The ending of Tuesday night’s controversial finish to the Suns vs. Lakers led to some hilarious initial responses on social media.

But none may be better than what Jusuf Nurkic had to say to Skip Bayless.

Bayless, defending the Suns, tweeted out, “Suns just got screwed,” which then led to Nurkic replying, “Never thought this MF would be right, lol.”

Unfortunately for the Suns, the absence of Nurkic also played a large role in the loss.

After he got caught up in some foul trouble early in the first quarter, Nurkic was prevented from playing as physically as he typically does.

Nurkic tied a season low with three points as he took just three shots.

However, it is crucial to note that the Suns still maintained a +12 advantage during Nurkic’s time on the court, in stark contrast to a -16 disadvantage when his backup, Drew Eubanks, was in play.
