You get the feeling that the guys who shrink in these big games will be shrinking in the playoffs.

NBA fans and players get so cheated by injuries: Kevin Durant is a delight to watch. So good.

They're just taking it to us. Too much standing around and complaining.

Carter missing two wide open shots and then the whole team letting Griffin stroll through the paint.

This looks to be a 2-3 road trip.

Exactly why I've been skeptical of playoff success this year. Too many spotlight newbies playing big roles.

I’d probably sit everyone. It’s not working and they have a tough one tomorrow against the Knicks.

Bridges is a decent player, but the next person who likens him to Marion and/or Walter Davis needs to be smacked.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

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.

Craig actually has more of a Matrix-type of game and impact. Pure hustle and athleticism.

He's having a solid game. One of the very few bright spots ...

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.

Cam, Bridges and Carter are 2-16 from deep.

It's about time to pull the starters. Tough loss, but Brooklyn is scary good.

I enjoyed seeing Chris Paul bring some eff-you energy to Blake Griffin.

Excellent game from Kyrie, he definitely got CP3 good some times "defensively" which was a surprise

KD is just KD

Only half watched with the game on mute...every time I looked up Brooklyn was hitting shots. Some tough ones too. I missed the first half where it seems Kyrie was big. KD killed us, we couldn’t stop him at all. He’s so good.

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

As much as Dario been struggling
When Cam has to start for Jae , the bench unit really misses those two

Cam P had it going a lil and Craig did his thing again but bench didn't really influence the game
