferring Moore and Galloway. But his defense is the best of our bench guards by far, and when his 3-point shooting is on, he becomes the most overall valuable bench SG we have. A Payne-Carter bench backcourt is pretty nice actually.

Cam J also had better success on dribble drives last night which is good to see. Got some calls for couple And1s

Jevon did alright and Point Book was Okkk mainly because he didn't really have those bad run himself in traffic turnovers. He was actually picking them apart in the 3rd tho but there's just a different energy when Cam P is running the 2nd unit which I think was clear to see

All I'll say about this game is that I'm glad I turned it off at halftime.

The third quarter and half way into the 4th was the best section of the game.

It took me repeated views to see why the caption was talking about Crowder and Bridges but their simultaneous mimicry of Frank's spin move is pretty dang funny.

The defender caught Booker across the hip as he was airborne trying to reach across the basket for the reverse. I agree that it’s not a call we can expect to be made down the stretch in a close playoff matchup but it was a foul.
