Alright Wally!

I hope holding Booker out in the second half really pissed him off. Bucks feeling pretty good about their victory. Suns feeling pretty crappy about their loss. Here’s to the Bucks letting their guard down while the Suns amp it up some.

Go Suns!

I am not terribly worried about the team after game 3, but the one thing that makes me anxious is the referee factor. If they take Ayton out of the game, we have nobody over 6'8 on our roster left and of course we give up 95% to Giannis even without the benefit of the whistle. Kaminsky is 6'3 as far as I'm concerned.

Let’s get this one! I don’t want to go back to Phoenix 2-2. Let’s do this!

So who is nervous already? There is the biggest game the Suns have ever played.

Is it? Bigger than the 1993 Finals, Game 6? Bigger than 1976, Game 5 or 6? This is definitely one of the top 3-4 most important games in franchise history, I absolutely agree with that.

I'm actually more relaxed than before Game3 which is weird, maybe that's cause it's not close to game time yet :shock:

At least the way I am thinking about it, this is the biggest, by quite a bit. None of those games would have brought us the chance to play 3 games and only have to win 1 for a ring.

Anyone, at anytime, on any team would say yes to "I will give you 3 games to win 1 for an NBA championship."

David Guthrie and Courtney Kirkland worked together on our Game 5 loss to the Clippers.

Welp...We're used to not getting any help from the referees. Let's just hope for a fairly officiated game. You can't call fouls on us when we get run over by the Giannis freight train. You just can't. That call last game where Giannis ran through Crowder in the lane was just ridiculous.

Yes. This game is HUGE for us. We didn't win those other NBA championship series so yes, this is the most important game in franchise history tonight. This is the difference between going up 3-1 and having an almost insurmountable lead and being tied up 2-2 where it's anybody's series to win with 3 games remaining. I would hate for the Bucks to have the momentum going into Game 5.

At least the thread starter this time doesn't expect us to lose before the game has even started. ( :P You know I love you FF!)

Monty should have challenged that, at least to send a message.

After tonight, the only Finals Refs left that haven't had a game are Goble (1-1) and Fitzgerald (2-0). It would be great if they are selected with Marc Davis or Josh Tiven from Game 1 to do Game 5.

It was, but it was too early to challenge and if I remember correctly, Crowder did hook his arm while he was falling down (which could be seen as a flop to draw a charge, but then a foul he committed while flopping, when you look at it in slow mo).
