Just throwing the ball up so we couldn’t foul.

Tough game to win with booker missing the 2nd half. I think we probably win with him. One of the better Jackson games of the season! Hopefully we play well Tuesday against Sacramento

Why did Kemba shoot a 3-pointer at the buzzer with a 3-point lead?
Who cares?

I don’t understand why people complain about winning teams hitting meaningless shots at the end.

Another game, another opposing center putting up All-Star numbers. This time it was Willy putting up 19-9-4-1 on .667 fg.

When we played LAC on Dec 10th, that’s the last time a Suns opponent didn’t have a center put up All-Star numbers. It’s been almost a month.

Don’t think I complained about anything, just asked why he would.

Kevin Rays voice tonight was the epitome of the Suns season. Awful and should have just stayed away from the arena.

The thing that made me laugh though was after the game when they interviewed Marvin Williams and he said the Suns were well coached :lol: Yeah Marv, we coached our way to those 8 wins.

At least we were in a game from start to finish. It’s been a while. I hate to blame reffing but this one sure seemed one-sided.

We've legit been getting screwed by the refs most of the season. I wish Igor would lay into them more during games to even out some calls.

We could've easily won this game, even without Book, but we just give away possessions with stupid shots. Too many to count last night. And we still love watching Ayton chase guys like Kemba and Tony Parker around the perimeter just to foul them near the basket or watch the opposing big get rebounds and putbacks. We can't keep switching him onto guards and having him guard out at 22 feet.

I thought Melton played well and has been coming along nicely. He had some good defensive possessions and was big on the boards. TJ and Josh had good games, Josh with one of the better games of his career. Jamal provided some instant offense for us, less playmaking. Good effort overall but we need to change the defense already.

Particularly when it was a halfcourt heave. Most players are worried about stats and don't want to throw up that kind of meaningless shot.

I just don't take anything from opposing teams saying good things about our team, including the coaching. I think it's just lip service and I don't believe that they actually believe it. Besides, I've said it before, but it feels like we could position a cardboard cutout of Igor with his hands on his hips near the scorers table and no one would notice a difference in the coaching.

I also don't know what to think about Prunty. He's either a vital part and positive effect on the coaching staff, or he's a total negative with too much influence, imo.

At this point the endless losses are just getting depressing. Despite all the flaws with this roster and team, we should be better than this.

The biggest glaring problem I see is the Swiss Cheese defense. During the winning streak they were playing much better defense. Teams are back to destroying them in the paint.

Listening to Kevin Ray was tough. After a minute of listening to him try to talk I knew he would never make it through the whole game. He would either be replaced or I would have to turn the sound down.

I don’t care about the last shot. He was trying to run out the clock and avoid being fouled and just hoisted a shot towards the other end as time was running out and it just happened to go in. Watch the replay. He took the shot and immediately started walking towards the other end and didn’t even look to see if it went in. He was surprised as anyone.

Wouldn't you need some cars in the parking lot to thread them?

If Booker doesn't get hurt, that's a Suns win.
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !
