hoping for a miracle but expecting a massacre - I'd like to stay as big as possible tonight to lessen the Luka bully ball - infact I'd much prefer to play him physical for once - he's going to cry either way - just put his ass on the floor all night and make it a Christmas to remember

I can see the Suns losing. It's 50/50 in game sevens. You don't want to see your team just getting obliterated. It's funny, people are making things about his numbers in close out games, but to the eye test I remember feeling only Booker and one other player were actually giving it their all in that game. We got curb stomped in that game.

37 minutes

11 points on 3-14
3 rebounds
2 assist

He was clearly all over the place his shot just wasn’t falling right.

Going to be hard to be big without Nurk.

I know people here moan about Nurk not being good. It's obvious when he goes to the sidelines that our defense gets way worse without him out there. Eubanks has been struggling. Azubuike gave us some nice minutes when he was in there. Hopefully he gets some more run.

Gordon starting puts us at a defensive disadvantage. I hate it.

Had to pull the game up on my burner phone - really thought there'd be local coverage but nah

Gordon provides nothing on D. Luka right by him.

Dallas is playing pretty sloppy tonight, only reason it’s close so far.
