Have you guys noticed, Cam Payne is kind of a rager? He literally screams at the refs when he doesn't get a call, and he almost picks a fight with some poor Laker 2-3 times a game. He seems intense almost to a fault. I like it, so long as he doesn't get himself a tech like he did a few games ago.
I thought for sure he was going to get a tech after a layup in the 2nd half. He was screaming foul at the top of his lungs like I've never heard. He's intense but does need to keep it under control.

I find it interesting that he wasn't really like that early in his career. Maybe being out of the league made him realize that he has to play with some anger to get himself to perform at his highest level. Westbrook, his OKC buddy, is the same way.

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.

I am playing a gig at a sports bar with a gazillion TV’s and will try to avoid seeing a score all night. I managed to pull it off last Tuesday but, boy is it tough.
The cheering (or lack thereof) should give it away.
Did you make it???
I pulled it off. I was so proud that of myself making it all the way to the end. Then we finished and the bar cranked up the Suns game. I resorted to putting on ear buds and cranking up YES while tearing down so I wouldn’t hear anything.

I’m sorry you had to resort to Yes to make it through. That must have been painful.

Ha! It wasn’t painful at all and neither was the game when I got home. The Lakers got humiliated like we did in game 3. They will be motivated and n game 5.

They were not. Let's hope game 6 is a clear win for us as well.

Suns need to not let up. Don’t be the regular season Suns that go up big and let them back in. Go up big then go up bigger. Plain and simple. Win this fucking game.
I tweeted at the end of the 1st that it was worrisome we were only up by 8 after such a great start... :lol:

Who was Booker staring down as they went to commercial break?
Did we get an answer to this?

FUCK
This probably sounds fake in hindsight, but during the commercial break right before this I said "I really hope someone doesn't get hurt since there is no reason for Paul/Book/Ayton to be out there when we are up 30." Then BAM.

I think you just did.
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 think he was staring at Gasol because they were having words before that TO.

Sorry. I’m a big time 80s metalhead. Yes is a bit too mellow for my taste.
