Monty says Kevin Durant has been working his tail off to get back.

Devin Booker says his right hand is fine which he grabbed at Utah.

Hopefully this is true and we can see the full Suns roster on Wednesday.

Good win. I think 1-2 wins likely gets us into play in if everyone keeps pace. Likely still need 2 to 3 more wins for regular playoff spot with 7 games to go. This is going to be a nail biting finish.

Suns on pace = 43 wins
Clippers on pace = 42 wins
Warriors on pace = 42 wins
Timberwolves on pace = 41 wins
Pelicans on pace = 41 wins
Lakers on pace = 40 wins
Thunder on pace = 40 wins
Mavs on pace = 39 wins

Games Left:
Timberwolves
Denver
OKC
Spurs

Lakers

A big game on Wednesday in so many ways.

The possible return of Kevin Durant and the importance of the game in the Western Conference standings.

With Durant any of those game are winnable, do you think we are gonna struggle if fully healthy? **** I’ll take my chances things are tight but only one team has a HOF Durant coming back to help…

We managed 2 wins in a row before he is back. I will take them. To me any win we get between now and he returns is a bonus.

It’s gonna be a tough game. Minnesota is very hot and cold. They have a tendency to fall into turnover/bad shot lulls but they’ve now won 2 in a row against the Kings/Warriors on a back to back.

McDaniels is a really really good defender and I’d imagine he’ll be glued to KD and Book. Gonna need our bench to step up. Towns will play I’d presume but Minnesota has honestly done fine without him. Can’t give up open threes otherwise it’s gonna be a long game.

I wondered if the lack of DLo is more of a positive for them.
