And this will get barely any airplay.
He is the most disrespected star in the NBA. Another reason we MUST win the title. He will never get the credit he deserves until he wins a title.

Every game with this team is must see TV. This is the most fun I have had watching an Arizona sports team since 93.

The end might not be a title but damn the journey is incredible. I plan my whole day around game time right now

On the plus side, the cap is supposed to go up $9m next year.
That will definitely help. I am also really curious as to how much money a championship run brings in. I wonder if a certain number of playoff games combined with other revenue such a run brings in makes paying the luxury tax a lot easier. I am sure that each home game brings in millions, and I would think that merch sale from a championship run would bring in an insane amount of money as well.

The Suns bench contributed 28 points.

Of those points, Shamet scored 19 of them on 6-10 shooting from the field and 5-9 from 3-point range.

Suns won this one at the end of the first half when they got into KAT's head. He even admitted as much and pointed at his head repeatedly. He knew they were done for.

Indeed. If he played for the Lakers, Celtics, Bulls, or Warriors, ESPN would probably have been pushing him for the NBA 75th Anniversary team and expressing outrage if he wasn't on it.

DA was amazing, Booker was awesome, and Shamet? heck yeah man! where has he been? I love his new found confidence and production. I hope your not teasing us and continue this great play through the payoffs! great win tonight. Magic number 1 and Chris Paul will be back to help clinch it!

This has been blowing up all over Twitter. Surprised it wasn't in this thread.

Devin Booker to a couple of fans sitting courtside (assuming @JordanDye and his buddy @SkolBros):

"Shut up, [email protected] !!"

Lol Book is gonna get fined. He lives for those moments though. He played within himself tonight. He was struggling at the line there and he finally got it going in the second half.

I wish I better knew the context of that, but it’s awesome.

This is one of the most satisfying wins of the season. All the jackassery from the pretender wolves and now they fools. Happy to escape Beverley with only one cheap shot on book that backfired. Nice to see Ayton get a career high score and shamet to keep stroking it. This team don’t take ish from no one. LOVE IT!

Found Crowder's "flagrant" on Pat Beverly....

Beverly really needs to pursue an acting career, another great performance here...

Trash talking by fans sitting upfront is becoming a real problem in the NBA. They want to be a part of the game, they got it.

These refs are GARBAGE!!

And they even call him “PatBev.”
This had me absolutely baffled. Really rubbed me the wrong way. Are they that tight? Is he a fan of Beverly? Can you imagine a ref saying "2 free throws for King James" or "technical foul on Bossman99"? Since he was the one making most of the horrendous calls (imo), it was not a good look.
