When a player is trapped why does a teammate never come over and help get the ball? This also happens when a player is on the floor struggling to not get tied up, and it drives me crazy.

We just still suck when teams double the ball…I don’t even know what we’re trying to do, but we need to do something else. They get aggressive in the 4th and play physical, trapping defenses and we just turn it over
They do have a really bad habit of being reactive rather than proactive.

I think they just need to go faster, drive the ball into the paint as quickly as possible with whomever. Doing it enough should lessen the time the defense has to prepare for their tactic on possessions when the Suns want to slow it down and hunt a mismatch or whatever.

Right after a frustrating loss. It's obnoxious.

Also not a coincidence that it happened right after his boys best two games of the season. This is the kind of stuff that makes people question your fandom Jeremy. Almost like you’re rooting for it to happen.

His first game missed due to injury all season. He's been a rock for us.

This team is so frickin’ frustrating! How can you outshoot your opponent by 20% and still lose?! I’ll tell you how. You’re careless with the ball and you can’t get a defensive rebound to save your life.
And don't shoot any 3s and don't hit your free throws. And continue walking the ball up so we only have 16 seconds of shot clock to work with. And iso-ing 1-on-5 for every single possession in the 4th.

The "no 3s" thing is insane. Our record difference when we get up 30 vs when we don't is huge. Everyone knows this. Yet they still won't shoot them.

And some of the turnovers today were just mind-blowingly bad. We started the 4th quarter by inbounding the ball to the other team right under our own basket.

And no one even tried to get the ball. KBD just stood there like he thought it was inbounded to someone else

Rooting for what, Nurk’s absence to be felt in a significant way? How does that even make sense?

I think it’s obnoxious that our starting center misses a game for a sprained thumb.

And yeah I’m definitely responsible for the timing of his injury. :roll:

I'm sure your medical and situation knowledge of Jusuf Nurkic's thumb injury is indubitable.

Don’t do that, you know exactly what you’re doing. He’s missed 1 game all year to injury. It was a garbage post and you’re better than that

No, you can’t. If he has sprained ligaments, he needs to rest it. If he has a game keeper thumb he’ll be out or limited for much longer.

Bruised ribs pose zero danger to playing through them.

That’s completely irrelevant. And he’s not exactly known as an ironman anyway.

NFL players do it all the time. Wasn’t that the argument before?

How is it going to magically be rested and healed by tomorrow night (Rankin saying he might play)?

Not sure what the hell I even watched. Stupid basketball from top to bottom. You're struggling for offense and Allen only gets 3 damn shots? Wtf offense you running Frank? Completely out coached.

The bench sucks. Can't keep pissing away games.

Looks pretty sus when you don't call out Ayton for pussing out of a game 6 elimination game vs 1 regular season game against an almost . 500 team. How many ice storms kept Nurkic out in the several seasons he played in Portland? Stop trolling.

The team has been too focused on getting Booker his at the expense of our other stars and role players finding a rhythm. I don't know if they're trying to get him into the All Star game but it's detracting from the team and the improvement we showed during the winning streak. Not a fan of these two games at all.
I couldn't agree more. They' d gone through a stretch of games where it looked as though they'd found the right balance when it comes to getting everyone involved. The only logical explanation for the recent Book centric offense is to get him into the all-star game as you say. I've no problem with that if we also get the W but picking up 2 losses in winnable games so that Book can get his flowers is ridiculous.
