The good: The ending was everything we needed. Ayton played great all game, 24 pts and 14 rebs. That tip in play with 0.9 sec left was perfect. Zubac that bum had no chance. Cameron Payne was also good. 29 points for the Chris Paul fill in. His shooting form would fall into the ugly, but great showing from Payne.
The bad: The refs were bad. This should really be called “the horrid.” And admittedly, the refs were not bad all night. But good god, those last 3ish minutes were so bad. The offensive foul call on Booker, and out of bounds call also on Booker were as bad as any I’ve ever seen. Am I a little salty because I had the Suns -5? Maybe. Regardless, bad officiating to end this game.
The ugly: Playoff P!!! You crumb bum piece of shit. Up 1 with 8 seconds left, and you miss both free throws?!?! As ugly as it comes.
I like to think the Clippers are dead. This Suns team is great, and are still waiting to get CP3 left. But, we’ve seen the Clippers in this 2-0 hole this post season, and they’ve come back both times. Game 3 on Thursday should be interesting.
