The refs are just as bad tonight. I think Book's gotten a reputation for selling fouls or flailing/flopping so they don't give him the benefit of the doubt.
I like to think that’s the reason sometimes but then I remember how many calls guys like Luka, Trae, Harden and even CP3 get and it doesn’t make sense. He just doesn’t get calls other guys get.

Jerami Grant would have been a great offseason target. He didn't even cost that much.
Crowder Trade Targets: Kuzma or Avdija, J. Isaac, J. Holiday + Jalen Johnson, Quickley + Reddish, Clarkson and/or Vanderbilt, Barnes + Lyles or Metu or T. Davis, E. Gordon + KJ Martin, Patrick Williams, Oubre, McConnell + Brissett

Why Dario isn't getting more minutes?

Suns win big. Back on top of the Western Conference where they belong. Hope we make a move to shore up the PF spot soon tho.
Go Suns!

Wonder if Crowder would play now that he can get his starting slot back.

Left with 5 minutes left in the 4th. Great defense. Ass whooping tonight letting Portland know we didn't take them seriously last night. 14 blocks?!

A tale of two nights. A much better defensive effort from start to finish tonight.

Refs missed several obvious calls tonight but I think in general it wasn’t so bad as they definitely didn’t swallow the whistle against the Blazers this time.

Nice blowout, kind of expected after Friday. Glad the starters got some rest in the 4th. Craig held down the PF spot but I'm not sure I trust it long term. Dario had a solid line and it was good to see him get some extended minutes but he's got less lift than before the injury. Not sure Monty will be able to trust him as a backup 4.

Lee continues to look good and impacts the game well. Even when his shot isn't falling, he knows how to move and cut off the ball and is a pest defensively. He also slashes well and gets into the lane, even if the results are sometimes ugly. With Craig starting, his energy and hustle can stand out more off the bench. As much crap as Jones has gotten for the PF spot, Londale and Lee were both really underrated pickups and have helped solidify our bench.

Disappointed again with Mikal on offense. He may be affected by CamJ not out there spreading the floor, but he's still gotta be able to create some offense on his own. Last night should've been an opportunity to get him more touches.
