    Literally cp3 Was almost invisible this whole series up until 2 games ago if he just played 75% of what hes capable of it might be a different outcome but he vanished come the finals

    I wonder why these so called basketball pundits have still high expectations on Chris Paul...We all know that CP3 is already old, he hasn't done it- winning a Championship during his prime years, so why would they expect him to win a Title now that he is over the hill???...CP3 has a terrible history of Choking during playoffs-- that's why he was called Chris "Choking" Paul.

    CP3 doesn't have to dominant the whole game. But he does have to play very well in the last 3 minutes of the game. The suns could have won 4 and 5 with good decision making in the last 2 minutes of each of those games

    Glad to her Perk say Monty has to be a better coach. He needs to stop all of that cheerleading with his inspirational speeches and start coach this this with schemes, sets and expectations. If they lose then Monty and Chris have to go as they will not be able to help the team any further.

    • Chamber Davins
      Chamber Davins

      Uh no I think Monty and CP3 should stay regardless. Both of them have been a large part of the team’s success

  • John Black
    John Black

    Suns have got play beyond their comfort zones and dominate. Control every possession. Stop shooting the three, and drive to get the Bucks in foul trouble. Be willing to give up your body. Take care of the ball and Monty must be smart and call his time before the score drops below a 12 point lead if you have it.

    Suns really have to step up more than needed. Scott Foster is officiating. We have to stay out of foul trouble as much as possible. especially Ayton, he has to stay out of Foul trouble, if he gets in trouble, suns are screwed.

  • 인생은like candy

    At CP3's age of 36, MJ was retired (came back 3 years after), and Iverson was playing overseas (Turkey I believe). It's crazy to think that, at 36, suns' win depends so much on CP3. Both game 1 and 2, CP3 dominated and he prolly gave his all. But at his age, the will just isn't enough to overcome father time, especially when he's prolly dealing with so many injuries. CP3 carried the team on his back at 36, and his body has paid for it. Now, it's his crew that needs to step up for their captain. I know Booker will do what he does, it's Ayton, and it's other role players that need to step up.

    • Sed Said
      Sed Said

      @인생은like candy if Chris Paul is the point god people talk about he should prevail on these types of situations. Also that’s not “carrying this team”. Also last year if Ayton wouldn’t have been suspended for half the season they would’ve made the playoffs

    • str8duval

      @인생은like candy he gotta finish the job. No one said it was going to be easy

    • 인생은like candy
      인생은like candy

      @Sed Said except he's constantly guarded by Holiday who's stronger, faster, and younger. Also Holiday is known for his defense specialty. Other than Booker, suns just don't have playmakers, which they have relied on CP3. That's what I meant by carrying the team. (last year, Booker alone couldn't do it for the team, hence their drastic improvement with CP3)

    • Sed Said
      Sed Said

      Cp3 hasn’t carried this team on his back lol he just needs to pass the ball and not turn it over.. and that will open his shot. He does the same routine every game but if he can’t pass and can’t hit his shot than they’re gonna lose

    • Sing Out Loud

      No, CP3 needs to flop more to win.

      if they lose, it's going to be bad for his legacy and he will go down as one of the most overrated players ever by some people because everyone wants cp3 to win and he didn't face a healthy lakers or clippers, but still can't get the job done. that's sad

    • Bonez001

      @CardsPride15 Ehhh, I think you forgot CP3 and Doc Rivers having intense beef, that’s one of the reason why the Lob City Clippers weren’t even able to get to a WCF

    • CardsPride15

    When the tough gets going you won’t find CP3 and that’s his history. He won’t dominate. His history has disappointed me many times. Always first games he’s there and dissipates like a candle

    • Edgar Camacho
      Edgar Camacho

      CP3 hasn’t been the issue. When he played with the Clips, Blake Griffin and DJ couldn’t hit free throws the hack a Jordan strategy really derailed the clips. I remember CP3 closing out the Spurs in game 7 against the Spurs in 2015 hitting the game winning bucket over Tim Duncan. Guys like Jamal Crawford bricking 3s he was hitting all season long. Also injuries have always plagued CP3 especially in the Playoffs. If he has a 20 point game tonight with over 10 assists and they win, people will say he showed up, assists only count if the person you passed the ball to hits the shot. The Suns are lucky to even be in the finals. They played short handed Lakers, Nuggets, and Clippers. The Bucks close it tonight because they are the better team. And I’ll tell you what, Kawhi Leonard being a very quite guy would probably sign with Milwaukee during this offseason. Imagine Giannis, Kawhi and Middleton.
