    Ayton has been playing out of his mind during these playoffs. He's legit been the playing the best basketball of his career during what has been the most important games of his young career up to this point.

    Idk how stupid Perk actually is, there is a really simple answer to the question, if Jokic plays bad Denver automatically lose, if Ayton plays bad they still have CP3 and Devin Booker to bail them out. So Jokic is more important, plain and simple

    It's interesting how conveniently no one mentions that Joker shot zero free throws in that game. How does a man who pounds the ball in the paint not pick up at least ONE free throw attempt? Ayton fouled Joker all night. Ayton also didn't pick up his first foul until halfway through the 4th. Gee, I wonder if that might have affected Joker's shooting.
    NBA refs are biased pieces of garbage.

Max joker might been the dam mvp but the fact is that if Ayton wears him down this will be a long series for Denver.. Guess what Max you are lost cause no one is worried about the Lakers..

    ESPN are fools for putting Perkins on the air. One of the stupidest takes I've ever heard. If he wants to say this is a different ball game playing against the Suns because they play defense, let me remind you that Jokic put up numbers against Utah and the Clippers last year in the playoffs, two of the better defensive teams in the league. Just keep watching, Jokic will have some monster games in this series. The Suns may very well win this series, but I guarantee you it will have nothing to do with Deandre Ayton "dominating" Jokic LMAO.
