Before the game started, nobody on TV was looking to see if the Suns could tie up the series. Instead they all talked about whether the Lakers could go up 3-1.
That goes with the territory of having one of the greatest players to ever play the game, being the defending champions, and being the series favorite.
True. And you forgot one: Being the Lakers.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

How about Ayton with 14 and 17? The young man is coming up big!
I’ve never been so optimistic about him as I am now. There is still a ton of room for him to grow, but if he can be this as a baseline consistently, I feel much better about signing him to an extension.
Look no further than all the bobbles he had, the couple times he opted to go up soft instead finishing strong, and that one play where he couldn't do anything in the post against KYLE KUZMA.

That is why I want to scream every time I see someone mention Ayton working on his 3-point shot. There are about 10 other things that he needs to focus on before he devotes time to working on that aspect of his game.

Oh I saw CP3 quotes but didn't actually watch that on court interview. Man his voice was cracking which could have been just winded or was he slightly emotional/relieved that he was able to play more like himself and get the key win ? :shock:
Sounded like emotion to me.
To me it seemed like a mix of emotion and being out of breath from just finishing the game. He was sweaty and visibly winded.

AND DON'T BRING THE BALL DOWN EVERY SINGLE TIME!

The only thing I hope Monty is telling Ayton for Game 5 is to not leave Gasol open for threes. Those could have been the turning point in the game if the Lakers had finished their comeback.

I feel we should get some bubble energy going and have different user start the game day thread for each game. It could be a fun tradition come playoff time.
Yeah, where is it? We should be talking about this upcoming most important game of our entire season. Enough talk, WW. A little more action.
bajanguy008 beat me to it. I’ll get it next game. :D
You're on the clock...

Have you seen Wally's previous work? You can't rush artistic perfection.
