It should be pointed out that Utah is playing hours after us so them losing after we lose doesn't mean they would have lost if we won.

Not that I would want to give them the option anyways. We should be putting them into the must win position.

apparently the Kings are resting a bunch of a players. So much for that idea of them really being motivated after losing by 50 last time they played Utah.

Sucks the Nuggets and Kings are calling it a day but the Suns have nobody to blame but themselves for not catching a banged up Jazz team.

Too bad we could not get one more win. Well, maybe Steph gets really hot. Or maybe the Suns get the Lakers before they are really back to 100% and clicking. Trying to find the bright side somewhere.

Oh yeah. 51 wins.

We play the winner of golden state and lakers play in game
Could Steph go insane and beat the Lakers? Sure. Anything can happen in a one-game series. But it is not very likely. Suns have themselves to blame. One more game is all it would have taken. Still, they have done an excellent job this year.

Can the Suns beat the Lakers? Yes. If the Lakers are at full strength with everyone gelling? No. There is a chance the Lakers will still be gelling though. If you have to go through the Lakers, there might be a slight advantage in playing them early rather than later.

Later, there is the chance that someone else could beat them, but there is also the chance that they get better and start playing together better (the Lakers) as they go. The really sad thing about this seeding is that this team needs playoff experience. Getting eliminated in the first round really limits that learning experience. Going two rounds or more would be a great building opportunity.

It is what it is and no amount of wishing can change it.

Yup. All this. Hope the suns can make it a fight if it’s indeed the Lakers.

The games are played on the court. Anything is possible. The Suns have been beating the odds all season.

That dude is super human. I won’t count him out until he’s out.
