This was not on freaking Booker. The Suns have a glaring whole at PF and off the bench. If Cam J does better than 5/3 and if we had a better bench you are not depending on the last couple minutes of a game.

Did he feed two guys to win or tie the game and they didn't finish? Yes.
Did he miss his last 3 shots (one of them a layup) and pick up a stupid foul to send them to the line, all in the last two minutes?

Yea.

He had a great feed ayton. He also missed his last two shots.

Look, I’m not gonna beat up book. But he didn’t close. Is what it is. Gotta hope Chris paul gets on Jenny Craig.

Damn…..that was a game we should’ve won. Lots of blame to go around. CP3 is at the end of the line. Unless he’s playing possum, he can’t take over games like he normally does.

Book tried to do too much at the end. He didn’t look tired per se but his shots were short on the last 2 jumpers. DA had a chance to annihilate Nurkic and went up soft. I know he’s a lightning Rod but when he attacks, he’s a beast. F**k that one hurt. Especially with Clippers and GS next 2 games.

Chris Paul has to be more assertive. Early season so won’t read much into it but you don’t wanna blow games you should win. Oh well. Love the no quit, we gotta execute better.

I’m not blaming the game on Booker. All I said was he looked like dogsnot in the last two minutes and Sanders started telling me to shut up.

Book missed shots down the stretch but he put DA in position to finish and he pee’d all over himself. Can’t wait for Jan 15th.

That was a truly pathetic play by Mr. Max.

Nope ...I believe we all can agree we need a real PF....bad. We all saw it coming but the people who make these decisions
It’s just perplexing that all of us normal joes can see this but our basketball people don’t.

EJ, the FT line was the difference in the game.

That's correct.
Yup they’re more aggressive than we are. We are still a finesse team. Until we get some athletes that can attack the rack we will continue to be one of worst teams at getting to the line because our talented big man doesn’t draw fouls. His first free throw was in OT in a game where he played 38 minutes. I wonder when his balls will finally drop.

Monty says Cam Johnson's tailbone was the issue.
