The intention was clearly there(not to mention the context that he clearly did it out of anger), the wind up with the arm, and the follow through. So I'm not surprised with the F2 call one bit, although I'd have been fine with a F1. Not like it mattered anyways. Anyone who believed the Nugs were going to come back down 0-3 was kidding themselves.

    Cam's nose literally turned sideways from the impact. Anyone who watches that(especially if you saw the context of how pissed Joker was after missing those shots and looked like he wanted to take it out on someone) and doesn't think it's at least a Flagrant 1 needs to get your eyes checked. I'm honestly surprised his nose isn't broken.

    Jokic shouldn't have been ejected but Nuggets weren't coming back down 0-3 anyways.

    This was fine. Put the Nuggets out if their misery.

    Suns now the top dog, ready for the challenger.

    Loving this Suns team

    I wouldn't be mad if they won the championship

    CP3 is a top 3 point guard of all time

    How does "i wouldn't be mad" translate to "new team to cheer on"

    Stop putting words in my mouth

    To be fair when your leaning on Austin rivers, morris, and will Barton as some of your best players that's the result you're gonna get. This nugget team without jokic would be like a 20 win team.

    it should have been a flagrant 1, but you need to stfu.
    He wasn't trying to slap Payne though. It's painfully obvious. He was playing for the ball and grazed his face with the side of his arm. Payne is honestly the player I might be hating the most in the NBA right now. Just a classless bitch with no integrity. I don't like people like that.

    Why are you dumb over this? You realize Jokic specifically said it was not a play for the ball right?

    He tried to “change momentum” - his words - with a hard foul. And hit a man in the face full force in the process. Do you not realize Payne doesn’t have a strong face? That no one does? 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.
