The game is effectively over with the Suns up 16 under 2 minutes but you'd never believe it with some of the comments here.

Please tell me how a point guard would've helped stop the Nets score 33 points in the quarter. Maybe they have two fewer possessions? BFD.
Winning by 16 with no pg- 🤬🤬🤬🤬

Winning by 16 with a pg- 😍😍😍😍

Because the same problems cropped up again in the 4th quarter as they had a 19 point lead cut down to 12 midway through the period.

And won by 16.

Are you not satisfied unless they increase the lead in every 4th quarter?

Also, this idea that having a "point guard" on the floor automatically results in zero turnovers is silly.

Hate to see Nurk abusing our beloved Mikal... :(
Can you imagine our former center abusing a team like what Nurkic did to the Nets tonight?

Royce O’Neale playing like shit so his trade value goes down to making it easier for him to get traded for us. 8-) And
Yeah, THAT is the guy you’re all clamoring for?!

Scott Foster screws us again! :P
I didn’t notice him until the 2nd quarter. He doesn’t impact the game nearly as much when Chris Paul isn’t playing on your team.

Nice win tonight. Glad to get it for KD and put us above .500 on the road. We handled this 4th quarter much better. But let me just say we dodged a bullet since Simmons couldn’t go.

Haven't heard that one in at least 3 years.

I don’t this was a case of our usual type of 4th quarter collapsing, this was just a nets team playing desperate. We missed some wide open shots that would’ve made the nets give up sooner if they fell. They finally started to fall and the nets gave up.

Some dumb turnovers from KD, but that would’ve happened no matter what cuz he’s a dumb ass. A point guard wouldn’t have matter because KD was making the same turnovers last year when we had Chris freaking Paul.

Yeah, a couple sloppy passes from him and one from Nurk.

Shout out to Not My Favorite Player. I’m a big fan of his last two games. That’s the guy I couldn’t believe would sign for the veteran minimum.

another solid game by Okogie: 11 pts, 7 rebs.

My only complaint is nonchalant, sloppy passes, often occurring when Suns have a double digit lead.
It's the veterans that are guilty -- that's infuriating.

Missed the game…so we’re calling for a pg again in a game we scored 136 points on 79 shots with 35 assists? I’ll never understand the we need a pg argument.

In the huddle Frank said they wanted to score 30 in the 4th, which they did. The Nets are bad but they looked like the aggressor in the 4th. The Suns were still trying hard to win the quarter. I suppose if you don't count the 2 garbage buckets they did.

I think the complaints here are that we don't want the team to be the worst 4th quarter team in the league, which they currently are. It's a valid complaint.

It’s so dumb. I made the mistake of listening to a few minutes the halftime show. Suns had 64 points but Kendrick Perkins contended that the Suns needed a point guard because Bradley Beal’s body language was bad.

(Never mind Beal’s minutes and touches that this magical PG would likely take)
