    Finals Here We Come!!!

    Not gonna lie, I had some watery eyes tonight. It's been a long 28 years, and all those heartbreakers during the 7SOL years. This team is gonna pull it off. I can just feel it!

    2020-21 Around the NBA Thread

    Bridges got robbed, but screw it. We aren't here for individual awards, but to win it all. Let's hope the lack of Suns on the all-defensive teams serves as motivation for them to play even harder on that end of the floor for the rest of the postseason.

    Magic Numbers for Playoff Seeding (Suns Clinched at least 2seed)

    Just thinking to myself, with 8 games left, how many could the Suns stand to lose and still maintain the #1 seed? Does 6-2 do it? Interestingly we both still play the Spurs twice, as well as Blazers and Warriors once. Where are the wins and losses for both teams? Let's play this out: Suns...

    Suns @ Thunder Sunday game thread 5-2-2021

    I don't think there's anyone who could watch today's game and be happy with the effort of Ayton. He did the bare mimimum. 3 blocks is nice, but 5 points on 3 shots, and 7 boards, non offensive, in 31 minutes of play is just out there to collect a paycheck. Thankfully these kind of efforts from...

    Suns @ 76ers Wednesday game thread 4-21-2021

    Monty HAS to give minutes to Frank at this point, right? Saric is the biggest liability on the team now, especially defensively. Give credit to the Sixers for making it much closer than it should have been in the last minute. Two tough threes and then that heave at the end that still gives me...

    Give credit to the Bucks defense, and also in large part to the Suns' plan to dribble down the clock, they didn't leave Book much of a window to deliver a passable ball to an open teammate. It was get the shot off or 2OT.

    On the plus side, great scorers don't let those that kind of cold streak last for long, and hopefully he's due for a hot streak during this tough stretch of games.

    You can't underestimate Ayton's tie up for the jump ball with Giannis in that 4th. That's something he doesn't do his rookie year, last season, or maybe even in January. The kid's confidence is growing noticeably in the last two months now.

    He barely even got a 2nd season in, with that 25 game suspension, and then the short run before the shut down, and then the 8 game bubble stretch. He still has a lot to learn, but you can see his progression. Making those mistakes he's prone to less and less.

    Playing against an old team seems to do wonders for most guys. Fingers crossed.

    Hopefully Ayton's shoulder is okay. Otherwise our interior defense is 100% screwed.

    Uggh. Loose balls going the Bucks way these last few possessions.

    Bad 3 by Booker there, IMO. Just keep moving the ball and getting an easier shot

    I think it's a little early to say we aren't winning this one, lol

    Suns @ Bucks Monday game thread 4-19-2021

    Yes, you guys are right. Just tired seeing Saric out there getting owned. No Sticks, especially in the midst of this crazy stretch of games. It's a brutal 7.

    Suns @ Bucks Monday game thread 4-19-2021

    We screwed up not going after a decent guy with size to back up Ayton. Saric is a joke in the paint defensively and gets destroyed on both ends by anyone with size and a bit of athletic ability. At this point, maybe throw Sticks out there and see if he can't give us some quality minutes. He...

    Did Frank the tank die? Why isn't he getting any minutes over a clearly struggling Saric?

    Deandre Ayton discussion

    He has certainly seems to have turned the corner in the last 3-4 weeks. His body language has been great, and he's not getting down on himself and disengaging when he makes a mistake like he used to do. Most importantly, we have to remember that he's still just 22 years old. He will continue to...

    What if Suns took Tyrese Haliburton?

    True, but it's clear Sticks isn't that guy this year, and may not gonna be ready next year either. With Paul being 35, we need guys who can help win now, not 3-4 years down the line.

    What if Suns took Tyrese Haliburton?

    Can't say what the future holds, but short term answer is we absolutely screwed up not taking Haliburton, at least this season and possibly next. He's the guy off the bench we needed to lead our 2nd unit. Carter is a great defender and can get hot. Payne can score at will when he's on, but...

    Kings @ Suns Thursday game thread 4-15-2021

    Gotta stop letting these sub .500 teams get back into the games late. It has happened way too often this year, and has cost this team wins. Kings are on the verge of quitting on their coach. Many are speculating that Luke Walton will be replaced in the offseason. This is not a team that should...

    We'll win tonight, then lose to the lowly Wizards on Saturday. It's this team's MO, lol.
