Called it.
So what does that make you, 1-14?
I feel like you are on the warpath tonight😅
Some of these comments are fucking absurd. The Suns are tied 2-2 in the NBA Finals where both teams won their home games.
Dude, it *is* the Finals. Every game feels/is a momentum shift, and I feel that some people's emotions shift with the games. Yours don't. And I envy that.

As an aside, I honestly feel like I would have felt kinda gross if we had won the game tonight after the non-call on Booker.

If I weren't a Suns fan, the NBA would be that much harder for me to both follow and watch.
I get worked up too, trust me on that. But it's not hard to take a breath before posting.

Feels like a game where the Bucks will win in the finals seconds. I keep saying it because it’s true but someone needs to step up that isn’t Book.

I don’t know why my comment would count as absurd when it was it was 100% accurate. Suns win this if Chris Paul just has a mediocre game. I know my comments can be negative during the game, but outside of Book, no had it tonight. Cam Johnson was a bright spot but not enough to move the needle. 100% confident we win game 5. I’ll do avatar bets, I don’t give a shit. We winning game 5.

Also, is Ayton really going to be awesome all playoffs and then go back to regular season Ayton with only 2 wins to go? He has not been good the last 2
I missed most of the first half, so maybe there was something there as evidence of your point.

He defended Giannis about as well as anyone could. 17 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 blocks is a lot better than his regular season form.

Can be negative? You're outright depressing during basically every game.

I honestly don't mind posts about how your feeling during the game, but to be negative every game and then the one time it ends in your "favor" you toss out a "called it"? That's lame.

No hard feelings, Wally.

The other guy I won't mention. He can fuck off.

I thought Ayton was on his way to a monster game in game 3 but fouls did him in and couple of those were pretty bullshit. Offensively he was bad tonight tho but I thought he was good defensively tonight.

Man I can't believe how close I was to being all smug about Book's bounce back game
Bummer

After the no call for his 6th, I legit cringed because I know the media n everyone would have change the narrative from his All Time Finals performance to the Bucks getting screwed by that missed call. That coverage would have been unbearable too and more How we're lucky chatter

Still at a lost for words for CP3 tho
We all wanted us to push the pace but I never seen him so outta control as a result, seemed like he sped up his own self too much plus having to deal with Holiday. He simply has to bounce back tho, can't see him after all these years of waiting for a Finals appearance to play another game like this

It's pretty bad if you venture into neutral territory. The consensus is the officiating was terrible but with a heavy emphasis on the fouls not called on Booker. Lots of people talking about his "8 fouls".

Paul just doesn't play nearly as well when the team needs to play with a higher pace. He loses composure too often when he's not allowed to control the tempo. I kind of get it with his ball handling and passing, but to also miss shots like he did in this game is a bit strange.

We haven't lost three games in a row since January. Is that streak going to end in the NBA Finals?

What pisses me off is that , even with a horrendous game from every non Armani player on this team, we still had it till the last Paul turnover.
And we should play more Cam Johnson.

Here's the thing to remember when hearing all the media takes about the 6th foul not called on Booker; no one is going to talk about the credibility of the previous 5 fouls.

Just bare with me guys
I'm here at work and my Boss gonna ask me again How come I punched out so late but here still in a daze and dwelling on the game. When I watch it over I will be more bothered about turnovers and offensive rebounds n so on.

When the lead got to 9 late in the 3rd I was really trying not to get too carried away but guess I did. I started imagining everything, the Championship DVD "after his worst playoff game Devin Booker was eager to....." , seeing myself watching it over on ESPN Hardwood Classics lol

Man oh Man lol
Anyways 2 Best of 3 it is

Probably not completely fair. I’ve just gotten used to near perfect play from him. He defended Giannis well, but he just missed a lot of easy buckets on offense. The Bucks pulled down like 15 offensive rebounds too. Not entirely on Ayton, but there were a couple he should have gotten. Also noticed him do his patented grab the slower guy in transition while Giannis streaks up the floor uncovered or defended by a guard.

So not a full regular season Ayton, but glimpses of it.
Thad Young please

And hardly anyone will talk about how good he was on offense for us…though losing the game also kinda does that.

Well dude here showing his Lakers colours with this tweet. I don't know much about him but it seems more sarcastic than genuine to me.

Either way that has to be a first for DA
Yikes man

Feels like Middleton's smoked Bridges all series.
Exactly. Did the Ghost score after 1st quarter? I rarely even see a hand in the face of Middleton. Bridges had 2 fouls and if he would foul out it would not be a loss. At least knock Middleton on his ass once in a while. That happens to Booker a lot.

If we give this guys the $25 Million per year that is being thrown around by some, I will throw up. He just ain't worth it. I have heard about what a winner he is and how he won twice at Villanova. He is in the NBA finals and he needs to earn the pay check he is getting now.
I wanted Monty as our coach since D'Antoni left town. Nice choice James Jones.
