“Biz just came from the crib.”
Chris Paul on Bismack Biyombo going for 16 points, 6 boards, three blocks, three assists and two steals in #Suns win over #Pelicans.
“I heard Chris tell him after the game he’s made a lot of bigs a lot of 💰 and that’s the truth.” Devin Booker. pic.twitter.com/uvGZ3S1zDj12:15 AM

Mikal Bridges said Bismack Biyombo (a.k.a. “No Bizzy”) is one of those guys that it feels like he’s played around him for months with his veteran know-how and how quickly he’s fit in with the Suns’ culture – 11:07 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Per Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson, the nickname for Bismack Biyombo around the team is “No Bizzy.”
I would like to venture this is somewhere along the lines of “we are no longer open for service our business hours are closed.”
Adjust accordingly. – 11:07 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Chris Paul called Bismack Biyombo a consummate pro and said he’s a perfect fit for the Suns’ culture – 10:55 PM

Bismack Biyombo has 16-6-3-2-2 on 6-of-6 shooting on Tuesday after 11-6-1-1-1 on Sunday.
He was signed on Saturday. – 10:19 PM

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
The Suns signed the Raptors playoff version of Bismack Biyombo to a 10-day hardship deal. – 10:16 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Biyombo dunk off Paul assist.
Fouled on play by Valanciunas.
Wow.
Has 16 on 6-of-6 shooting and five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two assists. – 10:16 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Brandon Ingram settling for a tough shot attempt over Chris Paul from beyond the FT line isn’t very good offense.
Meanwhile Chris Paul continues to make Bismack Biyombo look like a 30+ minute center.
🤷🏻‍♂️ – 10:15 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Like literally, Bismack Biyombo is taking over.
Has scored #Suns last 5 points after #Pelicans cut lead to 2.
Offensive rebound led to FTs
Blocked Ingram’s drive.
Then found Booker for 3.
#Suns up eight with 4:17 left.
Again, he’s trying to stay beyond this 10-day. #Suns10:12 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
I do not pretend to speak for Bismack Biyombo but I am guessing that he enjoys playing with Chris Paul.
Suns went to that two-man game the last couple possessions and it’s working. – 10:09 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Bismack Biyombo has given the Suns pretty great minutes at a pretty dire stretch of the season for the center spot. Hadn’t played a game in 10 months before this – 10:09 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Biyombo taking over.
Dunks inside on next trip.
Then gets offensive rebound and is fouled.
Splits FTs. #Suns up five.
Guy is playing like he wants to stay beyond 10 days. – 10:09 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
You did not have Bismack Biyombo fourth-quarter offensive force on your BINGO card. #Pelicans have been wise to hack him a couple times to send him to foul line – 10:09 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Who comes out of the timeout and scores for #Suns?
Devin Booker? Nope.
Mikal Bridges? Nah.
Bismack Biyombo. #Suns10:06 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Denied.
Brandon Ingram looked to dunk over Jalen Smith.
No that time.
#Suns up 95-89 as Booker and Biyombo enter game for Smith and Wainright. – 9:55 PM

Biyombo finishes inside Has eight. #Suns up 12 as Jones hits 3. – 9:45 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Next trip, Paul find Biyombo for bucket. Valanciunas answers.
#Suns up 10 as Bridges hits corner 3.
“Don’t let him shoot.” same Pelicans fan. – 9:39 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Jalen Smith, Devin Booker and Bismack Biyombo all with 3 fouls for Phoenix.
Brandon Ingram with 3 fouls for New Orleans. – 9:09 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Three fouls on Smith.
Biyombo in for Smith, who couldn’t believe he got called for that foul challenging Valanciunas. #Suns9:02 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Biyombo in, gets offensive rebound, finds Paul, who scores.
#Suns up 6. – 8:52 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns open 2nd quarter with Payton, Bridges, Payne, Biyombo and Jackson. – 8:41 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
I hope the “Feed DA” crowd has noticed how productive McGee, Stix, Biyombo, etc. have been — not as a knock on Ayton in any way, shape or form, but as a refutation of the idea that the Suns don’t run offense for him.
The system puts centers in positions to succeed – 8:33 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Watch Biyombo for a few possessions off the ball. It’s delightful. He tales every opportunity to bump his man and get better position for anything. Just a very strong man. – 8:31 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Monty Williams said he got to meet Bismack Biyombo through some NBA-related activities in Africa a few years ago and “had an affinity towards him just on the person he is.” – 7:32 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Suns depth was one reason they made 2021 #NBA Finals. With numerous players out of the lineup tonight, reserve group has very different look, with these players available: Paris Bass, Bismack Biyombo, Chandler Hutchinson, Justin Jackson, Cam Payne, Ish Wainright, MJ Walker – 6:44 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Bismack Biyombo and the Suns are a perfect fit for each other at the right time – https://t.co/a48mQ2FgSC via @PHNX_Suns pic.twitter.com/AWC0GcVDUV7:02 PM
