Man just so disappointed

Can't really explain the officiating but game should have never been this close.
Our inability to adjust to the zone was frustrating
The starters play was not good
Don't like the fact that Monty didn't really trust the bench in the 2nd half
The awful truth is this poor effort might have a domino effect with Pacers on tap tomorrow and the team wasting all this energy

Wow.....
First low point of the season for sure

Second for me. The effort to start the game in the first loss of the season against the Kings was inexcusable.

Paul needs to learn to play the system ASAP. This dribbling for 10 seconds between the legs deal needs to stop

Yes the effort was terrible but I guess my thing is that at least there's legit talent on Kings they just shoot themselves in the foot too often
I'm sorry but this Pistons team is no good. I mentioned in another thread that I have to give props to Jerami for showing his abilities after his pay day but man Blake looks old and man I don't even care to rant tbh

So we’ve had multiple games with like 2:1 fouls or foul shots against us. You maybe want to look into this also/ adjust or just bend over and keep taking it ? It’s ok what’s another decade of this shit.

This officiating is an absolute shit show.
This L is on us. Not the refs. We’re just going to iso dribble down the clock and take 3s all night. Fucking run the offense dude. Enough.

This has been obvious for several games. Coach didn’t do shit about it though. Once again we get seduced by early season wins.

It’s time to be a coach and demand CP3 play the system. Honeymoon period ended tonight

What he said. Or at least make in game adjustment for once. Never going to win a play off series without the ability to adjust. Some of the worst coaching from Williams ever.
I don’t want to hear crap about ‘we need to get better’. What you need to do is win. We are better than the pistons and yet you continuously shit the bed. All they had was size and you played right into it chump. This has losing streak written all over it. Will put some coin on the pacers tomorrow.

I never said the Suns lost because of the refs. My point was that the refs were not doing their job well.

They say live and die by the three. EJ said we’re in great shape because when the three isn’t falling the Suns have a great mid range game. They just kept bombing away from three. We have seen this more than once since the season started. Ayton is looking pretty manly lately. Booker needs to dump that girl and play basketball.

You play with fire, you get burned.

I lay this one totally on the starters. We would have been better off sticking with our bench players tonight.

Had to go check ESPN play by play
It was 54 - 31 with 6:07 left in the half !!

Those 6mins were a real mood killer
Wow
These 18mins been a real mood killer
I had a big grin on my face during the second quarter and then they’ve got got to ruin it all. :(

If the Pistons lose, they have only themselves to blame.
Other way around.

This was a professional loss of the likes we haven't seen in almost a year.
It was an early lowpoint in a good season start. We don’t deserve best record in the West after this one. The starters need to wake up.
