I’m excited to get Jerome back, but our problems are not in the backcourt.

Diallo out and Baynes probable is really, really bad. Cam is questionable, too. That means we could just have Frank and Dario up front for 96 minutes between PF/C, which means a lot of Kelly at the 4.

6 of the 8 games before Ayton returns are against teams that currently have worse records than us. Let's win these!

A very impressive start by Ty Jerome. About as good as anyone could've expected.

Suns losing the rebound battle 16-9, but a big edge in forcing turnovers 9-1.

Agree. He does not look good.

Suns hustle is good.
Defense also solid.

Too many threes ... if they'd attack the hoop more or go for mid-range shots, they'd be up by 25 or more.
But the energy is there, and that's great.

Bridges having one of his better games this season.
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

I'll concede a few boards as long as the Suns are making it up in hustle stats.
Suns lead in steals, 12-2.
Also assists, 18-11.

Yeah. Bridges' best half this season.

Really good ball movement and very active team D. Booker has been quiet, but he hasn't really needed to assert himself.

Also, Rubio is such a freaking smart defender. I can't remember the last Suns PG who was this good defensively. Kidd?
