Suns can't play around. They need to finish this series. Denver is going to get a ton of rest.
Yupp. I doubt Kawhi plays but we need to lock in no matter who is on the court. Don’t give these guys any hope of coming back and start fast. The home crowd should be going bananas.

I'm sorry. But this starting unit needs to pick it up tremendously to hang next rounds... Brutal beatings will come if not. Okogie and the bench can only do so much...

Man… KD with another 44 minutes.

Thank god this team has three days off now. KD can’t keep playing this amount of minutes and stay healthy.

Michael Wilbon is pretty adamant that we are going to beat Denver in the next series. Wow!

Jalen Rose- calls the Denver/Suns series a coin flip.
I was confident, but the way we have played I would now have to favor Denver.

Suns seems to be playing with a "business as usual, regular season" mentality, especially the big three. It's like they are going to beat the Clips and are just working through how best to develop as a team while they do it. Honestly, the Suns won three, and if it weren't for some offensive rebound lapses this should have been a sweep already.

The big minutes for the starters might be a problem, but there is a benefit in giving our starting unit more time together to gel.

Also it's still better to play big minutes in 5 games than have to play an additional game or two. This series has never felt like it's been in jeopardy to me.

And for those that say if Kahwi was playing, the Suns lose the series, I am not sure about that. With Kyrie on the floor Westbrook shrinks into the background and Powell doesn't drop 40. It's not that clear cut.
