    I don't think we're going to go one and done but even if we do, this has been a good season AFAIC. Short of the two stacked squads, I really don't think any other team is out of our league. The problem is that there are several other teams that probably (and justifiably) feel the same way.

    I don't think they plan on any resting of players until they clinch top 6 seed.

    I think making playoffs meets offseason expectations but I think it’s appropriate to adjust expectations mid season when facts warrant and they do here. A first loss would be a disappointment at this juncture.

    Yeah I hope so. I think this team when firing on all cylinders should be able to at least make it to the western conference finals.

    Who said I didn't enjoy the win? I did.

    I am just hoping for better, because I want playoff success.

    I think the playoffs are such a mystery right now, I'm just enjoying seeing them win and push to the #1 seed by whatever means necessary.

    That's setting the bar awfully high. I'd need great odds to put money on the Suns making the conference finals. They're good, and it's exciting, but they aren't that good. If they can win their first-round matchup and be competitive in the second, they'll have done very well.

    Ceballos missed the '93 Finals.

    True but I think he was only playing 11 mpg in the playoffs before the injury. Idk whether he was playing hurt or it was the Dumas factor.

    This seems about right to me. Conference finals would be a miracle.

    You're right and I had forgotten that. It's weird, because I remember thinking on the eve of the Finals that being without Ceballos was going to be a big loss.
