Can Ish Smith dribble the f-ing ball any more and just give the Suns the game with his awful shooting?

And ish Smith is back to being awful.

Also, Brooks has played Rui like 15 minutes straight instead of letting Bonga play..

Nice to see Matthews still in with Beal. Surprised Ish is still out there.

Beal’s body language is atrocious right now.

Why is Beal so obsessed with ISOing.

So, at what point are the Wizards going to abandon the whole, let's play Beal the entire 3rd quarter so that he's extra gassed for the 4th approach?

This game is in the bag. 20 point lead with 5 minutes to go. Just dribble out the shot clock on every possession and force them to take 6 seconds to score on every possession (with no 3's allowed) and they only score 4 points a minute. At best, they'll close the gap by 20. If they miss once or we score once, that's the ball game.

Because that's how you use the shot clock.

Monty Williams, pull your starters already, not sure what's gained by him insisting to leave those guys in there at this point.

Agree that you have to think about altering that approach but when he's so freakin' hot, it's tough to take him out.

They should bring their best defensive lineup on the floor and just iso Beal on every possession.

This game is over. Nice job. Hate to say the best win out of the three, but considering Bryant's injury and no Russ, that's a solid win against a good Suns' team.

It's a shame Wagner isn't about 2 inches taller and 15 pounds heavier. He really knows what to do defensively, he just isn't big enough to get the job done even when he is in the right place.
