Maybe I missed this, but here is the ayton dunk. Feel free to watch it over and over and over. BTW, that Paul pass to start the drive is amazing.

Nashesque.

The pass, not the dunk.

I said earlier in the thread that Ayton turned on the Amare mode...not only the dunk, but he hit some mid range shots that used to be automatic for Amare. Great to watch.

Out of curiosity, that very first pulling the chair move that CP3 put on Gordon, Ayton was the one that knocked the loose ball over to Paul and technically Paul didn’t touch the ball before then. So in that case, who is credited with the steal?

According to the box score, Ayton.

Yeah, it's overdue. The game is in less than 24 hours.
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!

Thanks. I guess this is all automated now... a real person might credit it to Paul ...?

WW had the idea after game 3 of the Lakers series to have a series of posters start the game day threads to get some "bubble energy" going. We haven't lost since.

So for the last four Suns wins, I've gone to bed right before tip-off since I'm on EST. Tomorrow is a 9PM EST tip-off...I may have to drug myself with Nyquil or a ton of beer to keep the streak going.

One of my buddies grew up in AZ and went to the Madhouse on McDowell when he was like 11, and he said that he's never heard a crowd that loud as last night. Makes me want to fly out for a game so badly...

Got it... I avoided the whole first round and only started paying attention in game 6. Now I'm re-watching the first round games. I will admit to being weak-minded. Can't handle the stress of losing to the fucking Lakers.

Impressive win. Nuggets got off to a great start, but Suns showed resilience and CP3 took over in the 4th.
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !
