We may not even get that chance if the play-in tournament happens after the regular season is concluded.

their schedule is pretty easy down the stretch and they had been playing decent without Murray the last five games. Would be a surprise to see a big stumble down the stretch, but they are dunzo against any contender in the playoffs, IMO.

And Murray is out for the season with an ACL. Sometimes you just have to take advantage of the window that opens in front of you--even if it really sucks for other teams.

Goodness knows the Suns have been on the injury side of that story often enough.


Time to see how good Gordon can be with some talent around him.

the end of the season will be interesting to watch to see if there’s any jockeying for the top seeds... or to get a slightly lower seed to get more favorable matchups. If the Lakers are healthy, I’m not sure I want the 1 seed and then have to face them in round 2. Also, do teams jockey to try and get Denver in the first round?

Some teams may try to tweak the standings but the Suns and Jazz do not appear to be those type of teams.

Denver is still a very good team even without Murray. I'm not sure there are any easy outs.
