Two losses back from the 5th place Kings. We are still the hottest team over the last 10 games at 8-2.

Feels good to be out of spots 9-12 though. What is going to suck is the Lakers getting the play-in spot and probably beat the Wolves in round 1. The warriors actually look worse than the Lakers and I see the Jazz and Rockets tank to stay within the lottery.

Rockets pick goes to the Thunder.

Ben Simmons is back for the Nets. He looked really good last night as the Nets walloped the Jazz.

Bol finally upgraded to just 'questionable'. Maybe he'll be back before the end of the road trip.

The injury report looks better than I expected, with both Allen and Bol Bol listed as questionable.

All in all, signing Durant worked out pretty well for them.

Acquiring him cost them basically nothing, they got somewhat better while he was there, trading him away landed them a massive amount of assets.

However... he also accomplished nothing, missed the majority of the games he was on the roster, got 2 coaches axed and bailed as soon as things got difficult.

If I was a Nets fan, I'd boo. No question.

Dear Suns, I hope it's not too much to ask but can we get a strong 4th quarter tonight?

This Nets game falls into the category of type of teams Suns struggle with. Tall athletic wings, awesome offensive rebounding. Nets are playing well of late. If they are also hitting 3s, it could get ugly. We need to hit shots and play a ton of Okogie And our bigs have to step up. And for the love of God, get your 4th quarter figured out.

Counting on Bradley Beal in this one -- when we lost by 4 to Brooklyn, it was only Beal's 2nd game back after he sat out for that extended period.

His pace as the ballhandler has been working really well for us. When we use it, that is.

In regard to Bol Bol, the NBA injury report says: "Right Foot; Sprain"

As noted above, he is confident he will return against the Nets.
