Frustrating shot by Lavert at the end, he was scoring at will in the paint and he takes a 22 foot step back? Still, I can’t be too mad, he played like a stud all game! Thank you Caris for giving a damn. Thank you Brooklyn for your effort, that was quite a ride!

If we can be frustrated with another team it's the Bucks morons. Nets grinded til the end.

All I've been doing is saying fuck over and over again for the past while. Obviously, being compounded by other life events at the moment, but this is the cherry.

Just reflecting on all the agony and disappointment through the years as a Suns fan since the Barkley era. Can’t recall a time where we missed playoffs in the last day of the season because of another team winning their last game. Maybe it has happened but I would all but guarantee not in that dramatic of fashion.

Only worse ending could have been Dame hitting a Come from behind 3 at the buzzer. Caris missing a jumper like that would be a close second.

I’m m proud of this years teams but being a Suns fan has been extremely hard.

The Trey Burke offensive foul and Caris LaVert taking a bad shot for the game winner were both lucky breaks for the Blazers. If either of those plays goes the other way, the Suns are playing against Memphis.

That was such a painful game to watch. Such a great way to end the bubble for the NBA (albeit not for us Suns fans). If it would have been a 10 game tournament, Memphis wouldn't be playing. Not sure we would have made it, but I know they would have fallen more. Also, too bad the teams weren't playing each other more.

I love him but hate that it was him we were up against. No way was he losing that game. He's about as unstoppable as anyone in the league.

We ended our season by playing like shit in too many games the first 60. The run in the bubble was fantastic, and about as much fun as I have had watching Suns basketball in a decade. But it was just a few weeks, and we set ourselves up for failure.

I didn't comment much during the game, but I was really impressed by LaVert. I had heard of him before but not really watched him because the Nets suck. He's very impressive. That Nets team might be pretty good once they get Kevin Durant back.

You might have also heard of a guy named Kyrie Irving.
