    Holiday is better but they wouldn't have needed to off their next 4 first round picks to swap the two if they didn't extend Bledsoe and let.Brogdon walk in the first place. I wouldn't say Holiday is that much better than Bledsoe either, maybe 1 first but not multiple and definitely not 4. I believe its 2 and 2 swaps, which is a lot.

    They overpaid because it kept Giannis there.

    Lol I was just going to post the same. And it don’t matter if you win big like we do or win ugly like the bucks did. 2-1 is a series. I really hope we come out swinging, don’t take them lightly and walk away 3-0.

    I get making Giannis happy but they really should have kept Brogdon initially and then they'd be in a better spot today. Having a backcourt of Brogdon and Holiday or Brogdon and Bledsoe would be better than what they have now. Ultimately they cheeped out with Brogdon and were in a position where they had to sell low on Bledsoe to get Holiday.

    i really don’t. Who is going to score for them besides Jocic?

    I think they literally can’t score enough points to beat the suns, unless the suns play abysmally.

    Just look at their wins vs Portland. They scored 120, 126, and 128. They also scored 147 in double overtime. They can score, our defense has just shut them down very well in the first 2 games.

    We’ve allowed a lot of nobodies to score against us when we play lifeless. We haven’t seen it in the playoffs, thank goodness. But anyone that’s watched the suns know we can play down to really bad teams. If the suns now consider the nuggets really bad after shellacking them twice it could easily happen in the altitude with their return home, barton getting more run, and if porter returns to health.

    If both us and Utah take care of business, I think the NBA is in for a completely unexpected war/classic series for the WCF.

    we’re both very very good TEAMS, with wild home courts.

    portland does not play defense.

    I just don’t see the suns letting up on defense. Our shooting may fail us, but it’s not likely.

    I actually am expecting a sweep.

    Jazz shooting this well from 3 makes them extremely tough.

    Jazz 50 points on 3’s. I don’t think I want the Jazz any longer.

    60 points from 3's. that's all they do, bomb 3's and attack the basket. They shot 20-39 from 3. Had 32 points in the paint and hit 13 free throws. That's 105 of their 117 points.

    They'll be a tough matchup stylistically.

    They’re doing this without a PG.
