Don’t look now, but the Phoenix Suns could very well end up playing playoff basketball. The upstart team from the desert is now 3-0 since the 2019-20 NBA season resumed in Orlando last week.
Their latest win might have been the Suns’ most improbable of the season. Tied at 115 late in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers, star guard Devin Booker nailed the game-winner over Paul George while he was falling to the hardwood.
The degree of difficulty on this shot was ridiculous. And it has Phoenix looking like a well-oiled machine with five regular-season games remaining at Walt Disney World.
Like clockwork, the Suns’ social media team decided to troll pretty much everyone and anything after the game-winner. It brought the NBA of petty to Disney in a big way.
The Suns then went after fans who predicted a big game from the Clippers.

The media wasn’t left unharmed by the Suns’ trolling, either.
Not to be outdone, the Suns’ new profile picture on Twitter is legendary.
These troll jobs might have been even better than Booker’s game-winning shot. You can be the judge.
