One thing I’ll add...Craig needs to be our backup 5...can’t play Kaminsky again. Especially if AD can’t go.
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.

I agree, I think Craig can guard Gasol well enough.

Anthony Davis had a mild groin strain in January 2015 (when Monty Williams was his coach) and he missed only one game. So we'll see. If it's mild, he may try to come back at some point, but Game 5 may be a stretch (no pun intended).

Davis shot 2-9 from the field, including 0-3 from three, before he exited with the groin injury. So obviously the knee was affecting him quite a bit.

Plus a hyperextended knee. He may have hurt his groin by trying to protect the knee, I don't know though.

That injury increases the Suns odds by quite a bit.

They keep showing the A.D. injury over and over. I think it happened because he tried to kick his leg out unnaturally at Crowder on his way to the hoop.
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!

I didn't breathe easy until that Crowder three to put us back up by 10! Great win, now we've just gotta hold on to our homecourt advantage.
Same here .

I was totally on edge before that. Marc Gasol hitting that baseline 3 late in the game had me nervous as well.
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !

So I give you all the credit for the Suns winning game 4.

As long as you have 2 more babies about to be born this week, the Suns should be good to go. If not, it may be time to start talking about virgin sacrifices.

Does anyone know of a link where I could watch a replay of the game?
Morning sir, games are uploaded in four parts which is good cause it usually loads faster or doesn't lag because they are only like 25mins each

Oh I saw CP3 quotes but didn't actually watch that on court interview. Man his voice was cracking which could have been just winded or was he slightly emotional/relieved that he was able to play more like himself and get the key win ? :shock:

Thanks all! Baby and mama are doing great today. We expect to be discharged from the hospital later today. It will be really fun to introduce baby Polly to her big brother and sister. Can't wait...

What do we think of Bridges's play overall in this series? I think he's playing good defense, but his shooting has been really poor. Yesterday he shot 4-12 and in general he's been off. I don't think he's gotten awful looks, either. Lakers are pretty good at closing out on 3-point shooters, but I remember several of Mikal's shots have been open or mostly-open. He just isn't making them.

Booker is also shooting poorly in this series, but I am more tolerant of that because it's clear that the Lakers are making it their primary goal to stop him. They have Shroder draped all over him, and then they bring in Caruso to bump and shove him all over the court, and they throw double-teams at him constantly. So of course that would affect one's shooting.

Before the game started, nobody on TV was looking to see if the Suns could tie up the series. Instead they all talked about whether the Lakers could go up 3-1.
That goes with the territory of having one of the greatest players to ever play the game, being the defending champions, and being the series favorite.

Sounded like emotion to me.
