What is the true severity of Morris’ injury? Seems like they are hiding something or are too cautious like last season when they held out pg for seemingly forever with a hamstring injury

This one is very interesting. Phoenix is hard to read so far, which is expected with 6 games down. They win games and they close them out well, but their starters so far haven’t been that positive, and their bench has in a sense been carrying them. They have been playing really good defense though, and have beat Dallas, Utah and Denver, so I like this challenge after a tough night vs Utah.

Well this has been a good start, let's just hope the Suns don't come back with any sort of big runs

I guess Kennard heard the calls to be more aggressive and just shoot it

PG should have passed to him on that heat check though, but with how PG has been shooting this game, it is understandable

Nice to see. He was starting to remind me of Jerome with how timid he was.

Not that it's a good excuse, but Kawhi doesn't look like he likes playing with that mask on. He's been playing games with such low energy since he had to put it on.

He said it's hard to breathe in that mask

His willingness to shoot it made me go check his percentages, he shot 39% on 4.8 attempts last season and is shooting 42.9% on 5.8 attempts so far this season, so actually let's not give him as many solid looks as he got that first half :lol:

George is having a fun night tonight, yes he is

Off topic: Looking at his role in Minnesota, Clippers need to find a way to get Rubio on this team, would be so nice

Hmm...15 pts now. I can see why the Suns have been good on defense so far. Clippers have been hot, but the Suns have also been uncharacteristically cold from 3PT, this could get interesting. Masked Kawhi is going to need to get going, how long does he have that thing for?

Right on que, Kawhi with a basket

Ayton with more than 3 FTA in a game? Wow, good for him, j/k

Everything is dropping for George tonight, it's a 40 point type night
