That was a very businesslike beatdown by the Phoenicians. Gotta think Ayton won’t be out too long, that didn’t look like much of an ankle turn. – 3:38 PM

Last couple of games, it’s felt like the Suns have been getting back to the status quo with guys finally healthy and in-rhythm again. Really hope Ayton’s ankle injury isn’t anything major – 3:07 PM
