Absolutely. We don't win that game last night without Torrey but there were a lot of players that gave us just what we needed. Other than Saric, we probably needed every player who saw minutes last night - incredible all around team performance.
Yupp. 100% agree. Suns don’t have an enforcer type and Torrey brought that edge. The reality is, this team has to have a belief and an unconquerable will/desire to win basketball games.
I’ll be honest, Dallas took our hearts in game 7. So there’s games where we “quit” because once you do something, it can become habit forming. There were games last year when we were down, I knew we’d make a run even if we didn’t win.
The Finals in 21’ was the perfect example. Was I bummed we lost…yes. I do think we were a better team than Milwaukee but they made plays when they had to and we didn’t. Dallas wasn’t better but Luka’s bravado and scoring put us in a hole we couldn’t recover from.
I love this team as infuriating as they may be sometimes. We’ve gotta play harder than our opponents full strength or not since we really don’t have a consistent number 2 option behind DBook.
Sorry for the long post lol. Good win Suns. And Ja, hold that L
