    5 straight east coast with 2 back to backs against the top teams is just brutal.

    6 nationally televised games in April

    Yeah, April is going to be tough. Let's hope the Suns depth serves them well.

    I am calling that 4/28 game against the Clippers a big fat L. 5th game in 8 nights coming off major travel.

    that's a tough 5 game roadie. They have another east coast 5 game roadie before that which is all pretty winnable. wish those two swings would have mixed and match a little more with good and bad teams. gotta make hay against all the teams we should beat with a tough looking second half schedule.

    that all starts with a W tonight and taking care of business on the rest of the games until the break.

    The 76ers, Nets, Celtics, and Knicks are all in the same division. Probably would have hit Toronto if they were playing there but instead we get the Bucks to kick things off.

    I was going to say that would be the best division in the league but now that the Suns are good, the Pacific is probably the best with us, Clippers, Lakers, Warriors, and Kings.

    I kind of like releasing the schedule in 2 halves, like they've done. Its definitely helped us get more nationally televised games. No way would we see so many if they were all set at the beginning of the year but we're tearing things up.

    I think it was Cheese who recently pointed out how good this team is on the road. They seem more locked in and I agree. I didn't even think of the Covid restrictions being a reason for them stepping up and being more focused but it looks like that could be benefiting this squad.

    Yup. Always a good sign for a team to be able to play on the road.

    4th best record in the league,

    in March.

    take that in.

    and then there is the loss column.

    opportunity to pass the Lakers.

    Second time for Booker this year. Was the other weekly award in February also? I believe it was, which should put him as a front runner for player of the month.
