Someone explain to me where the foul was there? How was that upheld?

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Ayton sure has hit the rookie wall hasn’t he?
I don't even care anymore. I'm tired of all of it. Tired of the apologists. Tired of the excuses. Tired of the same quotes and stories but all the coaching and motivating everyone is doing to get him to progress.

I just ignore it all.

Book not really getting any calls tonight..can’t tell if he’s getting fouled or just acting, but he usually gets a little more love from the refs.
Edwards as a rookie already gets more calls than Booker.

Cue the obligatory "last time the Suns allowed two 40-point scorers was" stat...

Nice job tonight. 10 turnovers in the first quarter. This team has the most frustrating losses, sometimes they play like they think they’ve arrived.

They were not ready to play tonight and you can't really say they were looking past the Timberwolves because they play them again tomorrow.

An embarrassment to the coaches and the players.

Impossible. Not with savvy veterans like Chris Paul and Jae Crowder.

Hey Monty - that's why you foul when you have a three-point lead on the final possession.

Why wouldn’t we challenge that foul that looked like it should be a jump ball?! I don’t get it.

A bunch of pyros. This team loves to play with fire and get burned. Blew a chance to gain on the Jazz. SMH.

I guess I missed that. I must have FF through it. Was it successful?
