Game Day (Early Start!): Suns (50-21) @ Spurs (33-38), Sun 5/16/21

Post by Superbone »

Time: 11:00 am AZ (11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET)
Place: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
TV: BSAZ/NBALP

Well, here we are. Our final regular season game in San Antonio, second of a back to back. We still have a small shot at the #1 seed with a win and an unlikely Jazz loss to a self-imposed, depleted Kings team later in the day. If we remain #2, we will also know which two teams will be playing a single play in game to be our round 1 matchup.

Go Suns!!!

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!

Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

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

Payne/Carter/Bridges/Crowder/Saric with Moore/Galloway/Craig/Stix/Frank off the bench today.

I might start stix...give him 30 minutes.

Should throw him out there, let him take 2 3s...if he makes them both he gets 50/40/90

Yeah, if that's all it would take, give him the chance. I wonder if either the team or Paul even know how close he is.

It's a miracle that Pop and his staff got this Spurs team to a playoff /play-in spot. This roster of theirs is depressing.

Stix with a good looking corner 3, then rushed a turnaround in the post. Wish we got to see him protecting the rim more but he's forced to guard the 3 as a PF.

Carter, Payne, Mikal all looking good. Some ugly offense tho with not a ton of spacing or flow with the bench guys, which is to be expected.

I'm enjoying seeing our bench guys get so much run. I especially like our deep bench guards, Galloway and Moore. Galloway is such a good shooter and scorer.

Stix with 5 points and 4 boards in the 1st quarter. Not too shabby.

Agreed
Solid quarter but Frank did annoy me a couple times by not swinging the ball, finishing soft it another instance

No defense at the rim with Kaminsky and Sarić in there.

Am I crazy to want Cam Payne to sit even though he's helping us a lot on the court? I just don't want any chance of injury.

He's 1-5 and hard to watch out there.
