Right! I am not sure how his player would respond to that. I just see it as an opportunity to take their spirit and then set them up for a mercy kill to end the series.

Maybe it has worked all season but I think as a player and as a team this would get old especially for the players who are giving it their all.

Perhaps their coach should give the Suns defense some credit.

Nuggets Coach was brutal in post game, even talking sweep by Suns

He's no Westphal predicting a s series win
This is because there is nothing else he can do. He doesn’t have the personnel to tweak the starting line up or change strategy. He cannot go small when his best player is his center. He can try to get his players to play harder. That is it.

It;s amazing to watch a playoff game by the Suns and NOT worry about a loss at the end of the game. There was about 7 minutes of relaxing junk ball at the end!!

The Suns blowing out teams in playoff games is something to be savored indeed!

So fun last night. I was laughing as the suns refused to guard Rivers from beyond the arc and most of the team as well. They were like jack it up we’ll get the rebound

Well, it didn't sound very motivational. Sounded more depressing and discouraging. We'll see what happens game 3.

After game 1, they were all about not wanting to be "soft" the next game. They lost by 25 and the toughest move was Gordon trying to push Crowder around.

I am not impressed and would like to take back my Suns in 7 prediction and shorten it up a bit.

I hope this does not backfire on Will Barton.

Second game in a row where jokic had to defend team against coach:

"I don't think so that guys quit," Jokic said. "When you're losing a lot, you can always kind of put your head down. ... But I'm not sure that we quit. I didn't quit."
