Booker with a pretty good line but he missed 2 3's at the end to make it a game.

Ayton the player of the game for us, an ORB for a bucket and a nice spin off a pass from Paul for the and 1 towards the end.

Gonna be tough if Crowder, Johnson and Bridges don't give you much offense - 89 Min, 6/22 FG, 20 Pts

Well, they won’t have much chance with George playing like this. How do you stop that?

Make him give the ball up. Make somebody else beat you.

Try anything and everything.

You can't - 15-24fgs and 7-10 3's from everywhere with anyone on him including a pretty wild buzzer beater. Just one of those days.

I thought Ayton might be able to contain him but he was shooting over him as well .. when you're hot you're hot (but let's see PG do it in the playoffs when it counts..).

Wow. Johnson finally makes one to cut it to 7 at the end of the third.

Geez. Ibaka with back to back 3s. Maybe we should guard him?

Looks like you were right In2, Book on PG to start
Looks like that was a bad call. He started out on fire and kept going. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Booker tends to help off his man maybe too far and/ or just can't get back fast enough to contest the inevitable open 3? Seen it so many times this yr.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Well, at least I got my close game. Not in the way I expected. Just shows that it takes a lot of energy to come back from a big deficit. There were some key mistakes at the end there. Our players won’t be happy about it. Gotta learn from it.

I feel like if Paul made the 2, Book hit the 3 or DA even made his free throw we coulda gone to the wire... all our stars had their chance .. wasn't to be... love that we fought back, i thought this was going to be one to forget.

Tough game. Great comeback but should never have let them get that far ahead. Mikal Cam and Jae struggled. This was nice to see the comeback. This was easily DAs best game. The attitude was great and the FTA encouraging.

Yeah, definitely a learning experience. Can’t come out with low energy and expect to win. A big positive is the comeback. When the Clippers were losing big this season, they lost big. The Suns fought back.

Suns just got punched in the mouth. They have to stay competitive regardless of the score.
Despite how much a loss hurts, it was great to see them fight back (and not just because they chucked 3s all game and they started falling).
