If this stuff keeps happening with the officials I'm going to start believing the narrative that the officials hate Sarver.

If the Suns had just kept up their FT average, we would have won this one.

The Suns coaches should have brought it up to the referees. No excuse for not reviewing the clock and making it right after the foul. Losing an entire second is criminal.

I mean why would Donaghy be lying about it?

Our clock operator should be fired. One second is all we need to have a chance to win the game and it was taken away from us. You play 48 minutes of that kind of basketball then you can't allow sloppy time keeping like that. If you watch, at a minimum of an extra second went off the clock after the foul.

This one really hurt. I was there and the amount of jazz fans in the arena was infuriating.

We had so many opportunities to put this one away and should’ve had one more. Gobert was shooting like the f*** second coming of Nash.

Like others have said I’m proud of the fight and competitiveness of this team but it’s still disheartening to lose close games.

I really enjoyed watching Booker take the challenge of defending Mitchell(who I think is actually pretty overrated) at the end while Mitchell shied away from that matchup on the other end.

I was actually puzzled by that. I had heard them throughout the game but when that final foul was called, the crowd erupted. For a second, I thought the game was in Utah. I've heard that at a Suns/Lakers but not that loud before for Suns/Jazz in TSRA.

Idk if this is controversial to say but I think it’s because of the large Mormon population here in the east valley.

It can't be controversial if it's a fact, can it?

Suns could easily be 4-0 right now. To have two 1-point losses hurts this early in the season.

This team didn't get their 2nd win until game #9 a year ago, so they are better. Oh well, off to Golden State.
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !

Yep. Get it done. Can afford that crap in the big leagues

People will say it doesn’t matter being so early in the season.
The fact that it can happen is the issue

So close. Their shots weren’t falling and once again a million fouls called. And yet they still almost won. The Suns have only lost two games and each one by 1 point. Sucks that we lost but, this Suns team doesn’t suck.

F it. We're 4-0 in my book.

The league owes us and it knows it. I'll be we start seeing the refs go easier on us going forward.

So far in this young season, we also seem to be leading the league in moral failures.
