I wish they would give it to a 3 pt shooter instead of trying to strictly rely on forced shots at the end. I don't mind Paul deciding to take it, but man, our 3 pt shooters could have maybe tied up this gameon the last couple of possessions.

not mad at all about this loss. Shouldn't have gotten 30 down but they shouldn't be shooting some ridiculous % either. We did well to keep composure and got back into it.

If anything this is a bigger Suns story than it is a Clippers story because we made it a game even though we lost.

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

We lost because Johnson/Bridges combo only 12 points.

Our crunch time offense is extremely stagnant/predictable.

Wow, so close! Damn!

That pull up from CP3 was a good shot, and that 3p from Book was good too...but they couldn't score.

Paul George had the game of his life, he isn't scoring 40 again in his career.

And they needed some monster shots by Batum and Ibaka to pull this out.

Suns just needed slightly less awful 3 point shooting tonight.

Can’t even be mad honestly. They hit some incredibly difficult shots and we missed a bunch of open ones. Ggs

Playoff calibre game and the experience is worth more than the result.

Ayton and Booker stood up as our future cornerstones.

Not mad either. I just wish in close games down the stretch they should trust their shooters instead of always relying on isos. It's just a better shot if open than a contested iso attempt....especially if it's with more than a minute left and you have to score multiple times.

That's why teams like GS and LeBron teams where he will always pass to the shooter win it all...less hero ball.

PG was just unreal tonight.

Even though the first half was ugly and we lost...

We battled back and made it a game.

100% we make the playoffs.

Cant win every game.

2 Days off to learn from this game.

I aint mad.

To bring it back from 31 down in the 6th game in 9 nights was impressive. Looked like they just didn't have the legs for their 3 point shooting and I can't blame them with the schedule and where the games were. Build off the momentum of coming back and making this one a game.
