Well we are shooting near 70% but when you go to Ayton for a lot of shots and he's 8-9 you will look better. Book shooting well too..probably helps there is more defensive focus on Ayton.

I do really hope someday he can elevate to the level of JaVale McGee.

Suns can't hit anything now. Hopefully they can shoot decently for more than one quarter a game. It's been the 4th quarter lately, but hopefully they didn't blow their load in the first this game.

Not a great 2nd quarter. Hopefully, Monty gets their shot together at the half.

Hopefully, especially since they are missing their 3 best players.

I just got caught watching replays of that video of LeBron hitting Stewart in the face and the ensuing blood and aftermatch. Dirty hit. They were warning the crowd not to storm the floor on the loudspeaker.

I guess LeBron got ejected. They were down by 12 when the pay happened..luckily ended up winning.

Stewart was heated. Based on his continued reaction, DeAndre Jordan must have been baiting him with words.

I just hope we didn't use our regular 4th quarter efficiency and execution in the 1st.

not only is the take foul annoying, but they also make you wait 5 mins while they review it each time.

Awesome spectacle, thanks NBA

It's amateur hour with these refs tonight. Typically this season they are letting teams play out on D, but they are calling all the soft stuff for both teams.

Same. He's 1 of our smarter players. Automatically brings the general intelligence level of the locker room and whoever he's on court with up.

Guys, I just don't think we've got that Killer Instinct. We scored 48 points in the 1st and just didn't keep that pace for the next 3 quarters. Denver almost dropped 100 on us.

I don't think this team has what it takes, we need to trade everybody.

After a hot start going 6 for 9 from the three, we ended up going 5-27 the rest of the way (might be slightly off). We kept shooting it but we didn't rely on the three to blow out a pretty good defensive team.

Love that Booker didn't force it tonight and only taking good shots he can make. Chris Paul with another 10+ assist, 0 turnover game, just aging like fine wine. We fed the hot hand which was Cam who had the his best game of this season so far. We could've probably went to Ayton more seeing how efficient he was with the ball.

Suns are a really good team. And when I say really good, with the addition of McGee, I’m not sure there’s any team in the league that can beat the healthy Suns in a 7 game series.

With McGee, Suns win the championship last June, that’s guaranteed in my mind.

Major props to Monty for keeping the team focused after a Finals run and short off season.

We definitely win with McGee last year. There’s really no drop off when Ayton goes to the bench - so refreshing.

I'd like to see McGee defend Giannis before saying he would have won us 2 games on his own.

He did have 3 turnovers and 5 fouls in 14 minutes today playing against nobodies.

Or maybe it's just an uncomfortable thought, who knows.

Good to have the starters rested in the 4th with 5 games in 7 days with b2b against Spurs away.
