Disagree. Kawhi Leonard is an assassin in the playoffs. And, I think the Clippers, overall, are actually more talented than the Jazz.
Thats tru i just thought jazz had more shooters to stay with suns runs better

I really don't think it matter who the Suns play. If they are screwing around like they did in the first half, they'll lose. If they display that intensity that results in one of the best defenses and offenses in the game at the same time, they will beat anyone.

Jazz are a more disciplined team, but Clippers do have two great players. Clippers struggled against Dallas, and they won't be able to do to Suns what they did to Dallas- Phoenix has multiple creators, multiple shooters, and a bunch of solid defenders.

i love the sound of anticipation with the ball in the air followed by EXPLOSION.

been a long time since AWA had that. Pretty damn awesome.

I love how people still call it AWA.

I heard someone call it the Purple Palace last night which brought back a ton of old memories. We need to petition Purple Mattress company to buy the naming rights and make that name official.

Ooh. Nice idea. Doubt they'll be able to outbid casino money though. lol

Well its called the Phoenix Suns Arena currently. They've been without a sponsor for 2 years now. The Talking Stick deal expired.

When Leonard and George are both on the Clippers are tough to beat.

Chris Paul was cooking in this game. Also nice to see Bridges (and Ayton) having great games at home. Hope they keep it up so it will be a good series (that we win in the end).

I think we have seen it all season on and off. Also against the Lakers in the playoffs.

What's encouraging is the Suns seem to have found the switch.

True but for me what was most encouraging was that for about 10 minutes, CP was the best player in the game. If we can get that CP again, we're in good shape.

That point in the game was magical. Also great to see Mikal's big smile when he was getting buckets. And the pictures of the fans going nuts in the stands.

:clapping:

We deserve this for sticking with the team for 10 hard years.

It was something discussed throughout the year by national media: “yes, the Suns are a good regular season team, but do they have another gear? Chris Paul teams usually don’t.

well, well

Whaaat. How many times have we seen Chris Paul turn it up in key moments of a game? And Booker is not afraid in the clutch. National media should do some damn research before they just type something random.
