I have a glimmer of hope with Ricky back. I hope his back is back.

No way we lose this one. Ricky will allow Devin to be dominant in scoring which is going to be the most important aspect of tonights game. The Wizards usually play high scoring games. We need to keep up with them. Oubre's scoring is also vital for our success tonight.

Go Suns.

I'm looking forward to watching Booker vs Beal.

Bryant could have a monster game against us.

I want to see Bridges on Beal more than anything.

They also have smaller, quicker guards like IT and Ish Smith, which Rubio generally doesn't have trouble with. Still going to be watching to see if his back is limiting him.

I heard several NBA media types saying that the Wiz were surprisingly fun to watch this year despite being generally bad. I haven't seen any of their games. Can anyone speak to it? What's fun about them? Is it just Beal going nuts every night with no other dominant scorers on the roster?

Do you realize that if we win tonight's game, that we will have almost half of last year's win total after only 17 games?

And either way we will be <10 games away from Ayton's return.

Suns up 23-20. Like to see Diallo out there, he’s playing well and also gives us an idea of what the offense will look like with Ayton back.

They have an agreement. No defense until the 4th quarter.
