Game Day Playoff Edition: Lakers (2-2) @ Suns (2-2), Tuesday 6/1/21

Post by Wally_West »

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: TNT


Tied series! Possibly no Anthony Davis with Chris Paul looking healthier and playing in front of the packed home crowd. Suns need to take advantage of this great opportunity. Can’t underestimate a team with Lebron James on it, Suns must come out focused and ready.

Go Suns!!!

So cute.

Put the other finger up instead and she can be in the f*** LA thread too.

Last game was the most important of the series and now this one is. We need to take advantage of our home crowd and go up 3-2 in this series. This is now a best out of three series. GO SUNS!!! Beat LA! No mercy.

Yeah, you can't go back to L.A. in a close out game for the Lakers. You played all year to have home court. You need to take advantage of it.

If anybody here thinks it's going to be easy tonight, it won't be. Reminder, LeBron has NEVER lost a first round series up to this point. This is going to be a monumental task. But you know what? It's going to happen sometime. Why not this series? Again, LET'S DO THIS!!!

He’s also never played a first round series as a lower seed. This is uncharted territory.

I'm happy to chart it for him. :)

If I'm one of coaches and Markieff is starting, I tell my guys not to engage with him because you know he's gonna try some dirty shit to get us to react.

Without AD, Suns can ensure that Mikal or Crowder is on him all the time, even after switches and the P&R. You can also run a box 4 + 1 and other defensive stunts to make sure LeBron is always both double teamed, and one of them is a top defender.

Without AD, and possibly KCP, it's a good gamble to dare the rest of the Lakers beside LeBron to beat you.

Good. That doesn’t worry me at all. (Knocks on wood.)
