We are due for a few more let-down games
I don't know about "due" but us stinking it up a couple more times certainly wouldn't surprise me. OTOH, if we stay healthy, winning it all won't shock me either. It will surprise me a little since it's tough to envision this team playing well for an entire game let alone a 7 game series but losing to the Spurs 3 times this season is the only real Suns shocker as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, I have no clue what to expect. They could do anything from going on a ten game winning streak to not winning for the rest of the year and missing the playoffs and neither would particularly shock me.

I feel like flipping a coin is the most appropriate to determine which Suns team shows up. However, if there defensive intensity STICKS?!?!? Look out. Their offense doesn't worry me (minus the turnovers) as much as the defense that is all of the sudden show glimpses of impressiveness.

thought about posting a poll but do we feel the suns have finally figured it out? are we playing to our capabilities and can we continue to do so?
I am still not sure.

Defensively I think they have, offense still needs work.

Brandon Ingram will be OUT for the Pelicans.

Jose Alvarado, Zion Williamson, and Naji Marshall are QUESTIONABLE.

We kinda own this team.

Right now, we’re the best of the best of the pretenders. Remains to be seen if we’re an actual contender, but I’m willing to keep hope a little more alive today than I was a week ago.

i think we're doing good with kd - we depended on him too much early in the season for rebounds but nurk - i don't think anyone saw the season and durability hes put down - with our new editions rebounds have become less of an issue - as nurk as progressed kd has had to do less

I knew this would happen. I'm just waiting on the other shoe to drop.

I'd love to be wrong but I don't see it. We're not beating anyone at full strength right now.

I like early games but I always forget when they start. Nice surprise to see this was going.
