    You can't underestimate Ayton's tie up for the jump ball with Giannis in that 4th. That's something he doesn't do his rookie year, last season, or maybe even in January. The kid's confidence is growing noticeably in the last two months now.

    Except $$$$$$ for themselves. They’re pretty good at that.

    On the plus side, great scorers don't let those that kind of cold streak last for long, and hopefully he's due for a hot streak during this tough stretch of games.

    This was a big balls win. Everyone but Dario really contributed.

    Ayton had some difficulty with giannis early but his play down the stretch might be the most DOMINAYTING I’ve seen from him yet. He called for the ball. Repeatedly stoned giannis. And he owned the defensive glass. I was incredibly impressed.

    nice to see book bounce back and contribute in ways other than scoring - though I hate that final hero ball crap against a top defender to end the game. It was definitely a foul, but refs usually swallow their whistles in those instances.

    Paul kept us in it early, thank goodness.

    bridges just played huge down the stretch. This was a night of confidence building for that kid.

    bench really played well.

    STOKED for the bounce back win!

    Give credit to the Bucks defense, and also in large part to the Suns' plan to dribble down the clock, they didn't leave Book much of a window to deliver a passable ball to an open teammate. It was get the shot off or 2OT.

    I’d give the bucks d more credit if we hadn’t seen the step back three point shot her ball failure a bunch of times already this year.

    It looked to me like the coaching staff assumed Booker would be able to break Holiday down off the dribble, and then he couldn't.

    The Suns tried screens to get Holiday off Booker. It didn't work. Everyone knew Booker would dribble around and he would take the last shot.
    He ended up taking tough shots in regulation and in overtime.
    Hero ball is not what got the Suns to where they are now. We have multiple playmakers and shooters on this team. We will have major trouble at the end of close games until the coaches and Booker make use of these players.
    Jordan, if not the greatest then at least one if the greatest, understood this as the Suns fans well remember.
