It’s all on you now, haha. No Butler, Dragic, or Nunn for Miami. Can’t take this game easy though. Miami always plays hard.

I was just about to make the thread. Thanks for doing it, Wally! Hope we can get another win; that will keep our hopes alive and make things really interesting for hate-watching the other teams this weekend. Without Butler or Dragic, we theoretically should be able to beat the Heat, but they are talented and well-coached so you can never take them lightly.

This is the type of game I was referring to a couple of days ago. On paper, the Suns should win, but Miami always comes to compete like you said.

Tread lightly.

I think we’ll come to play. The team knows they have to win every game and they’ve shown up for every game so far. I’d be worried if we jump out to a big lead in quarter 1 and let off the gas. Always hard to turn it back on again.

Back with another pregame post

Was always intrigued by Bam and his development been good to see not to mention he was $$ for me in fantasy league before the craziness. Talented kid but that is the last of any praise I giving tonight

Again this is another Ayton needs to have his motor running matchup. Knew nobody could check Book on Indy but even without Jimmy they do have lots of bodies to throw at him so hopefully my boy Cam n Mikal have the shooting touch tonight

Let's keep the streak going , come.on guys ! 8-)

Who does Miami have off the bench, they might be pretty short when the starters are out

Ice cold.

The Heat are a fun team to watch on offense, contrary to the Suns who are mostly just wasting time trying to get the ball to Ayton and failing at it.

Ayton needs to learn to use his size advantage. Like, NOW

Our 7' center dribble drives and passes in the lane to the 6'4" guard who dunks it with two hands.

Bizarro basketball.

This looks like Payne's comedown game. Mikal missing some 3s we need him to make. Heat just moving too much for us, getting layups, switches and frustrating us.

Heat have defensive wings, but not really one who can defend Book. DJJ not strong enough. Crowder has been torched by Booker many times(primary defender in the 70 pt game). Iggy might be the best option, but I’m not sure what he has left.

Can they get Amare to teach him how to be agressive?

Book keeping this one from getting out of hand early
Nobody else has come to the party as yet

Don't like Frank against Olynyk who has played well or even Solomon Hill of all ppl just cause he is so slow footed

The Kaminsky minutes are our biggest weakness. Just not an nba player

Imagine Frank Kaminsky getting blocked by Kelly Olynyk.
