Missed the start of the half and just noticing Crowder isn’t out there..did he pick up a quick foul or did Jalen start the half?
4th foul

when they're not moving the ball and start standing around the offense gets stagnant. And they become a lot easier to defend.

Suns have just two (2) players in double figures scoring.

McGee really struggling. Timing off, mishandling passes. Oof.

Booker and Ayton deserve the credit for tonight's win. They held it together when everyone else was shit on offense.

Three Suns with 11 or more rebounds. That helped ...

Suns energy prior looked good. Cam Payne looked especially amped. Dunno how he looks normally because I live in Indianapolis and not Phoenix but lots of guys clowning before and during warmups which felt like a good sign.

Shamet looked awful until he hit a few in the 4th. I still don’t trust him.

Stix looks awful unless he starts which is probably a sign to trade him.

People were in my ear about the Pacers being tied in the 3rd. I said just wait til the 4th baby birds and I’ll feed ya. Prophecy fulfilled.

All in all they look like a tight knit group on the road. A few additions will help. I trust James Jones in remedying that

Had to pause and just came back and finished the 4th…went pretty much how I expected. We played around with them and buried them in the 4th. That’s what happens when you have the best clutch team vs the worst clutch team. Book and Ayton carried us through 3 and then CP3 brought us home. Shamet and Crowder hit some big shots in the 4th too.

Fun stat: CP3, Bridges, Crowder, and Shamet were 0-17 through 3Q and went 10-11 in the 4th.
My wish list: Nic Batum, Eric Gordon, Larry Nance Jr, Harrison Barnes, PJ Washington, Kenrich Williams, Torrey Craig

Cam Payne had a solid game. Used the right hand once, which was nice to see. Though he had that one layup blocked and had he just gone right hand off the glass it would have been an easy 2. Keep working on it Cam.
