Gamethread: Phoenix Suns vs. Charlotte Hornets

NBA: Charlotte Hornets at Phoenix Suns Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

Alex Len listed as the starting center once again. Tyson Chandler and Brandon Knight are both not on the inactive list, so we will see if they play. Neither has played a second since the trade deadline.

Notable things said in pregame with Earl Watson and Steve Clifford.....

  • Watson said the time away from home was felt in Memphis in the second half.
  • “Our guys played hard on the road. Our young guys believe in themselves, believe in each other. The fight is there.”
  • Watson said WIlliams is learning how to become an offensive threat and they haven’t had that from the center position all season.
  • Williams was told to work on his floater last summer.
  • Watson talked about how good Ulis is at probing (keeping his dribble active while seeking out an opportunity to shoot or pass is what I assume he means)
  • Clifford said what stood out about Booker that was difficult to see in college was how good he is off the dribble (something we’ve talked about a ton on here, especially in his first summer league *cough *cough me *cough *cough)
