It's hard to watch Ayton play so badly while Luka is such a delight on the court tonight.
It really hasnt bothered me today, I'm enjoying watching the bench mob scramble around defensively.


Can Richaun Holmes be a starting NBA center?

Quincy Acy just took our first charge of the season.

Ayton is pressing now, c'mon kiddo.

Dallas has been damn near unbeatable at home so I didnt expect a win anyway.

We had a decent first half overall but that third quarter was pretty rough. They outscored us 32-19.

We get zero respect from them, that’s for sure.

I am so tired of watching this team get 20+ less FT attempts than the other team per game. Its such a bummer

Refs have been bad but our offense has been worse.
Go Suns!

The fouls are just comical at this point. Literally can’t even touch these guys. 41 FTs so far for the Mavs.

Kleber is giving them good minutes. I wouldn't be mad at us trying to steal him from the Mavs this summer.
He's going to have to drop that I in his name. Not rooting for a guy named Maxi. Ever.

Holmes with another stellar game. Love watching him.

Someone I hate watching, Igor. We're getting slaughtered with bad calls and Igor is just over there whispering about it. At some point this season I expect him to stand there raising his hand waiting to be a called on. He may be effective coaching European games but he can't coach for s*** in the NBA.

TJ got a couple points after the game was over but this is what I hate about him. He's never around when Booker isn't and the team needs a go to. His disappearing acts are maddening. He should demand rhe ball in these situations.

Ayton. My god. Disgraceful performance. I have this awful feeling that wel have the same complaints about him 3 seasons from now. There's just so much complacency about him. He's stuck in neutral most of rhe time.

It seemed like Dallas was in the bonus for the last 8 minutes of every quarter tonight. It was ridiculous.

Especially if he’s going to pad his stats.

I was just going to post essentially this exact same joke. I am sad now.

Maybe I can get a laugh if I just wait and re-post it in about 28 days.

The way the refs call our games is a joke. I mentioned it last week but Igor needs to lose his s*** at some point and get tossed or fined after a game calling out the refs. Or the FO needs to put a call into the league and send over examples of the refs screwing us.

“Defending the free throw game – we couldn’t defend the free throw line for whatever reason,” Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said. “That’s the game changer.”
Kokoskov has been criticized by Suns fans for "working the refs." He’s said it’s not his nature to do argue calls in a demonstrative fashion.

To him, it can be interpreted as for show, but behind the scenes, Kokoskov revealed Wednesday he and the Suns have been talking with the NBA about this very subject.

“We’re going into an area in which I wouldn’t go to deep in discussing it with the media, but we have a daily communication with the league office,” he said.

The players spent another night voicing their displeasure to the referees.

Then vented a little afterward.

“The last eight minutes of the game, I felt like they shot way too many free throws,” Suns wing Josh Jackson said. “Some questionable calls, but it is what it is. It’s the NBA. It happens every game.”
Go Suns!

rookie head coaches on awful teams can't show up the refs. It would be like Ayton yelling at the refs all game like the Warriors do. You can't do that when you suck or are a rookie. It won't go well.
