Melton not being able to really do anything when he gets into the lane isn’t ideal. Lead down to 8 after a few free throws and a 3 for Jokic.

Does anyone miss more potential poster dunks than Josh? Probably should have just layed that one up

Melton and Oubre have been fantastic. Oubre has given this team something it lacked, attitude. I hope we keep him and Holmes for the long haul.

26/12/3 for Oubre with 2 blocks and a steal. Maybe he can be our 4

Oubre is a killer. Can’t believe we got him for Ariza’s animated corpse.

Are you kidding me?! With that Oubre banked three to end the third quarter? Suns up 81-69 after three. Nuggets awake now. Cut into that halftime lead a bit. Let’s take this!
We take it!

Are you kidding me?! Suns take down the Western Conference leading Denver Nuggets 102-93. Wow.

If you split the season into trimesters, Suns were 4-24 in the 1st trimester and are 7-9 in the 2nd.

Best game of the season. We held up start to finish and it was a great team effort. Oubre had the high score but everyone who played had an impact. If we can incorporate Booker into this kind of play rather than asking him to do everything, we may be onto somehing.

Oubre ties his career highs in points (26, tied on Tuesday also!) and rebounds (11).

After our third trimester, we just might give birth to a real NBA team!

What are we going to do about Oubre or our logjam at the 3? Small sample size but I really like Oubre and would prefer him over everyone not named TJ.

You guys remember when we used to start Canaan, Ryno, and Ariza?
