BIG game! Winner takes top spot in the entire NBA. Who coulda thunk before the season started that we would have a chance to do that with ten games remaining even if only for one game? Let's go!

Does somebody have the injury report? Isn't Utah sitting several important players such as Mitchell?

Ya, no Mitchell or Conley. O’Neale is questionable.

Saric is probable, Crowder questionable still.

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

Well since Saric > MItchell, we'll be at the disadvantage tonight from the injury perspective.

Without Mitchell and Conley, they theoretically shouldn't be able to match our scoring. Hopefully we show up and give 100% effort and don't play down to their level. This game is such a huge opportunity, we better not squander it.

I'm also interested to see how Ayton does against Gobert. He has mostly struggled against him in our matchups against the Jazz. Gobert's height and length really seem to bother Ayton. Let's see how this one goes.

Feeling good about this one. I think we keep rolling with the Jazz injuries. Really hoping for some more offense from Ayton other than an occasional tip in. He's got more tools than just that.

If we win this game and claim, even temporarily, the best record in the NBA, that would be an absolutely stunning accomplishment for a team that missed the playoffs last season.

The Suns have more wins this season than the 2017-18 and 2018-19 teams combined -- 44 wins currently vs. 40 wins.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

That was perfect, cap! :D Now let's see if we can pull it off without being pelted with arrows and being chased by a giant boulder.

In retrospect, it would have been more perfect if I’d PM’ed it to Indy and let him post it. Missed opportunity.
