A Mavs player tested positive.  So he is in quarantine along with two other players.

Philadelphia has been stuck in NYC the past few days because over half their team is in contact tracing.  They finally left tonight but only have 6 available players for their next game.

Well, that was a fun game to watch. 
 

love seeing Bey continue to step up. Blake actually showed up tonight too. And Grant continues to impress. Rose was a mess, but Wright actually played pretty well. He’s got a quick first step.

Most nights that will be an L.  Phoenix had a ton of open looks and the shots were not dropping.

Glad to see Grant get the efficiency back tonight.  66% from the floor and 60% from three.

Its weird to see a Suns team play good defense. 

COVID, murder hornets, election issues, Suns playing defense,.....  strange times.

Looking at the box score, it looks like this was won at the free throw line.  Detroit 25 for 29, Phoenix 6 for 13.  Phoenix did turn the ball over a few more times (20 to 13), but Detroit's eFG% lagged Phoenix (.472 vs .550).

Stewart with a -15 in 8:37 of playing time.  I realize +/- isn't the end all be all, but wow, that seems difficult to accomplish.  He played only in the 1st half.  Did he get hurt or was he a healthy scratch in the 2nd half?

Although Stewart wasn't great, you can attribute way more of that to Rose in the 1st half.  He was a train wreck of bad/missed shots and turnovers.

Second half Casey went with Okafor over Stewart.

He needs to improve his passing.  Under 2 assists per game for a guy that has the ball as much as he does is not good.

Plumlee has been pretty good too considering what he's asked to do.

Philly is being a bit shady here IMO.  Simmons and Embiid had no injuries listed with the league this past week.  They haven't practiced or played, yet both are listed as out today on the injury report.  Embiid with back tightness and Simmons with a swelled knee.  Basically the 76ers benched them in hopes of the league cancelling their game.

Tyrese Maxey had 39 points.  I believe that is the highest point total for a rookie so far this year.

Few more games like that and Chad Ford is going to edit his 2020 mock draft to move Maxey up.
