Without Haliburton they are still a very good team. We need to avoid giving up easy 3pts in the first quarter like we did in last 3 games. And we ought to switching our off. sets more frequently and avoid too much simple feeding to KD or feeding to Book plays. Adjust in game to keep up our def. intensity. We should be fine.

They are a good offensive team, but they are terrible defensively.

As long as Suns don't have a terrible shooting night it is very winnable.

Indy has been losing since acquiring Pascal, hopefully they don't figure something out on Friday.

It sounds like the Pacers will be a handful, not like they weren't in their last meeting.

I am so ready to go all in again with this team but we have been burned so many times as Suns fans. If they dominate on this trip I am going to fall right into the trap again. LOL.

The problem with getting your hopes up too high with this team is the likelihood of injury always being present, and our total lack of depth to lessen that issue.

It's not just that but this team has a rich history of ripping fan's hearts out. It's what happens when you exist for 55 years with no title.

This is where I am at. We are such suckers. haha

I'm waiting a couple more days to buy my tickets to the Wizards game next Sunday. I just don't want the floor to fall out from under us before I jinx everything.

I spent so much money last year on tickets. I have been hesitant but I am sure I am going to bite if this road trip is good.

There’s gonna be a KD 4-6 week injury at some point. We have to win as much as possible before that inevitability comes to pass.
