Game Day Playoff Edition — Round 2, Game 3 — Phoenix Suns @ Denver Nuggets, Friday 6/11/2021

Post by AmareIsGod »

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (7:00 pm PT/10:00 pm ET)
Place: Pepsi Center, Denver, CO
TV: TNT

Denver is going to come out aggressive and respond to their coach challenging them. Pepsi Center will be rocking. Lets quiet them early and keep them quiet. I expect this to be a tough game.

GO SUNS!!!

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Never done one of these. I figured I'd do it for the game I expect Denver to come out tough for.

This will be a close one I think
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.

The good thing is we don't need another blowout win. Just beat them in a close game and the series is essentially over. Basically, just do what Brooklyn almost pulled off tonight.

Had to do it eventually! Let's hope I can keep a good thing going.

Polly FTW. I am getting older than dirt! 38 in November this year. When I think of old timers, I think of Swing and MEE and how much they'd be loving this team right now.

Oh no. I’m not sure why I totally forgot about this. I even replied in that thread. Sigh.

Sigh -- they'd be enjoying this immensely. Miss them both.

Now we know who to blame.

I'm expecting everything that can go wrong will go wrong for the Suns in this game. I'll try to remain calm and rational if they lose, but no promises.

You and me both..on both counts. This will be by far the toughest game of the series so far

Same. Like I wouldn't be surprised to see a combined 3-19 from 3 for Mikal/Jae/Cam came today and the Nuggets hit everything and jump out to a 20 point lead in the first half.

Oh, and have they announced which game Scott Foster is calling next? He was in Utah last night. Denver is a quick plane ride.

There's also the "playing at altitude" factor. The Nugs have a nice home-court advantage given that they're used to the thin air up there. This will be a tough game to come into their house and win, given that they know a loss tonight would essentially mean they've lost the series.
