No Adams - sarcasm.
No BI.
No KAT.
Clips falling.
We match up well with the Kings.

Here is the injury report. Nurkic is QUESTIONABLE. Shai is DOUBTFUL.

The no BI Pelicans just beat Milwaukee. Suns need to beat them both times - but probably won't.

Clips have always killed us we always seem to get peak Kawhi, Kings are certainly beatable but I don't think any game against them is a gimme - sadly I think they are pretty equivalent with the Suns.

I am very curious to see us matchup with the wolves again - I think we matchup ok with them, but it's been so long I'm really not sure.

It already started at least 5 games ago.
all we have left remaining are playoff teams but yeah - and we still don't know who we are - do we just play the nuggets well and the spurs like crap or are we kinda close to figuring things out? these pre-offs could give us some indication but then again that hasn't been the case all season - never know how it's gonna go - will we see the phx suns or the phx shooks?

Well I don't know for sure either, but after 70 games lets just say the evidence strongly points to this team being a pretender.

Almost all of the teams issues have not been fixed. The bench has gotten better and the defense has gotten better, but the lack of three point shooting, the 4th quarter issues, and the turnovers are still massive issues.

we've kinda boiled it down to 4th quarters and turnovers but there are remnants remaining - bench is functioning now - defense has shown improvement too but im not calling this team a contender

I think Nurk sitting out this game would be better. Eubanks has been up and down but I think having a more athletic team helps in certain youthful matchups.
