Paul Coro

The intensity of this Thomas-Green-Tucker-Marcus Morris-Randolph lineup is playing like it's regular-season OT game. PHX 107-102, 1:39 left

Paul Coro

Kobe Bryant finally is taken out with 2:38 to go in OT. He had 27 points in 33 minutes.

Paul Coro

Don't look for Dragic or Bledsoe to come back in OT. They've been iced.

Paul Coro

Wes Johnson misses two FTs. Green misses a 3 for the win. Thomas hits a J at the buzzer. 94-94. Free preseason basketball coming up.

Paul Coro

Kobe went all Mamba with 3 tough turnarounds/fadeaways vs. good Tucker D. On the 4th try, he drew a foul. LA 94-91, :12.8 left. PHX ball.

Paul Coro

Even Kobe Bryant grimaced at a bad traveling call on P.J. Tucker against him. Said something to Hornacek on the way back with a smirk.

Paul Coro

Ed Davis just shimmied his shoulders at the Suns bench after a fastbreak dunk ... in a preseason game .. that the Lakers are trailing.

Paul Coro

Hey, he's back. Zoran Dragic is now sitting behind the bench in street clothes.

Paul Coro

There's the Randolph 3 again. Unveiled at the scrimmage, he just hit a 3 for an 84-75 lead. Also just scored on a post. Fightin for his job.

Paul Coro

PJ and TJ are playing on the wings with Thomas at point. Randolph & Tolliver are up front to start the 4th. Thomas now has 15 pts in 15 min.

Paul Coro

PHX 77, LAL 71 after 3Q. Dragic: 15 pts, 3 ast; Thomas: 13 pts; Bledsoe: 11 pts, 7 reb, 6 ast; Green: 11 pts. Turnovers have piled up to 16.

Paul Coro

On a normal night, this would be triple-double territory for Bledsoe. He has 11 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in 22 minutes. PHX 72-67

Paul Coro

Marcus Morris upon subbing out: "You didn't let me get one up." He did plenty of other good things in his seven minutes. Good night for him.

Paul Coro

And as that was posted, Markieff dunked off a roll and hit a 3 next trip. Marcus has playing well all game and has switched onto Kobe.

Paul Coro

On the flip side, Markieff Morris' struggles continue tonight. He has two airballs and has settled for jump shots. He's 1 for 7.

Paul Coro

Bledsoe has done everything he wants on fast, strong drives in the half-court or transtion for his first 7 points of the game.

Paul Coro

PHX 50, LAL 47 @ half. Green: 11 pts, 3 3s; Thomas: 10 pts, 8-8 FT; Dragic: 9 pts; PHX: 39 FG%, 10 tov; LA: 46 FG%, 10 tov. FB pts: PHX 22-3

Paul Coro

Welcome back to action, Jeremy Lin. Now try keeping up with Isaiah Thomas. Thomas has eight of his 10 points on free throws.

Paul Coro

Markieff gets a steal but his lefthanded underhand flip outlet to lead to a Goodwin and-one fastbreak dunk was even more impressive.

Paul Coro

Thomas was fired up about Lin bumping him on the dribble & pumped his arm after a score. Next trip, he got a technical & yelled, "Wake up!"

Paul Coro

That sequence won't be in a NBA commercial. Wes Johnson lost ball by himself. Thomas couldn't pick it up. Then it bounced off Hill's butt.

Paul Coro

Floyd Mayweather is sitting courtside across from the Lakers bench. What was the line on this game?

Paul Coro

Barron gets his turn with Markieff up front. Thomas' pushes to drive a foul and becomes the first Sun not named Green to score in the 2nd.

Paul Coro

PHX 24, LAL 17 after 1Q. Dragic: 9 pts, 2 ast; Bledsoe: 0 pts, 4 reb, 3 ast; Marcus M.: 7 pts, 2 reb; Plumlee: 6 pts, 3 reb. Kobe: 0-3 FG.

Paul Coro

Off a Randolph rebound with 7 seconds to go, Dragic darted downcourt, split the Lakers D and got fouled with 1.4 seconds to go.

Paul Coro

Goran Dragic has the Suns' last 8 points off of 2 drives, a fastbreak stop-and-pop and a fadeaway jumper that put him on his butt. PHX 21-17

Paul Coro

Shavlik Randolph is the first sub at center tonight.

Paul Coro

Bledsoe is scoreless but active. He is 0 for 3 but already has 4 rebounds and 3 assists, includiing a fastbreak alleyoop for Keef. LA 11-10

Paul Coro

After Hill gets a post score on Plumlee, Hornacek says, "Miles, you're a center. Quit slapping down here." (then puts arms up high)

Paul Coro

Alex Len will not play tonight but he does plan to return to action tomorrow night against the Clippers.

Paul Coro

Tonight's #Suns-Lakers game is not on TV (except in the L.A. area). It can be heard on 98.7 FM in PHX with Al McCoy and @SunsTK on the call.

Paul Coro

Fresh off his week in Ottawa, Zoran Dragic will join his team at the Honda Center at some point during the Suns-Lakers game tonight.

Paul Coro

This is the 1st repeated #Suns preseason starting lineup. Forward spots have been rotating. The Morris twins also started the Flamengo game.

Paul Coro

Tonight's Suns starters are the Morrii, Dragic, Bledsoe, Plumlee. This could stick because of how twins play together & Tucker's suspension.

Paul Coro

Byron Scott said Nash still has a "tingly feeling" and won't play tonight vs. PHX. Lin will return behind Price, Nash's former #Suns backup.

Isaiah Thomas

I'm so impatient but I still wait

Paul Coro

The #Suns starters will soon be set. Hornacek downplays the lineup's importance. It matters but he also has a point. bit.ly/10iMz2R

Paul Coro

Zoran Dragic is on the worst Ottawa vacation. Nearly a week. With his visa resolved, he'll likely join the #Suns for Tuesday game @ Anaheim.

Paul Coro

Alex Len scrimmaged with the #Suns today for the 1st time since his 2nd pinkie fracture. He's aiming for 1-2 preseason games. Maybe Wed/Fri.

My two favorite #NFL teams battling it out right now! #broncosVS49ers

Paul Coro

To maintain momentum, some #Suns will have to adapt to new roles. Gerald Green knows he might be affected most. bit.ly/1t3jhkE

Follow my man @andrewbogut to get all the good stuff inside Warriors locker room world. Not all of it :-)

Alvin Gentry

In McAllen Tx. On the way to arena to play the Rockets. Great weather but very humid. Heading back to Dub Nation after the game.

Tyler Ennis

Always felt like my vision's been bigger than the bigger picture.

Miles Plumlee

Getting festive for the upcoming season!!! #suns #halloween #firsttimeever

Markieff Morris

This FSU and ND game is the best college football game I've seen in years!! #FOE

Paul Coro

With three 8-minute periods and a running clock, Green scored 23 and hit the game-winning 3. Marcus Morris led the losing team with 18.

Paul Coro

Thomas kicks out for Green, who pump fakes, does a 360-degree dribble and hits a game-winning 3 at the buzzer for the win.

Paul Coro

Got a thriller here. Marcus' 3 gave the first unit a 2-point lead. Second unit has 6.5 seconds. Gattison drawing up some magic right now.

Paul Coro

P.J. Tucker is doing a good bit of playmaking for his team. He ran one set and has fed two consecutive Thomas 3-pointers.

Paul Coro

Plumlee just had a fastbreak dunk on Barron after Bledsoe made a great bounce pass ahead to Plumlee and around a defender.

Paul Coro

Hornacek to T.J. Warren after missing 1-leg runner: "Pass the ball. We're not playing a pickup game."

Paul Coro

Tucker calls himself "Kirk Cousins" after ending quarter w/long inbound pass to Green to set up Thomas layup. Except it wasn't picked off.

Paul Coro

It didn't happen at the NAU scrimmage or preseason games but there was light booing w/applause for Bledsoe's intro at #Suns open practice.

Paul Coro

You won't see Zoran Dragic at today's #Suns open practice. He is still in Ottawa taking care of his visa issue.

Paul Coro

Today's noon open practice isn't a game but a family can see the #Suns in a lower bowl seat (kid's dream) & park for free (parent's dream).

The #Suns will host a free open practice Saturday from noon to 1 at USAC. Entertainment, including The Gorilla & Suns Dancers, starts at 11.

Paul Coro

The Pelicans waived former #Suns guard Dionte Christmas today.

Paul Coro

More #Suns notes with Hornacek on Barron, Len on his broken finger, Markieff on fouls & Parker on Suns point guards. bit.ly/1xZ50Vj

There was a #Suns game last night too. It was a good night to see and feel good about their small-ball lineups. bit.ly/1vnDUrz

Sarver's gift for #Suns fans who attended game vs. depleted Spurs: $25 or $50 credit toward tix, merchandise & food. bit.ly/1sP0Xuc

Paul Coro

Before a #Suns preseason rout ended, Sarver addressed fans with an apology for the missing Spurs and pledged a gift. bit.ly/1sP0Xuc

Isaiah Thomas

I want To go 2 Space and see what it's like. Goodnight y'all!

Paul Coro

Here is what #Suns owner Robert Sarver said in an in-game apology to fans for Spurs absences & his explanation later. bit.ly/1sP0Xuc

Paul Coro

FINAL: #Suns 121, sorta-Spurs 90. Dragic: 20 pts, 6 ast; Markieff: 17 pts, 7 reb; Bledsoe: 16 pts, 6 ast; Thomas: 15p, 5a; Marcus: 14p, 6r.

Paul Coro

Sarver says over the PA that this isn't the team (Spurs) that fans paid to see. He said he'd send a gift to fans who mail him a ticket stub.

Paul Coro

Cotton wound up back in Tucson on that fake from Thomas, who then split Green's legs with a pass for Keef ... who blew the shot.

Paul Coro

Tucson Palo Verde's Bryce Cotton gets in the game and hits his first shot and two free throws in his first three minutes for the Spurs.

Paul Coro

#Suns 92, Spurs 71 after 3Q. Dragic: 20 pts, 6 ast; Bledsoe: 16 pts, 6 ast; Marcus: 14 pts, 6 reb; Markieff: 13 pts; Plumlee: 11 pts, 4 reb.

Paul Coro

Bledsoe showed tight end-type hands to steal a zipped pass. The next trip, Bledsoe chased down Jeff Ayres to block his breakaway layin try.

Paul Coro

Tonight's starting forward combo helped a 22-14 start to the 3rd with 9 points from Dragic. Active group w/4 steals, a block & charge taken.

Tom Leander

Suns "3ptPlay"(Goran, Bled & IT)combined for 34pts, 11ass, 4stls, 5 reb. Isaiah led all Suns rebounders w/ 4!

Tom Leander

Okay, that was the most entertaining 5 min of preseason bball I've ever seen. Bled bigtime block. Goran soars in 4 final hoop. #3PTPLAY

Paul Coro

So that lineup's kinda fun. Half ends with Bledsoe swatting Parker to lead to a Dragic buzzer-beating layin. 11-2 run w/3 PGs. PHX 60, SA 47

Paul Coro

Thomas was recently asked if the three PGs could played together. He said, "Why not?" It's a 9-0 run with that look, plus Marcus & Plumlee.

Tom Leander

Suns triple pt attack is ridiculous! Belinelli has to cover Bledsoe. Good luck w/ that.

Paul Coro

This is the #Suns preseason's first look at a triple threat lineup of PGs Bledsoe, Dragic and Thomas. It's a 7-0 run since they went to it.

Tom Leander

5-9 Isaiah Thomas ripped reb away from 6-10 Plumlee then came down & stuck a 3! He&Bledsoe look good together on court

Paul Coro

Bledsoe is so strong that he finished a breakaway layup despite Daye grabbing his right shoulder. Or Daye is also that weak. #Suns 49-45.

Tom Leander

I am becoming a Big Barron fan. Much better player than first go-round w/Suns. Chases rebs,sets gr8 picks,traps well w/ quickness&runs!

Paul Coro

Plumlee's four minutes did not go so well. He didn't make a shot or grab a rebound and fouled twice. Now, he has a bandage on his forehead.

Paul Coro

#Suns 24, Spurs 23 after 1Q. Markieff: 10 pts; Dragic: 7 pts, 3 ast; Suns cut turnovers (3) while SA made 8 but they let Spurs shoot 58%.

Paul Coro

Markieff has nine points in 2:05. The #Suns had eight points in the first seven minutes.

Paul Coro

Barron is the first substitute #Suns center again tonight. Randolph has a sore knee.

Paul Coro

Hornacek is not comfortable with Markieff at center but he'll use it against an opposing lineup of forwards like this.

Paul Coro

Dragic, the guy supposedly working back into shape, had two steals, a fastbreak layup and a sweet post move in the first 90 seconds.

Paul Coro

The #Suns are wearing purple at home tonight as part of the Paint Phoenix Purple campaign, observing National Domestic Awareness Month.
