Michael Porter Jr. is PROBABLE.
P.J. Dozier is OUT.
Will Barton is not on the injury report.
MPJ is my biggest concern going forward. DEN coming back depends on him getting out of this funk. If we can bottle him up, DEN has no chance even with Jokic putting up MVP numbers.
His back was bothering last night - you can tell. An 80% or less MPJ isn't effective.
Hopefully the Suns will be ready for the Nuggets and haven't gotten complacent or overconfident after the first 2 games. We are the superior team but we need to continue playing like it.
Those who followed this team all season knows they have a bad habit of playing down to their opponents and I'm afraid that could happen in these next 2 games. The Nuggets are a better team than we've seen so far.
Playing in Denver and that elevation won't be easy. We need to start these games better than we have been because we won't have our crowd cheering us on and that elevation will gas our guys earlier than we're used to seeing.
Eddie Johnson says the Suns are built for this.
Hopefully that remains the case for the rest of the series.
I was in Vegas during the playoffs in 84 and was watching the game in the bar right next to the sports book (I think it was the Stardust) for our matchup against the Jazz. It was a quiet Sunday but midway through the 2nd quarter a group of young Jazz fans showed up. It was a back and forth game that we won in OT but every time the Jazz scored this guy would jump up and scream BOOM. I've never used the word since.
ha! It’s only used to punctuate big runs at this point. I’m planning on silently using to annoy Ouchie this weekend since I’ve been told I can come down to watch Game 4, “but can’t get crazy.”
Sounds like a workable plan. I can't imagine it not annoying him. But I can't imagine it staying "silent" if you're drinking a few during the game.
we never drink watching sports. Which is weird, because we grew up very much enjoying doing so and going out. But almost never at or watching a Phoenix sports game together.
That is a surprise. I stopped drinking a couple of decades ago but for a good part of my life alcohol and watching sports went together like peanut butter and jelly.
My little brother and I have sent BOOM texts for years when the Cards win.
I find that I don’t focus as well (shocking, right? Drinking and losing focus) and I like being sharp while watching sports.
Understandable. I find that I don't focus as well too but as an Arizona sports fan I often found that the only way to retain my sanity.
