    There isn't. The inbound pass in itself can't be a legal shot, so the ball is live and there can be no goaltending, offensive or defensive.

    Jazz, Nuggets, and Suns used to be fodder…now we’re at the bottom of the West, and the Suns could win the WCF if CP3 didn’t even play a single game

    thanks. I had it on mute so didn’t hear that.

    great play call and better pass that being the case.

    batum should have stunted that roll a bit but was guarding Booker so probably was told not to leave him.

    hence the beauty of the play call.

    Harden could of been patient for one more year. I miss Rockets playoff basketball. Honestly though, I know we wouldn't be better than the top 4 teams in the West this year. We would of been Portland level.

    The real win was getting a W in a Scott Foster game

    Except his moaning about the out of bounds on Booker was dumb. Doesn't matter that it's a "technicality" that Booker touched it last -- how about it was a great play by Beverley to time when to reach in to deflect the ball and not foul Booker.

    Suns are missing CP3. Seems almost even to me. Injuries will always be a part of the playoffs. Disappointed on the Kawhi injury but CP3 being out made it more even.

    Doesn't matter now because he's not here. The West was always his to lose. Instead he gave it up after being beat up on by Lebron's Lakers. Quitting like he always did, to go play Robin to KD's Batman. Our CP3 Rocket teams were better than the Suns are but some players are impatient. Booker looks good next to CP3 instead of having a SG that thinks he's a point guard.

    Future is now looking bright though.

    They're still talented enough to win the whole thing. Tough way to lose a close game, and will be tougher without Leonard and if the Suns get Paul back.

    But Lue has proven over and over how to make adjustments. Let's see what he's got in store for game 3.

    You guys clearly aren't seeing the bigger picture.

    PG missed those 2 FTs on purpose to unlock the 0-2 Clippers.

    The man is like 10 steps ahead. Try to keep up. ;)

    Portland level at best, and that’s only if Harden never gets injured…we wouldn’t even make the play-in as the 10th seed if Harden missed the amount of games that he did due to the hamstring
