The Heat are not to be trifled with. They play hard and are coached well.

I hope Cam starts with Ayton. We haven't seen that starting lineup in a long time and I'm hopeful that it can boost the team to another level.
I’m actually going to blame you for this loss if we lose,

So much for tightening up the defense. This game is over.

Part of it is these guys can't miss. And we're just barely missing everything.
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

It's these effort games that piss me off.
This is an extremely frustrating game to watch but I don’t think it’s an effort issue. We are being thrown off by them launching threes at will and actually hitting them at will. Modern teams seem too used to just doing lazy switches and these Heat players are making us pay with even a smidge of space. Once we finally focus on the three point shooters we then miss cutters and drivers and it’s putting our defense into a mad scramble.

What bothered me more was that for 18 minutes we never bothered to punish them on the other end with our size. Got a little better towards the end of the half when DA got a few shots.

Look for defense to tighten and for the offense to have a bit more rhythm in the second.
Sorry, but in the first half, it was an effort issue. Poor defense and not blocking on rebounds against a smaller team.

27-18 rebounding lead for a shorter Heat team missing Butler and Adebayo.

Jersey Shore is shitting all over us from the 3 point line.

That was a HORRIBLE call to end the half.

Deleted. In hindsight, not an appropriate post.

Something is wrong with CP3 and has been for a while now: wonder if that hand is really bothering him

Some bullshit. Even if that was a horseshit call, we're letting them look like the fucking Globetrotters. Grow a pair and sack the hell up Suns. Some garbage.
And we looked like the Generals.

I watched it from start to finish much to my chagrin. That was a flusher. Thanks dude!

Cam Payne’s been really rough this year.

Monty got outcoached in this one. Jalen earned minutes but that lineup with him at the 4 was a mistake that really hurt us.

Booker 3-5 on 3s, 2-10 on 2s.

Crazy that he’s finally become the 3 point shooter we all wished he would be and immediately lost his mastery inside the arc.

You've got to give it up to the Heat. They were short handed but came in determined and hit everything. Another teaching moment for the Suns. Golden State, Boston, and now Miami. Suns know they've still got work to do.

Out played, out coached, out hustled, out reffed.

Can’t believe we gave up a gimmick win at home.

So many frustrating points to this game.

Ayton and Crowder weren’t ready to come back. Ayton got out played by a 10 day contract and it wasn’t even close. Frustrating is that he never gets upset/offended on the court by it. It’s always the next day or when the game is over.

Stix went back to scared little child form. WTF?

Spoelstra ran circles around Monty tonight. Embarrassing.

Bill Kennedy can jump off a bridge. Dudes an absolute clown shoe. WTF was he doing for 3 quarters. It’s like he popped a viagra and then put a whistle on.

Look forward to rooting against the Heat and all their fake stars the rest of the way. Congrats fellas. You’ll never do that again. Ever
