    like we can talk about the Jazz down their 2nd and 3rd best player losing a close game, but what about the full strength suns playing them on a back to back?

    Also, the Suns have had the best health luck in the entire league. no covid issues, their starting 5 has missed 16 total games and 11 of those were from their worst starter crowder. to put that into perspective the jazz are at 38 games right now and I know that we have been super lucky.

    Health always plays a major role in a team going a long way.

    The Warriors are pretty clearly pressing hard to win and stay in the 8th seed and they were pretty tired in that Suns game but gritted it out anyhow. They get a nice break then Pels/Griz to close out the season and hopefully end in 8th.

    Pretty interesting that to start the season I said that their goal for the year was to learn what they had on the roster and finish in 8th place in the west ... 2 games to go to hit that nail on the head.

    Functionally that's just not Curry's bag. He's always been a ceiling raiser, as opposed to a floor raiser. His skill set allows for greater playoff success, as opposed to cranking out wins in the regular season. And as Scoots said they play at about a 50 win pace with Curry, and it stands to reason that figure would be a bit higher in the Eastern conference.

    This is so bad. Ugly basketball. No wonder ratings are down. That and the Jazz and Suns are leading the west.

    Thatís why a Chris Paul mention for CP3 is crazy. Suns are deep too.

    Tonight, Denver started
    Jokic
    McGee
    Gordon
    Rivers
    Campazzo

    Itís pretty funny

    Can we all agree a 41 year old man who has played a combined 82 games over the past 6 seasons should probably hang up the sneakers?

    zone defense/ben simmons. Heat and bucks have the recipe to destroy us. Not at all worried about the nets. Heat/bucks have legit defenders/play zone/can switch off guys and recover quick and know how to play ben simmons. Its why ben simmons as good as he is cant be here next year. Anytime joel looked at the ball or put his hand up for the ball tonight the heat would sway off of simmons and double or trilple joel before he even touched the ball. Joel 9 shots being doubled and tripled and never being allowed to touch the ball for 6 points. Ben simmons 6 shots 8 points never being guarded. We need a big change come this off season

    TBF here, IIRC we've only won 5 games officiated by Tony Brothers in like 4 years.

    i get it and the officiating was def 1 way no doubt. It was bad... But it wont matter man. The heat and bucks are the perfect teams to end us. Ben simmons and curry as good as they are are easy to cover. Zone up/sway away from ben and even curry to a point... double and triple joel and just switch and adjust if you are these teams. You have ben sitting in the clint cappella spot not shooting and curry on the other side of the court away from joel with a super slow release which means teams even when joel passes out can just switch back over. We cant and wont ever win with a pg who cant do anything in the half court. Ben is a damn good player but he cant be our pg here with joel. Its wasting joel
