Coaches Notes:

  • Not much in the way of pre-game questions for this one
  • Coach Gentry emphasized the up and down nature of the season and that all teams struggle. "We win a few games and all will be right in the world"
  • His emphasis remains limiting turnovers but the Suns had 6 in Indy and 8 in Atlanta and lost both games and as Paul Coro pointed out today, the Suns turnovers about where they were during the 14-3 stretch
  • I asked if the Suns were using the zone more and he said no, it was just certain match-ups against teams that don't shoot the ball well from three. Memphis is 29th in the league in three's but the Suns lost Mayo a few times in the zone
    Gentry also pointed out that you can't use the zone too much but against both the Heat and Memphis the Suns got torched on high/low plays and back door cuts as those teams were able to adjust and find the weak spots
  • There are a lot of Chinese media and fans here to see Yi
  • Suns coaching staff talked to Robin about not being over-amped in this match-up with his brother and pointed out that he's played with more poise lately but we'll see how it goes
