Heroic effort from Booker playing 45 minutes and taking over when needed.

Our big 3 stood up in playoff type pressure, defense / bench / shooting got a good test and will learn what it takes in big games.

Ayton so good in the paint in the 2nd half gives me a lot of optimism.

Saric was huge under the radar tonight. 15 points in 17 minutes. Need him to stay healthy.

The best stat of the night is Damian Jones with 0 minutes again.

We only lost cause Frank also played 0. We win by 69 if Frank plays.

Jeez, I didn't even realize the Clips were almost 60% from 3. They just couldn't miss, while the Suns just didn't have the legs after that tough roadtrip in elevation.


Felt like they weren't missing all game lol. We gave them plenty of good looks though.

I felt like the Suns did a good job after that first quarter, but by that time they just had it going regardless of coverage.

We'll be a better team in 5 months for losing this game, learnt more from that than from the wins, have that extra motivation and have confidence our big 3 guys can match it in peak intensity.

I thought Book was going to go Super Saiyan after that little confrontation with Paul George.I've seen situations like that ignite him in the past.

If there’s such thing as a good loss ... that was it

A lot of good teaching moments for Monty

Are they both dating Kardashians?

We havent had a rivalry in 10 years, I'd love to elevate the stakes against a contender to have games like this.

Something not quite passing the eye test with Chris Paul lineups yet, hope it's chemistry and not age.


He doesn’t look quick


He hasnt been quick for awhile, he's crafty, thats how he changed when he started losing his speed.

PG13 married a hooker. Close but not quite a Kardashian.

That was after he cheated on Doc Rivers daughter who he was engaged with.

Clippers have devastating wing defense and are a top notch team in this league. Better than we are. I liked what I saw out of this game tonight from everyone for the most part. Cam Johnson or Mikal hit a couple of those wide open 3s and we win this game despite being down 31. Good to see Booker play the whole second half, I like that Monty went all in like that.

We can be good playing a .5 offense, but we’re probably better when Booker is an aggressive scorer/playmaker and the offense around him runs .5. That’s what we’ll need in the playoffs. We got somewhat of a preview of that tonight but the shots didn’t fall. Lots to be positive about as a fan after this game.

I sure feel better about losing the game this way than losing because of some goddamn ref shenanigans. I hope this means we are getting more respect from the league.

Yeah. I remember the thing with Doc's daughter-the same one that married Seth Curry. Didn't know PG married the chick though, didnt he get catfished too?

I don't think this Clippers team is better than the Suns.

They had a career night from one of their best players AND shot almost 60% from three as a team and the Suns were still only a few made baskets from winning, despite 2 of their top players playing possibly their worst games.

In a 7 game series I'd pick this Suns team over the Clips 9 out 10 times.
