NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

What a performance on opening night by the Phoenix Suns!

Is Devin Booker an MVP candidate? Is Deandre Ayton going to win Rookie of the Year? Is this team going to make the greatest single season turnaround in NBA history? OK, OK, we’re getting way ahead of ourselves. But, the Suns’ dominating win over the Dallas Mavericks on opening night was a positive step that all Suns fans have been waiting to see.

In this episode of Fanning the Flames, we dig into the Suns’ opening night win, including:

- The debut of Deandre Ayton

- The return of Devin Booker (and his ridiculous fourth quarter)

- Coach Kokoskov’s offense and

- The performances of Trevor Ariza, Josh Jackson, and T.J. Warren

We also touch on reports that the Suns had the opportunity to trade for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander on draft night.
