I watched a bit of the Nuggets game last night and they looked terrible without Jokic.

If he doesn't play this should be easy.

Jamal Murray is unlikely to play, but I'd like to know who traveled for Denver.

I still remember when a shorthanded Miami team crushed the Suns at home a season ago. The Nuggets will still want to win.
Every team wants to win. It's not about that. It's about the feasibility of winning if you decide to sit your guys out like the Nuggets are doing tonight. Again, I will take an easy win if they win. We need all the wins we can get.

They just reported they are all out on the radio.

Murray, Jokic, Pope, and Porter all out.

Nuggets are scared of us, don't want to destroy their players confidence before we meet them in the playoffs.
Some guys are coming off injury and the others off a back to back. The Nuggets don't need this game like the Suns do.

i will take less competition and a better chance at a win right now. Plenty of tougher games up ahead for us to test ourselves. We needs Ws and guys figuring out how to play with each other first. Hopefully that's what we get tonight.

It's a dangerous path, resting players and not doing everything to win. I'm not saying the Nuggets are.

However, the Suns traveled this path last season and it didn't turn out too well.

Please no jinx. The Nuggets are not in 1st place in the West for nothing.
I think the nuggets or a very good team, but the reason they are so far ahead in the west is that they've been relatively healthy all season for a change. Same goes for Sacramento. There are four or five teams in the Western Conference that could be the runaway leaders if they had not been decimated buy injuries for long stretches. That includes the Phoenix Suns of course

The Clippers lose to the Grizzlies tonight.

It's important for the Suns to help solidify 4th place in the West with a win.

We can’t blow this game. It could give us the cushion needed with tough games lined up the rest of the year.

The Wolves have to trade KAT. That guy is immensely more talented than Ayton and also a bigger dog. He can’t be the leader of a serious contender.

Timberwolves fall to the Lakers at home. The loss of Naz Reid really hurts their bench.
