Cam really had 11 straight for us? Ridiculous

Bench looking real solid tonight. How good would a Payne/Shamet/Johnson/Craig/McGee lineup have been…. Yes I have a mancrush on Craig, don’t @ me

I love that Book could have a league average SG game and we're still playing well. The days where we lose with Book going for 40 are over

League pass sucks. Can't get this game because it is "near" my area.

I checked his stats earlier. He’s getting ~18m a game with similar numbers as to what he put up for us except for really bad 3pt%. I have no idea what Indiana’s goals are, but wonder if they’d be interested in a Jalen Smith flier + 2nd rounder to send Craig back home?

Seriously doubt we'd do that. That $5 million next year would cost us close to $15 million with the tax. I think a large part of the reason we declined Jalen was because of the tax...it's just not worth keeping that money when the tax inflates it by like 3x.

I don’t like the cut of this game’s jib at all. The 21-22 Suns have shown to be very good at closing out games so maybe I shouldn’t be worried, but we’re letting them hang around too much

Ayton playing like he's a rookie now. Getting beat by the easiest most obvious stuff

Funny they show a Suns fan dancing in his seat on their big screen during the break.

Ya you’re probably right…. I wonder how much we would’ve needed to shave off of Shamet’s deal to keep Craig and stay under the tax if we wouldn’t have re-signed Nader to a non-min deal? I’ll check later so I can be upset about us not doing that

Book seems like he might’ve finally got his 3pt shot back after a few years in the wilderness

He's taking MUCH better 3PT attempts. A lot fewer of those dribble dribble pull up 3's and more off the catch with his feet set. That last shot was a really good but tough step back
