That’s laughable. Suns try to foul and they don’t call it. SMH

I hate how they held Giannis’s hand to the finish line.

My worst fear now that we lost is CP3 joining LeBron and the lakers.
I highly doubt it for several reasons.

There is no way that CP3's injuries didn't play a critical role in the Suns blowing Game 5. He is going to need surgery on both hands I would guess.

It’s been a great season and Paul’s coming back, so we’re in good shape for next year.

Go suns, super proud.

And well played bucks .. it wasn’t the refs, we just lucked out losing Saric against such a tall team.

More like signing a 3 year supermax with us.

They'd only lost once with a lead at halftime. This game was for the taking, just like games 4 and 5.

What? You think he's taking a $30 million paycut to sign for an exception?

to be honest I don't want to sign Paul long-term... if we can get some assets in a S&T we should do it and find our PG of the future.

Yeah, that's more concerning. I want Paul back, but not if it means they have to rely on more Frank Kaminsky's.

I know they had the best player on both sides, but Giannis isn't Jordan, and there was no Pippen.

This game (and this series) was so winnable.

Ugh.

Those refs were fucking garbage. Fuck the NBA. Giannis had more FTs than our entire fucking team. What a scam job. Fuck the NBA.

Edit: I joined the game late and was just looking at the FT discrepancy. It appears we played some bad basketball beyond the FT difference.

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

I'm happy for the Bucks players. There isn't anyone on their roster that I dislike.

Bucks fans, on the other hand, they can fuck off.

Remember that possession (game 2?) Where we passed the ball around a lot for a neat and-1 lay-in? I miss those times.

Paul had a good gam, although the had was obviously bothering his, but Ayton certainly had the yips on offense, Crowder and Booker didn't shoot the ball well and Bridges did his road disappearing act on offense.

Hard to believe Payne didn't get more minutes after that terrific first half he had.

They get away from that way too much.

And now we can say that is when the 2020-21 Phoenix Suns peaked.

Milwaukee was just a bad matchup for them.

You didn't want Ayton to have to try to guard Giannis the entire game, but that's what it basically came down to because of need. Anybody else they tried didn't work and Ayton couldn't do much with him either.
