GAME DAY, NBA FINALS EDITION — GAME 5 — MILWAUKEE BUCKS @ PHOENIX SUNS SATURDAY, 7/17/2021

Post by LVSunsFAN »

Time: 6:00 pm AZ (6:00 pm PT/9:00 pm ET)
Place: Footprint Center (Formerly know as Phoenix Suns Arena), Phoenix, AZ
TV: ABC

A big focus will be keeping turnovers and foul trouble low for us, while crashing the boards.
Something tells me CP3 and Ayton will have huge games.

Let's help this guy by cruising to a nice, stress free win!

Go Suns!!!

Do it for Bone!!! I predict a zero turnover game for CP3 which means Suns win without much trouble.

Polly needs a win to smile about. Let's go get her one!

By the way, I'm happy to say that I will be attending this game in person. I decided to splurge and buy a few tickets. I'll be there making as much noise as I can to help cheer on our Valley Boyz. GO SUNS!!

It has been nearly 90 playoff games since the last time Chris had back-to-back games with 5 TOs or more. Let's keep that streak alive.

It turns out the game will not be played at Phoenix Suns Arena after all. :P

Monty said everyone on the team is expecting Chris Paul to have another horrible game. :P

This is getting silly. We need to pick a name and stick with it.

Ha ha! Thanks for the shout out guys! Can somebody please get word to the Suns that one of their diehard fans had a heart attack in the 4th quarter of Game 4 and that I'm going to need a nice easy win in Game 5 like LVSF said?!

Plus, I just learned about the arena name change via the subject post. I had seen that name in my emails from Phoenix Suns and Downtown Live but I hadn't opened them yet. Just seems like a weird arena name. I'll adjust, I guess. Better than Talking Stick Resort anyway.
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!

Monty goes for the rare triple negative! ...but comes up short. not + not = positive + not = negative.

The funny thing is that I started writing the Game 5 thread just after Game 4 finished to move on quickly like after Game 5 in the last series but had to stop due to my increasing heart tightening to start the 911 process. I just deleted it.

One more thing about this. Smart of Footprint to make the change just before the last Finals game in Phoenix rather than having to wait until next season. (In case you were wondering...Suns win 5 & 6.)

Let's go Suns! We have to take this game, start well early and don't let go. We have to take it to them. I'm hoping for a big CP3 game with 0 turnovers, 15 and from DA and 30 from Book. Jae and Mikal hitting 3 would be helpful as well😉

These are the finals, we are here for a reason, we have to take this opportunity!

This is the game that CP passes Steve Nash and Larry Bird for 7th all-time playoff assists, right?

You left out PHX Arena (for about a month during the offseason). :P
