    No injury report as yet for the Suns. It should come out later today.

    Monty's goal is to make the playoffs and afterwards they will talk about resting players.

    Hope we catch the Mavs in r1 but they could get taken out in the play-in. As long as we stay at #2 I feel confident getting to the semis.

    Really? After watching the Spurs game I'm not confident we'll even win another game.

    thats a pretty large overreaction.

    you can’t tell anything from one game.

    Right now I'm hoping the Suns avoid the play-in spot.

    You can tell everything from one game, just ask any of the talking heads on ESPN.

    at worst, Popovich cracked the Suns code with a young team who executed his strategy well,
    at best it was more lopsided expectations

    regardless, we've surely got more losses ahead than our conference competitors
    hopefully we only drop one or two spots
    but due to circumstances we may not lose any advantage in potential match-ups anyway

    it doesn't take much for some to go negative on the team after a letdown.
    i don't know exactly what went down here with 1sun but it's bs that he was banned, regardless of how consistent he was.

    no it wasn’t. I was one of the biggest proponents of bringing him back and within 24 hours, he made it clear that all he wanted to do was live in an alternate reality to make other fans as miserable as he was.

    for me it was showing up in game threads only when things looked shaky and then immediately disappearing when they turned around. That’s a troll. Whether they intend to be or not.

    I am wondering whether we will make the playoffs at all. And now, its too late to tank to try to get a high draft pick. We should fire James Jones and Monty immediately.

    This team has responded great to losses all year long. This will be a big test to see how that fares against a very good opponent on the road.
