gonna be a dogfight! again. Well, one dog so far.
Wolves didn't even shoot well, and dominated. That's a scary thought.

Reduce turnovers, make shots, grab rebounds, play defense, get out on fast breaks, have at least neutral refs
who call hacking & mugging fouls.
sounds simple, doesn't it? Not so with this group!

I think for my health, I'm expecting a loss, and will be thrilled with a win.

I think we will know by half. If the Suns are turnover machines in this game by halftime? It's over.

I don't believe. I think we get beat decisively. The Wolves are hungrier.

Honestly thought this would be a 4-1 series in favor of the Suns but I could very well see the Wolves finishing us off in 5. If we don't win tonight, and decisively, then this series is over.


It wouldn't surprise me if this team went down 0-3 and forced a game 7 either. I just don't think this team can win the series as a whole.

we will win today but will still lose the series. This feeling is reminiscent of the last years nuggets series. But we all know the end is near for this season.

My kid rooted for Chargers loses at the end of the season because he wanted our coach fired. It worked for the Chargers!

Yup. This team has shown who they are all season. No reason to believe they will change.
