Suns News: Coronavirus Break

Post by Superbone » Sat Jun 06, 2020 11:31 am

From one of Gina Mizell's final articles for The Athletic:
The Suns’ playoff path
Under the traditional schedule, a six-game deficit for the West’s final playoff spot with 17 to play would have been borderline insurmountable, particularly with a six-game road trip on tap for late March/early April.

This condensed format creates an even greater challenge.

In order to even make the playoffs, the Suns must first use their eight remaining regular-season games to jump San Antonio (27-36), Sacramento (28-36), New Orleans (28-36) and Portland (29-37) and shave two games off eighth-seeded Memphis’ lead (assuming the Grizzlies hold on to the eighth spot). Then, the Suns would need to beat the Grizzlies (or whichever team was in the eighth spot) twice in a row.

So you’re saying there’s a chance?
Not great odds but it's not like they were great before either. At least we get to play some meaningful games. At least we get to even play. At least we get to watch the Suns.

We're going to win game 1 in large fashion before we find out that Ayton is suspended for the next 4 games.

I didn't even realize you need filters. (Should have known.) Just ordered those and they'll arrive Tuesday. Then I'll be ready to hit the San Diego area and represent our Suns. My favorite is the Suns burst.

I found this rare live footage of Rubio personally wiping the "masks" on his tender areas to get them ready for sale:

ahhaha

At least we know those can't be Devin Booker game worn because they'd be too small since, as IG thot said, his anaconda is "14 inches and as thick as a poland spring".

Rankin with an interesting article about whether the Suns should funnel more offense through Ayton, rather than Booker (not sure if it needs to be an either/or at this point:

“I’m done with not making the playoffs. I’m serious. This is probably the last year I’m ever not making the playoffs.” Devin Booker-- April, 2017
