Let me get this straight: we build a nice lead in the first quarter and the second unit comes in and pisses it away?

Ayton having a good game, but he is gassed. Defense is non existent right now.

Yep, what happens when you don’t have a bench.

Some questionable calls lead to Suns getting out of sorts and losing the lead.
Need to stay focused even when refs are not ....
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

This is the Ayton that is the #1 pick. Our young man is growing up right in front of our eyes

Don’t want to hate on Ayton because he’s having a phenomenal game, still blows my mind he doesn’t just dunk everything. Just missed a layup in transition that he should have thrown down.

I don’t like that either. If I were 7 feet I would want to dunk everything. Hard.

Oubre with the absolutely filthy dunk on Milsap.
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

Nice smash by Oubre. Cam Johnson having a nice game. Ayton is working Jokic.

BS foul call against Ayton. Jokic was holding his arm.

Ayton gassed. Game over.

He's played Ayton the entire 4th quarter. Crazy.

Why does Jamal Murray become Steph Curry every time we play him?
