he played tough defense and as EJ said the fouls were good fouls.
Actually I think Ayton gets quite a bit of respect from refs. More than I expect typically.
Uh, if you’re talking about me (to my knowledge I’m the only one who used the word “clang”) you’re mistaken. I wasn’t complaining. I was using the incident to prove a point about how turnovers are scored in relation to a debate the board was having earlier today. But I guess if you’re looking for someone to attack you’ll always find someone.
The guy was a ghost for 2 quarters! I'll concede that defensively he did well against KAT, but Book shouldn't have to score 41 just to make sure we pull this game out. And yes, he HAD to score his 41 or we wouldn't have won this game.
We need something offensively from Ayton outside of 2 minutes in the first and the 4th quarter.
That's a fallacy. He had only 2 at halftime.
In 25 minutes, Ayton scored 22 points on 11 FGAs. That’s excellent efficiency for anyone. If Book had that game, people would be singing his praises.
Bagging Ayton for Booker scoring 43 is...well...interesting.
This thread is outstanding. Booker becomes a bucket-getter all night. Ayton plays one the most well-rounded games of his season, including outplaying KAT in less minutes. CP3 gets 15 assists. But, once again, a majority of the posts are about what Ayton didn’t do, even going as far as to say that Ayton is the reason Booker had to score 43.
Y’all need to diversify your bonds.
there is one person taking Ayton to task for the most part. But that’s all you see even though the overwhelming majority of people praised Ayton, especially in the fourth quarter when he stepped his game up on O to close it out.
KAT would thrive in a Chris Bosh-type role on LeBron’s Miami Heat teams. Third wheel, who doesn’t really have to play defense, but can get timely field goals and be sneaky from outside and sometimes, pour it on when others are struggling.
“A majority of posts are about what Ayton didn’t do . . . “. TJ, your Ayton-persecution complex is skewing your perception. As far as I can tell chap is the only person down on Ayton tonight.
Except Bosh was actually a pretty fait defender once he joined the heat from my recollection.
Ayton with 22-10 in 25 minutes. Towns with 21-10 in 33 minutes. I am good with that. One game at a time.
If your going to have a beef on this game it would be the 16 turnovers. 4 on Paul and I think 3 where in a row. Crowder OMG
Yeah...It felt like there were more reckless passes by the Suns in this game than any I can remember from this season. Luckily, the talent disparity made it a moot point.
All I’m saying, and I’m the bad guy here, is that in a game we struggled for three quarters, we need more than 12 good minutes of play from Ayton.
We were just awful for 3 quarters. Glad we win, but you can’t simply ignore that.
