I have a feeling the Clippers will win.
 
2021-06-24 8:20:54 PM  
I think a well rested and fully armed and operational CP3 is all the difference in this game. I wanna see Devin Batman get some tonight.

But PG showed you cannot count out the Clips.

Suns uniform inspiration: gatorade coolers
 
2021-06-24 9:55:39 PM  
Do it for the culture Phoenix, we are all counting on you.
 
2021-06-24 9:59:16 PM  
These refs are so bad
 
2021-06-24 10:03:57 PM  
I didn't realize until this playoffs how much I like the shortened shot clock, and shortened clock off the offensive rebound.  JVG, after PHX got the ball:  "that's a fresh 14 for the Suns!"

oh yeah..........i forgot....

a lot of contact at the Suns end isn't beign called....butterfly lands on Big Ass White Clipper guy in the paint, *whistle*

Right!? Grrr

OK, CP3 was NOT in the act of shooting but we'll take the two shots (which he sank)

Was gonna ask if just thinking about shooting counts as being in the act of shooting.
 
2021-06-24 10:12:57 PM  
it can't be "all ball" when your elbow clanks the shooter's head....and you're behind him.

farkboy.
 
2021-06-24 10:13:42 PM  
Man PHX's shooting sucks tonight.

Don't like the pace either.
 
2021-06-24 10:14:18 PM  

rickythepenguin: Don't like the pace either.


Ha, JVG musta heard me!
 
2021-06-24 10:14:49 PM  
C'mon Phoenix.

Anybody but a team from LA.

Yeah, I love that change.  Has even had a positive effect on the end of close games, I think.
 
2021-06-24 10:18:37 PM  
Ugly but a lead.
 
2021-06-24 10:19:17 PM  
I fear that Book is gonna ditch the mask, thinking that's the thing holding him back.
 
2021-06-24 10:23:57 PM  
I grew up with Tony Hawk but if he stole my cheeseburgers and told me to go to Subway I'd kick his ass. Respectfully.

I've seen that before with other players and things like that do get into players heads. Any small change, be it sneakers or a mask will alter their game.

Nadie_AZ: Ugly but a lead.


That's a good way to describe this game.
 
2021-06-24 10:28:34 PM  
Jason Kidd the new Mavs coach? Hrm.
 
2021-06-24 10:29:03 PM  
Clips are doing better than I expected with CP back.  I still think they'll only win 2 games, max.  Unless the refs go absolutely nuts (again)

Not with shooting like this. 

TBF the Suns aren't much better, but enough better.

picodenico: Jason Kidd the new Mavs coach? Hrm.


I'm definitely not feeling it, huuuuge downgrade. I'll reserve full judgment if we actually get some good pieces in the offseason. Pacers fans should be stoked btw, had the best coach available, a top 5 one.
 
2021-06-24 10:33:50 PM  
JVG must be half as tall as the other 2

TheJoe03: Any small change, be it sneakers or a mask will alter their game.


they said pregame, they asked him, "does the mask affect your vision?" and he said something like, "all i need to see is the basket."

well....you ain't seeing the basket so well (2-9?) and when Beverly picked his pocket mid 1st Q, it was from Book's left side, re peripheral vision.

this is anybody's game, i'm just curious how it shakes out.  as bad both teams' shooting has been, mainly the Suns, that it's just a 2 point game is kinda remarkable.  Suns playing like ass and yet in the game.

I'm not sure about that one.  Drama seems to follow the guy around, but it's been a while since his last real shot.

I didn't know about Pacers-Carlisle until just now.  I think that's a great hire.  I absolutely get why the Mavs felt they needed to move on, but I think Carlisle has consistently gotten over achievement out of teams that didn't have a ton of talent.   Like the Pacers-Carlisle.
 
2021-06-24 10:35:05 PM  
I say no shot (Booker)

They're shooting pretty poorly, and CP still has 9 dimes.  Crazy.  I'd love to see the shooting percentage on Paul passes.  They've been some pretty nice setups

Paine is out
 
2021-06-24 10:37:47 PM  
God.  Crowder is killing us.  1-11?

SUNS SHOOTING SUCKS ASS..
 
2021-06-24 10:41:20 PM  
Is that Coldplay's Chris Martin on the NBA "That's Game" commercials?  sure as shiat sounds like him.
 
2021-06-24 10:42:02 PM  
Today I learned the NBA can wipe off a play 2 minutes after it happened (i did say Book was late, though).
 
2021-06-24 10:42:11 PM  
Man, great stuff by Ayton, shame no points resulted
 
2021-06-24 10:47:40 PM  
Monty to Book:

*shows him a mirror*

"Uh.....you do know, you are Devin Booker, right?"
 
2021-06-24 10:47:57 PM  
Man, Clips also opened the 1st Q with great passing.
 
2021-06-24 10:49:04 PM  
Chris Paul is pissing someone off by jawing?? The hell you say!
 
2021-06-24 10:49:41 PM  
Has Ayton been drinking cough syrup?  he looks disinterested and checked out.
 
2021-06-24 10:49:45 PM  
Damn, PG
 
2021-06-24 10:51:06 PM  
Suns were 1.5 favorites.
 
2021-06-24 10:51:45 PM  
Man.  Suns look completely washed
 
2021-06-24 10:52:10 PM  
God the Suns shooting.
 
2021-06-24 11:01:10 PM  
Suns fighting back
 
2021-06-24 11:02:33 PM  
Goddam
 
2021-06-24 11:02:36 PM  
George showing some range there.
 
2021-06-24 11:02:59 PM  
Proof god chose LA tonight.
 
2021-06-24 11:08:24 PM  
Damn.  Feels like the Suns should be down 25.  They're in a better position than they should be
 
2021-06-24 11:11:59 PM  
Ayton's first points since THE FIRST DAMN MINUTE OF THE GAME
 
2021-06-24 11:13:07 PM  
Nice little 7-0 run back there.
 
2021-06-24 11:15:32 PM  
i was just gonna say, "why is Ben Simmons wearing Ayton's jersey?" [re Ayton being in the blocks and kicking it out]" and then Ayton FINALLY chunks it from the paint.

damn.

did the suns get "California Medicinal" before tipoff?  Pace is all farked up, shots missing left and right....

Irie, mon, Irie, we'll be forever loving Jah, mon, yeh mon.  Puff puff pass, bruddah!
