Game Day: Bucks (53-10) @ Suns (25-38), Sun 3/8/20

Post by Superbone » Sun Mar 08, 2020 12:50 pm

Time: 3:00 pm AZ (3:00 pm PT/6:00 pm ET)
Place: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSAZ, NBALP

Early game! Last I heard, Ayton might play and Giannis is doubtful. Do we have a chance? Sure, if Ayton and Saric have the game of their lives again!

Go Suns!!!

I'm reading that both Ayton (ankle) and Cam (sick) are out of this one.

Two teams in totally different places. Can you even imagine being 53-10 and being first in the conference? It's been a minute since we had a team like that. Even without Giannis they'll be all we can handle. That is, unless Air Baynes shows up with nine 3s and saves the day...

Suns 7-9 from three to start the game, double digit lead most of the 1st but the Bucks are without Freak and are adjusting. Middleton is warming up and he's the guy who will pick up the slack.

Bucks making a run now, cut the lead to 15. Book's on the bench with 4 fouls. Gotta find some consistent offense.

Suns up 11 going into the 4th. Six players scoring in double figures, Rubae with a triple double, Bridges and Dario with strong games again, Book's offense is back. Just gotta hold the Bucks off now.

77 at the half. Booker with 28. Only up 18 after a lucky 3 for Korver as the loose ball found him at the buzzer.

Way too many Bucks fans in our house. Suns score 100 on a nice Jerome finish with 1:51 left in the 3rd but only up 12.

It’s all about effort. Everyone’s been stepping up and playing harder with Ayton and Oubre out.

Great all around game even tho it got close at the end. They didn't have Giannis but we didn't have DA, Cam and Oubre!

Bridges with the huge block of a three point attempt with 1:30 remaining. Up 130 to 120.

Great win!
And we didn’t even need Baynes to score 20 3´s to do it!
