Give Crowder and Paul rest, start Jalen and Moore instead, seriously. CP3 should not play a sec in the 4th unlike vs OKC.

Suns fans have never dated Ayton, except pre-draft compared to that whiny guy Gambo told us all about.

Wood is no g-leaguer. Ayton will have his hands full.

Also, looking forward to see KPJ.

Teams average 1.3 more offensive rebounds per game than us, which is much less than my impression.

If that's our major exploitable weakness that explains why we're in such good shape.

We are #1 in FG% so that means every team we play misses more shots on average, so there are more opportunities.

Yup. All the dumb dumbs harp on COUNTING STAT TEAM REBOUNDS ffs.

Meanwhile, those of us who breathe with our mouth closed, note Phoenix is #4 in adjusted rebounding. Another little hidden nugget of Ayton’s top15 player value.

Of course, stupid fans (who also coincidentally hate Ayton) aren’t aware of these hidden in plain sight nuggets.

Must be jarring going through life so pointlessly.

Please try hard to post without personally attacking people. As you might say in one of your personal attacks, I know this may hard to mentally grapple with, but I think you can probably do it.

Yes BDub, he is only talking to the stupid fans and the dumb dumbs, which no one on our wonderful Suns board is. :D

I wouldn't start those two, but I agree they should get minutes in this game. It would be nice to get an idea what Smith can do instead of garbage minutes. He has had one game(first game with the Suns) with over ten minutes of play, and he did alright.

That is too much IMO. I would not do it and I doubt Monty or James Jones agree with that.

We have played just 2/3 of the season, there are a lot of games left. We can do something like what you are proposing in the last few games of the regular season, but for now we need to win every single game.

I am still wondering if catching Covid has had an affect on Jalen. The lead singer of my band caught Covid, and she is still having issues with singing and her voice, and she wasn't too sick from it.

If these guys want to play they should play. Continuing to fine tune chemistry is a good thing. Plus, in this day and age, you need a good 30 pt lead going into a quarter, and probably a 20 pt lead with half a quarter left. You miss 4 shots and they hit 4 3s in a few minutes they cut it to 8, and that stuff happens. We've seen it. I wouldn't bench everyone until you are up 20 with maybe 4 1/2 minutes. Now if you are up 40 going into the 4th, maybe.

We do have a lot of b2bs coming up. In those if we get leads we perhaps should go deeper into our bench to keep everyone ready, but moreso using all 3 backup guards (Galloway, Moore, Carter) and Nader some.
