That's right.

The Suns (2-3) have to try to break their two game losing streak at the 76ers on Saturday at 10 AM.

Where is the copy pasta from the start of last year (or the year before) with why is nobody talking about the start of the Phoenix Suns, going -- I don't remember what start we had -- and then they got their head out of the dark tight space in which it was stuck.

Well, I feel like the team really needs this game, but I don't feel good about it.

1. Historically anytime the Suns play starting in the morning or around noon they stink.

2. Philly and specifically Maxey are playing really well.

3. While I think Nurk may play Embid ok, I have noticed he is completely unable to stay out of foul trouble, and I don't have much confidence in anyone else on the roster being able to guard him.

I bet booker sits in preparation for tomorrow.

Hang that 10am "L" baby.

Devin Booker (ankle) is OUT. There is some hope he will play tomorrow against the Pistons.

Book going to be his own worse enemy by forcing himself to come back too early one of these days.

It hurts even more, the Suns didn't get a win out of it against the Spurs in their second meeting.

Nick Nurse confirms the Suns have depth.

They really need at least two of their top three to play to be near their best, though.

This…just make sure you’re 100 percent Book. Not 75-80-90. Be fulllly healthy otherwise this can nag and then you overcompensate and something else happens.

I knew Book hurt his ankle again - it was right at halftime against the spurs - but they just taped it up again when we should've kept him out of that game - but what are you gonna do

Now we're once again putting the workload on the oldest horse in our stable - was hoping we didn't play KD 30+ every game to start the season but here we are

It's good to see Bradley Beal being more active before the game even though he is not playing.

Vogel appears to be a what have you done for me lately type of coach when it comes to starting line ups - and honestly I'm good with that
