I would very much like to see how you come to the conclusion that the Warriors are better than us right now on paper. Are you including Klay/Iggy/Wiseman who aren't going to play?
It's really not even debatable staistically for the whole season. Warriors are easily better.

However teams matchup differently and sometimes overall superiority doesn't matter against certain teams.

Also I feel the Suns are playing much better as of the last 5 games or so. With that said they still aren't playing up to their potential.

Iggy is a net negative - dude should not play on a good team. Wiseman also does not really know how to effectively play center yet, although he may figure it out by the end of the season if he gets enough playing time.

Klay is really the only x-factor, and I personally have some doubts he is going to look like the same player. Major injuries and multiple years off are not easy to overcome.

It's hard to argue with the stats but when I responded I was comparing rosters.

Without a healthy Kay Thompson I don't think the Warriors are better especially considering they are missing other players as well like Iggy and Wiseman.

The Suns are missing players too.
Suns are not missing anyone who would get minutes.

The truth is we need more progress from Ayton, bridges and the Cam's then we have gotten so far. I was expecting more progress then we have gotten. Also Shamet has been a disapointment - but I am coming to the realization he just is what he is, and that is why he is shipped to a new team every season.

I seem to have this discussion a lot.

It's not that that players like Kaminsky, Nader and Saric would be playing a lot if they were available. It's the insurance they provide when fouls problems and injuries occur. Those roster spots are there for a reason. It's a long, long season.

I think saric would be playing.

Saric would be getting minutes. It's my recurring speech about the importance of every roster spot.

Things can happen. It's important to be prepared.

I am referring to the team ranking comparisons previously posted.

Yes. The national media persistently says we have no injuries, yet completely ignores Saric and the impact he had on this team last year. Saric would be playing and most likely making an impact.

Oh well. Just win games.

JaVale McGee said Suns not getting the respect they deserve after winning 16 games in a row.

The Suns goal is to get better and win games. It's not so much the win streak.

Devin Booker says it's a big game but it's not the Finals.
