We've had the Mavericks number this year. Can we do it for a third time? Without Booker?

I'm going to make myself watch this whole game. I think we can beat them again. And Ayton vs Luka is always fun. GO SUNS!

The perennial league leader in FG% going up against a team that consistently allows opposing centers to shoot twenty points above their average. Tonight, Jordan seeks to become the first player in league history to hit more shots than he attempts.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

Really good start so far on both ends. Teams are going to learn quickly not to throw the ball in Mikal’s vicinity. He’s wreaking havoc on the defensive end right now.

Ya'll know that Josh Jackson is shooting 39% from three over our last 15 games?

Not pretty but we're up 32-28 with 8 minutes left in the 2nd. Good to see the effort on both ends on the 2nd night of a back to back. Ayton is off tonight which I think is fatigue. Just an off game from him. Our wings are carrying us - Jackson, Oubre, TJ getting it done on both ends. Okobo came in and gave us a quick 7 points, but he's clearly not a full time PG. Got burned by Barea on defense a few times too.

Doncic 16 points so far on 5-7 shooting; Ayton 0 points on 0-4. Hmm.

Everything is short for Ayton. It's not like guys like Warren are ever looking to pass to him, and he's not been good at making himself available. He's also fumbled a couple passes and post ups.

Possibilities at 32:
Isaiah Roby, Darius Bazely, Ty Jerome, Mfiondu Kabengele, Daniel Gafford, Dylan Windler, Chuma Okeke, Carson Edwards, Arturs Zagars, Grant Williams, Zylan Cheatham, Naz Reid

Kleber is giving them good minutes. I wouldn't be mad at us trying to steal him from the Mavs this summer.

Ayton will probably kick into gear here soon.

Jackson has played much better as a starter it seems, no stats for me to back that up, just the ol eye balls. Ayton has been a ghost, really liked Meltons defense.

Still playing hard, but our shots are way off right now. Brick city.

It's hard to watch Ayton play so badly while Luka is such a delight on the court tonight.
