    On to Denver for Game 3 on Friday night at Ball Arena.

    The Suns also play Game 4 at the same location on Sunday.

    The game will be televised on ESPN.

    Start time is listed at 7 p.m. Arizona time.

    Let's keep it going!

    It looks like the Nuggets are considering going bigger against the Suns in Game 3.

    Unless I am reading the playoff stats incorrectly here is why the Suns will have a shot to get there:

    • Opp FG% - Suns #1 in the playoffs (41.9%)
    • Opp 3-PT % - Suns #1 in the playoffs (31.1%)
    • Pts Allowed - Suns #1 in the playoffs (98.5 points)
    • FGM - Suns #1 in the playoffs (35.6)
    The Suns are literally, so far, the best defensive team in the playoffs. Who here would have ever called this through the first two rounds let alone a Phoenix Suns team?!?!?

    It moves Rivers to the bench so it's not all bad. We have yet to see if MPJ is healthy.

    That could be a challenge as either green or milsap provide a challenge to our smaller forwards. That said I am not worried about book guarding porter.

    Limits the ball handlers that can break down our defense, but most offense runs through jokic so it might not make a great difference to their offense other than banging inside.

    Has anyone else found themselves screaming certain words this season while cheering for the team?

    for some reason I’ve adopted “BOOM!” as my go to. I have to imagine my neighbors think I’m crazy screaming that in joy repeatedly this season.
