Suns are right back at it again on Thursday playing the Clippers at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

Phoenix has won nine games in a row.

The game will be televised on ESPN.

Start time is listed at 6 p.m. Arizona time.

Let's keep it rolling!

A couple of wishful thoughts. I hope Chris Paul can return for Game 3 and Devin Booker's nose is not broken.

We should find out tomorrow about at least one of them.

The clips gave it their best shot in the 2 games here and now find themselves playing a team with 9 playoff victories in a row and who are a very good road team, and oh yeah, it looks like CP3 is returning. How am I doing? Better than I deserve.

I'm borrowing this tweet from the Game 2 thread.

There is optimism in the Suns organization that Chris Paul can return for Game 3 on Thursday.

I’ll be shocked if books nose isn’t broken. As someone who’s broken his nose a couple of times, that swelling looks like classic broken nose.

I was watching his post game presser and he was told by the training staff it wasn't broken when he was getting it stitched but he didn't see it himself until after the game and he said it looks awfully crooked not to be broken. It looked pretty bad in that video also.


Its 4:08 in the video.

It’s as simple as this:

A win Thursday and the path to the title is as clear as it can be.

A loss and we have a series with the Clippers

Yep say it every time.
Biggest game of the season coming up.
A must win.
Boy George gonna be pissed.
Time to take the Clippers hearts, cant give them any hope.
Would feel a little better with a Point God in the lineup.

Every next game is an important game. We take this next game it will hurt them bad. They will continue to ride this we came back from an 0-2 thing so lets just send them to 0-3 and wait for the next excuse.

Already hearing it.. first game was a feel out.. second game was minor tweaks that almost got them the win. Now they have the formula to win..

I expect the Clippers to come out with a flurry to start this game. Suns just have to stay composed and stay in the game early. They have a real opportunity to really step on the Clippers throat in this game.

I'm going to say this...The Clippers showed a lot of grit. They did everything they could do to pull it out. They made key shots...even resorted to trickery at times. The Suns are the better team and I think they know it that's why they tried everything. But now that loss took a lot of wind out of their sails....emotionally and otherwise. They have to win the next 4-5 games...a monumental task against a superior team. But let's just hope we get the next win against a team thats shown a lot of heart.
