We don’t deserve to win this game to be honest. Losing to this team potentially 3 straight times is just fucking brutal tho

I’m not that mad by the loss but yeah the travel was so obvious.

How do we still not have a good strategy for when Book is doubled?
Part of that is still on Booker, he just loses his mind when he gets doubled, like he forgets how to play basketball.

Thank God I have tickets to the game tomorrow night. This one would have pissed me off.

I don’t think it was on Booker…they clearly have a strategy in place. Bridges is supposed to cut middle and Booker feeds him. It’s just slow and clunky and gives the opponent plenty of time to respond. Bridges also panicked when he got the ball.

I don't understand how you can review the play and not be able to call the travel or that the game clock clearly didn't start on time.

Bad calls but Ayton needs to make sure he turns around in time to see where the ball is going.

Saw it again, Book should’ve gotten the ball to Paul. Paul’s man follows Bridges as he cuts middle, Paul comes up on the left wing uncovered. Probably could’ve walked into an 18-footer.

Yeah, he needs to read doubles coming better. Pass to open man. Final step to true top-SG status and top 3 player, perhaps.

Suns should smack this Blazers squad today.
So, you’re the one who is to blame.

You can just tell we didn’t take this seriously coming in but it does feels like one of those games we’ll play like dog shit for 3 quarters, it’s then come back in the 4th and win.
Or was it you?
