Great game tonight! Way 2 start the season fellas. The energy from the fans was amazing!
That was Isaiah Thomas' top career shooting game (minimum: 7 FGAs). He was 9 of 11. 23 points in 20 minutes. Qualifier: Lakers don't play D.
It's snowing in Phoenix. White confetti has been dropping from the US Airways Center ceiling during intros. Please hold for tip-off.
Who is pitching tonight in game 7?
Former Arizona Wildcats star Aaron Gordon will co-host a SiriusXM NBA Radio season-long show, "Year One," about his rookie year in Orlando.

GOOD MORNING AZ!!!!
Question of the day: How do you keep a 20 month old boy in a high chair for longer than 30 seconds? Lol.
Checked out City of Grace church today. Was pretty good! Phoenix has a lot of good churches!
When it's all over all that counts is how the story's told
I sacrifice like every body in my circle
If it ain't salute I got it looking like hate!
Markieff Morris travels again. This time, it gives the Utah the ball down 3 with 35 seconds to go.
Bledsoe just outleaped Kanter on a jump ball ... easily. Markieff 3 makes it a 94-91 Suns lead with 3:20 to go.
Bledsoe is covering Hayward in this three-point guard look. Hayward throws a pass away.
Keep thinking Tucker is a good stretch 4 option. He just hit a corner 3. He boards well. It's Tucker and Markieff with the 3 point guards.
Triple Threat time. The three points guards -- Bledsoe, Dragic and Thomas -- are in together again.
PHX 77, UTA 77 after 3Q. Bledsoe: 11 pts (9 in 3Q), Thomas: 10 pts (6 in 3Q); Dragic: 15 pts, Markieff: 11 pts, 5 reb; Hayward: 19p/5r/3a.
Marcus Morris was 0 for 6 (0-5 3s) but found a way with a steal & dunk. Bledsoe just hustled his tail off on D too to break up a fastbreak.
You might see Alex Len in this game's highlight package. Rudy Gobert posterized him. Overall, there has been much more good Len than bad.
Green gets a technical foul 80 feet away from the ball. Hornacek benches him. He already put Len in for Plumlee too.
This is a trend that you don't want continuing for Dragic: he's 7 for 14 on free throws in the preseason.
UTA 51, PHX 47 at half. Dragic: 11p, 2a; Markieff: 7p, 2r; Green: 7p, 3r; Hayward: 13p, 5-6 FG; Kanter: 8p, 3r. Fastbreak pts: PHX 6, UTA 0.
With 6:46 left in the half, Plumlee picked up his 3rd foul on a perimeter move w/the ball. Len already has 3 so Plumlee stayed in. UTA 40-32
Len has been good despite 3 fouls. Playing big. Tipped out offensive board, grabbed another, scored in traffic & made Exum airball a drive.
UTA 33, PHX 28 after 1Q. Green: 7 pts, 3 reb; Dragic: 7 pts, 2 ast; Kanter: 8 pts; Hayward: 8 pts; PHX: 58 FG%, 5 tov; UTA: 52 FG%, 1 tov.
That might be all the look the Suns need at Green running pick-n-roll. His lob didn't make it past his defender. He did have a good quarter.
Hayward went for another and-1 jam. It turned more into a layup on Green but it was still a 3-point play. Not a good final D tune-up so far.
Hayward used a screen to get by Green, dribbled around Tolliver and dunked through Len's foul. Gulp. Utah 24-15, 4:27 in 1st.
Utah has not scored on 3 of their first 12 trips and those were even pretty good chances. Coaches say the Jazz has looked good in preseason.
Markieff and Plumlee each picked up two fouls in the game's first 4:33. Frontcourt is now Len, Tolliver and Green. Utah 15-7.
Simple but cool moment. Hornacek was outside the locker room. Sloan entered the arena 30 feet away & waved. Hornacek: "Coach, how ya doing?"
Prayers go out 2 all the students involved in the shooting at Marysville Pilchuck HS... The world we live in SMH!
Couldn't listen to people that said I dream too much...
