Nurkic looks like he wants no business being in the game

It's starting to seem more apparent that the Suns need some kind of legit ballhandler when Booker is out. Maybe that can be Beal... if he's not out at the same time. But failing that, we don't just seem to have a steady playmaker to come in off the bench.


This is why I wish we kept Cam Payne. He'd be perfect running a second unit.

Completely agree, would be nice to have someone running the point and setting things up.

23 to 7 in the 4th. They are so lost and counting on KD to much.

That blows. Team should be ashamed of themselves for that quarter.

If Booker plays tonight it’s may be a blow out for Phx. Good learning experience as a team. Definitely have to dial some stuff in.

You really consider being allowed to bull rush people for layups a great skill?

LOL. Yes. It’s laughable to think otherwise. And he just went through our D like Swiss cheese down the stretch.

Throw in his ability to still get 9 and 8 rebounds and it’s preposterous not to be impressed by what he’s still doing.

I wonder what would it would take to get Brogdon from Portland? From what I understand, they really don't need or want him with their youth movement.

That's game - Lakers just kept LeBron on ice until it was time - KD was not afforded that luxury - LA was the better team tonight

This loss was preventable. JFC, Vogel. Play your horses
Agreed... there was no reason not to go deeper on the bench with Booker and Beal out. I hope we don't have yet another coach who's too stubborn for his own good.

Welp.

No Book.
No Beal.

National media will now proclaim the Lakers the best team in the league.
