Basically if they can’t keep their stars healthy and be the supernova on offense they were supposed to be it’s going to look like this at times. Without all 3 of them they still have the weaknesses present without the strengths
The fukked up thing is Kyrie and Harden are in better basketball positions than KD. Dude should’ve stayed his ass in Brooklyn and just waited for someone to become available this year. I guess we all believe in him more than he believes in himself.

Listen, you hate to blame it all on one guy but I don’t think it’s a coincidence that once Eubanks got the DNP they look way better.

KD responded well and we’re on to Charlotte on Friday


Azubuke playing with some much needed energy and toughness :ehh:

Suns bigs are gonna have so much space in the paint all they need to do is finish strong and the points should be flowing

The next 3 games (Magic, Blazers, and Clippers) will be a great way to gauge the overall team with the big 3 healthy

This was the best win of the season for this team. Normally a long athletic team like this would give us fits but the Suns maintained control most of the game and responded well to a late game push by the Magic in the 4th. Beal had a great game too

Real proud of the squad tonight :obama:

Nice lil get back win on Portland who I feel like we’ve played a million times already but we needed to whoop their ass after that last loss

Even without KD tonight this team has been playing with much better pace with Beal and they’ve been keeping the turnovers down. They actually look like a competent team that can control a game from start to finish instead of just barely scraping by or having to come back from a major deficit. How important he is to the identity of this team can’t be understated. KD & Book are the better players but Beal actually makes this team run different


Bol Bol with the breakout game off the bench :mjgrin:

Hate that he sprained his ankle because stacked some decently impactful game against good comp this week. Hopefully he’s back soon.

KD should be back Sunday or Monday. Beal is starting to roll and Booker is out of his seemingly month long slump. One more backup 3/4 combined with health and Phoenix should take off 2nd half of the season
