    Is Dallas going to win another game? I'm still ticked off they blew that last game. They so had it...until they didn't. I'm just hating that team for some reason.

    Perhaps because they won a championship before the Suns.

    It was nice when the Suns had company.

    There is a grouping of eight teams that are terrible. I can't remember so many bad teams as the draft gets closer.

    I'm hoping the Nets win some games down the stretch because they do not own their own pick. Of course the same with the Lakers.

    2 games separate the bottom 8 teams. And only like half a game separate the bottom 5.

    But we have played more games than most other teams. They get a chance to "lose the ones we won"...

    Suns have a brutal schedule, all these other bottom teams play each other.

    After last nights game, for the first time I feel pretty confident we are getting a chance to get one of the potential superstars in this draft... to the point I'm actually more worried we pass on one of them for the guy i dont see superstar in, doncic than I am we dont get a chance at all

    The difference maker for Dallas winning the Championship was the addition of Tyson Chandler, when he was in his prime.

    Unfortunately for the Suns, we didn't get him until the twilight of his career -- no back-to-backs.

    Tonight's games.

    Detroit v Clips. If the Clips win, their record is better than Miami. If Detroit wins, they pull within a half game of Miami. Win-win.
    Sixers v Pels. Pretty much the same story.
    Cavs v Hawks. Hawks win puts them into a tie with Phoenix record wise.
    Bucks v Heat. Wow. Who do you root for. I think its the Bucks now. Their pick likely won't convey, so the best Miami pick possible is best.
    Nuggets v Rockets. A Denver loss puts them in a tie with Miami. Definitely want a Denver win even if it is not likely.
    Wolves v Bulls. Bulls win is better for the Suns.
    Kings v Blazers. Kings win and the Suns move ahead of the Kings in the lottery rankings.

    So. Teams we would like to see win tonight. Hawks, Bucks, Nuggets, Bulls, Kings.

    Enjoy.

    BTW. If you go to the tankathon mock, you can see how important it is to get the #4 lotto seed or better. I think the mock does pretty good at determining each team's draft preference when they run their simulations. At the #4 seed, we are pretty much guaranteed to get either Young or Ayton. They obviously have the Suns preferences as #1 Ayton, #2 Young #3 Doncic.
