Game Day: Spurs (26-28) @ Suns (40-15), Sat 4/17/21

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

Need to finish the homestand strong. Spurs on a back to back after having lost to Portland in the waning seconds last night in San Antonio. Suns have the toughest remaining schedule of the contenders. Next up...at Milwaukee.

Go Suns!!!

Sucks for Cam, I'm sure it'll be an adjustment playing with a mask. Can't catch a break this season.

He caught a break alright. Just not the kind you want.

The Suns are going for their 10th win in a row at home tonight.

I will say this, just from peeping Around the League threads and then on fantasy league player updates. I know I'm guilty of just expecting it's a given to have our guys playing. We haven't done this Rest thing with CP3 or Book and I know Indy will probably worry about CP missing games until our season finishes. It really is crazy the amount of players missing games though

Early stuff with Dario and the Cams but our availability has really been solid this season. Long may it continue 💪🙌

I also love that teams rest their guys against us, implying that they know they're likely to lose either way, so they don't even try. That says a lot about how we are perceived around the league this year.

Or the Spurs know if they make the playoffs, it’s as a 7 or 8 seed and they’d rather keep us and utah up there instead of the Clippers.

Edit: I don’t actually believe this...it seems strange to me that they aren’t trying to win. They’re in danger of dropping out of the play in all together.

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Exactly what I was thinking. We have become a scheduled loss. Nice.

They probably don’t mind that so much. Get a good lottery pick and restock for the future.

How is this team not ready to play tonight? They see Utah lose, and have a chance to gain ground, and look totally disinterested.

We are not really getting to run our stuff
Not good to get down early to Spurs because Pop is gonna be very smart with timeouts and probably not let us get a sustained run

Yeah, a Suns scheduled loss.
Never, NEVER, underestimate a Popps coached team.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)
