Rest Book. All 7 games are winnable if KD returns on Wed.

And would the 6th seed be all that bad if the Nugs, Clips, Warriors, and Mavs or Lakers were on the other side of the bracket?

I would like book to sit out. But Monty wouldn’t allow it. And book wouldn’t allow it.

I hate the load management era but you can’t be pushing it with Book right now coming off back to backs and lots of flying miles. Has anyone ever gotten off a plane and said “my hamstrings feel great”? Same with CP3. Be smart, Suns.

Remember when the Suns were clinching the playoffs early.

Lots of questionable players for the 76ers.

Maybe I'm missing some protocol, but if a player is listed day-to-day like Ayton, why not list him as questionable or doubtful on the official NBA injury report to keep the other team guessing rather than list him as OUT.

IIRC, the Suns listed Booker as out for a game last season but then played him which caused an uproar.

It's because of gambling. The teams are supposed to supply the most accurate info as early as possible.

Yes. I think that was what it was all about.

Still, I don't see listing Ayton as questionable is deceptive. Look at the number of players the 76ers have listed as questionable.

Over: People accusing other people of saying things that didn't say.

James Harden is out. Embiid and others are questionable.

This is how Monty views calling timeouts.

Devin Booker may have some athletic tape on his left thumb.

Booker opens the scoring with a jumper.
