Give it up already, Bucks. You’re going to lose. Face facts. Ridiculous late foul game.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. (Note: Requires full 82 game season.)

Suns 7-9 from three to start the game, double digit lead most of the 1st but the Bucks are without Freak and are adjusting. Middleton is warming up and he's the guy who will pick up the slack.
Big whoop. We were without Ayton, Oubre, and Cam.

Since Mori has been asleep at the wheel as the driver of the Rubio Fan Club, I'll pick up the slack:

Last 10 games

14 ppg
9.6 apg
4.7 rpg
2.4 spg
3.1 tpg
45.8% FG
40.6% 3PT
I appreciate it INF. Rubio with another monster game today of 25 points, 13 boards, 13 assists, and 3 steals.

Wow. How many 25/13/13 games have there been in Suns history? Has there ever been another 25/13/13/3 game for our team?

I was going to say something similar. In just about every recap I read, the lead graph mentions that the Bucks were without Giannis Antetokounmpo, but then saying nothing about the Suns missing Ayton, Oubre (that's two starters, sports fans) and a Cam off the bench.

Cry me a river, Milwaukee. :P :P :P :P
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

You guys are really comparing the league MVP to a borderline All-Star and two rotation role players?

It's clearly not the same, but for a talent shallow team it's a big deal to not have those 3 and Kaminsky.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Good win. Regardless of who's on the Bucks, they're a good team and no-one sheds a tear for the Suns when they have players out, so we should take this one and enjoy it.
I was worried when the Bucks got it back to about 6 in the last term, but the Suns went on a 9-0 run or something and did what needed to be done from there. To show that kind of poise against a well-drilled, very good defensive team with the record Milwaukee has was very positive.

The best part of the game was that the Bucks play tomorrow night. The Bucks closed the gap just enough to keep their starters in to the bitter end and they still lost. Now they will be super tired tomorrow and lose again.

Why are you rooting against the Bucks in the east? Or are you just hoping the Nuggets can catch the Clippers in the west?

My favorite part of the game was when the Bucks cut it to under 10. We took stock and manned up and played out the game well. There was some sloppiness in the last 90 seconds or so, though.

My favorite stat of his last night was just 1 TO.
