Game Day: Suns (46-18) @ Cavs (21-43), Tues 5/4/21

Post by Superbone »

Time: 4:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Cleveland, OH
TV: BSAZ/NBALP

The Suns will continue their quest to keep the top record in the NBA. They'll be going against a Cavs team that's out of the playoffs and dealing with a myriad of injury issues while losing their last six in a row. In other words, watch out Suns. Let's see if we can step on them early and allow the end of our bench to finish out the game. This is the last non-playoff team we'll face for the rest of the regular season.

Go Suns!!!

The Suns have failed to cover as 10+ point favorites in their last four games. The most recent cover was a 134-106 win against Washington as a 13.5 point favorite on April 10th.

They're currently a 12.5 point favorite today. Who's willing to put a little cash on the Cavs?

Suns record with tonight's officials are Kevin Scott (0-0), Scott Twardowski (3-1), and JB DeRosa (1-0).

Just because it's a holiday and I'm in a good mood, the Cavs record with tonight's officials are Kevin Scott (1-3), Scott Twardowski (2-3), and JB DeRosa (3-1).

I guess the strategy is to post up against Sexton on every possession.

Feels like DA and Craig don't have much pop tonight.

Ayton has made an appearance in the third quarter.

I'm tired of watching Mikal and Cam pass up shots 5 feet away from the rim.

They passed back and forth like 3 times too many right there, haha

Then Bridges passes up a layup to get it to Cam there...might have been a tough one, but gotta finish that.

Another no-so-good young team with a lot of main guys out and we can't shake them. Every time we go on a little run they knock down a 3. We're not playing poorly, just not hitting as many 3s as they are so it's close.

Our defense has looked poor to me

We can't stop Sexton for sure. And Osman got off early.

Also Monty should know from last year that Frank and Dario aren't really great together.

This wouldn't be close if they just took the shots near the rim instead of turning it over or passing out for a missed three point shot.

Strange timeout by Bickerstaff. The Suns were having matchup problems with Carter in the game and Okoro running the point guard position.

As frustrating as it can be to watch them play these unnecessarily close games, it's hard to get too nervous when the Suns have two guys who can usually get a good shot on every late possession.
