    Watching the “highlights” just now was a combo of nets 3s and a parade to layups on Ayton by harden, 133 year old Jeff green, and freaking joe Harris. In each Ayton stood flat footed and didn’t even try to defend.

    we’ll see what they’re made of with the next three games.

    Man... that was pathetic.

    For those who are trashing Ayton relentlessly, it shouldn’t be his primary responsibility to guard guys 30’ from the basket. If Monty thinks he needs to put Ayton on guys like Harden, that speaks incredibly low of Book’s and Bridges’s defense.

    Window? Just cause we had a great bubble did not give us a window....higher expectations...of course. This team has been a dumpster fire for 10yrs. I for one think we are playing out of our minds and have been great at D. This team had a bad half the last 7 home games. Team is playing good ball.

    One play Ayton caught a pass up high, dropped his hands and lost the ball. CP was yelling at him to keep the ball up high. Still not sold on this team long term. Coaching decisions leaves a lot to be desired at times

    1000%. I cannot believe what I just witnessed from Ayton. I cannot think of a time I witnessed a player turtle more than that. I cannot fathom how mentally soft he is. If he's going to do that in a regular season game, what is he going to do in the playoffs? I am just sick right now.

    The bubble didn’t do crap. CP3 gave us a window. If Ayton had actually taken a step forward on O and D, they’d be a title contender.

    as is, they’re probably a playoff team, but likely one and done. They should and COULD be better regardless of what they’ve done the last ten years.

    This happens regularly. Suns need to fix this glitch in the defense. No one stops the drive with Ayton up top.

    We’ve blown two 24 point leads this year. Yuck Von Yuckenstein.

    well, maybe they were getting to big for their britches and needed this. Last time they had a nice run and a game like this they totally crapped the bed for a couple weeks. Let’s see if they learned anything since then with a tough stretch coming up.

    You seriously need to learn the word "whose." I know that we're all pissed about the game, including me, but this has been driving me crazy for years.

    I'm thinking we might see Frank Kaminsky or Dario Saric starting the next game. Small ball didn't cut it.
