So the truth is probably somewhere between "Kamaru Usman shot to the face" and "inadvertent elbow to the face".
Right. It is a story. And it wasn't an inadvertent elbow.

An advertent elbow?
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!

Just think if we hadn't lost all those games to sub .500 teams! It's a crazy stat that we lost the same amount to below .500 teams.

I'm somewhat fine with our sub .500 losses. To me this stat tells us we are going to do well in the playoffs.

Are the Suns a great story or a great team?

Should be, sure, but that'll be essentially the same lineup that scored 154 points last night against the Kings. I didn't watch that game, and I'm guessing that Sacramento's effort was less than stellar, but even so sometimes the opponent just won't miss shots. Can't take anything for granted.

Sacramento is setting records for the worst defense of all time and was also missing key guys. No Fox, no Holmes, no Bagley. They’re also just not trying anymore

Right. The Jazz will certainly compete and they don't suck. The Kings are exactly the opposite of them.

Ya, it’s not an easy win by any means...but it’s a game we absolutely should win if everyone shows up.

In a way I don’t want to win tomorrow and get first place as the energy required to stay there might be too much leading into the playoffs.

Think I’d rather cruise into second place now there’s a bit of space between us and the clippers, giving as much rest as possible to everyone.

The warriors 73-9 season case in point.

Well a win tomorrow helps us coast to 2nd still. Unless Utah keeps resting guys, I think they’d get the 1 seed, even if we win tomorrow. Jazz schedule is easier.

I don't think this team has the mentality or experience to "cruise" as you put it.

Maybe they'd sit guys out for the last game or two, but that's it. For better or worse, they're doing anything required to win every game.

Agree, we aren’t resting people. CP3 would have none of that

Everybody wants to be #1, but I would rather face the Clippers in the second round than the Lakers.

Honestly I’m cool with either. Think we’ll have our work cut out for us in both series

Champions don’t worry about which opponents they want to duck. They beat everybody.

I want HCA throughout, and I don’t care who we have to play as a result.

Yep, sounds good to me. Not sure the Lakers are better than the Clippers anyways. And you could get the 1 seed and have Denver/Dallas sitting 4/5 anyways.
