Did Book just miss another free throw at the end?

Edit: Whew, lucky they didn't make that 3.

It's weird...Book missed a couple in another game that would have iced it. I think we may have luckily won that one too.

So next up our nationally televised game in Phx against the Mavs on ESPN Wednesday before we stay in Phx for a big game Friday on ESPN against Dallas.

Strangest thing I've ever seen on a schedule. I thought they were only doing the 2 home games against same opponents when there were no fans....but to sell that to your fans..that 2nd game....and then why would ESPN want their primetime game in two consecutive broadcasts to be the same game on the same floor?

Yeah ESPN would’ve been better off doing the Bulls/Nuggets game on Friday. It currently starts an hour earlier but they could’ve just flexed that game down an hour later before the season started.

Lakers are playing back to back on ESPN as well Wednesday and Friday albeit against different opponents.

Whoever at ESPN picked the games to nationally televise on their broadcasts dropped the ball a few times.

We cannot be playing Cam at the 5 and Nader as part of our small ball closing lineup. Absolutely need to find a way to obtain an athletic switchable vet who can help us play a small ball lineup. Nader is a third stringer, and Cam can't play the 5

How terrible is his basketball IQ? So many bad decisions all game long, and the last one was the cherry on the top.

Props to the team for winning this one in a back-to-back on the road against a team that played hard and wanted this game BADLY.

The Wolves defense was pretty good and forced us to try different things on our half court sets.

Crowder, Bridges, Cam J, Shamet and Payne didn't make their shots because the Wolves did a good job rotating and contesting at least partially almost every 3p shot.

They have an interesting group of young players that are very good on defense (Okogie, Vanderbilt and McDaniels) but very limited on offense.

Nice comeback game from Ayton.

And our All Stars did their job to win the game, specially in the 4th quarter. Book and CP3 played terrific ball and Russell on the other hand took bad shots for the Wolves at the end of the game.

9th win in a row. Who necks???!

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

Big opportunity to beat the Mavs 2 in a row without Doncic and Kleber.

Can't believe they got into Jalen's comments with Ayton. Especially after they already came out and said they were just made up by Jalen. I mean why bring that up? Especially if you are Suns media?

Glad he doesn't pay attention to that stuff.

Return to Phoenix Suns
