I wasn't worried about it - but he hasn't had a good game for his standard the entire playoffs. At some point you have to wonder if it's going to happen.Im not worried about Durant’s shooting. He’s one of the best players in NBA history. He’ll figure it out. Im more worried about Monty getting flexed on again
I can agree with that. But great players can make an impact even if they did not shoot well from the field. Booker is playing at another level.Getting 16 free throw attempts is incredible, drawing all those fouls has value beyond the points scored from them. And making 14 of them is great. But shooting 12 for 31 is a very bad night. I don't know how to grade the good against the bad there but I'd disagree with anyone who said he had a good night or a bad night. We don't win without him but the KD we traded for should have made this an easy win for us.
To be fair, his standard is unusual. A very good Durant is still better than most guys in the playoffs right now. Look at his numbers and the combo numbers of Durant/Book compared to other duos. His standards though? I will give you that.I wasn't worried about it - but he hasn't had a good game for his standard the entire playoffs. At some point you have to wonder if it's going to happen.

In fairness, he started doing that towards the end of the season and started racking up cheap fouls. I think he course corrected too muchA big problem with Ayton is he doesn't fight for position under the basket and ends up watching the action.
He could do so much more if he fought to establish position and blocked out on rebounds.
I don't know what you do about Ain'tin. They are going to need contributions from him at some point if they are seriously trying to run the table. He seemed like actually straight up quit tonight.
No…you are right. 39, all of the Suns free throws except 2, 9 rebounds and 8 assists just didn’t matter at all.
Nobody was saying that he is shooting lights out either but you keep saying it. Just stop. You are being ridiculous and being hypocritical.NOBODY IS SAYING THAT
Jesus ******* Christ, get out of your damn feelings. Dude shooting like that is not good and it’s ok to acknowledge it. Nobody is ******* saying free throws don’t matter nobody is ******* saying rebounds and assist don’t matter.
The team ignores Ayton on offense. Booker won’t look his way, even when Ayton puts himself in position to shoot a high percentage shot.
