A great showing for sure. This team overachieves like none other. I honestly didnt think we would have this good of a record.
I’m curious why you think we are overachieving. That means you don’t think we are good enough to be in this position.

The freaking Lakers are going to get the walking wounded Nuggets in a first round get healthy cakewalk.

healthy Lakers v. Healthy Nuggets would have been a hell of a matchup.

I'm still hoping the Lakers fall to 7 and the play in. If they faced Golden State in that game then a hot game by Curry could send them home really early, healthy or not. The Warriors have to be the team no one wants to see in a play in situation because of Steph.

They would have to lose 2 straight games. 7 and 8 play each other to determine who gets 7 seed, 9 and 10 play to determine who moves on to the 8 seed game and plays the loser of the 7 seed game for the 8 seed spot.

Yeah, I just looked up how it works and its different than I had thought. 7 plays 8 and 9 plays 10. The loser of the 7-8 game plays the winner of 9-10 to determine the 8th seed.

Stix, right now, doesn’t look like he belongs in the keague. Lots of work to do before next season rook. Lots of work!

Yep that's what I said. If you told me at the beginning of the season we would be in second place overall and making a push for first. I would have called you a bright eyed fanboy.
I expected middle of the pack maybe fighting for a play in game. I'm thrilled things have played out they way they have, but no I didn't expect this at all.

I. Think everyone would have reacted that way at the beginning of the season. Doesn’t mean that the Suns don’t belong where they are right now.

Anyone have anything to say about Spo ripping the refs for not calling a flagrant 2 on Carter (the Butler play where he turned his ankle)? Spo is claiming that Carter went under him.

I've replayed it a bunch of times. To me there is no way it is a flagrant. Carter made a simple box-out type of turn that every player is coached to do. Butler landed with his foot slightly forward, not sure if that is his regular shooting motion and landing.

In any case, I probably wouldn't gripe if they called a foul on Carter, but nothing more than that. It's just one of those unfortunate things that happen in basketball. Anyone who has played basketball any length of time has landed on someone's foot and turned an ankle like that.
