Lonzo courting a triple doube. 29-10-9 with just over a minute to go vs PHX.

Lonzo ends with 29 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists in 37 minutes and a W. Shot 44-44-50 (1/2).

Easily best performance of the season for any rookie. Good bounce back after Lonzo got bullied by Pat Bev. It'll be hard topping that outing.

Wish the Celtics had a talent like Ball...even performed better than Kyrie Irving the last few games.

I'm going out on a whim and saying Malik Monk.

That is a very thin limb thus far as Monk had a -7 PER in his first game and a PER of 2 tonight, giving him an average PER of -2.5 thus far.  He is shooting 18.75% from the field to this point.

The injury to Hayward may improve Tatum's chances. He will get more game time and he has adapted to the pace of the NBA quickly. Tough season with Simmons in the mix but stats against Phx don't impress as much as stats V Cavs etc. I expect Tatum will put up a 20+ points game before too long.

I hate the fact that Simmons is considered a rookie. He's not. Its a technicality. He's a 2nd year player. He's had a year in NBA locker rooms already.

29 points on 27 shots isn't that impressive.  It was also against the Suns who are staking their claim as worst team in the league.  They lost by 48 to the Blazers who were without McCollum.  Ball should look his best against young, fast paced, no defense teams like the Suns.  It is against the rest of the teams where he'll struggle.

Like the three points he had Thu 10/19.

Kyrie's average is 20.  Ball's is 16.

Go home, troll, your not a good one perhaps stop before your exposed even more.....

He shot over 44% on those 27 shots, by the way. I'm just glad Fultz, Fox, Tatum, etc. also get to play against the Suns. I'm going to be seeing who doesn't have amazing games against this ****ty defense, so I can call them a bust.

Meanwhile, Josh Jackson ain't looking so hot on the Suns so far.

Lets all not kid ourselves.

Barring injury the award will go to Ball. He is the new face of the Fakers and the media and espn will show highlights of him even if he has a soso statline of the night.

Tatum will probably be 4th in the running even if he has the minutes and exposure...there's just no stopping the Ballchoochoo train.

If Tatum can put up decent numbers this year in place of Hayward being injured and have a solid impact on our team he can get ROY.

I don't even think that his numbers would have to be better than Balls - but the TEAM would have to be better than LA.

If this team can somehow muster 45-48 wins, get a playoff berth AND Tatum puts up 14-6-2-1-1 and THEN the Lakers get only 25-30 wins I don't see how Ball can get ROY.

So far, Jayson has put up 12.3, 9 rebs, nearly 2 assist and 1 block, through 3 games. Not bad at all.

Tatum is going to slay with or without ROY! ROY doesn't always mean you're the best.
