That, and we will see a lot of "it until March 6th 2019 to get our 15th win last year and we were 15-51, so we are two months ahead of schedule!"

A loss tonight and we will call the player du jour a bum who needs to be traded in a four-team deal that wouldn't even happen on NBA2K.

We should beat teams like this. We have more talent than they do, more shooting, better PG/passing, a better superstar in Booker. But lately you can never assume a W from these Suns.

Ayton coming off the bench tonight. I’ve been critical of his play but I’m not sure waiting 25 games to bench him is the way I’d go. I was under the impression that we acquired Baynes to be the backup. I’d like to see how the Ayton Saric pairing does out of the gate but I guess not yet. Maybe Monty sending a message. We shall see

I hope it is a message. A message that he needs to learn to play the right way and block out his man.

I would much prefer to start ayton and saric with Baynes coming off the bench. I don’t think ayton-baynes is the answer but neither is ayton off the bench

I'm not so sure Monty has a plan.

Hey, whenever you have an opportunity to disgruntle your franchise center by benching him, you gotta take it. #coaching

I really don’t like benching Ayton.

I think you're overrating Ayton.

He hasn't earned a "franchise player" label as a professional.

Ayton certainly has done nothing to earn being benched. This is utter nonsense. Can't we ever get a real coach in here?

Lovely pass from Rubio to Booker for the open 3

Book hit that open three, but I think Rubio should have tried to get that alley oop pass to Ayton. The defense had committed to Rubio at the last second. He has to get that pass off. Ayton is the tallest and most athletic guy in the lane at that point. Put it where only he can get it and let hom throw it down

Monty is a fucking idiot. I’m not going to watch this clown show. Benching Ayton instead of demanding your team play through him? Fucking clown.
