I'd actually rather have AD play at well below 100% than him not playing at all.
Hopefully we'll get that wish in game 6.

Would you be willing to trade a Suns win for Morris to break his nose after getting punched in the face?

I would choose the win. But I would think about it.
That was satisfying enough seeing him be a non-factor in a huge loss.

I think the most interesting storyline is figuring out what extent LeBron James can put a team on his back right now. he’s had several amazing game 5s in his career, and this is the perfect situation for him to take over. I expect to see Peak LeBron (at least whatever his current version is of Peak LeBron) tonight.
There's your answer. But we can't mess around. FINISH THEM!

This is our opportunity. I really think whichever team wins this game takes the series. AD is out. Lebron is old and hopefully can't put a team on his back any more. This is the best chance we're ever going to have of beating these guys. Let's see what they're made of!
I'm not going to say the king is dead yet but come on, baby, let's end his reign on Thursday. Save him a trip to the Valley.

It’s not gonna be an easy game. I just hope the fellas smell blood and raise up their intensity. And history would say the refs will be against us too.
Wrong. Right. Wrong. :D

I am playing a gig at a sports bar with a gazillion TV’s and will try to avoid seeing a score all night. I managed to pull it off last Tuesday but, boy is it tough.
The cheering (or lack thereof) should give it away.
Did you make it???

I still can't believe we held the Lakers' starting backcourt (Shroder and Caldwell-Pope) to 0 total points.

Glad to see book off to a good start.
He was the star we needed tonight. 30 points in 3 quarters. Great to see him off the schneid.

Suns need to not let up. Don’t be the regular season Suns that go up big and let them back in. Go up big then go up bigger. Plain and simple. Win this fucking game.
Did they ever.

I am loving this game so far.
That first half was some of the most fun I've had as a Suns fan in a long time! The 3rd quarter Paul shoulder aggravation put a damper on it.

Paul looks OK to me. Maybe a little sore, but not enough to miss game 6.
God, I hope so. I heard him say that he heard the same sound as the first time he got hit during the postgame press conference.

(Blazers/Nuggets game 5 is absolutely bonkers.)
I hope you’re right but you have been calling wrong all series. *cough* lakers in 5 *cough* ;)
That was a reverse jinx. 8-)

How does it relate to Blazers/Nuggets?

Lmao. My bad, I was referring to your Paul post. Dame is a baaaad man. Sucks they couldn’t pull it out.
I don't know. Who would you rather play next? Denver or Portland? I'm thinking Denver due to the Lillard factor. (I may be getting ahead of myself just a bit.)

Lots of guys who haven't played suddenly finding themselves in a playoff game. Could explain the poor shooting.

I don't think LeBron comes back in this game. Vogel should play Kuzma, Harrell, and THT the whole rest of the game. See if one of them can get something going to carry over for the next game.
What are you doing? Don't give them any ideas. Sheesh!

Lebron couldn’t even be bothered to stay on the bench until the end of the game.
He probably took a private plane back to LA before the rest of the team made it to the locker room.

Love the drubbing. Even better that it was the Lakers. Feels so much better.
I just wish Paul would have played one minute less.

Also was that Chris Haynes question considered journalism? Fuck that guy. What a clown shoe. Booker should have took his headset off and walked away
I liked how Book answered it. Very mature and stuck to his guns.
