Tell you what. I'm gonna put as much effort into this recap as the Suns put into the second half of tonight's game.

OKC is good and young and when you give them confidence by not even trying, well you're gonna get your butts beaten.

A vision of the future: Suns TV post-game team interviewing the opponents' player of the game after the win. I've rarely seen that before, but I bet we see it a lot the rest of the season and for a while to come.

Now hit the jump for the best BSOTS gamethread comments!

Earlier, Vince thought he was back playnig for toronto...

Now, it seems he remembered that he’s playing for the Suns…

This one's very observant:

Gortat had his nose broken 5 days ago and it already looks exactly the same as before.

And this was the most relevant exchange of the night:

Hey everyone

Uhm, so hows the game going? Are we playing well? Only down 10 doesn’t seem bad

The end. Thanks Suns.

Okay, one more:

The most exciting thing about the game were the ejections.

Sad. Sad. Sad.

To the asshat that hit me: thanks for the broken arm.

Here's the story on the Dowdell and Brooks ejections...

NBA Official 'Disrespected' Suns' Zabian Dowdell Before Ejections - SB Nation Arizona
A report from someone sitting court side near the incident was tweeted by KTAR radio personality, John Gambadoro claimed that the the official Ken Mauer told the Suns' rookie third-string point guard "to stop being a little bitch".

Dowdell then reportedly asked Maurer if he would say that to him off the court. Maurer ejected Dowdell and then immediately ejected Brooks who also said something to the official.

"Disrespectful, that's how it was. I think it was very disrespectful," Dowdell said when asked what the official said to him. "Obviously the game wasn't going the way we wanted it to go. I just think something like that was uncalled for."

Dowdell video...

Nash video where he talks about not being well but not ready to shut it down...

Gentry postgame. Note first comments are about problem with bench scoring in fourth quarter...

Gortat postgame talking a bit about everything and trying not to talk about mystery incident. Josh Childress was literally standing behind me shaking his finger telling Marcin to shut up...

and Vince Carter (you have to click for this one)....he didn't say much.

Here's a video of Brooks getting tossed as he walks by the ref grabbing his junk.
