Playing the Lakers and Clippers will be a particularly tough order Tuesday and Wednesday because they are back-to-back games played both home and away.

I have to admit I hope Bally goes under. They are rumored to have a standalone service for next season, but it's supposed to be really EXPENSIVE. I just want them to tank so regional games are picked up my local networks or some other option. Bally sucks.

I'm none too pleased either as it keeps me attached to DirecTV. It's the main reason I haven't switched to streaming.

If the Suns win does that close the door on the Lakers playoff hopes? Normally I don't care but I can’t stand the majority of Laker fans. It would be nice knowing we took them out back and ended it.

I think it does.

Now go to your hole.

I miss that chip on the Suns shoulder and the next game mentality.

It takes effort and focus to win. I'm bothered they forgot it. I want that team that hates to lose more than anything else in the world.

It's not that easy but a Suns win certainly helps. Here is a good article on it.

I'd rather knock the Lakers out of the play-in. There is nothing better than that.
This. I would rather be the team that knocks them out verses sitting all of our guys and maybe that results in contributing to them getting in.

My thoughts exactly. I know so many people me included who are getting rid of traditional cable. It’s the future of TV

It’s a flat out joke that local games can’t be seen. I pay for league pass and NBA TV because I travel for work and the Suns games are even blacked out on that when I’m back in town.

The NBA really needs to figure this problem out

We should let the Lakers win to meet them in the playoffs.
Chances are Anthony Davis will be injured again before the playoffs start. lol
TBO records aside nothing that happens REALLY matters until the Playoffs start anyway.
Monte will have the fellas ready.
CP3 and Book will be ready.
Bridges is down to play crazy D
DA will? be? there? maybe?
Next 4 games are tune up games nothing more

Oh it’s a must win for the Lakers huh. What we’re all those other games
Are the lakers pretty much eliminated from poffs? I thought they were to far back even for play in
