Closer than I thought it would be at halftime. The fouls thing is crazy. Yes the Suns have fouled. Utah has too. That continuation as Mitchell drove to the rim was crazy. Yet Booker rising on a jumper is not a shooting foul? NBA officiating is so incosistent.

I don’t get that call on Booker. Hands were up, the guy dribbles right into him. Foul called for playing good defense. Even moving why does the offensive player get to steamroll the defensive player? Why play defense at all?

Also don’t understand why the league thinks this kind of officiating is a good idea.

Suns don't have much of a chance to win with the Jazz living at the free throw line.

One of these nights Monty needs to get himself ejected.

I think a lot of our foul call problems are self inflicted, our players whine a lot and generally don't know how to interact with refs, but stuff like this is an absolute joke.

If Monty got himself ejected I think the refs would be a bit more aware that they're having a horrible game if Monty loses his cool than our players making whining faces.

Well, there was a terrible call in our favor.

The real moral of the story is the NBA refs are trash. I honestly think they're worse than your typical college refs and given their hiring methodology it doesn't surprise me.

I'm not seeing a lot of fouls the Jazz are getting.

Saric is 4-4 for 9 points. He hasn't looked this good for awhile.

Having an 11-point lead at the end of 3 is pretty nice. I won’t be surprised if we don’t sustain it given how this game is being called, but it’s nice to see.

Big key tonight is that they haven’t sucked when the bench comes in.
