    20-win team huh? Sounds much better than dingo-less warriors.

That the face is hella sensitive and a 260 pound monster hitting you going downward is gonna hurt even if it grazes? Especially when you don’t expect it.

    Guys get knocked out in bloodsports all the time through grazes. Most shots in fighting are grazes, and they get rolled too. Meaning guys flinch and go the direction of the hit to lessen impact. None of that happened.
    Look at the video of the incident. You'll see Payne flopped. Jokic barely made contact with him. Maybe his face maybe his shoulder.

    Tons of people tweeted about this. Stephen A said the NBA refs should apologize to Jokic.

    Only one triple double for jokic and it only went 4 but was spot on about Suns backcourt not being able to be contained. If Murray would of played it would of been a much different series. I think it would of went 7. These 2 teams would’ve been evenly matched.


    Now the Suns face some real adversity with their best player potentially missing a couple of games. I think the Suns are better off facing Utah because I’d rather they play the 2 potential games on the road without CP3 because those are 2 games you’re expected to lose anyways… then hopefully get CP3 back in time for game 3 and try to defend your home court. If they play the Clippers they are sure to lose both games CP3 is out on their home court then they’d go to L.A. in a 0-2 hole… it would be hard to climb out of even with CP3 if he’s back by game 3.
