Suns won't go far unless Ayton and Paul pick and roll starts clicking...

It might not be sustainable but it also might drop off much, their 3 point looks are wide open, if you look at Utahs 3s they were mostly contested, while suns were mostly wide open and they have been in every single game because of the ball movement


Well, last year the best in the NBA by a team was 38%...so it's extremely unlikely we finish at 40% or higher.

this was very evident. the Jazz were like the Globetrotters against us in preseason. glad we adjusted to that. This game also helps answer the question of whether opponents are not shooting well against us because they just suck or because we play good perimeter D. Looks like it is at least partly due to our D.

Important to note that Drysdale called Deandre Ayton “AD” today by the way.

But already has started clicking, we have so many open threes because of that play.

It's a luxury to have two defenders like Bridges and Crowder on the same roster.

Bridges made Mitchell's life miserable in this game. Crowder didn't give any space to Bogdanovic. And both played very good help defense all game long.

Cam was on Bojan too at times, he deserves some credit for his defense.

Suns Offense 24th
Opponent Offense 30th
Pace 30th

We're now a defensive team like Utah.

Who'd've thought our Offense would be lacking this season, but we'd be 4-1 because of our Defense? Even after our Bubble performance.

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though
