Deandre Ayton said Devin Booker was on him all night to keep looking to score. “Score the ball. Score the ball.” Over and over again. – 1:34 AM
Ric Bucher @RicBucher
You can tell me Devin Booker is the Suns’ best shooter. You can’t tell me he’s their best player. Or MVP. #CP31:15 AM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
Deandre Ayton was impressive tonight. Scored in every way for the Suns with 28 points on 20 shots. Post ups. Off the dribble. Hit a 3 too. Ayton has come a long way. Without Booker he stepped up like he needed to before CP3 owned the 4th. pic.twitter.com/lc3D3N5hFq12:52 AM

Cam Johnson gets his third foul with 9:28 left in the second quarter. Suns cannot afford foul trouble without Booker. Crowder in for Johnson. – 10:36 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Devin Booker with a little burst off the bench with his teammates contesting the call that the shot clock ran down after Nance late 3 hit backboard, not rim.
Out Game 3 with mild right hamstring strain. #Suns up four with 1:05 left in 1st quarter. – 10:26 PM
Allia LaForce @ALaForce
Booker is so emotionally invested in this game 3. He’s coaching from the sidelines nonstop and during huddles. “No hand checks!” He’s fired up. @NBAonTNT @suns – 10:18 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Cam Johnson subbed out mid 1Q with his second foul. He’s near top of list of players who’ll get more opportunities with Booker out. Shamet in for him – 10:13 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
With Devin Booker out, Herbert Jones gets to spend more of his defensive time on Chris Paul. On other end, Bridges is guarding McCollum. Suns were making #Pelicans start their offense too far out from the paint, but Ingram drive and Jones Eurostep yields a couple layups – 10:10 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Devin Booker gave CJ McCollum a little shove from the Suns bench after the play was whistled dead. Crowd didn’t appreciate it! – 10:03 PM

CJ McCollum and Devin Booker had some words. Didn’t see who started it, but crowd starts booing – 10:03 PM

Saw two very important people in the hallway outside the court area.
1. Devin Booker doing a stretching exercise involving the hamstring.
Out Game 3 with strained right hamstring.
2. #Suns team owner Robert Sarver in the same area. – 9:13 PM
Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin
It’s a bummer watching the Bucks without Middleton and the Suns without Booker. Everyone says next man up, but it’ll be interesting to see if both teams can absorb those injuries — or whether they will collapse early. – 9:10 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Two weeks ago my 12 y/o said her chrome book was broken. I checked, it had a splotch but was still working. One week ago, she says chrome is broken. It was broken. Today I spend 300 on new chrome. 18 y/o calls from Maryland and tells me she broke it on purpose

Monty Williams would not say whether Landry Shamet will get the start in Devin Booker’s place for Game 3 tonight
(Sorry about the typo in the first one if you saw it!) – 8:06 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
“We’ll find out.” #Suns coach Monty Williams when asked if Landry Shamet will start for Devin Booker (hamstring) for Game 3 in New Orleans.
He’s started 14 games in the regular season for Booker and averaged 12.4 points and shot 40.9% from 3 in those 14 starts. – 8:04 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Monty Williams not tipping his hand on the starting lineup tonight.
Suns other starting 4 – Chris Paul, Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder and Deandre Ayton – have played 165 mins without Devin Booker this year.
They have on OffRtg of 110.2 and DefRtg of 98.6 in those minutes. – 8:04 PM

Going from a 1-12 start to consistently improving to winning several do-or-die play-in games to beating the Suns in Phoenix …
The Pelicans remain underdogs against a team without Devin Booker, but their confidence sits at an all-time high.

Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
“The key to the game is keeping Kevon Looney in the game,” Mike Malone said. “No disrespect to Kevon Looney, but when Draymond goes to Nikola it’s just a different animal. So yes, it is hard to rely solely on Nikola Jokic because of all the attention.” theathletic.com/3265344/2022/0…8:59 AM

Draymond Green on Game 3’s being a hard game to win:
“My guy Keys texted me today, and said, man, we haven’t been great in Game 3’s we’re 11-9. I said all right, cool. We got to figure this one out and we were able to come out with it.” – 1:45 AM

Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee
I don’t want to get too ahead of myself but the mere thought of Draymond Green trash talking the Grizzlies & the entire city of Memphis has me on “sitting down to a plate of Gus’s fried chicken” levels of excitement. – 1:20 AM

Steve Kerr: “For Draymond to battle him (Jokic) all night, and to make that play at the end was just a huge part of the win.” – 1:10 AM

Michael Malone says he joked with his assistants that “the key to the game is keeping Kevon Looney in the game and no disrespect to (Looney).” That’s how impactful Draymond has been and was tonight. – 1:07 AM
Ric Bucher @RicBucher
For a player as fundamentally sound as the Joker, I’m at a loss as to why he hasn’t dropped his hips to widen his base on post ups. Naturally lowers his dribble & creates space, all of which prevents getting picked. No way Draymond should reach the ball without fouling him. – 1:07 AM

Draymond stripping the ball from Jokic feels like a defining moment of the playoffs. Draymond is all the way back to his prime level, the heartbeat of the team and the best defender in the nba – 12:46 AM

4th closer will be an interesting decision for Kerr tonight with Wiggins kind of out of it. Porter and Iguodala the other possible choices, although seems like Andre has just been the backup for Draymond at this point. – 12:21 AM

30 coming off the bench is 1. Is true professionalism but 2. That dynamic is just scary.

Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
Golden State’s defense is cracking. Draymond twisting an ankle is one thing but it was happening before that. Just losing assignments lefts and right. – 11:51 PM

Will never forget Draymond calling Joker’s Sombor Shuffle that “right-footed joint.” – 11:48 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
A little turn of events here: Aaron Gordon is battling and showing signs of life in this series. And Draymond Green went down and stayed down for a little bit before walking back slowly to the bench. Draymond will remain in the game and looks OK. – 11:46 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Draymond Green limped to the bench after that last contest. Appears that he’ll stay in the game. – 11:46 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Might’ve been an ankle twist for Draymond Green on that last contest at the rim. Stayed down for a few seconds and grabbed at it. Warriors called timeout. Limped to the bench. Looks like he’s going to stay in the game. – 11:44 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Draymond goes down. Looks like his leg locked up. Tie game – 11:43 PM

Offensive foul on Draymond to begin the 3rd. Monte was doubled over holding his face and then checked for blood. Refs reviewing for flagrant. – 11:34 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
Warriors scored 138 points-per-100-possessions in that first half. They shot 67.5% from the field and hit 12 3s. Draymond Green has 9 assists. Nuggets are down 10 despite that offensive show. – 11:21 PM

Draymond, Wiggins, and Payton going 5/7 for 3 is an absolute killer. – 11:02 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
This shaping up like one of those Draymond Green triple-double nights. – 11:00 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Joker checks out with 12 points (5-of-7 shooting) and 6 rebounds. At every stoppage, Draymond is working the refs trying to tell them that Joker is hooking him. And though the #Nuggets are trying Joker v. Draymond, the refs are letting them play. – 10:39 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
Ten great opening minutes by Draymond Green. – 10:38 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Jokic has to attack Draymond Green while playing small with the Poole Party lineup. That is how you can get Draymond Green in foul trouble. – 10:27 PM
Drew Shiller @DrewShiller
Why is Draymond so important to the Warriors’ offense? Because he gets his team sooooo many good looks when it doesn’t look like there’s anything there pic.twitter.com/GnRN0wMdIS10:23 PM

Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Few players can expose limitations like Draymond. He’s taking millions off Aaron Gordon’s next contract right now. – 10:23 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Last Nuggets offensive set, Draymond completely just sagged off Aaron Gordon and camped right on the edge of the paint. – 10:22 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Aaron Gordon is attacking Draymond inside but he’s had some Charles Smith-like sequences inside with missed layups and putbacks. – 10:20 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
I don’t know if this is unknown or not, but attacking Draymond Green is not the best decision for an offense to make.
Has he fouled without a whistle? Yes. Still, stop attacking Draymond. It’s not wise. – 10:20 PM
Drew Shiller @DrewShiller
Draymond Green making 3s gives me liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife – 10:20 PM
