Time: 8:30 pm AZ (7:30 pm PT/10:30 pm ET)

TV: FSAZ, ESPN

It's here! Opening night of Suns basketball for the 2020-2021 NBA season. The Suns have playoff expectations after adding future Hall of Fame point guard, Chris Paul. Devin Booker says enough is enough! Third year phenom, Luka Doncic has other ideas. Tonight, the battle begins.

Go Suns!!!

That’s what I’m talking about!

I’ll be honest. I think it will take a few games at least before the Suns get their act together. I hope I’m wrong.

This year will be better than the last one. That is good enough for me. Win or lose doesn't matter this early. Just play with your heart guys.
Let's go now.
I still predict a win tho. 111-99.

Suns blew out the Mavs in the opener two years ago. I remember it well because I thought Igor was the man for one night.

Suns have the better roster, so they should win this game. I'm excited to see Bridges defend Luka, and find out who complains to the officials more, Paul or Luka.

Porzingis is out, right? I'm really interested to see how Paul plays compared to Doncic, and what we do to try to stop Doncic on defense.

Go Suns! I’d love to see a win first-up but it’s hard to be over confident based off what we’ve seen so far in the very limited preseason. I think Dallas looks more likely in this one to me but hope to be wrong (and am still optimistic about the season overall)

Without KP, if we can keep THJ/JRich etc. from going off, I think we can handle a big Luka night. Let Bridges and Crowder take turns defending him. I think we can win. We’ll see how we do when our backup bigs are in.

We will win this one. Most of our top 9 guys looked ready to go in the preseason. These guys have a chip on their shoulders. The Mavs should be worried about how they will defend us.

Figure it will be more Dwight Powell, haven't heard about Cauley Stein in a minute but either way looking like if Damian get 15-18 minutes tonight that he might get a double double and quickly change perception around here :D

That would be awesome. I would rather expect less and get more.

He started the last Mavs game I watched which was the last pre-season one and he played 20 minutes according to the box score.
Go Suns!
