This is N B A basketball right here on the next network.
Josh Berman coming to you live here from Bethany Beach, Delaware.
Still on vacation of vindication for the next week or so, but it's not gonna stop me from giving you guys the best coverage of N B.
A basketball on the Internet.
Coming up here is a crew show crucial game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Phoenix Suns.
Now, for the thunder, it is not as big of a game, but for the Phoenix Suns, it is a must must win, and they're gonna have to do it without DeAndre.
At least he's not in the starting lineup.
He missed the covert testing window on Sunday, so he is not eligible to play in this game.
So that is a obviously gonna be a massive, massive lost for the sons in this one.
So that is going to be difficult.
But the Phoenix Suns, the only undefeated team inside of the MBA bubble this year, as now we are getting ready to leave him Addario.
Sarich is probably start in place of, um, eaten.
I'm getting everything set up here.
Is they are also get everything set up here.
Almost ready for opening tip again for the thunder.
It's not really that big of a game, but man four Phoenix is a massive game is not playing for the fundraiser today because it's not really important.
Nail Gun, Ari Shacochis, Alexander Stephen Items in a Shorter and Nerlens Noel all out.
None of them are playing in this game.
So keep that in mind as we go on throughout this game as we are now underway here in the Orlando bubble.
I'm getting things set up, but the thunder win the tip and, yeah, again get everything set up.
But we arrived here on X SportsCastr and Twitch.
It is a N NBA league pass game.
So if you're trying to find this on your TV, unless if you live in the local areas of sons or Thunder games as Chris Paul would get a game going with a shot and let me live in the local area of a Thunder Suns game, you cannot watch it.
So you guys are stuck with me here and less to be living in area starting lineup for the thunder.
We have Chris Paul against Jordan might. Scala.
Gary is badly and until Nader for O. K.
And for Phoenix, it's gonna McHale, Bridges, camera Johnson, Dario, Sarge, Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio.
Here is a three that will not go for Phoenix, but going back and looking for three will not go either.
Read. Already brought in by the thunder.
The Thunder are in the playoffs and clinch a playoff spot that clinched.
I haven't quit their seating, You know nothing.
But they are all but locked in to whether gonna be. Here's Chris.
Paul is behind the back pass here too badly for three which will go in and out.
Rebound Brought in by Ricky Rubio.
Now, of course, for Phoenix they have been just Here we go is a passing the Sarge, Sarge blocked, Sarge, Put back is good and that will make it 22 in this one.
All right, here we go driving Gonna lose it.
But good job there by a scholar to get it back.
Here's Abdel Nader slam going all the way there and ice play by O. K.
It's now 42 Thunder.
Sarge, Back out! Here is a three point for camera Johnson.
No good rebounded, brought in by the thunder.
Here we go Here, here is a nice passed back out of badly, badly at the nature nature of the Paul the screen set form.
Does Chris Volker's brought back out to Mike Niskala for three.
Which will go Mike Maskawa.
Yes, the 1st 3 pointer of the day on the board for either side, and it is a Thunder three pointer.
Here is Devin Booker.
He's gonna drive in.
Booker shot could Devin Booker with a nice finish, making it 7 to 4 now without 9.
5 to play against the Heat on Saturday.
Devin Booker and 35 6 here is very and badly gonna drive on in his mid range.
It's now 9 to 4 Thunder getting off to a nice start despite the fact they're without a lot of their key members.
In fact, um, Abdel Nader, in fact, three of their five starters are not normal starters for the funder in this game, and a lot of guys are either resting or injured.
Devin Booker is a fader Good, he said.
Kobe was with him in the bubble and that was a Kobe branch on it could be fade away.
Devin Booker has had a couple of those, especially including that game where the other day he's been a very, very big reason why the sons have been this convict.
He's been the reason it has been this good and something.
I've noticed you. Now.
People have not talked to this, but think about good this time to be playing right now.
If they had Kelly Oubre, who has been out this whole time, here's a three for Chris Paul E got it, that's what Chris Paul, that's what Chris smooth because some shot clock cheese of that one.
He's got five points in this game.
Sarich playing salaries and I stretch.
But he's been passed around his whole career but has been very solid of where he's wet.
His Booker, driving in back out of Sarge, Sarge mid range, got it in his 12 to 8 now with a 25 to play in the quarter.
Here is Chris Paul, and a foul will be called there on Ricky Rubio.
Darius archers last five games of average, 13.
7 point six assists in the last five inside of the bubble as we have a time out.
Cone 12 to 8. Okay.
See, you are watching N b A basketball here on this network.
We will be right back.
N b a basketball right here.
Back on the next network of this stolen by Dario.
Start to the end Bound thunder.
Get it back, though. Nice play defensively.
OK, si to take it back.
Here's an Abdel Nader three.
No good rebounded.
He brought in by McHale Bridges again on the court Here for Phoenix is Mikhail Bridges Camera Johnson Darya Sorry, Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio DeAndre Mr.
Coben Test on Sunday.
Devin Booker laying it open in but Devin Booker Mistake Kobe doesn't Sunday Making him ineligible to start I believe I know he's indelible.
Start, Don't remember fees Ineligible Play or not, you cannot start in this game.
Here's a Bosley.
Three good areas badly from downtown.
Gonna make it 15 10 in this first quarter of play.
Here is Booker Booker.
Good belt now is a whistle blown camera.
Johnson's 31 in but whistle blown with 7 40 to play in the quarter.
I don't know exactly what happened there.
I think it might be a Oh, no, they're just showing am replaying their of that nice job.
Devin Booker free himself up.
He has been I mean, he's threats.
Career has been great.
But now he has really been phenomenal throughout his throughout this bubble for Phoenix and has been that guy form.
And here is DeAndre.
Um, he's on the exercise bike right now.
I don't believe he's a eligible to start use acting like a child will start.
It looks like they, like, based of everything we're seeing ya honest, by the way, will not play tonight against the, um, Raptors in that game.
Both teams have locked it.
Bucks blocking number one Raptor locking number two.
Either teams anything to play for, so there's no real point playing with.
And also Yonas is not.
And here is Ricky Rubio.
Rubio gonna drive in.
Layup is off the mark rebounded.
Be brought in by O. K. C.
About seven minutes to play here in court number one here is a play there.
Lay up off the mark.
Rebound about about Logan's dork missing that lay up as neither team have made any subject.
I believe? Yeah, they have not.
7 13 of playing quarter number one between the thunder of the Sun's again funder.
Really nothing to play for but Phoenix.
They have everything to play for in this game.
Here's McHale Bridges, running shot, no good rebounded.
He brought in by.
Okay, see these sons after this game will take on the 70 Sixers tomorrow.
They have to win in order to keep their season alive.
They've needed a win. Pre much. Went out.
Chris Paul Free.
He's gonna shoot three at the line, but, um, coming in the situation now for Phoenix.
Inevitable. Coming in coming to the bubble.
Her Phoenix they needed to pretty much went out.
Well, they've done, Jack, that they are five and O and they need to go eight No, to give themselves a shot. And go eight.
And they need to get some help in order to make the playoffs.
So and that was Dario.
She's gonna get that foul called on, I believe.
So he's gonna shoot three at the line.
Chris, Paul will, even though they both went down home, really shoot three.
I think Actually, I think I might be taking a look at it.
Are they money willing to be challenging it? And he is? Monty Williams.
In my opinion, it looks like it's a 50 50 call for me.
I would have stuck with a call on the floor in either way and calling the floors a foul on, um, Dario Sarich.
So I would I would stick with that.
Let's see if they agree with me. Right? Is close.
Very, very close.
But I don't see enough evidence to overturn the call.
So for me, I would stick with a call the floor of foul on, um, search.
Um, and so they're doing right now.
In the meantime, I actually right. Right back.
I'm gonna be like Stigmata burger.
I'm really gonna run upstairs. My computer. 27%.
It went down suddenly, so I'll be right back.
I'm not like I'm not going anywhere.
Coming right back.
But she told you have a quick, um, so long as just plugging in my computer because you see me or not? Guys league.
I'm watching the game on my computer, So, um no misconstrued, but I cannot see we're still under official review. Okay.
This I don't think is the challenge.
There's an official review.
Okay? Again, I have the volume off because my computer.
So I'll tell you, that was in a second.
Okay? And then a secret.
He's gonna shoot three of the line.
So how about that, guys? I was not I was 1000.
That right? Sick of the carnage for its white guys.
Listen, um, and what I'm talking about, Chris Paul nails his first free throw.
He is six so far in this one.
Here's his second.
He's got it now.
He has seven points, and I was third.
And now he's got 88 out of the 18 points for the thunder been scored by that man Chris Paul 18 to 10 k.
Here is Jevon Carter, who is in the game now for Phoenix.
As now gets about the Booker.
I'm not sure who subbed out, but here's Devin Booker.
Tough shot, no good.
Rebound barn in.
And they called something.
I don't know exactly.
They called again.
It's kind of tough with the new vinyl, but look there, Jimmy on star.
It's me. That's his second foul.
Dario Sarge gets the Falco.
Yeah, you want him situation where he wasn't really even be playing.
So what? Deante Burton is in the game for Mike Niskala as well.
Here we go. Here's Cameron Johnson.
Johnson gets it back. Back to Rubio.
Rubio 43 getting it back shot clocks and expire.
But okay, so you get the steel.
In the meantime, here's a fastbreak badly on the jam.
Various Bosley going coast to coast.
And it is 20 the 10 K. C.
And I start in this 16 13 playing quarter number one and then they're gonna call a time out.
They showed. I'm pretty sure they are.
And badly is eight points as well.
You know we are.
We're going to a time out. I believe so.
C. Some stats here, and they hope never mind.
Badly was an and one is well, that jams it and wanted to nail the free throw.
So he's got eight points in this game.
6 11 playing quarter number 1 21 to 10 k.
Here's Devin Booker Booker coming off a screen.
Now he's guarded by Abdel Nader.
Booker fouled and you gonna shoot to align.
Good job! They're drawn a foul by Devin Booker.
A little slow to get up, but he looks to be all right.
And he is all right.
Cameron Johnson are out of the game, by the way, for Phoenix, and in their place was Jevon Carter, and I actually not able to see the second player. Waas.
I'll tell you a little while that as soon as I figured out Devin Booker, so far in this game is six points and actually know he's in a little more a little bit more than slow to get up.
He's Ah, I think he's probably bleeding and they're gonna take that up, but he seems to be all right, and yet it's a little bit of blood, so obviously they have to take care of that before you shoot the free throws.
For obvious reasons.
Um, eso there's also was treated as a free time out for each side.
Williams will do that.
Meet with his group, and, um, so we'll Billy Donovan of his group.
Billy Donovan, of course, a one of three nominees for coach of the year.
And, um, if it was up to me, if I had a vote, my vote will go to Nick Nurse.
But my second place vote would go to Billy Donovan.
Um, I think that either one of them, I don't think Coach Budenholzer deserves it.
He deserved it last year.
You want last year.
I don't think this year he deserves to win.
Coach has done a great job.
I could be wrong, but I think Nick Nurse and Billy Donovan each have done more.
Now Booker's shooting at the free throw line.
His first will drop down Booker in his last seven games, averaging 30.
3 points, seven assists, 4.
1 rebounds that just last seven games.
Obviously, this is their six game in the bubble, Um, for him as Devin Booker.
Each of his free throws drops.
Booker has 10 so far earlier on in this game. Here's Chris Paul.
Oh, Jevon Carter goes down.
He got crossed up nice past, dishing it out.
I was a little discombobulated by both me and the thunder, but they got it back.
Here's Chris Paul for three and that won't go rebound. Brought in by Booker.
Here is Devin Booker going on the break down the break, but on the quick Costa Coast layup.
Good Devin Booker.
He's got 12 out of the Sun's 14 so he has 10 out of the Sun's 14 points in this one.
Back out to the corner for Abdel Nader. Nader.
Back out to Burton.
I'm sure as Diello um, Gary is badly spinning.
Lay up off the market. Rebounded.
He brought in by Phoenix.
Now going up the court again are the sons.
That's Cameron Pain, Jevon Carter, Booker Sarich and Bridges in the Game four.
Phoenix Here is Devin Booker.
He's gonna drive on in on Bosley.
Explanatory doubled in the corner is stolen.
Great defense there by the thunder.
Here is Chris Paul coming on the break.
He's gonna be guarded by Cameron Pain.
I believe his former teammate Cameron Pinelli was not in ocasion campaign was first year.
Uh, campaign is a former fund of the Here we go driving in, ball comes out.
That's against Jordan's and calling on travel and okay, Phoenix will take over 2114.
So for 4 42 to play in quarter number one Here is Cameron Pain paying out to Booker Booker Driving.
Gonna get back after McHale Bridges McHale Bridges back out to nobody and then Carter gets it back.
Here's Booker for three.
Rebound brought in by Sarich. Great rebound.
Great. Put back.
Nice play there by Phoenix Getting some much needed points.
Closing this gap by a little more is 2116.
Okay, See, here is Chris Paul mid range.
Oh, in and out raps with robbery.
Don't you hate that? Here is Devin Booker.
Booker stolen great defense there again by Okay, So here is Darius.
Badly back out to pull by various vastly shades of lob City from Chris Paul.
Of course, that wasn't Blake Griffin.
DeAndre Jordan was Darius badly, but it's still a very nice play.
There by The Thunder is badly has 10 points so far in this game.
Him, Booker each tidies Booker gets it back.
That was definitely not legal.
It's 23 16 so far, though.
And there Look at that.
Chris Paul lobbied up.
Dairy is badly panic.
Button it as a top 10 player right there.
Beautiful as we have 3 40 to play in quarter number one as we're now going to get a substitution in for Phoenix, maybe.
Taking up the court for O K C.
Ah, wild pass brought back Now here comes the steel McHale Bridges.
Someone tried the guy.
That was hominid reality.
Draw the charge.
I think he did You celebrate when he didn't? He did.
Nice play there by, um, How many? Bialo? The dunk contest champion back in 2019.
All right, great play there by in as Frank Kaminsky coming in for Dario Sarich and Johnson coming in for bridges as a foul will be called on Johnson immediately.
All right? So far, the players that have played throughout the entire game Devin Booker, Doris Sarich, McHale Bridges, Abdel Nader.
And Chris Paul Here comes the inbound for O K. C.
Nice play there.
Does it count? No, it was a very nice play, but it doesn't matter because they drew the charge again to straight possession of a charred, drawn wanted by each team.
Both teams by the way are in the bonus with 3 13 and play in the quarter. Here's Frank Kaminsky.
Back out to Booker Booker Fader.
No good rebound brought in by Darius Badly.
Bosley's had a great day so far.
4% of the field and a 3 10 points as well, US four rebounds.
Um, Bosley back into Robertson, rushing out the badly dairies, badly driving in badly good defense by Booker but gets it back badly, is gonna be fouled, and he will shoot to the line.
Relentless play there by Darius Badly, who actually is the only player on.
Okay, see Devin Booker, the only one in Phoenix who have played you talking as far as we have a time out, called 23 16.
Okay, see out in front is going to come.
ERT, instead of going to commercial break, were to go to some pickem trivia here for me.
Let's see how much I know these two teams.
This is MBA dot coms, official trivia for the game that they are doing right now, just every game.
It's 10 questions, Kohut style, except it's not time to know who did this? SuperSonics played 99 6 finals.
That's, uh, Rockets.
Lead the Bulls, IM said.
Houston, that would have been bad and obviously wrong.
Um, now they played the pools.
Question over to Danielle Allen.
I played first to, uh, for this team.
First disease of MBA.
Next Clippers, Nuggets or bobcats.
Um God, it was the Nuggets, right? No, it was the Knicks and he was one of the chill.
All right, well, one for two.
It's on the great start.
Question number three.
What your dinner gotten drafted 0508 or nine and 2011.
I would say, Oh, no, Await.
All right, I'm one for three.
Is the horrible star for me.
So far to nail, Gallinari has not gotten off to a good start.
What Former sun for them.
Jason Kidd, 95 others when this one's Grant Hill.
You look at it. See the choices.
I knew the answer was granted all right away.
And then I saw Green.
It was the first choice. There we go. Question about five.
What? You drafted signs in our campaign? 2018.
That's a thunder I mentioned it literally earlier in the broadcast.
That's easy, I guess.
The former team, because he could save a bit of a run game.
Question Number six.
Now, How many times was former Suns forward Sean married and I'll start to 1 11? Or for me to say for was correct? It was.
It's been 11 and I knew was 12 That left four.
Number seven former sons for Shawn Marion's The all Time is this team is the team's altimeter.
Which category steals blocked? Even three months of threes.
Ah, Angus, say blocks as renounce defense.
All right, I'm not doing very well so far, guys.
Ah, what year to the sun's fragments of some of the signs that was 2019.
Wow, that was a tough one.
Apparently is almost split 25 feet.
Nearly question over nine.
How many how many years is Chris Paul? But like the all defensive team? 3239 or 12 let's say nine them right? That was kind of a guess, but an educated guess.
Final question here.
What you're seem Africa's MBA debut.
07 2013 2015 16 and 2013.
Belief, right? Yep.
2013 and I went 17 out of 10.
That was not my best show. No, my work show.
And actually I might be more shelling here.
But if I were shelling entities in these trivia games, and I've stuck in them being confident, pretty shirts and we're showing have done life All right, here we go.
We are just about ready to come back here between the Thunder and the Sons.
It is 23 16 right now.
If to 49 to play in quarter number one and various, Bosley is going to shoot two at the line.
He currently it's 10 coins he's leading.
He's type of Devin Booker for the most points on either side as well.
Him and dumb, bigger than one player that have not been subbed out yet.
Well, let's see if Booker still my game.
I believe he is.
But this angle shows four out of five players and the spotter Booker be standing is the only player we can't really see right now.
So I have no idea Booker still in or not.
But basses first free throw will drop and get the shooters pounds to and not Rubio.
So Devon bookers and the game.
There's a son's mascot right there, and now he's 12 years badly.
Devin Booker Add the game for Phoenix.
So it's a We have Ricky Rubio, camera Johnson, Jevon Carter, Frank Kaminsky and I couldn't tell the last player was he won't stop moving.
And, um, it was that Cameron of Loch Carron Pain.
It's, um what his name.
It's, um I think, actually, the guy's campaign.
John Carter and inbound Phoenix, currently down by nine.
Here is Ricky Rubio driving and he lost it.
Stolen by the thunder.
Here we go on the break and he has all the way.
But he lost hand of a boy.
An easy, fast break dunk, but he missed it.
The bull by under represented the rebound back. Here's a three.
He knew exactly what he was doing cause he got an extra couple of points there as Devin Hole from downtown makes it 28 16.
12 point game owl Phoenix Answer.
Back down by 12 In a must win.
Phoenix Here is a lamp for committee.
It won't go now.
We're just about two minutes to play in the quarter.
Live here on SportsCastr and Twitch.
I am Josh Berman.
Here is a driving lamp and it will drop their nice play by Andre Roberson and leave yet There was here we g o Driving in now.
Nice Fake and fish that time by Cameron Pain.
It is 30 to 18 now in this game.
Rebound brought in.
Here we go. Thunder on.
Coming back now down by 12.
Mid range shot Won't go again, Team.
Just both teams do not start to miss a little bit.
Here is Kaminsky has it, frankly.
Tank Kaminsky Back out to Well, now to Rubio.
Rubio, Layup! Good Ricky Rubio and Nice finish their woo the area Nice Finish thereby out And I steal and extra.
And they when I say steal I mean, that's exactly what you mean when we're talking steel.
Just stealing two extra points right there.
Cameron Johnson does.
Now it's an eight point game.
A time out called 32 22 with 1 11 to play in quarter number one.
You're watching the basketball.
The next number.
We'll be right back this and be a bath floor here in the next network.
Okay. See getting out to a strong start.
32 22 in a must win game for Phoenix and the game for O. K. C.
Where obviously they wanna win.
But when Air loser isn't really that huge of a thing, especially compared to Phoenix, where one loss and they're in trouble is they've been five and on the bubble and they got to go eight.
No, to give themselves a real shot in the playoffs.
Here is a three pointer for O.
C, which will drop not a great start.
Their out of a time out for O. K.
C is a three pointer will go that time. Four.
Actually, it was, but I did see that that shot was no good.
45 seconds to play in the 1st 11.
Lead trying to extend it.
Robertson's gonna get it back shot no good, and the put back is good, so they get two points one way or the other.
Come as that put back was Good bye, Hominy, Diello.
Now another steal.
Okay, see what defense? Here's a floater contested, but it does not matter.
The Thunder have been killing it so far in this game.
Phoenix needs to get this going, of course, there without DeAndre.
And who missed that? Cuba testing to be huge for them now, 15 seconds in the quarter shot clock and game clock separated by about three seconds.
Just over three seconds.
You could say, Here's Ricky Rubio off the screen.
Rubio pump fake 43 to have to get rid of it.
And something happened.
4 on the clock in the quarter, and I e think that both teams are on the bonus.
So we did. We will be getting free throws right here.
Phoenix down 14.
4 to play in quarter number one.
By the way, Utah and Dallas just got underway as Chris Paul.
We're going to check back in for God knows why.
They gain the a four second lead in the quarter.
Never on your side.
That, like unimportant situation in the quarter.
And that's because it's not like Warren situation where the game is on the line right here.
Why are you something any player and all their who? It is for the final like two seconds or four.
Just don't really get it. Never have.
But Rubio's free throw right there did go 38.
That started 37 23 years.
The inbounded Chris Paul didn't have the ball here.
We gol at the buzzer.
23 at the end of the first.
Okay, see out in front.
You are watching in the best we're here.
Next ever be obeying? Ran this.
We're back here.
I mean, basketball right here on next network Fix playing in a crucial, crucial game, but they're trailing and even trailing all game long in that way, now underway in Cordoba.
To here is a camera Johnson three pointer, which will drop in a good way to start off the quarter, though for Phoenix, right there with a Cameron Johnson coming to live here from Bethany Beach, Delaware.
Obviously, I'm not from Bethany from Baltimore, Maryland, but I'm on vacation.
But it's not something even giving you guys the best N b A basketball, NFL football and will be baseball an NHL hockey coverage on the entire net.
Well, me and Michael's well as a three pointer will not go, DeAndre 18 getting the rebound.
He was not eligible to start due to missing Kobe Test, but 18 is now back in the game, and that's gonna really help him out.
Here is a layup will drop, thereby McHale Bridges.
So John Drayton is now in the game.
I don't know exactly how that all worked out.
Give us more information and a little while.
But, um, DeAndre is in.
I don't exactly the protocol is because he but he missed the Kobe does right and get the chance to start.
I don't know why he's at the point now, but, hey, he's playing now.
It's all that matters, and Mike Niskala will lay that one in and again after this game.
If Phoenix could get this win, it now comes into another must win game.
And it's against Philly, another really good team who doesn't really much to play for, and they're going to without then Simmons versus seasons.
What? Here's Chris Paul lobbying him again in another slam Last time, it was badly.
This time it was Hama New Jalloh.
There shades a lot of City CP three right there.
Here is the on Drayton posting up Double team gets back Here is Carter Carter out? Two bridges.
He's gonna drive in Bridges. Back out.
Rubio Rubio for three.
But then he lost it.
Chris Paul guy now has it.
He didn't think that the court.
Great lead past their finish.
Not gonna go great defense there by saying, Here's Jevon Carter on the break out of camera.
Johnson, Johnson layup.
Good and the foul and one Cameron Johnson.
The nice play there and a free *** free throw.
A successful free throw here would make it back to a 10 point game.
Not one but two beautiful Alliot lobs in this game.
The bench is raising the roof and some of her.
A lot of the commentators talk about games, and it's very true.
Is obviously without fans something that's really become a lot more important.
Here is how will eyes the energy from the bench because that's the only type of support you can you'll be able to get here in this game.
I mean, the virtual fans, virtual fans, But in the arena, the only real support.
Your guests were not.
Bench that the louder the bench that is gonna help you guys out a ton in games like this.
As camera, Johnson will make the free throw.
It's now a 10 point game here with a couple of just over two minutes gone in the second quarter.
Here's on the Scala three.
He made one earlier, but this time the air ball it as my chirps fans would go a rebel.
Well, obviously terms thing, but we're not the only ones do that.
Um, here's yon drayton dlt math.
Carter Carter at the Johnson jumped another three.
This time it was no good.
Chris Paul gonna bring in the rebound.
CP three guarded by Jevon Carter.
He has a screen separate now, Carter, Right back onto him.
Now, another screen car.
This time of day work is a CP three midrange CP three.
Chris, Paul has 10 in this game areas.
Bosley has 12 was really scores for.
Okay, CNN for seen exits.
Devin Booker was the ball right now with 10 out ate and ate and good Devin Booker to the Andrey And right there, that's a site they've not been able to get a lot of the day.
I was extraordinarily start.
But now that he's in, here's another great pass by Paul. Three.
From a skylight.
No good leading scores for Phoenix.
A Booker a 10 and then you have camera Johnson.
Eight years or three point for John Carter could give on Carter Gang on the board.
His first bucket of the day.
Okay, see this quarter of the sun's five from the field of Thunders three.
Here's my Scala screen years.

And now back in Moscow and other three this time you got it might mask Allah is 43 point attempt is second make on the day.
Here we go. Ricky Rubio.
Eight minutes to play in this quarter.

A lot better than Phoenix.
But again, as I've said multiple times, much more important.
Phoenix in this one years.
Ricky Rubio Rubio lobbying up Tian Drayton slams it down.
Rubio date in their nice play by Phoenix.
Now let's see how o k. C. Will respond.
Yeah, it's gonna respond by getting a foul called, I believe on Booker 7 25 To play in the quarter.
Believe is a foul.
I don't know what it is, but we have some subs coming in as Darius badly, we'll check in.
He had an incredible first quarter and now Chris Paul talking with Billy Donovan course.
Chris Paul, president of the association and the exact what happened.
But okay, see the ball So some kind of foul Chris Paul is also out of game.
Here's a three pointer for Lou against Door.
No good rebound by it.
He was not able to play in the first, but we've already seen his impact, even though the score stayed right.
Most of the same camera.
Johnson three. Get ahead.
Cameron Johnson for three.
The score is safe for the most.
By the same. I mean, Phoenixes craned back.
It's a five point game, but they still been trailing and in, even though they're still losing, you really could see the impact DeAndre has had just by his president.
Floor has been clogging the Lane special on the rebounds, and now it's 46 41 k c seven away complain corner virtues.
Was that going to commercial break here on guitar, bass and games whenever now the only other live game right now is the Mavs and the Jazz.

The Rangers six and eight, Astros six and I, Mariner six and 11 Angels five and 11 in the national.
So that's how that checks out.
And here is how that what that all means in the playoff picture as ever in obviously, very early.
But here's what the Perfecter does look like.
We have the, um, Tigers out as the one seed, followed by the Indians.
So it's That's weird.
Oh, no, that's the wild card race.
That's why I'm wait a second.

Nationally, we have the cup of the top 10 and three of the Rockies.
11 4 Dodgers 11 5 Braves 11 6 Marlins or 73 Padres 97 Brewers 67 Cardinals two and three.

The Reds and Mets or 79 Phillies Air Foreign six Giant, 7 10 The defending champion Nationals four and seven.
10 Pirates three and 13.
And now that we are back here great timing by me.
Look at my computer.
Um Okay, there we go.
And we are back just as soon as I am ready.
And now they were ready.
Perfect. Here we go.
He was Logan's door door.
Gonna pull up for three, and he's gonna nail in a great start there, trying to stop that moment of Phoenix built before that time out.
That's a great way to do it right there with Luke.
Ends door three as his first point of the day as well.
Here is another three for camera Johnson.
He got him again.
Cameron Johnson's had a night.
The sharpshooter residence in.
And once we've got shoot to line Cameron Johnson, man, have a day so far you are just 14 points he's got You know his way to make it 15 of the freak or here he is.
Three for five from downtown in this one.
The sharpshooting power forward rookie Cameron Johnson getting his 3rd 3 already in this one's gonna shoot a free throw, try and make it 49 45 year, and he will do just that successfully.
He has 15 so far.
He is your overall leader in points for either side today and camera.
Johnson's been killing.
Here's Lou against dork, guarded tightly by.
Given Carter's impressing all game one first on Chris Paul Allen against doors around the points door. Gonna drive in.
He's not gonna be fat, is he? OK, so that was definitely a foul.
And obviously I'm not audio off, so the reactions were either late, orderly whistle.
I'm not exactly what happened, but, hey, the whistle was blown.
There is a virtual fan who I shouldn't recognize.
I do recognize that can't figure out who it is who 6 32 to play in half. Number one.
And okay, See, here is Lou against George at the line.
He has two points trying to get third and fourth.
There is I'm sorry.
He has four already.
Now he has his fifth, um, in this one.
Billy Donovan and Monty Williams, your head coach.
Williams's first season. Phoenixes did a great job.
They've been a lot better this year than in years past, and now they really do have a good shot it making the playoffs.
They went they after pretty much went out.
But if they do that, they have a very good chance at getting into the playoffs right now.
Did a great job. Mary Neck.
Yeah, that's for sure.
Here's Cameron Johnson again. He has.
It is Times guard until you get about 280 driving and given Carter wide open in the corner and studies DeAndre is gonna miss a jump hook.
John Carter was calling for the ball wide over in the corner and see him.
Great defense, but right there Lucas Dort, Devin Booker pickpocket them.
But he started the ball back. Here's a three pointer for O K.
It's good big time.
He needed it in all the threes they can get in that time.
They got one great play there by Okay, see, here's Devin Booker.
Back on John Carter.
This time I find in the corner years Cameron Johnson driving in years John Carter in the corner again.
You gonna drive in behind ahead past Booker.
Nearly lost devotee has it back.
Does it matter? Devin Booker, In the face of the defense drilling that long to its 55 54 47 K.
Here's a deep three for door Air bowl that was not good.
Not good at Whole Logan's door airborne The through that Ask my Jevon Carter.
And that Booker pulling up Talledega three to me.
The world it along, too, but made that look like a three.
Maybe one line, but I guess it's not like a greediest or anything.
Here we go as we're in a time out, actually.
So time out called 54.
47 from this game.
And yes, they're going to commercial break once again.
But you guys some stats here in this one thunder of led by as much as 15.
The sons have not Hedley.
They didn't tied at one point.
One of the lead overall.
The longest run was a 90 thunder run in this game.
Your overall rebounding staff.
Okay, See a 16 to the, uh okay. He has 16.
The Phoenix is 15 on the each of 12 assists apiece. Exactly.
See seven steals.
The phoenix is 42 blocks for Phoenix one for O. K. C.
Nine turnovers in Phoenix.
Seven for the thunder from the field.
The Sun shooting 52.
8% from the field.
51.4 from three point distance.
The Sun shooting 40% from three of thunder, 47.1.
The thunder a perfect a parade of the line.
The sun's five for six.
OK in the first quarter and the Thunder outscored the sun's 37 23 the first quarter from the second corner.
The sons have outscored O k C.
24 17 but overall, they are still trailing in this one.
In Dallas and Utah, the Jazz are up 28 23 305 to play according to Run Again, you can watch out on MBA TV if you want to.
And this game's on league passengers.
If you are in the Phoenix or Oklahoma City area, you are stuck with me and what you have lied past? Um, right now, individual stats.
The leaders for O. K.
We have Dairy is badly and Chris Paul for points 12 for badly, 10 for Paul on For the Sons. We have camera.
Johnson with 15.
The overall leader on Devin Booker has 13 in this one.
Then from a rebounds perspective we have for Phoenix we have Dario, Sarge, Devin Booker with three each and then for O. K. C.
The leader in this one is Dairy is badly with five, then with assists leading the way. Shocker.
I know Chris Paul leading waiver.
Okay, See before with Phoenix faces Assist leader.
Is Ricky Rubio again? Not a shock there either.
Was it? Shouldn't be to anyone.
All right, there we go.
And we are just about ready to get back underway here.
Is your score around? Free throws coming up here? Um, four Phoenix ever got to shooting them.
But if I remember correctly, these were getting free throws here.
Um, the overall minutes leaders for each team for O.
A Dairy is battling Maskawa, Paul and Burton, all playing 12 teach.
But deante Burton is zero points in those 12 minutes.
And for Phoenix, the overall minutes leader is camera Johnson, who has done plenty in that time.
And now I'm sorry, we don't We don't.
What's this featuring Adam Silver.
Second screen experience.
1 30 August Levin, Adam Silver.
We'll be there. That's pretty cool.
All right, get back under way here. Maybe.
No, they're looking at bookers three.
Okay, so that is what happened.
I believe they changed Booker's 203.
Other did so Devin bookers to look like a three.
And, well, I was right.
Cause is they've changed that.
Now it's 54 to 48.
He's gonna pass under what I'm a camera Johnson for three will not get at that time.
But given Carter gets a very nice rebound now there's a fight for the ball.
Who has it? It's still loose.
Pick back up by nature.
I was a tough fight for here.
Is Darius badly back out here? And Pasley will slam at home.
Nice ball movement.
They're very sloppy, but it ended in points.
Nonetheless, 56 48 is your score.
It's the AL Phoenix answer back.
Sarge Sarich, Back out here.
The Booker Booker shot clock at 10.
Here is Addario Sarich, Corner three.
Good Dario Sarich from downtown, making a 56 51 5 point game.
Phoenix's Bay within five a couple times, they've never been able to make it less than fun.
Every time they with the 50 K C, gets out a little of a running, I'll see if he's gonna stop or be more of the same.
Here we go here is Abdel Nader.
Nader driving tough shot.
Good finish and see what I mean.
Every time Face makes about 50 K C.
Answers back with a bucket out.
Booker's puts it up on the found.
I think he tried to drive a shooting foul until you successfully drew the foul.
I don't think you're a shooting foul, Um, in right there at 6 30 By the way, the Raptors and the Bucks play on paper.
It was a great game, but neither committed to play for the Bucks of clinch number one.
The Raptors question for two youngsters and playing that game on paper looks great, but it's really not.
And then eight o'clock.
Here's a game that does look good and will be good for the Pacers and the heat at eight oclock and oh about, say, Michael Mercy on the call.
Oh my God, OK, That's always scare. He's OK.
Oh, my God, that's that's always scared. That happens, Cameron.
Payment for the dunk and his hands Let go of the remedy.
Kind of fell back as always scary when that happens, but he is perfectly fine.
But that is who What was scary for a second there, But yeah, he no longer has had nothing like that.
We are all good, but yeah, that that for a second look very scary there as Cameron Baines free throw will bank in.
OK, so pacers heated eight o'clock Michaels on the whisper in the call for But, um, that game is a league pass game, so he can't watch it.
Actually, like in my house work this could well be figured out.
Here's Cameron Pain.
Um, okay, I'll figure it out.
But Michael should be in a coffer.
He a big game, even though it's most likely it's most likely a first round preview.
Is there the 45 the same record.
So and so you could say the bad home court advantage.
But technically they are.
But obviously that means nothing.
Um, because it's they're playing to them It's a mutual site.
Here's a three pointer. Badly Good.
Dairy is badly from downtown.
Now on that when he hits 16 in this game, he has played very, very well so far.
Thunder up by seven.
Double team gets it out. Nice pass.
Sarich now has it.
Booker for three.
No rebound bridges.
Back at the Booker Booker. Gonna drive in. Tough shot.
And he got the foul, though.
So he will be shooting two with wine.
Devin Booker will.
It has been a big reason.
Life Phoenix is in The situation they're in is that came in? Barely qualified for the bubble.
And now they are.
They are in position.
Toe potentially Make the impossible possible.
Okay, looking. Here's you and Lammy.
No, no, The heavens.
But Devin Booker did nail the free throw.
And in will now come See p three.
An update from Dallas and Utah.
The Mavs air down.
The Jazz are winning 31 28 with 1 51 to play in the first live here on SportsCastr and twitch.
Devin Booker nailing both free throws.
It is now a five point game. Once again.
Let's see if finally we could see.
See, actually, try and narrow the government within funding is the third or fourth time in a five point game, but they have not made it any closer at any point throughout.
This is a great defense, and they draw the charge.
Kind of, uh, and drop the charges.
An offensive fouls Cameron Pains got smack in the face.
Yeah, that was not drawing a charge.
It was an offensive foul.
Got smacked in the face there.
So now face is gonna get a get tough.
Just gonna get a chance here to narrow that gap.
Finally make his game a little closer.
3 14 to play in the first half of action.
And I believe they're gonna Sorry.
3 14 unbeliever.
Gonna take care of Cameron Pain years.
Yeah, that looked very painful.
Very, very painful looking.
There's, I think that actually going to take a look at it to see if it's a, uh, common Fowler.
How style Actor.
Whatever you wanna call it? Um, so, yeah, I think we're gonna go into a review.
It looked unintentional looking inadvertent, so I would not.
I would call it a common foul.
Let's see what they dio And, you know, he got elbowed in the in the nose there.
That look inadvertent.
Personally, I'm calling that a, um, a common foul, But we'll see what happens.
And Billy Donovan has been given a technical foul.
Okay, I'm so so.
Billy Donovan has been teed up, and I'm not sure exactly why, but Billy Donovan has a technical fat just got a text, so we're gonna see what exactly going on.
I don't know what happened.
Obviously got my audio was off.
But you know, Billy, According to the play by play, we have a technical foul here assessed on Billy Donovan.
And yes, there it is.
He's been t duck.
Okay, that's development.
Um, so I don't know if there by the Phoenix is in the bonus, so free throws would be coming up.
Um, Terrence Ferguson have played six minutes with no points.
Deante Burton played 30 minutes with no points because you're like minutes latest Rosie were scoreless than for Phoenix.
Um, the only guy who's played any man's whatsoever without any points.
He's only played three.
And now here's the official ruling, and I tell you what they're saying.
But I'm just gonna take their word for by the first quarter Coming to an end between the Mavs.
The Jets, 38 30.
Utah Advantage on a change of ticker right now.
Okay, Upcoming schedule for Phoenix, obviously this game.
And then, obviously a win here would make the next game on.
It will make the next game, which is coming up tomorrow against Philadelphia.
And then, if they can take care of business, then their final game situations again must win.
And that'll be against the Mavericks that beat.
Okay, see Philly and Dallas.
Stretch to maybe give himself a shot. And I wanted her to use Devin Booker going to shoot.
The Tech free throw is good, so it's 62 56.
That's the technical free throw.
And now Cameron pains initiative for everything.
That's for the, um, I guess they did.
A hostile act as pain will make that.
It's a three point game and I believe Phoenix get out.
Also campaigned in two.
Here we go, Cameron.
That's three free throws, and now it is Phoenix ball.
So that was a nice job there.
I think in some points out, 60 to 58 only down by two.
And they have the ball right now. Phoenix does.
Here is Devin Booker trying to tie this game potential.
Do you believe the three? Here's Booker out now.
Two bridges, bridges.
Here's a corner three not by bridges.
And it Oh, my God hits the side of the back where that's horrible.
I was Oh, man, I was bad.
I was Cameron Payne who did that, by the way.
Um, and 60 to 58 to score 2 32 to play in quarter number two.
And there was a stoppage.
I was looking at some stats, so I don't really see what happened there.
Um, OK, but OK, sees inbounding.
So something happened.
Um, guessing some kind of obviously is some kind of foul on Fikse, as Ricky Rubio will check in for McHale Bridges Rubio, the distributor on this Phoenix team of the better pastors in the N.
A and better pure old school type point guards in the N B A.
And that's even Just call the travel.
They dig travel called CSC at the ball again.
Points here would tie this game up.
A three would take the lead with 2 43 to play in the quarter.
Here is the inbounds pass.
Let's see if Phoenix can answer here.
Is Cameron Pain as a screen set on a buy it in a great screen to campaign layup.
And we are tied at 60.
This is the first time we've been tied.
Whose early? Early. Early on.
In this game, it was like to tour some.
Like that first time since then.
We're tired. Here is Chris.
Paul Paul, Mid range fad Know? Yes.
Found? Yes. Found shot. No. Good.
He's gonna shoot to of the line.
Paul, don't try and take the lead right back for O.
C. S said I We want that lead right back right now.
And then you try and do that right now.
Um, can Chris Paul at the line shooting too, as that will drop.
It's 61. 60 Okay.
See out in front.
And now Chris Paul again to the line.
And he will make that as well.
Chris Paul is 12 points.
This one thunder up by to just over two minutes to play in this first half.
Phoenix in the bonus right now is Cameron.
Pain will take it up.
Pain for three and the lead no good and a whistle is blown there.
I'm not sure what it's on.
I think it looks like it's on the underrating.
Is there Jimmy on him? And he's mad about something.
So obviously, I'm gonna sue.
Um, here's the inbound in the Paula Jovon Carter all game long has been doing this.
He's pressing the point card, whether it's Chris, Paul Liu against or whatever.
And it really isn't really work out too well for him as great defense there.
Okay, See, every time.
Doesn't DeAndre in their fantastic fantastic defense, but still okay, sees ball 12 2nd shot clock.
Wanted to get to play in the half.
See down by Chiu Kris Poulsen inbound.
And he will do just that into, um and laugh. Good.
Points on the board again for O.
Announced a four point thunder advantage.
How will the Phoenix responding? Needed points here? You re guardian Drayton in the post.
Here's a shot off rebound badly.
Phoenix did a great job during the gap, and now they're losing it again.
Here's Chris Paul, 9.
5 left in the quarter college, kind of running around here.
Shot clock and 10.
He's doing a good job on the clock and laser of a pass, but a little bit off areas badly couldn't corral it.
Phoenix will take over in this one with 1 26 to play in the quarter.
Ricky Rubio taking it up years Booker Devin Booker given Carter's open in the corner, look at him and years DeAndre and gets in the post kind of team.
Tough shot, no good rebound by Paul Chris.
Paul Taking it up here.
Paul Driving Good pass out of this column.
A scholar at the Pole.
We have another minute left in the half screen set.
Here is Chris Paul again.
10 seconds on the shot clock, 55 seconds in the quarter.
Call deep. Three.
Devin Booker, 48 seconds Booker coming in.
He's taking us time now.
Gary is badly guarding him.
He's in the corner.
Booker driving layup, Tough shot.
Good And the foul.
Devin Booker with the end one finish water play there by the superstar from Phoenix.
Devin Booker willing his team, the points there, a situation where they really needed.
I'm not gonna understate how crucial it is that Phoenix gets some points here and makes us closer before the half.
And Devin Booker steps up in what I really believe is a very, very crucial point in this half.
And now Booker will shoot his end one free throw trying to make it a one point game 35.
5 to play dumb Booker's 18 points in this one, now trying for his 19 that he will connect.
He is 19 and this one 64 63 k.
C out in front, nearly losing the bowl immediately, but they get it back.
Right job, Cameron. Pain being a pest.
They're on the defensive end.
Here's my Scala to Paul. Paul lost it. He did.
Jovon Carter! Great steal! Here's a thing on the break eight Nama Jam and for the first time.
Phoenix is out in front.
20 seconds left in the half.
65 64 Sons Advantage.
Wow, What a job there by Phoenix.
That's how you finish your half.
Now, can I get out of the half with the lead? Chris Paul wants to respond. Here's my Scala.
32 Here's a three.
And what a way for Phoenix toe end.
The first half they needed it desperately and they got it.
And now they got the lead.
Fix out in front.
Wow, What a way for the half to end in the first quarter, O k C outscored Phoenix 37 23 the second quarter was the complete opposite with Phoenix at scoring.
You are watching N B.
A basketball right here on the next network.
We'll be back for half number two, about 15 minutes.
Seeing as that wow
