We did NOT lose two in a row and had to win a game we probably had no right to win!! :)

I forgot to mention Bridges with 21 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists and 1 block.



Edit: Give Bridges another assist.

Ayton on his injury.

xc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media

damn right big man!

I’m seeing something on Ayton’s face during this stretch... there is a focus and confidence I’ve never seen. And he’s been unflappable at the line in some big spots at crunch time.

if he can be THIS guy, every night, we have a real shot at this thing... even an outside shot at a healthy Lakers or Nets teams... which I’m starting to become skeptical will even happen.

he was the difference tonight. Hitting BIG threes, one outside his range and tonight he was everywhere on D.

He barely even got a 2nd season in, with that 25 game suspension, and then the short run before the shut down, and then the 8 game bubble stretch. He still has a lot to learn, but you can see his progression. Making those mistakes he's prone to less and less.

The Cams were big tonight also. They both kept us within striking distance with drives and some timely 3s.

if we don’t win it this year, I do think we’re a solid big man 4, either starter or back up from being pretty damn great next year with an even better shot.

They won’t have that top tier MVP I think title teams need to win, but I believe they’ll be stacked solid across the board with good stars to be like those Pistons teams... both in 2004 and in the late 80’s.

Great win but the Suns need to learn to close teams out. Having said that this was the Bucks and not some bottom feeder. These close games and OT games are raising my blood pressure. :shock:

the Bucks were making great shots. That was just two teams throwing haymakers at each other.

funny because at the half some of us said it felt like a low energy game even though it was close. Definitely didn’t end that way!

I was listening in my car. It sounded like the night wasn't going to go the Suns way....the second half was just stressful all the way to the missed shot at the end of regulation.

i gave up on the Suns I think three times in this game! You’d think I’d learn by now with this team!

When Connaughton somehow received a pass out of a scramble and made a 3, I thought this might not be our night.
