Game Day: Suns (12-3) vs Nuggets (9-7), Sunday 11/21/2021

Post by SunsRIt »

Time: 6:00 pm AZ (5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET)
Place: Footprint Center | Phoenix, AZ
TV: BSAZ/NBALP

Can the Suns shelve the Nugs and make it 12?

The Suns opened the season with a 110-98 loss to the Nuggets and lost 3 of 4 to start the season. Since then the Suns have won 11 straight while the Nuggets have lost their last 3.

Both teams have injuries. Suns: Kaminsky-out, Nader-out, Saric-out. Nuggets: Jokic-questionable, Porter Jr-out, Murray-out.

Tune in for exciting Suns basketball from beautiful downtown Phoenix.

Go Suns!!!

Alright, SRI. Thanks for stepping up! Nice rhyme too! Let's do this. Jokic or no Jokic. It's a fair trade though if he can't go. Jokic/Kaminsky, let's call it even. :P

To be fair, Denver also is without Porter Jr. and Murray ...

Who said anything about being fair?!

And we're without Nader and Saric. Once again... even. ;)

Very good start, Jae with 8 of the Suns first 12 pts. Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon starting up front so the Nugs will be small all night. DA and JaVale could have big games - DA with 8 already and a nice euro step finish in the lane for the and-1.

We seem to have found the offense tonight. No one's been missing with the team shooting 17-22 from the field, 7-8 from 3, 7-8 FTs.

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a 48 point quarter. Suns up by 20 after one!

The Suns are playing with an edge like they have something to prove after losing to the Nuggets on opening night. It also helps that they can't miss.

The only one I remember is when they scored 50 against the Nuggets as part of a 107-point first half.

That edge went away pretty quickly.

57 pts, to be exact. Ceballos had 32 pts in 23 minutes, earning his "point-a-minute" knickname.

I disagree. They stopped making every shot possible and the Nuggets aren't going to give up in the first half.

I like McGee, but when he dribbles a lot, bad things happen ...

Is it me, or is Campazzo the Argentinian version of Patrick Beverly ...? :P
