lol got to keep this train going. How did we look? In control the whole time like the game wasn’t going to slip away? Did Denver show any signs of fight or have they thrown in the towel?
Bolted to a 21-9 lead. Let them creep to within 4 at half. Came out blazing in third and pushed lead to 14. They may have cut it to 7 thereafter. But eventually pushed to 20 and Denver cried uncle. Just a dominant series so far.

. Anyone questioning if jokic makes his teammates better doesn’t watch any Denver games except these suns games and might not have the greatest b-ball IQ.
Is this coming from someone who watches alot of Denver games?!

Thank God James Jones didnt sign Ibaka like I wanted him to. Dude was on the shelf all year and now is officially done with back surgery.

Crowder has to be the best MLE signing of last offseason at this point, right?

Looking like a steal.

This team is dee
Dario Saric with 7 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in 10 minutes.

Cam Payne with 9 points, 3 assists and 2 steals in 17 minutes.
This team is deep. At least 9 guys making significant contributions in these playoffs. During ssol, our offense would go to **** when Nash got a rest, but this team just continues to execute methodically no matter who is on the floor.

Suns coaches do a good job of preparing the team for the defense thrown at them.

Chris Paul said the Suns coaches do a great job of preparing the players for all the defenses that teams can throw at them and that attention to detail hasn't changed all season.

After reading that article about all the variations our offense runs I’m now really keying in on our sets. They’re really prettt incredible. And the variation is fairly mind boggling. It’s just a lot of pick and roll. It’s a ton of screens coming from different angles and players with the players having different pin downs or flares that create alternative passing lanes. It all works bc Paul and book can kill those midrange shots. But it’s really a sophisticated offense.

Ayton’s gotten so much better at setting picks and Paul is a master at using them. I remember all those times watching Brandon Knight break the wrong way off picks from his big man. This is so refreshing to watch.

Okay... I’m calling my shot now.

Booker ends this series on Sunday with his first ever buzzer beating game winner.

Are you talking about beating the buzzer to end the first quarter? Because I find it unlikely there will be any starters on the court to end the game. This is the most lopsided series I've ever seen the Suns play in, the Nuggets simply offer no defensive resistance. It never felt like any game was ever in doubt since the 2nd half of game 1.
