Ayton was in there for rim protection, Ayton is the reason Grant traveledThe calls were lopsided stupid all night you would have thought we were in Portland! That said You have to know they are throwing into Grant and Ayton shouldn’t have even been on the floor for the 1 second as he doesn’t track the ball and jump himself straight out of bounds and out of position to even contest the shot! And they should be able to see in the review that dude took like 4 steps and correctly called it! We got jobbed get used to it…
Freaking CP3 is wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide open. Mikal was came up small in the clutch, but Book has to make a smarter choice on the double team
He also got lit up by grantShouldn’t have mattered. Bridges had two opportunities at the end of the game to salt the game away and turtled on an open 8 footer and kicked it out for a bad shot. And then he just melted like the Wicked Witch Of East on that last play and gave Portland the chance to win on the last play.
Yup. Bridges in the high post with his back to the basket wasn’t the right read by Booker. I’ve been harping on this for over a year. Booker doesn’t read the double well at all. His passes are typically late and they are panic passes to just get it outta his hands, not take advantage of the weakness the defense is forced into by doubling.Freaking CP3 is wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide open.

Lol he didn’t even see the ball or make a play on it, back to the ball as usual. Should’ve been anybody but Grant to beat us terrible inbound D imo…
The double was coming from Paul’s direction. That should be a ready indicator for Booker.
Comparing a regular season loss at the buzzer to what happened last year in game 7 against the Mavs is apples and oranges. Too many regular season games to not experience defeat or even blowouts at that. What sucks is we’ve lost 2 games by 4 points combined to the same team. It happensSince the Suns lost because the opponent got away with cheating (or there probably would have been OT), I find the loss annoying but acceptable. I mean, it was hardly like the Mavericks playoff humiliation where the team gave up.
Meh. Not going to get too pissed about last night, especially if we take care of business tonight. Team took a dump. Book was cold. CP3 won’t shoot. DA was once again in foul trouble.The scary thing is they didn't have Dame. IMO, regardless of what happens to tissue soft Cam Johnson we need to get deeper.
