Total bummer the Nets couldn't pull it out.  Also a total bummer the Suns are done after the run they went on.

Them losing to the Warriors cost them the season lol

Suns will be the only team to finish the bubble undefeated

Grizz and Suns are record wise tied so the NBA hosed the Suns for eliminating them just by virtue of a better head to head record...they should have been allowed to kill off each other in a one game battle.

Even going 8-0 should have been given an incentive asurance of a play-in berth regardless of record.

Maybe something the league can think about in the future.

Very disappointed the Suns don't have an opportunity to participate in a play-in game.  It definitely gives the league something to think about moving forward.  Some sort of round robin between 8, 9, and 10 would be a very cool permanent solution.  This gives the fans an early taste of playoff basketball, and hopefully leads to a more entertaining matchup for the #1 seed.

There would definitely need to be some sort of qualifier for the tournament to take place.  For example, the #9 and #10 teams in the West last year finished 9 games worse than the #8 Clippers.  Who knows what the correct gap would be, but I'd suggest no more than a 4 game seperation in order for a #9 or #10 to qualify for the play-in tournament.

Nobody knew the Suns would go 8-0 in the bubble. If anytgimg it's their problem that they lost one or two lousy games earlier in the year that cost them a playoff berth. Weren't they also on a losing streak at one point too. And Ayton getting suspended didn't do them any favors either.

They'll try again next year, and they'll be better.

I'm not complaining the Suns were screwed or anything like that.  It's just disappointing as a basketball fan because they found their mojo in the bubble and it would have been fun to see them get a crack at the play-in games.  Either way I think the NBA has a compelling reason to look into making this a permanent format.  At the end of the day it's all about adding excitement to the product.

Houston mailing it in on defense. Not concerned.
