The Suns head on the road for three games.

They play at the Thunder on Sunday, the Lakers on Wednesday and the Kings on Friday.

By the way, they return home to play the 76ers on Saturday, so it will be on the second night of back-to-back games.

The Thunder are 34-36 after losing to the Raptors.

Suns are 38-32 after defeating the Magic.

When: Sunday, March 19th

Television: Bally Sports Arizona

Radio: KMVP 98.7 / S: KSUN

I didn't like the way Booker was moving, hope he's better come Sunday.

Monty said he was dealing with overall soreness. He should’ve rested him at some point in the 4th against the Bucks. Holiday is obviously very physical and Book ran outta gas. Glad we’ve got 2 days off. SGA is gonna play Sunday. OKC is a solid team who’s fighting for their playoff lives.

Yes. Booker has been playing too many minutes of late. This is what Monty had to say about it.

I am more concerned about playing Booker into the ground than KD coming back. I think last night was a perfect example.

Yeah, well it's not much of an option. We barely beat Orlando with him.

We legit could miss out on the playoffs if we don't play him.

The Suns don't play again until Sunday but playing the Kings and 76ers back-to-back, away and home, on Friday and Saturday could be brutal.

Maybe. I mean if he wasn't on a back to back I would imagine he would have been more efficient in less time. However, we need KD back. The sooner the better. It makes the starting lineup a ton better and by default makes our bench deeper.

Yep. This team needs to hang on. This is one of the few times I wish the regular season wasn't coming to an end. Usually, I can't wait for the playoffs to get started.

The Suns flattened out before going into the playoffs last season but they had the room to coast. No such luxury this season.
