The way the Suns are playing, I am not sure it matters who we face next.

We still have to win two more in this series. I think we will come back to Phoenix up 3-1. However, if we allow them to win 2 in Denver, the series momentum will swing. Can't let that happen.

I agree with this. Its a little too early to look ahead and the next rounds matchup. While we we have a nice lead over Denver, we're only holding serve right now. Until we win on their home court, we're not really ahead in the series.

If we were Bucks fans, y’all would get so sick of my Giannis bashing. I can’t understand for the life of me why that guy is averaging 10 THREES A GAME in this series.

especially when he’s only made 3/30!!

The Bucks traded Eric Bledsoe and the rest of their first picks for all eternity for... Eric Bledsoe II.

and as if on cue, he comes up with the biggest play of their entire season.​

I expect Game 3 against the Nuggets to be a lot like this one.

the suns are not playing that great. Denver is just a very inferior team in their current condition.

what was that? I could not believe how impotent both teams were.

some terrible shot selection too.

it does seem like the nets are a bit Jedkle and Hyde, sometimes they look unbeatable, other times they play like crap like tonight.

That trade seemed off to me when it went down. It was a slight upgrade but I wondered why some people were raving over how much it improved the Bucks. They dealt a 2nd Team All Defense undersized combo guard for a 1st Team All Defense normal sized combo guard. It wasn't.much of an upgrade on the court and considering the additional pieces, Milwaukee went all in for it.

If they had simply matched Brogdon's deal a year prior then they never would have been in that position. They didn't pay Brogdon because they paid Bledsoe, and that was a mistake from the start. They should have dealt paid Bledsoe for whatever they could, straight up, after paying Brogdon.

Yep. I have absolutely no idea why they paid Bledsoe instead of Brogdon. Made zero sense.

Holiday is much better than Bledsoe. Im surprised Suns fans who’ve watched Bledsoe play don’t realize how poor his bbiq is and how overrated his defense is.
