They scored 1 point in 2 minutes that Booker sat and had their 6 point lead dwindle to 1

From that moment forward:

Booker is:

6 points, 2 assists, 1 steal 1 turnover and the Suns +4

So it was Booker hitting the big shots not Lee? Got it

Are you talking about John Drew? Great player, could have been even better if he hadn't been plagued by cocaine addiction. Didn't make the HOF but I think being the first NBA player to receive a lifetime drug ban had a lot to do with that.
Yeah. That guy.

No he didn’t look tired at all. Omg what a hater

I'm not sure what you are even talking about when you use the word "hater." Don't insult people.

Booker looked tired in the 4th quarter. Monty tried to rest him a couple of minutes in the 4th. That was almost enough to lose the game.

I think you underestimate the Kings. They'll be frisky all year long.

The Kings should minimally be a play-in team. They are still finding their way. Sabonis really wants to win.

Kings are definitely more balanced than any previous Kings team within the last 15 years. Solid talent all the way around, the rookie might be their weak link to their rotation, they're missing a true #1 player.

Ayton only getting 10 FGA isn’t good. Like you said and it was mentioned in the game thread he flashed open several times and was just ignored. One thing I do notice without Paul there is no pick and role for our centers at all. No two man game in sight. Those lobs for Ayton and McGee last year are gone.

Booker 28 FGA (17/28)
Ayton 10 FGA (8/10)
Payne 10 FGA (2/10)
Craig 10 FGA (5/10)
Bridges 14 FGA (6/14)
Lee 11 FGA (6/11)

This game was Booker just losing his mind and deciding to go full hero mode. We won tonight but that’s not what I want to see from him. They almost caught us at the end. It shouldn’t have been that close.
Yup. It’s crazy no one else can do it. Other teams cook us with it and we can’t respond. Crazy.

Don’t act so damn childish. You’re trying your hardest to make this something it isn’t.

Plenty of guys have pointed out Booker looked tired in the 4th. But yes I clearly have an agenda here and am just being a hater.

It's laughably, hilariously, exactly what it is.

Here are Lee's 2 three pointers in the 4th

#1. Booker passes out of the double team who swings it to Lee who has the most open shot you can imagine in a half court setting

Damion Lee 3 number 2. Booker doubled to Ayton who is doubled and then Lee is wide open.

Booker and Ayton both with super efficient 15’ and in games could be deadly but for some reason they don’t really work on it.

Booker double teamed on the last possession, who gives it to a wide open Bridges who missed it. Lee is also hilariously open

I guess we’re all just laughably wrong then since multiple posters have since also pointed out how Booker looked tired and we aren’t really running a two man game.

Oh well.

Other posters have called out 2-3 shots he looked tired.

You are dying on this hill that he was the reason it was close in the 4th and he didn't have a good game. He also was playing hero ball,.not passing enough,

That's proven to be factually incorrect. It's not even an opinion. I have given you all the receipts.

Also Booker absolutely ran the two man game with Ayton multiple times and I am pretty sure assisted on at least two of Ayton's 8 FGs in that manner.

To say it doesn't exist without Paul is simply making stuff up to fit a narrative.
Considering Ayton used to subsist on those and now there’s maybe 1 or 2 a game, yeah it virtually doesn’t exist. At least not to the extent it did with Paul. The weird thing is I remember book being better at it the last two years.

They need to give it to someone's favorite player. That's what matters here.
Eh, I thought they could’ve gone to Ayton more as well. There were a number of times Ayton had a mismatch pinned deep in the post and no attempt was made to get him the ball.

He had a great game, but he did have a good stretch in that 2nd half where he was playing some hero ball.

Thing is, I'm not going to fault him for doing so in a game where has it going like he did. If he is having an off day and taking a bunch of those shots than it's an issue, but if he knows he has that feeling like in this game than I am completely okay with it.

The key is that he didn't let his good game deter him from simply dumping the ball off when the doubles started coming late in the game.

I decided to look up Domantas Sabonis measurements. This is with shoes.

This is from DraftExpress dated April 28th, 2016:

Measured at 6'10 in shoes with a below average 6'10.5 wingspan and a strong 238-pound frame at the 2015 Nike Skills Academy last summer - Source: https://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Domantas-Sabonis-62889/ ©DraftExpress
