Ayton should guard Lillard.

7 boards for Ayton in the first? Feed the beast.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

In the first half Ayton shot 6 of 9 (66%), everybody else shot 11 for 42 (26%).

That's just embarrassing.

Late start without a local broadcast for the first half doesn't help!

Crawford having another one of those games where he looks like he's already retired.

Not sure why he’s playing 4th Q in a blowout...shouldn’t Melton be in there?

Bridges still needs a steal to keep his streak alive

Weird game, starting with th LP feed of the Blazers broadcast which didn’t have commercials they just showed what the people in the arena were seeing during breaks.

I go back and forth on bringing Igor back next year. This game would be an example against. None of the Suns looked like they wanted to do basketball tonight. Igor’s sub patterns were frustrating.

Lots of wining tonight. Suns acting like a bunch of spoiled kids out there.

I don’t want to see Bender attempt another 3. He’s so terrible. I’d worry that he goes to the Spurs and Pop turns him into a legit player but I seriously doubt he’d make any roster next year at this rate. He sucks at basketball.

Tyler Johnson still sucks. Fight me :lol:

What are you expecting out of Tyler Johnson? That may be the problem. He’s not a star, but he’s been a pretty steadying influence. He might not be making a huge difference, but by no means does he suck.

Sorry. That was more about a twitter argument I had yesterday with some Tyler Johnson apologists. The argument was that he was a steal because were only paying him 3 million more than Anderson which didn’t sit well with me.

He had some nice rebound and assist numbers. Negative 14 though which was 2nd lowest.
