Ayton 69% FG? He’s slipping!

Nuggets are playing harder and with more focus that the Suns in this quarter.
That didn't age well. :D
It was true until about half way through the quarter.

Oooooooooof that felt good
That game was like sex! Two and a half quarters of struggling and then release!

I don’t remember the numbers but, they showed them on TNT. The Nuggets started the first quarter on a big run and then we basically came back and tied it up to end the 1st quarter. The Nuggets went on a big run to start the second quarter too but we came back and the Nuggets were only up by one at the half. Then the Nuggets went on a big run to start the third quarter and you guessed it, we more than came back. Then we stomped on their necks in the fourth.

The point being the Nuggets come out focused to start quarters and then lose momentum.

11-4 to start the first, 10-3 to start the second, then 10-2 to start the third, or something like that. As currently constituted, we are more talented, but it was indeed a bit disappointing to see the team start those first three quarters slow. But that also makes the run in the third so exciting!

I don't really know what to think of Jokic in this game. He seemed to be overly passive for stretches.

I didn't watch a ton of the Nuggets/Blazers series, so I don't know if he played the same way.

I'm reading some comments on the Internet about the Suns needing to find an answer for Gordon, but that's now how I saw it. To me it looked like the Suns were content with allowing the mismatch with Paul or Booker defending him because they don't think Gordon can consistently make the right play, and more importantly, it takes the ball out of Jokic's hands.

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Campazzo had a nice game, but if CP3 is going to play like this, I don’t think he can play in this series. At least not down the stretch. He can’t guard anyone and the suns will hunt him over and over. We hunted Porter all game too. I like our chances, especially if the nuggets don’t get healthy. Barton would help a lot I think.

I don’t think I realized those plays were back to back…no wonder it got so loud! Where did the Booker 3 with a foul come?

Also shout out to the crowd tonight, I haven’t watched a ton of other playoff games, but I’ve watched a decent amount and I can’t remember a crowd being this loud.

I don't recall seeing so many kids at playoff games, but it seemed like there were a ton of them in the crowd shots.

Usually playoff games are filled with casual fans who're mostly there to be seen and not cheer passionately for the teams.

Nuggets 6 free throw attempts, Suns had 20. Is this real life?

Jokic still has zero free throw attempts against Ayton for the season.

Harlan was in top form there!

I can’t understand the last word though. “Hold on for ____!” Craig?

"Hold on for flight!" I believe it was.

OK, here’s the whole sequence then. It was beautiful. Harlan is now the #1 basketball national play-by-play broadcaster out there:
OH, a THREE for Chris Paul! Bodies on the floor like bowling pins! And Paul LACES one up! He has been a flame thrower in this fourth quarter... Milsap pickpocketed by Saric... Here comes Payne. Hold on for flight!
I could watch and listen to that on loop for 24 hours.
