Yep. these are hard to take and I hate to watch this team lose. But I think it's almost better to lose some of these to keep them hungry. Keep them working hard. That's gonna force everyone from coach on down to improve.

Sucks but gotta take these Ls to get better. Need to learn how to step up and make shots, defend without fouling during winning time.
Plenty of opportunities down the stretch to score or make stops.

Two losses, both by a single point, both with the refs taking sides against us. I don’t know whether to feel proud or furious.

This is a playoff team. Plain and simple. Won’t believe otherwise until this team is a officially out at the end of the year. If this team can keep it close or above .500 when Ayton comes back, I believe this team could go on an absolute tear to finish off the season.

And I hope watching this team is making a fire smolder inside of DA.

Ayton coming back will be a huge shot in the arm.

We had a time out and should have 1.8 seconds on the clock.
Absurd they didn't reviewed.

As frustrated as I am with MLB umpiring, at least I have the NBA officiating to remind me that it could be worse.

We've been getting f*** by the refs for so long I'm just used to it. I almost don't know what to do when an even game is called.

Refs sucked but this was a winnable game and the Suns had so many chance to pull away. This is a good team learning to be good. Booker is a star on his first absolute legit team. Mistakes are gonna happen. Just a bummer but still proud of this team.

Should have had some time there for a game winner, but pretty bad foul there by booker. Gifted them the win.

I’d prefer him to never play against the Jazz again. His play against Gobert gives me nightmares.

I stopped watching after the Oubre miss because I knew a foul call would decide it. Bingo.

Suns still controlled their own fate largely in this one
Some sloppy offensive towards the end didn’t hurt. Need to run some set plays. We just seemed a little over excited. Funny this team is so close to being 4-0.

Teams can actually go to the league about referring right? Solid trends so far in the initial games that have been a very significant factor. With inside the game coming out, it’s a bad time to have such a disparity against the suns.

No review of the time and no timeout given. Every game has taken like 4 hours because of all the foul calls. What gives?

Ya, but the league will just admit that the refs screwed up. Nothing else they can do about it now.

What the hell?! There were at least 1.4 seconds left on the clock when the foul happened and another second ran off the clock. Did they bring in the Utah time keeper to run the clock or something? How can the refs let that happen?
