Game Day: Heat (28-25) @ Suns (38-15), Tues 4/13/21

Post by Superbone »

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: BSAZ, NBALP

I'm a little worried about this one being a back-to-back after our second half let down that required heavier minutes last night. Let's see what the guys have in the tank tonight and if they're ready to battle. You know the Heat are. They are gaining momentum after basically shutting down Lillard in their last win. They also bolstered their defense with center Dewayne Dedmon recently.

Go Suns!!!

My prediction is that the Suns will spend about 3 minutes down by ~10, about 7 minutes down by ~4, about 14 minutes in a close game, about 13 minutes up by ~4, then another 11 minutes up by ~10.

Are those our season averages?

That was my estimate based on that graph posted in the other thread. Not exact, as I didn't see the actual data, just the image.

I hope we don't tip off down 10.

But I do prefer we are up at the end of regulation.

Lol, I like that, play to a handicap and get the guys in the right mindset and kick that lackadaisical stuff.

I don't care if we do start off 10+ down as long as we win. Especially if it's only for 3 minutes. ;)

Sloppy turnovers plus nonexistent defense. Gotta tighten things up.

You Phoenicians don’t know how lucky you are not to have to watch 500 James Wiseman League Pass commercials every game.

Rough start, but Ayton is playing really well. Also, F.U. Trevor Ariza.
