Feels like a game where the Bucks will win in the finals seconds. I keep saying it because it’s true but someone needs to step up that isn’t Book.
Called it.
So what does that make you, 1-14?

That Giannis block, my goodness

CP3 was awful tonight, not sure his problem.

Book picking up that 5th foul trying to box out lost us the game. I can’t really complain about the call, it looked like it could have been a foul, but Book was our only offense and having to take him out killed us in the 4th.

17 turnovers, 17 offensive rebounds for the bucks. Can't win like that

Sometimes you guys say I'm too hard on Book and I say it's just that I want him to be great

I harp on him keeping his head all season as one of my concerns. He simply balled out tonight but not letting go of the missed call and committing that 5th foul changed the game.

Tonight was probably one of those play the whole 4th quarter type games and the Bucks weren't gonna cool him down. It's real unfortunate that he took himself out of the game and basically was lucky not to foul out on another bad decision.

This game could have really been a classic, he was gonna cruise to 50+

Tough Tough loss



CP3 really let him down tho, the team down however you wanna look at it. This loss will sting, hope the guys can get their minds right for Saturday

CP3 is either hurt, or he threw the game. That was the worst game I've seen him play all yr, including when he was 1 armed in the Laker series.

Ayton barely caught that oop pass. Not surprising he got blocked.

He was holding his left wrist quite a bit in the 2nd half.
Doesn't explain the 1st half though

Any positives for going into game 5 besides being in front of the home crowd? This was just gutting. Bucks have got it down. Attack rim, get fouled. Suns just have no answer.

The series might be tied two games apiece, but my mood really feels otherwise right now. Blah.

What sucks is so many big name media guys are so clearly rooting for us to fail because of our supposedly “easy” path to the finals. Just a shitty feeling.

Suns - 17 trn, Bucks - 5 Trn
Suns - 40 Reb, Bucks - 48 Reb

which led to

Suns - 78 FGA, Bucks - 97 FGA

Also, is Ayton really going to be awesome all playoffs and then go back to regular season Ayton with only 2 wins to go? He has not been good the last 2

Some of these comments are fucking absurd. The Suns are tied 2-2 in the NBA Finals where both teams won their home games.

Media is rooting for us to fail. Refs CLEARLY are rooting for us to fail (you’re not allowed to successfully guard Giannis). But I still feel good. This is the kick in the dick we needed to get us focused even more.

Fuck the refs. We’ve overcome adversity before. Suns in 6. Let’s go

Dude, it *is* the Finals. Every game feels/is a momentum shift, and I feel that some people's emotions shift with the games. Yours don't. And I envy that.

As an aside, I honestly feel like I would have felt kinda gross if we had won the game tonight after the non-call on Booker.

If I weren't a Suns fan, the NBA would be that much harder for me to both follow and watch.
