I have to think Chris Paul will get a better reception tonight than Deandre Ayton.

Also, I think Paul will have something extra in the tank coming back to Phoenix for the first time since being traded.

Draymond Green will not play tonight since he is still serving a five game suspension.

Gary Payton II remains out for the Warriors.

It looks like Chris Paul may receive a more enthusiastic welcome than Deandre Ayton.

Back to backs are rough but we're on a winning streak - kinda can't wait to see how an aging CP3 is meshing with Golden State - talk about the odd couple

I’m over the Dallas series but we would’ve given Golden State all they could handle in the conference finals in 2022. Dallas won one game.

So frustrating that we couldn’t get that series across the finish line and let Luka get the last laugh when we were clearly the better team.

I think they would have kicked our asses. That Suns team was so mentally weak and that was a championship tested Warriors team who’s biggest Achilles heel was a big man that could do damage… which we couldn’t exploit because Ayton is such a head case.

Also, when you lose Game 7 at home by 30 points, you’re not the better team.

Well, we’ll never know. We didn’t show up for game 7. We may not have beat GS but we would’ve won more than one game.

We didn’t show up for Games 3, 4, 6 and 7.

And I doubt we would have taken more than a game. We looked like a totally different team, stumbling and bumbling into the playoffs, then almost got taken to a game 7 by a Zion-less Pelicans team.

They were mentally weak and talked a big game, thinking for some reason they had arrived. GS would have taken one game against at home to open series and we woulda folded like a cheap suit under the pressure both on the court and the bench.

The Suns are sticking with the same starters.
