Here is the Suns injury report. Bol Bol is PROBABLE.

Looks like Grayson Allen will play.

Is this the first time we've had everyone but Lee available? I thought there might have been a game earlier in the month where we had that but don't remember.
I think we almost did but then Yuta was a late game scratch.

Really anxious to see the team almost at full strength (minus Lee) against the Hawks.

You think we stink… and also should go 7-0 on a long road trip? These two ideas have a difficult time co-existing.
I don't think we stink.

I think we are not good enough to win a title, but we should absolutely be the 3 seed if we play to our talents.

There is not a team we have played on this road trip a 3 seed should not beat - especially when in both losses we had leads in the 3rd quarter.

Yes going 71.5% as winning percentage on the road would be a resounding success. Every team chokes away a couple games on the road
We have different definitions of resounding success apparently - that implies to me something out of the norm.

Yes a good team is only expected to go 5-2 on a road trip - that is the norm - not a resounding success.

Sorry… even expecting a 3 seed (which we aren’t) to go 7-0 is completely unrealistic, much less a team right not that ISNT a 3 seed because one theyre still learning to play with each other, not to mention being down starters throughout the road trip.

The two best road records in the NBA at 15-9 or a 62.5% winning percentage.

The next best is the Suns at 14-9

Your expectations are the issue here, not the norm

Yup… going 5-2 would be a 71% winning percentage for the road trip. In other words, playing at a clip higher than any other in the league on the road. The idea that wouldn’t be a resounding success for any team, much less one that a month ago was left for dead, is extremely unrealistic.

That would seem to be on point with the Suns roller coaster showings. They really need to play like they have something to prove.
This is a completely different team from the CP3 ones, but I have PTSD from the Hawks just repeatedly routing our butts in Atlanta when we were an established contender.
