Bismack Biyombo says he’s focused on moment, not remainder of season with Phoenix #Suns (w/videos) via @azcentral PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Bismack Biyombo said there were several teams he turned down joining before coming to Phoenix. After the passing of his father he said he really wanted to be in the right environment and have the right feeling about his next team. Felt good about the Suns and what they want to do – 1:25 PM

Bismack Biyombo said it’s been an easy process for him getting acclimated with the Suns despite only joining the team on Saturday: “You really have no choice but to blend in.” – 1:21 PM

“Biz just came from the crib.”
Chris Paul on Bismack Biyombo going for 16 points, 6 boards, three blocks, three assists and two steals in #Suns win over #Pelicans.
“I heard Chris tell him after the game he’s made a lot of bigs a lot of 💰 and that’s the truth.” Devin Booker. AM

Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges talking about “No Bizzy” aka Bismack Biyombo, who came up big in 4th quarter of #Suns win over #Pelicans. PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Mikal Bridges said Bismack Biyombo (a.k.a. “No Bizzy”) is one of those guys that it feels like he’s played around him for months with his veteran know-how and how quickly he’s fit in with the Suns’ culture – 11:07 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Per Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson, the nickname for Bismack Biyombo around the team is “No Bizzy.”
I would like to venture this is somewhere along the lines of “we are no longer open for service our business hours are closed.”
Adjust accordingly. – 11:07 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Chris Paul called Bismack Biyombo a consummate pro and said he’s a perfect fit for the Suns’ culture – 10:55 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Biyombo dunk off Paul assist.
Fouled on play by Valanciunas.
Has 16 on 6-of-6 shooting and five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two assists. – 10:16 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Brandon Ingram settling for a tough shot attempt over Chris Paul from beyond the FT line isn’t very good offense.
Meanwhile Chris Paul continues to make Bismack Biyombo look like a 30+ minute center.
🤷🏻‍♂️ – 10:15 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Like literally, Bismack Biyombo is taking over.
Has scored #Suns last 5 points after #Pelicans cut lead to 2.
Offensive rebound led to FTs
Blocked Ingram’s drive.
Then found Booker for 3.
#Suns up eight with 4:17 left.
Again, he’s trying to stay beyond this 10-day. #Suns10:12 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
I do not pretend to speak for Bismack Biyombo but I am guessing that he enjoys playing with Chris Paul.
Suns went to that two-man game the last couple possessions and it’s working. – 10:09 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Bismack Biyombo has given the Suns pretty great minutes at a pretty dire stretch of the season for the center spot. Hadn’t played a game in 10 months before this – 10:09 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Biyombo taking over.
Dunks inside on next trip.
Then gets offensive rebound and is fouled.
Splits FTs. #Suns up five.
Guy is playing like he wants to stay beyond 10 days. – 10:09 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
You did not have Bismack Biyombo fourth-quarter offensive force on your BINGO card. #Pelicans have been wise to hack him a couple times to send him to foul line – 10:09 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Who comes out of the timeout and scores for #Suns?
Devin Booker? Nope.
Mikal Bridges? Nah.
Bismack Biyombo. #Suns10:06 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Brandon Ingram looked to dunk over Jalen Smith.
No that time.
#Suns up 95-89 as Booker and Biyombo enter game for Smith and Wainright. – 9:55 PM

Brandon Ingram with 3 fouls for New Orleans. – 9:09 PM

Biyombo in for Smith, who couldn’t believe he got called for that foul challenging Valanciunas. #Suns9:02 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Biyombo in, gets offensive rebound, finds Paul, who scores.
#Suns up 6. – 8:52 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns open 2nd quarter with Payton, Bridges, Payne, Biyombo and Jackson. – 8:41 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
I hope the “Feed DA” crowd has noticed how productive McGee, Stix, Biyombo, etc. have been — not as a knock on Ayton in any way, shape or form, but as a refutation of the idea that the Suns don’t run offense for him.
The system puts centers in positions to succeed – 8:33 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Watch Biyombo for a few possessions off the ball. It’s delightful. He tales every opportunity to bump his man and get better position for anything. Just a very strong man. – 8:31 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Monty Williams said he got to meet Bismack Biyombo through some NBA-related activities in Africa a few years ago and “had an affinity towards him just on the person he is.” – 7:32 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Suns depth was one reason they made 2021 #NBA Finals. With numerous players out of the lineup tonight, reserve group has very different look, with these players available: Paris Bass, Bismack Biyombo, Chandler Hutchinson, Justin Jackson, Cam Payne, Ish Wainright, MJ Walker – 6:44 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Bismack Biyombo and the Suns are a perfect fit for each other at the right time – via @PHNX_Suns PM
