We deserve this. We did it to ourselves. And yea, the bad DA showed up tonight. Monty should've pulled him already for Frank or Dario.

Ugly ugly play. No call on mugging of Booker and then no call on him stepping on sideline

Glad that's over with. The last thing we needed was someone getting a dumb injury because they're playing against a scrappy team.

Good for the Thunder for playing us tough, especially after losing by 60 last night. I don't know if we looked past this game or just didn't have our legs but just couldn't shake them all night. They're young, but they're not bad and they played hard for 48 minutes tonight. Good test for us, maybe a punch in the mouth to wake us up.

Well, when several of our wings show up, we usually win. To ight, Craig, Bridges, and Cam Johnson all delivered to varying degrees. That plus typical strong okay from our starting backcourt was enough. Disappointing to watch them lazily give away the 10-12-point lead they had built all game and turn it into a close finish. And Ayton didn't give us much. But a win is a win, I suppose.

I was looking forward to watching Poku, but he didn't do much. Dort also had only 10 points. Somehow Ty Jerome was one of their better players? Oops.

Yup that's how they played
In 2nd gear all game like "yea just don't get hurt out here tonight guys". We fans suppose to think that not the players though, a little of that do we really need to play these guys energy

Well we got over the line

I'm sort of half watching the game while doing other stuff. They just mentioned Booker was pissed off at halftime, but I didn't see anything.
Yeah, I saw him pissed off leaving the court to the locker room. The only thing I could think of was that he missed that last shot he took.

Jevon with a nice steal off the inbounds that got us a Frank layup and then put on the moves to make the tough layup in the lane. Lead up to 15, gotta end the quarter strong and hopefully wear them down for the blowout.
Suns just seem to always have to make the endings interesting, don’t they? Suns are lucky the refs didn’t catch Books foot go out of bounds when he shoveled that pass across the half court line to Paul.

Dario is having a nice game in his first back from injury.
Actually second but who’s counting? He looked pretty good against the Jazz too.

That’s their MO. We were just talking that we thought they were getting over that, but no. Even Paul with the rare last minutes mistake today.

Poku was coming off an injury. I think he tweaked it and they didn’t play him in the second half. And yes, Ty Jerome seems to have made an NBA player out of himself.

Yup DA definitely looked disinterested as all of us who watched could tell. First time in a minute he has shown immaturity and lack of focus, and in this recent stretch of play even in his quieter games it wasn't that he was disengaged. Disappointing to see but to be continued, guess it's his response to the guaranteed impending roasting coming his way that matters
Smh.....
