Phoenix Suns (35-26) vs. Denver Nuggets (42-19). If the Nuggets win it will be 4 in a row against the Suns and their 7th straight win. Suns have dropped 4 of the last 6. Booker will be out with an ankle injury that likely be a 7-10 day window.

Suns currently in 7th place in the West.

Suns at Denver,,, with Book out and Nurk questionable, I see this game like Custer's Last Stand at the Little Bighorn battlefield

I foresee the Mavs moving up to 7th, and the Suns going off-roading.

Very little hope, but hope I'm wrong.

Ugly one tonight. Can we just concede and keep everyone uninjured?
Maybe work on lowering turnovers or something else you can take moving forward?
Maybe when KD is double teamed, have someone move to open space?
I know these are difficult concepts for this coaching staff....

Its like now you play Saben and Roddy, not in a near comeback win where Bol doesn't sniff the second half.

Exactly!
Although, tbh, Bol looked a bit out of sorts last game. But still better than the alternative.

You know it’s a testament to your team not having an identity when you have no clue what team is going to show up for each game.

I definitely think that’s part of it but it’s more than that IMO.
Book isn't playing because he's injured. Are you talking about "Identity"? You could have a point there, but again, that's a failing on our coach, who for some reason loves actually not coaching and letting Book and KD ISO at the end of EVERY SINGLE GAME.

Happens to be injured when playing too many minutes and also playing in blow out games when we're either clearly winning or losing.

Go Suns!



Good to see Dallas, Golden State and LA Lakers all behind us. If we finish with a better record than all of them at least that is something to cherish.

Need EG, Allen, Royce all show up tonight! KD and Beal will get theirs and apply pressure but if Nurk can play like last game and make Joker work who knows if we make some shots! Just like to see a game with low turnovers protect the ball and rebound and don’t get outshot by 10-15 shots that should be doable.

Nurk lives to play against Jokic - lost his job to Jokic - I think he still feels some type of way - oh made i hope i didn't just jinx the Nurkster
