Of course the Suns season would end on a missed shot at the buzzer

Run down the clock for a 23 foot step back?

My heart was pounding with agony at the end there. I feel so bad for the Suns players.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Yeah, we couldn’t ask more from the Nets, including sending back LeVert. Our guys will hace to learn from today heart breaking finish, that you make your fortune everyday, not on miraculous closings.

Props to the Nets. They don’t have quit.

Yaaa.

Well...at least we got what I was hoping for -- a late-season run reminiscent of the Mavs before they were in the playoffs for 20 years. It bodes well for the future.

Saw that last shot by LaVert a few more times. He could've easily driven right and had a closer shot or Joe Harris wide open if Trent helped on the drive.

Instead he went for the hardest shot possible, a step back 22-footer. So frustrating.
