Wow. I can't get over that game last night. Just wow. Congrats Indy. What an environment!

I do feel for the Nuggets because the Murray injury was devastating to them and they look like they've hit the wall now.
Yeah, the wall known as the 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!

Yes, but, would the suns be the suns without devin booker? This isn't the denver team that got them here.

Either way, thank bob we are doing what we need to do. No mercy.

What a run this team is on! OK, we can't get caught up in Denver's drama. That's their problem. We have to go into Denver now and take at least 1 of 2. Of course the preference is win both of them and put them out of their misery. Maybe then the Suns' defense would get a little credit. But let's start with game 3. We win that and it's over. Their confidence totally shot. They win, they have life again.

FINISH THEM!

Of course not. That wasn't my point. This Denver team, as currently constructed, ran into the wall known as the Suns. Is that better? And I don't know what bobster has to do with it.

It’s a grueling race to the finals. Injuries and suspensions are certainly part of it. The Suns have plenty of experience having injuries and suspensions in the playoffs and no one cried for us. Sorry Denver is hurting. Their coach is blaming their players for not trying hard enough, not injuries. Then again that’s his only option at this point. Can’t get blood from a turnip as my grandma used to say.

I do think we have to give Sarver a little bit of credit, but only finally staying out of the way. Up to this point he has been a horrible owner, but if he stays pretty much invisible, I don't have any issues with.

The good news: No NBA team has ever come back to win a 7 game series (or 5 game series, for that matter :P )after going down 3 games to 0. The next game is effectively do or die for Denver

The good news: Only thirteen teams in the history of the NBA have come back from a 3-1 deficit. This makes game 4 of the series also more or less do or die for Denver as well

The bad news: of those thirteen teams that came back from being down 3-1, two of them were the 2020 Denver Nuggets,

Didn’t the Suns came back from 3-1 in the Lakers series 2006?

Yes, they were one of the 13 teams to do it.

And the 1995 Rockets against the Suns were also one of them, as I alluded to earlier lol.

You found me!

I was in row 14, though. And more than once I was questioning the strength/support system for the stands as people were cheering/jumping/screaming around me.

It's a good thing they renovated the place just in time.

Ugh I hated that chant. Hated the wave too. Too early. But damn the arena was a party tonight, so loud. My ears are ringing
We can't do the fucking wave in Denver SAUCY! I hope you weren't sitting down during that!
Lolll. Man. I just hope we can capture one of these two in Denver and finish it off at home
