So is this the best suns team…ever?
I'd probably still go with the pre-JJ face fracture team, but it's close.

I’m glad Suns up 10 at half but you just know Nuggets 3s are gonna starting falling at some point. Hope the Suns are prepared. Our offense needs too to be precise in the 2nd half.
I get that perspective, but I’m not hugely bothered by this. I know that we shot something like 6/15 for 40% from 3, but we actually I think if we look at our expected fg% from three we probably shot worse than we could have given how open most of those threes were as well as several bunnies missed at the rim and the two strange jumpers by CP3. Love the defensive effort so far. Awesome steal and dunk by Booker.
Ya it’s the 2/6 from Ayton and Paul, Cam 0/3 on 2s. Bridges 0/3 on wide open corner 3s. Craig is 0/3 too
So CP3, Ayton, and Craig went 12/13 in the 2nd half
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 know he didn’t leave on the best terms but that Barkley team was very deep. Wonder what Oliver Miller would be like in today’s game if he could keep his playing weight at 260.

I was little during the 93 season, so I can’t really compare that one…but this one is right there with the best if the seven seconds or less era

Mike Malone absolutely brutal on team in his press conference.

I don't remember if I saw Dario dunk all season, and he's got 1 in each game in this series...

Suns just beat them into quitting but TNT saying the Nugs quit on their own. Not buying it

1992-93 - Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson, Dan Majerle, Richard Dumas, Mark West, Oliver Miller, Cedric Ceballos, Frank Johnson, Danny Ainge, Tom Chambers.

Best record in the league, best record in Suns' history, almost took Jordan and the Bulls to the 7th Game of the Finals.

Raise your hand if you thought you would ever hear the Suns have the best defense in the playoffs. That’s crazy.

If we're not careful our defense might win us a championship.

Ayton is back. Denver is about target him. Hope he’s ready.
They never did. They are so soft it's shocking. Their coach is 100% right about everything he's said about them. But I don't know if it even helps for him to say it. After the last game, he called them soft and Jokic disagreed with his coach and said they didn't play soft. I knew they were in trouble if Jokic wouldn't even agree with his coach on it.

This is the second game of the playoffs that we've won with nobody on our team scoring more than 18 points.

I hope the Suns are still keyed in on Monte Morris. He's not going to shoot 1-10 again, and the Nuggets had a lot of good looks in the first half of game one.
You are right. He was only 1 of 7 tonight.
