What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Last 3 games:
Clippers have had 2 of their highest rated offensive performances of the season (147.2 points/100 poss. at SA, 138.5 points/100 poss. at LAL) and 3 of their top 9 (123.1 points/100 poss. at DAL).
Of 14 games over 120.0, 9 have come since PG/Kawhi returned at CHA. – 2:10 AM

A pretty fundamental Suns win tonight in a few ways (plus a part of the rotation I’m keeping a close eye on as guys get healthier the next couple of weeks): arizonasports.com/story/3475867/…1:01 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
After last game, Jock Landale joked with Dario Saric in the locker room that he should’ve dunked his coast-to-coast layup.
I reminded Jock about that after Saric went for the poster tonight, and he laughed: “I know! And look what happened!” – 11:49 PM
Phoenix Suns @Suns
22 3-POINTERS TONIGHT 👌
The Suns are now 13-1 in games with 20+ 3-pointers made in franchise history!

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Chris Paul loves watching Cam Johnson create more, but talking about his dunk with the unstable landing, he joked, “He needs to hang on the rim longer though. Scared the life outta me!”
Johnson when CP3 told him that: “I had too much heat on me!” – 11:45 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Wow. Dallas is currently in seventh…Jazz fell to eighth. Phoenix for the moment back in sixth…. – 11:41 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Assuming the Clippers win (up 18 on the Lakers right now), the Suns will be 6th in the West after winning 4 straight games, and only 3.5 games behind the 3-seed. They were 12th just last week – 11:32 PM

Monty Williams called Dario Saric a “warrior” and said the Suns hope he’s as comfortable as he looks right now, which is the best he’s looked post-injury.
He also laughed before saying, “Tonight he tried to dunk one, but I think the rim moved.” – 11:28 PM

“The intensity that he plays with, it gives everybody energy.”
Monty Williams noted that Bismack Biyombo is 6’8″ playing against 7-footers, but nobody can tell with the way he plays – 11:25 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Monty Williams said the Suns still need to build up Cam Johnson’s endurance, but it’s clear how much he opens things up for everybody else on the floor – 11:22 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
With their 4th straight win, the Suns are now just 2 games out of 4th. Pelicans hold that spot and have lost 5 straight. – 11:17 PM

Dario was enthused after that last 3 and so was Saben Lee. Dario went for a dap and then chest bump, which Lee responded with a “damn” look because of how freaking large that guy is. Saric smiled back. Silly Dario. – 10:53 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Why would you trade Dario Saric when you can simply MAX HIM INSTEAD – 10:52 PM

Included that little CP3 hop step in the recap of the Grizzlies win. He did it there again. A really good sign he’s feeling all good physically. – 10:44 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
First time this season Jock Landale has hit 3 triples in the same game and just the 3rd time this season he’s hit multiple 3s in a game. It’d be awesome if he’s ready to bust the lids off the rim – 10:37 PM

The injury for Steven Adams happened on the final play of the game against the Phoenix Suns. I saw him limping pretty heavily yesterday.
Suddenly, Xavier Tillman Sr.‘s role just got a lot larger as the No. 1 rebounding team in the NBA is missing one of the best in the game. – 10:34 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Suns open the 3rd quarter with a 24-13 spurt to push the lead back to 20. Cam Johnson once again fueling the run, as he’s up to 24 points on 9-of-11 shooting, including 6-of-7 from downtown – 10:33 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
The Grizzlies just announced Steven Adams has been diagnosed with a PCL sprain in his right knee. He is expected to be sidelined 3-5 weeks. Adams suffered the injury vs. the Suns on Sunday and missed Monday’s game against the Kings. – 10:31 PM

Did Mikal Bridges lose a tooth?
Not sure, but Cam Johnson created 3s for Bridge and Paul.
#Suns up 17 as Bridges now has 16. – 10:21 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Pels go no timeout with 16 seconds left after Jokic go-ahead score, end up with a tough McCollum fadeaway over Bruce Brown. Getting the ball back after a scramble under the basket with 3.7 seconds left, down by a single point. Good place for Nuggets to insert Mason Plumlee. – 10:14 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns led by as many as 30 near midway point of 2nd quarter.
#Hornets cut that to eight before Cam Johnson hit his 5th three with 28.5 seconds left in half.
Suns 58 Hornets 47.
PHX: Johnson 19, Bridges and Landale 10 each. Team: 11-of-20 3s.
CHA: Rozier 12. Team: 4-of-11 3s. – 10:07 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
15-2 run by the Hornets in under 3 minutes.
Suns still up 16 but they’ve been unable to deny making the last 3 wins dramatic despite all 3 being ones they should have put away.
Tonight should be progress on that front (against a much worse opponent as well). – 9:56 PM

Suns up four touchdowns. Big 6:39 here for the Hornets to see if they can put together some type of scoring drive before the end of the half. – 9:47 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Including tonight’s 2-for-3 start, Jock Landale is now 7-of-15 from 3 in his last eight games. Was due for an uptick and here it is. – 9:41 PM

I’m telling y’all, Dario Saric has looked a lot more like Dario Saric over these last few weeks… – 9:40 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Jock Landale watched his layup lip out after some beautiful Suns ball movement. On the next possession, he hit a 3 and then tapped his chest while gesturing “my bad” toward the bench to signal he was making up for it – 9:38 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
I’m going to go ahead and put the Hornets on bum-team alert. I know, I know, it’s a leap of faith … but I’m Mr. Positive and believe in this team! – 9:35 PM

Suns made as many 3s as the Hornets had FGs (6 each) – 9:33 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Suns up 21 through one quarter. The offense is rolling and also hasn’t been forced to execute much outside of its primary reads. That was 13 assists on 15 baskets and they were 15-of-25 (60%). – 9:33 PM
John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann
Pacers are the 3rd team to have won multiple games they trailed by 20+ points, joining the Sixers & Suns.
Bulls are the 3rd team to have lost multiple games they led by 20+ points, joining the Kings & Rockets. – 9:33 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Will have more on this tomorrow but these are the pockets of the game where the Suns have to use Bridges’ newfound confidence/flow. CP3 should still run most of the offense but when he gets his rest that’s when Bridges can get back on the ball (with Booker too when he’s back). – 9:29 PM

The Wizards have won fewer than 50 games in each of their last 43 seasons (soon to be 44), the longest such streak in NBA history:
43 — Wizards (1980-2022)
42 — Clippers (1971-2012)
36 — Kings (1965-2000)
The second-longest such active streak is 23 seasons by the Hornets. – 3:34 PM
