Nothing solves opponents runs like jacking up stupid outside shots

Wow…..heartbreaker. Mikal should’ve gone up stronger. Monty didn’t call timeout. Book took a long two and it almost fell. The missed free throws killed us down the stretch. Dang man we should’ve won that game. That’s frustrating.

Why did Dario start. Maybe ish should have.

Payne was bad tonight, ref’s too.

We missed 4 shots at the end, Payne’s was a wtf shot. Bridges was too soft going up for that. Book missed two shots on that last ditch effort as well.

Suns should have played two centers more tonight. Dario is not there yet.

Depth really does matter. The Suns were down three power forwards in Craig, Cam Johnson and Crowder.

It's hard to feel sorry for the Suns when the Rockets drove the lane time and time again for easy layups.

So much for Ayton has arrived!

Fool me once, shame on me…

Also, Bridges repeatedly when Book was on the bench did absolutely nothing. Repeatedly wasn’t able to create. Nuts shriveled to the size of a piece of a peanut down the stretch… as usual. I mean, short-arming that last shot from 5 feet.

Against an absolutely ATROCIOUS team.

Yeah, so Ayton hasn’t arrived. He was absolutely horrid tonight. Not just all his 5 turnovers (and really more because some were attributed to passers who put the ball on him but he failed to handle it twice), but his effort was nonexistent. I mean he totally proved my points the past week that he has no handles and can’t effectively seal defenders. There wasn’t a player on Houston who would be considered a good defender on him tonight and he flat out sucked. He’s not a #2 right now.

Saric and shamet are gawd awful. Tonight was the worst game I’ve ever seen from shamet, and that’s saying something as he’s had plenty awful games. And Dario, unfortunately I think Dario just may not be anything more than an end of bench no player anymore.

As cheese pointed out, bridges couldn’t generate offense when needed. We dramatically need anothe shot creator. If we had derozen we win going away tonight because he would’ve gotten buckets in the third and beginning of the fourth when book sat and we could generate anything.

Blew a third big game from book and a good game by Payne. Sucks.

Last night reminded me a bit of a football game where the opponent runs the ball right up the gut of your defense and you can't stop them.

It was a layup drill all night for the Rockets and everyone knew it was coming.

What can say after a game like last night. Where is the beef?

It's a shame Booker has to go for 50 for the Suns to win, which he could have. Monty substituted him into the game too late.

It was a trap and game and you could tell they didn’t take the Rockets serious

I'm not a believer in trap games. I believe you put forth the effort every game.

It was breakdown within the coaching and players. Suns did miss Torrey Craig.
