so many turnovers

It's hard to handle the ball when the refs just stop calling fouls on a press. That steal by Wiggins for a dunk by Poole he clearly fouled Craig.

Oh well at least they made a game of it in the 4th quarter nice to see Curry get the rust off in the 4th quarter.

This team desperately needs the all star break to get some guys back. And Kerr I know you love him but you can't play Iggy he needs to retire IMO. Love the guy but he's done, will be a coach someday

Heckuva game by:

Bridges tonight. The two offensive rebounds and middies were huge.

Lee was super aggressive. Way to take us home at the line.

Craig with 14 boards!

Biz with 8/8/2 in 17 minutes

SUPER DARIO 19/9/7

Washington with 21 on 5 threes.

Landale felt like the only guy who seemed a mess.

Absolutely. The Warriors were knocking the Suns players off the ball and not getting called for it.

It happens all the time like I said that one drive where Lee went in and lost the ball he got clobbered from behind no call. And then after several minutes of calling nothing they called a ticky tack foul on Steph after the jump ball and he couldn't believe it. I was laughing given how many fouls we'd gotten away with prior to that

If you remember the movie Ben-Hur, Dario Saric reminded of that steady horse that held the inside track in that famous chariot race.

Great win even though it got ugly considering our roster and their stacked roster! Gotta clean up getting the ball in and down court, be nice if the refs called all the fouls they were committing in the inbounds plays!

It would be huge if Dario Saric could regain his form prior to his injury in the Finals against the Bucks.

He is not spectacular but he is a very smart, steady player.

Didn't follow the game last night, expected the worst, watched the Curry highlights on Sportscenter at the gym this morning, just found the outcome here, amazed the MASH unit won!

Biz was fouled a couple of times in a row during the 3rd, should have been some and1's there.



Good win. Finally some heart.

Suns have been in some of these losses, about half of the losses we have racked up.

We just do no have closers to finish off those games. Last night we finally held on long enough to close.

They dominated the glass, the paint, held the Warriors to under 40% shooting from the field and the 3 point line. The team let GSW back in with all the turnovers but it was a great effort. The fact Monty went with a slightly different rotation was shocking.

Bridges had some big plays, Craig was a beast on the boards, can't say enough about Washington and Lee. There was a Dario sighting too.

All the Suns would need is for this team to show up 50% of the time to keep them within striking distance until the team is healthy.

They've been there, they just can't close those games out. Inexperience and youth at its core. And the ghost of cp3 can't be relied upon.

I sure hope the ballhandling debacle isn't ignored since we won. The Suns tend to do that -- they win and everything is "fine", and then we end up making the same exact mistakes the next game and we lose. Monty's inability to address problems during wins has hurt us.
