Game Day: Lakers (28-14) @ Suns (27-13), Sun 3/21/21

Post by Superbone » Sat Mar 20, 2021 11:57 pm

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSAZ, NBATV, Spectrum SportsNet

Let's not take the AD- and LeBron- less Lakers lightly. Take them out early and let the bench get some run. Ayton is due for a double double.

Go Suns!!!

Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

He was sitting behind the bench last game so not really a surprise
Still as seen across the League, he is going to need some time to fully catch himself but either way
8-) :) 😊💪👍

The Lakers are by far my most hated team in the NBA. I really hope we spank these MFers and send 'em packing. Any fans in the arena who show up to cheer for LA can kiss my behind, too.

Can't let the role players step up and go off - guys like Schroder, Harrell, Kuz, Caruso, THT or some scrub like Wes Matthews.

Suns still haven’t learned how not to play down to the level of their competition. I’ve been reading John Wooden’s book, A Lifetime of Observations and one chapter made me think of the Suns. The chapter is entitled, The Infection of Success. Some excerpts:
You become infected with success when you think that your past is going to have an impact on your future. Learn from the past, don’t live in the past. The infection of success can lead you to live in the past, to believe that what happened before is automatically going to happen again. When that occurs you have been infected by success. You have control only over the present, right now. Your control exists now, in the present, right here. How you respond to past success can be damaging if you let it infect your thinking, if you let it diminish your preparation in the present for the future. Then you’ve been infected by success.
I think this is affecting the Suns right now. They lose to lesser teams. We need to do our best each and every game no matter who our opponent is.

The loss to Minny should keep us from thinking that we’re “automatically” going to beat anybody.

You would think. But also the loss to the Kings early in the season. And for over 2 quarters they played the exact same way against Minny as they did the game before.

Didn’t give Payne the flop, why’d they give Caruso the flop?

I'm really sick of the refs
Only one quarter in but adding on to the last couple games, well season in all it's just ridiculous man

Refs give us a foul, but it actually stopped Galloway’s easy bucket

We’ve gone 11 deep so far. Nader only played 4 minutes, but he did a lot: 3 points, 4 boards, 2 assists, 3 fouls
