Rui, Bonga and Robinson look good. Will be interesting to watch this team when Wall comes back.

Not impressed with Ayton at all, and it raises questions about the value of drafting a center so high in the draft.

For as unimpressive as Ayton has looked, he absolutely outplayed whatever Bryant was doing out there.

Jerome Robinson is one streaky mofo.

We just can’t play defense without fouling

The only difference is Ayton was the #1 pick in the draft...

This is true, but perhaps it's just better to say we can't play defense

2nd quarter has been horrible. Awful. Unwatchable. They had a nice little run and then everything fell apart.

On the bright side, Jerome Robinson hasn’t been terrible so far

I want a lottery pick so not rooting for Wiz, but they played too much one-on-one in first half. Not even moving the ball. Defensively, they treid, but they are just awful and the pace helps the Suns more than it helps us.

Good start to the 2nd half. Consistency gonna be the word repeated throughout these 8 games

Rui might never be a star, but he definitely projects as a solid player.

Jerome Beal and Ish Wall are keeping them in the game.

He's getting better putting the ball on the floor and driving.

The concerning thing about Bryant must be the fact that he is making the same mistakes over and over again. His defensive awareness is so lacking. It's not just that he's playing bad defense, it's that he's out of position. How can you evaluate a player's defense when they are so out of position?

TBJ has poor jump shot mechanics. Every time he shoots it looks like he's trying something new. And Bryant does a lot of ball watching for an energy big, very disappointing.

Question. Let's say we lose every game. Our lottery odds would still be worse than all the teams that are not playing correct?
