Garden with 5 fouls and you settle for jumpers and step back threes down the stretch.  FVV and Siakam let the team down

Yeah I totally agree. Siakam I am not surprised by. He hasn’t been good in the playoffs since the Championship run. But Fred? He’s pulling up with 18 seconds on the shot clock. His very much felt like the old DeRozan/Lowry playoff combo.

This was too good a team to go out in 4 or 5 but man, it hurts thinking about how close they came to being up 3-2 right now.

The Raptors could just as easily get blown out tomorrow but that Embiid thumb injury has changed the dynamics of this series.

Barnes has been fantastic in the glue guy role in his 2.5 games so far in the series.

And that Game 3 comes back to haunt them.  Absolutely blown out in the 3rd quarter.  Not using Flynn to try and get some PnR going was a mistake.   Not calling a timeout in the middle of a 30-9 run was a mistake.   Overplaying Siakam to the point that he can’t generate lift was a mistake.    Shooting constant threes and not hitting any was a mistake

What an awful collapse in the second half

I don't watch much basketball but even I could tell you the raps are not three point shooters before this game. Ick.

He understands his team got swept right? Or is he literally insane?

I mean, shoutout to the Suns for showing us it could be worse.

I'm torn because Patrick Beverley is a dirty SOB on the court but his hate train on Chris Paul was pretty amusing over the last 48 hours.

At least it wasn't Boston.
