i would probably say, i fucking love/hate cp3.


I missed that during the game. fucking awesome. talking shit like that is what competing is all about. and it goes both ways. if conley did that to Book after he missed his at the end of the game, i would have respected it.

Why is Crowder taking a step back 3?
So bad. His shot selection is horrendous
He did hit a big one in OT. Or was it end of regulation? I forget.
Think end of regulation, but ya he made up for the step-back I guess

One observation ... Ayton is not in awe of Gobert, as he once was. Solid game by DA.
Luv to see it 8-)

I missed that too (CP3 five attempt). LOL. Booker didn't have to miss one too to make Mitchell feel better.

Not the cleanest offensive game by any measure but I appreciate the resilience

Book icing the game at the end of Regulation would have been perfect but what should not go unnoticed is because of Mikal foul trouble, Book guarded Mitchell probably from like 7mins left in the game. Yea Mitchell got his but Book definitely wasn't out there being a turnstile, think he really worked on that end also

My boy Cam same thing. Yes he hit his 3s but decent game defensively also having to fill in for Mikal and then getting on the boards was great

Not only did DA play a helluva game but he basically played the whole 4th quarter in which we couldn't afford his energy to drop. He more than did his job tonight and like I said pregame (he looked like a guy who confidence is growing) and obviously after tonight he's gonna feel even better about himself

What I appreciated is that they let them play, I've seen matchups against these other centers when DA tries to be physical and they make some soft calls and then he's out of the game literally then mentally

Crowder and Craig had me holding my breath on their 2nd half 3pters but they made couple huge ones

Just alot to like tonight 🔥💪

Booker missed his first I think...so Mitchell returned the favor.

Mitchell started rough, but he almost won it for them. He was better than Booker tonight...though both weren’t particularly efficient. But that’s kinda what happens when neither offense is producing...gotta turn to your stars and hope they can make something happen. Really a weird regular season game...think it was played more like a playoff game. Tough defense, rotation games, abandoning offense and turning to your stars, etc. Good indicator that we pulled out the win.

Booker was better on Mitchell than Bridges was tonight. Weird game from Bridges...we’ve seen him be a zero on offense, but he was a zero on defense too. Probably pretty easily his worst game of the year.

But ya, I was impressed with Bookers D on Mitchell. He’s not someone you can target anymore on D. Cam was great too, stepped up when Bridges was a 0.

Loved Ayton too...could definitely see he was feeling the extended minutes come overtime, but he made some huge plays. He’s put together a string of really good games lately. Let’s keep it up!

CP3 was the player of the game though. He really is almost a cheat code for the Jazz defense. They want to force mid range shots and that’s exactly what he wants to do. He had it going tonight and was the one steady performer all night.

The Suns have the best road record in the NBA (17-6), the best record against teams .500 or above (18-6), and the best record for the last calendar year (44-14).

I'm starting to get really optimistic about Ayton's trajectory lately. He seems to have turned a corner as it relates to reducing his bad habits. If he can put forward this kind of performance in the playoffs, the Suns are real contenders.

Now that he's looking better, my biggest worry has shifted to the lack of consistency on the wing. It seems that it's either Mikal, Cam or Crowder every game, but never two or more at the same time. I don't know if the Suns could endure more than one game with all three having an off night in a playoff series.

I do like that Craig seems to be a steady hand at the position. I don't think he'll ever go 4-5 from 3 in 15 minutes and be the difference maker in a close win, but I like that he always seems to be locked in. I also like the potential of using him with Carter because they're both guys who bring a lot of energy to the game. It's not going to look great offensively sometimes, but 3-4 minutes against opposing bench players could be enough.

Really impressed with the defense and timely shot-making by Cam J tonight. Nice to know he’s not afraid of the big moments going forward.

Yes! Also, super encouraging. He’s looked much better lately and I thought he played one of his most well-rounded games tonight. He wasn’t afraid of Rudy at all on either side of the floor.

Book left hand is money more often than not. That was an unfortunate miss on the drive up 3
I was disappointed in the pull up for the win but looking back at it Conley was sleeping on the previous play which allowed Book to get in the lane. Don't think Book gets there on the last play, would have had to be driving and trusting Cam to hit the shot because Conley was definitely gonna give up the 3 than let Book turn the corner

I was hoping that someone did a more detailed highlight clip with the blocks and that full possession with the key offensive rebounds but hey still gonna share this one
