This was Josh Jackson’s fault somehow

Is it? It’s summer league. A bunch of rookies, bench warmers and players who might never play a NBA game had an off game and lost to other rookies, bench warmers and players who might never play a NBA game by 2pts.

Yeah it’s not that embarrassing. I’m more worried if Okobo is okay

Perhaps we missed Josh Jackson on defense today

Down the stretch Harrison clearly got fouled on a drive in the open floor and made the basket. The defender gave him a push with both hands right in front of the ref that wasn't called. Should've been an easy and-1.

We didn't deserve to win, no one really showed up. Shaq played well again defensively but we relied on him too much offensively. Reed was the only other one who can create his own shot it seemed. I still think it's a mistake if we get rid of him because of his ability to handle the ball and break down a defense. Bridges hasn't really shown much in that area, Jackson's iffy once he breaks down the D. I also thought we should've made more of a concerted effort to get Ayton and/or Bender the ball in the post more. Problem is our guys use the worst angles to throw entry passes.

Like everyone else said, we cruised thru this one and didn't deserve to win. Whatever. Would've been nice to see Ayton or Bridges get fired up and take control at some point. Ayton could learn to be more assertive/dominant.

For some reason I feel like we're kinda sleepwalking thru this one. Not the same pop and bounce as the last game.
I tried to tell you guys that Josh Jackson was our MVP. ;)

I think Ayton got up to play against Bamba. They look like they are over summer league
Yep, we looked bored and had none of the defensive intensity from before. The team figured they could sleep walk through the 30th seed.

I'm glad we are down in the 4th
I hope Ayton n Bridges stay in cause I want to see how they respond especially Ayton who hasn't made an impact so far
Ayton did not impress tonight.

Play their last game tomorrow at 3:30 on NBA TV against the Spurs. What a letdown.

Harrison easily the best on our team at the moment.
Reed would like to have a word with you. He's the one who started to give a damn after the timeout at 5:00 when the Suns were down by 10.
Reed can try talking to me all he wants, I'm not listening.

PS-How'd you like that And 1?
How'd you like that turnover?
The one that Bridges couldn't catch? It was a great pass.
He was fouled on the reach in by Smith but no call of course.

Only thing I am upset about is that the Suns could have used a few more games. Dragan is just getting into the groove.

Hope Okobo is ok.

You know it was a playoff summer league game right m?

Nobody gives a **** if they had lost in the last 3 games which were all regular summer league games.

But this is playoffs so now instead of getting 4 more games we get one consolation game in the loser’s bracket.

76ers were the worst ranked summer league (30th) while the Suns were the 3rd.

If you follow NCAA’s March Madness you would understand if this is embarrassing or not.

All this excitement and I’m stuck in an airport for 11 hours in Sydney.

That should give Ayton some more needed time to work on his shoe contracts.

Doncic had as much impact for Dallas tonight as Ayton did for us.
Ayton - Doncic - Booker - Do your freaking job Ryan!

So many frustrating things on that final play.

1. The no call for Smith's foul on Bridges.

2. Bridges should have stayed at the three point line and let Shaq drive it to the hoop like he had been doing.

3. Shaq should have dumped it off behind him to Ayton, who was in great position to dunk it to send the game to overtime.

At least we don't have a bunch more games increasing our chances of injuries.

Funny, people said this when I called Chriss being a bust within a month of regular season....

People don't like the ugly truth but doesn't change it from still being the truth.

Bridges played really well and he seems to have an extremely high basketball IQ as well already as a rookie.
