Not much good outside of Craig, Booker and Ayton today.

Very disappointing defense effort today.

No answer for Kyrie or Durant, 3s aren't falling. Not happy about the refs, but they've been consistently bad for a while.

Crowder and Dario may have helped some.
That 4th foul on Ayton was garbage. Just another flop from Blake.

then the whole team letting Griffin stroll through the paint.
It's a lineup of wings out there. No one is wired for rim protection or rebounding. You're going to get breakdowns like that.
Except that he waltzed right by Ayton on that possession.

I know we're not the best defensive team, but that's a hard team to stop and Harden's not even playing. We can't get nothing games from Mikal, Cam and Jevon (or whomever that other bench player is). I thought CamJ had better looks pulling up from midrange when he was run off the line. He's been in attack mode lately, which is always good, but the middy has been there and might be a better shot for him. Payne was good in the 1st half, non existent in the 2nd. We can't rely on Paul to be our #2 scoring option. DA isn't a forceful offensive option and even when he's scoring inside, you almost feel like that's what the other team prefers.

I've liked what Jeff Green's become the past few years, he'd have been a good fit here. Blake can play without his athleticism, maybe ala CWeb.

I am tired of hearing how great Mikal Bridges is and how we need to sign him to an extension this summer. He is quite possibly our most inconsistent player along with Cam Johnson. I have dropped Mikal from all my fantasy teams (25) and am doing just fine without him.

When we have Crowder and Saric unable to play they need to step the fuck up. They both were basically non existent. What happened to E Moore? I thought he was playing well when given the chance. I am tired of watching Carter shoot nothing but threes and virtually never get an assist. Is his defense that good? Great effort from Craig, Booker and Ayton. CP3 wasn't so great either.

Will Nader play again this season? He was starting to grow on me.

Help!!
I wanted Monty as our coach since D'Antoni left town. Nice choice James Jones.

they're just not getting it done defensively today.
Nope. Rarely ever got a stop today. Didn’t feel good the entire second half. Suns just haven’t been playing very good basketball the last two games.

NBA fans and players get so cheated by injuries: Kevin Durant is a delight to watch. So good.
I’m glad you enjoyed it.

It was appropriate on Oscar night. Blake got a couple for sure. That’s what he specializes in these days.

I just wish someone would pop Blake in his smug face so hard it humbles him. He’s such a piece of shit

A couple of things I meant to say after the Net's game:

1. There's only one team that can beat the Nets in the post season, and that's the Nets. If the Nets get frustrated, maybe they play too much hero ball.

2. Letting Bake Griffin have his way was unacceptable. He is slow, he was in foul trouble, and we've got to be better about stopping bigs. Crowder and Saric might have helped.
