Game Day: Warriors (12-42) @ Suns (21-33), Wed 2/12/20

Post by Superbone » Wed Feb 12, 2020 10:35 am

Time: 7:00 pm AZ (6:00 pm PT/9:00 pm ET)
Place: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ
TV: FSAZ, NBALP

The lowly Golden State Warriors come to town for our final game before the all-star break. You've heard of must-win games before? Well, this is a gotta-win game. If we don't win this one at home, I don't know what to tell you. Cheick gets it:
"We've got to get that one before the break, there's no excuses," forward Cheick Diallo said.
Go Suns!!!

I am predicting a loss here. Our guys just seem out of it lately, except for maybe once a week.

I like your reverse jinx style. However, it's that once a week game. Book it!

This is obviously a team we "should" beat, given all their injuries and record this season. But we have a ton of injuries of our own, and our remaining frontcourt is really pathetic. I hope to see Cam Johnson turn in another good performance. I find that watching Cam and his development is one of the most fun things about this season for me (outside of watching Rubio let down his hair).

I predicted a win streak a few games ago and I think we are 1-5 in that stretch.

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

Ayton still doubtful to play.

I thought I heard he was out (resting his ankle through the break)... but I guess he is supposed to play in rising stars game, so who knows.

Our guys better come back healthy after the all-star break. Baynes and Frank especially. This is bullshit already.

I think Kaminsky might be out for most of the season.

So 5.5 weeks ago they said he would be out for 4-6 weeks. Is it now worse than that original diagnosis and timetable?
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

You can joke but he would help us a bunch off the bench.

This team is so weird about transparency when it comes to injuries.

I totally agree. He hasn't been able to play the position and role he was brought in to play this entire season. He was supposed to be the backup PF, and he would play that role very well next to Ayton and Baynes. He's not a lost cause or as terrible as he is thought of by many Suns fans. Just let him get healthy with everyone else, and that role will suit him well.

If his ankle is sore enough that he misses the Warriors game, then maybe he should forgo playing in the Rising Stars games.

Priorities ...

Maybe he should be in the 3-point shootout on Saturday night instead? :P
