If I had spare cash, I would bet the Suns +5.5.

That's a pretty big line. For what it's worth, Sagarin has Denver as only 3.5-point favorites. If the game is close at the end, it's unlikely that the margin of victory will be more than 5 one way or the other.

DeAndre and CP3 are struggling to find their way on this new look offense. But Landale makes his own offense, same for Payne, the two are not dependent on each other

That's not Monty's style and I don't think a coach should give any attention to what the spread is. That's something Book or CP3 should mention though as leaders in the locker room.
It might not be but there is nothing wrong with using psychological motivation.

DeAndre is having a problem, because the offense isn't focusing on him right now. I'm not saying that is a bad thing, since it should definitely go to Book. However, in Game 4 when Durant was struggling, we should have worked him in.

keep Porter Jr. under wraps, Keep Murray guessing and if Jokic gets his?
So be it. This is a must win for Denver and not so much Phoenix, imo.

Durant struggled in game 4? He was 11/19 from the field. He started 1-9 in game 3. Agree though, wish we could create more opportunities for DA. We’ve gotta help Book and KD as much as possible.

I think it is pretty much must win for both.

Typo, I meant 3.

I said this in the last game thread, but Jokic is what everyone thought this guy was gonna be. I big, athletic center.
