Game Day: Suns vs Mavs, WCSF Game 1, Mon 05/02/22

Post by Mori Chu »

Time: 7:00PM AZ/PT (10:00PM ET)
Place: Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ
TV: TNT

Time for the Suns to tip off their second-round series against Luka and the Mavs. Injury report seems to state that all Suns will play except of course for Dario Saric who is out for the entire postseason. We can do this.

Go Suns !!

Did they just announce? I checked their twitter feed and the NBA site and couldn't find it.

BTW, I hate that we care about the refs. It shouldn't matter right?

Kennedy lives in Phoenix and I feel like he seems to ref in the other team's favor as to not show favoritism.

Zach Zarba is widely viewed as a 'good' official by fans across the league, and I think he does a fine job as well. But I'll always remember the Suns regular season game on NBATV that highlighted the referees during the game and it felt to me like he was trying really hard to call the game by the book. The refs were mic'd up and there was bunch of extra coverage about them reviewing plays and communications at halftime. It just felt really forced and Zarba was overly performative for an referee.

Right, that was when the young female ref threw out Grizzlies head coach, Jenkins. :D Got her 15 minutes of fame in there. Of course, it was also the game the Grizz sat all their starters and soundly beat us.

Interesting. I’m sure we’ll throw lots of different looks at Doncic during the game and also try to make him work hard at the other end. It’s all about making sure he’s running on fumes by the fourth.

This will be the first time I miss part of a game in these playoffs. I hope Monty will be OK without my halftime adjustments.

How can you make halftime adjustments if you don't watch the first half? Somehow, I think he'll survive though. We got you covered.

No lie, I honestly look forward to it and it's pretty much a tradition of our 2022 playoff run to me.
