I’m sorry Book, you showed up here when it mattered!

They changed it to two, but never mind.
After playing like dog poop, Booker gets hot when they needed him.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

Embiid almost made the most ridiculous shot of all time

Wild game. Embiid almost ties it on a full court heave. Paul carried us until Book sealed it. Bridges with a good game on offense, Cam Johnson and Craig with good minutes, DA a little quiet but did the best he could on Embiid I thought.

God quality win. These guys are going to give me a heat attack with all these close games and wild plays at the buzzer.

Cam Johnson has been looking better and better. I'd love to see him get more minutes, but I don't know who Monty would take them from.

Booker had a really bad 3rd quarter.

I’m not sure why Paul was missing that ft anyways. A made ft puts you up 4.

Monty said he didn’t think it was...just looked unusually short for CP3

No, he wouldn't miss that free throw intentionally. Making it would have made it a two-possession game.

I still wouldn't have waved towards the Philly bench smh lol but Book knows Thybulle had him good even if he will not say it for anyone to hear
He actually played smart for the most part, just have to tip the hat to Thybulle. Surely is impressive

Like I said before the game, my concern was if they would actually let DA battle. We were swarming and digging in then they started blowing the whistle in the 2nd quarter but either way no complaints about DA either

The "others" continue to be solid oh well Cam P had a rough one but hey it happens

Ayton had a meh stat line, but he had a good game. Thought he did about as good as you can do on Embiid.

Suns are 12-3 when Ayton is not our leading rebounder.

I only caught the first quarter because I had to teach three classes this morning, but I saw that heave on Twitter during a break and accidentally let out a "holy shit!" in an office room of people getting coffee.

Thybulle would be a max player if he had any consistency to his offensive game.

Anybody else notice how much Embiid was talking to Paul and trying to rattle him and make jerky movements when he was shooting?
