As others have said, so proud of the team tonight. Great focus and maturity, which is exactly what we need to keep going from here. And fingers cross on Chris Paul

Suns had 29 assists and 4 turnovers
Lakers had 14 assists and 16 turnovers

Suns still only shot 33% from 3. Though that’s probably due in large part to the final Q. Suns defense was incredible. And Book was 🔥.

I get the feeling that most of this Lakers team doesn't really like each other. Or at least there's a significant divide between LeBron's cool kids table and the rest of the team.

Love the drubbing. Even better that it was the Lakers. Feels so much better.

Also how much money is Cam Payne making himself right now? I want him back so bad next year. He’s been our 3rd best player in this series? He and Ayton probably the only ones who’ve shown up to all 5?

Also was that Chris Haynes question considered journalism? Fuck that guy. What a clown shoe. Booker should have took his headset off and walked away

Lebron couldn’t even be bothered to stay on the bench until the end of the game.
His shoulders must need extra treatment from "carrying the load"
Those shoulders were built for this.

Could you please elaborate? My transmission cut off just after the game was over, you could almost tell that Lebron was in charge of it and cut it as fast as Lebron walks after defeat.

He brought up the double team instance during a pick up game that happened a couple years ago. Booker was chastised by some for complaining about double teams during off-season pick up games. Chris mentioned that as to say “remember when you complained about double teams during off-season games?” As if there was literally nothing else to talk about. It’s lazy tabloid journalism. It came off incredibly disrespectful IMO.

Haha. I've been around but also life happens. I've also soured a bit on the nba the last few years with the direction of the league n players but i've been following our boys still pretty religiously. Nothing like a series vs the Fakers to bring me back to this place.
“Kobe had said (after the play) I wasn’t hugged enough as a child,” Bell recalled. “My mom kind of found him after the instance and we had beat them and offered him a hug in the bowels of the Phoenix arena. She really feels a part of that story.”

Have you guys noticed, Cam Payne is kind of a rager? He literally screams at the refs when he doesn't get a call, and he almost picks a fight with some poor Laker 2-3 times a game. He seems intense almost to a fault. I like it, so long as he doesn't get himself a tech like he did a few games ago.

Given the solid minutes Smith and Saric put in tonight (albeit against lesser Laker talent), do we really think it's better to play Kaminsky than either of them? I really think they gave up on Saric too quickly.

That start to the 2nd quarter was just devastating.

Holy shit.
Reminiscent of the OT performance against the Cavs.

Was anyone else screaming at the TV for Monty to take Paul out after his tumble to the floor on his missed layup? I kept saying it, including seconds before he was re-injured. There were a couple stops in play in between also where he could have taken him out. I don't get it, seeing him on the ground like that, up over 30 points in the third quarter, let Cam Payne finish it out. I just knew something bad was going to happen to him.

Why the hell is Draymond Green in the studio??
Because his jacket is so pretty.
Yeah, wasn't it great having the guy that said Booker needed to go elsewhere. F you! How about now, MFer?!
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!
