Nice to be on this side of "shooting the lights out" - shooting 64 percent from 3. Oh and Oubre with the nasty flush after the nice dish from Cam. Wow

Oubre with another idiotic taunting technical.

Oubre yammed on Gobert and did his headbob. Refs called a BS tech, Mitchell missed the FT because ball don't lie. The T was worth it.

Terrible call...wasn’t even looking at Gobert, said nothing, he does that head nod all the time. Shouldn’t have been a tech.

You do it in front of the defender like that you're going to get it called on you.

Not the first time.

Here we go bringing the starters back with 7 minutes left and slowing things down, playing not to lose.

Bridges with a huge putback dunk off a Rubio miss. This is one of his better all around games in a while.

Poor Elie Okobo is a -12 in 9 minutes in a game his team is winning by 15. Ouch.

He does it all the time. I’ve never actually seen him get a tech for it. He literally hit Draymond with his hair once when he did it. It never has anything to do with his opponent, it’s just what he does, it’s part of what fuels him.

Let's not blame Kelly just because the refs were trying to fix the game.

This referees did all they could short of starting shooting to the Suns’ basket, but the team didn’t lose it’s temper and kept fighting. Sometimes you have to believe in karma, as we suddenly had a functional bench making baskets and a nice revenge night from Rubio. Great win, kind of pulled off from Wrestlemania or something like that, (perhaps they only lacked on allowing the Jazz to break a chair on a Suns player) but even more enjoyable because of that at the end. From the laughings in the third by Gobert and Mitchell as Ayton collected two quick fouls to the same guys on the bench with a WTF face after the score keep widening open and Snyder throw the towel.

That was one of our most impressive wins of the season. Fun game to watch. They played with energy and were moving the ball. Rubio had a great night. Pretty much everybody contributed. Loved the putback dunk by Bridges.

These refs are incredibly bad.
I truly believe that there will be a Donaghey type conspiracy that surfaces some day involving this season. You can’t watch a game right in front of your face and confidently make the calls that are being made. This is happening league wide.

I have loved the difference in Aytons energy and focus out there lately. Got in foul trouble but it felt like he did everything with purpose and that he understood more of what he was going to do. I’m finally seeing the progress I was hoping for

I think this was the best win of the season. Great energy from the jump, even though we got down early. Contributions across the board. Played big and small successfully. Refs were awful. 3rd road game in 4 nights. Blowout win in a tough environment. Super satisfying watch. Cherry on top was no Matt Harpring on the Jazz Broadcast.
