I'll be there, 13th row center-ish court. Go ahead and sleep on the Pacers. They absolutely suck. Turner and Brogdon are holding this team hostage with their lazy and sporadic play. Domas has a lot of good stats but they haven't equated to wins. Also, TJ Warren hasn't played, in what seems like 3 years. Ownership is absolutely oblivious as to what is going on or they just don't care. They are in a similar position as the Suns several years ago, toiling in the 14th-ish pick area and late to the party making moves to address it.

The Pacers were the most uninteresting team in the league until they signed Lance and ownership is reluctant to even sign him for the rest of the season. Lance will get you back into a game but will also shoot you right back out. He's fun to watch either way.

Pacers suck. Suns by at least 15.

I'm not going to lie, the Pacers always scare me, since for some reason they always have the Suns number. Sabonis always gives them a ton of problems, not matter who guards him and some no name seems to come out of the woodwork to have a great game too. I'm just nervous about them, but I hope to see djy2j on the broadcast. Going to be in your Suns gear, right?

Yeah. I'm still deciding between the Booker jersey or my newer black dry fit Suns shirt. Will be wearing my ugly sweater design stocking cap for sure. Leaning towards the black shirt but will be less visible. I'll post my final decision :lol:

With a win tonight, the Suns would move to 32-9 on the season in what would tie as the team’s second-best start in franchise history through the first 41 games of a season

With a win tonight, Monty Williams’ career winning percentage as head coach would move to an even .500 (290-290) after entering this season with a career 258-281 record as a head coach

Despite not playing Tuesday, Cam Johnson has scored 10+ points in a career-long 19-straight games and has made 2+ 3FG in 22-straight games, the longest streak in the NBA this season and the longest in franchise history

Holding the Raptors to 95 points Tuesday, the Suns moved to 14-0 on the season when holding their opponent to fewer than 100 points and 26-0 when opponents score fewer than 110

Chris Paul remains the only player in the NBA this season averaging 10+ assists per game.

Good to see they're working on the rebounding issue but the ORs have been a problem for a few games.

Ayton lost the ball on the dribble there and looked hesitant to dribble on the next play…need him to stay aggressive.

Feels like there are some new wrinkles in the halfcourt offense that are working nicely. Getting a lot of open looks, just not knocking down a ton of shots yet.

Lot of Booker/Ayton action. I like it

Sabonis has impressive stat lines often, but I’m rarely ever impressed watching him.

I pushed back earlier in the year when people complained about Shamet, but he’s had 3 really good looks from 3 tonight and bricked all of them. He’s really just not that useful if he’s not making 3s
