    I don't know what you're talking about, Harden never blew a 3-1 lead ever, certainly never failed to close out a team at home with said lead.

    have to give respect to PG13. He's doing the best he can without Kawhi.

    Cp3 choke curse continues. This is why pg led teams dont win rings, they too small forwards can do what they do but better (*except curry with 3-4 all star teammates)

    Dude is 6 wins away from being a champion and a FMVP. And, perhaps most importantly, shedding this Pandemic P nickname.

    He already shed it cuz he is playing like Kawhi with Kawhi out. Tbh if I'm clippers I'm thinking of getting Kawhi out to give PG more help. Kawhi is a great player but cant stay healthy you dony want a Mr. Glass as a franchise player.

    I think for me it has more to do with how the media backlash against all the replays basically resulted in the refs not reviewing an out of bounds play last game that they clearly should have as it was the exact same play and again of the Suns.

    Like I was listening to pundits on the radio after that game 2 and they were just like call it (where Booker touched it last technically) out of bounds on the Clippers, no replay and move on and if it glanced off the Suns player last so be it, the “intention” of the play was the defender hitting the ball out of bounds. And replays are taking too long (agreed) so you can’t replay all that stuff. And my mind was blown … because sure replays take too long but the ball was in actuality off of Booker.

    Well as a result of that they purposefully didn’t call replays there at the end of the last game. That kind of angered me … like what’s the point of it if you’re me going to use it?

    Anyway then the dumb flagrant in Bev while somehow the inadvertent elbow to PGs face wasn’t even reviewed despite the fact those have been called flagrants now for multiple years just confused me.

    Don’t get me wrong… i think the flagrant softness is crazy… but call it consistent at least.

    the Jae foul they tried to contest at the end was almost the icing on the cake. Can you imagine seeing that replay l, or being Crowder, it clearly showing a foul, and being aghast and like “nah were challenging this… maybe they’ll give it to us anyway… hahahahaha!!! [evil laugh]”

    Suns still have a 3-2 lead. Why are you acting like the Suns just got eliminated?

    They arent eliminated but the fact that they are struggling with Kawhi out means its a chokejob by Cp3. Booker is like KD sg version so he may bail the team out, but that doesnt change Cp3 choking.

    saw this posted on realgm

    CP3 needs to be benched

    Maybe it’s the effects of covid , or the postseason yips have made their way. But if the Suns have any chance to win this series (it’s already pretty low) they need to bench CP3 and start Payne and play more uptempo. CP has ruined their flow, is flopping around for an Oscar , and looks terrible. His cliff is right around the corner at any minute .

    The only question is if Monty has the guts to do it.


    They're 2-0 in the series without Cp3 and 1-2 with him.( easily could be 0-3 without the valley-oop)

    They basically beat the Lakers with Cp3 being a liability in every game besides game 4.

    You say 6 wins like it's easy. o_O

    Paul George has proven to be a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, but perhaps there is a key. For the Clipper's sake, let's hope that key is not Chauncey.

    Covid clearly ****s people up. Westbrook played unusually bad after he came back from Covid AND a quad.

    Cp3 looking like he did before the rockets traded him. No way suns would win this series if kawhi was healthy the way cp3 is playing.....and they still might lose. I have no doubt this is going 7. They dont really have an answer for the small ball. They cant get stops and cp3 is walking the ball up all game so offense is ass too.

    Clippers should be up 3-2 if it wasn't for that last second alley oop slam from Ayton. Also could have potentially won the series tonight if their offense wasn't completely bad in Game 4 near the end.
