But especially CP3. He’s 35 yrs old and I feel like it’s not worth playing him on dead legs tomorrow and risking injury.


Book can go full, ayton no more than 30 and CP3 no more than 25. I agree but I don't think full rest is needed, just legit minute restrictions.

I get the feeling Ayton started to enjoy going up against Gobert. I remember earlier in the season, he was pushing up on Gobert and trying to establish physical dominance.

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

What happened with the 3 postponed games against Indy, Warriors and Hawks? Have they been rescheduled?

Booker never looks tired... Its amazing how he can always give 110% Some times he tries to hard but thats not that bad of a flaw.

I know this isnt what the picture is about but Booker is so athletic and strong.

Now im no body builder or anything close to it but that looks like a **** load of muscles.

Even his arm-pit looks like it has a muscle.

Yes, that's why they had the break and the second half not scheduled, so they could build in the games missed. They are in the schedule. We already played the Pacers the 2nd time. Our Atlanta game is the 2nd night of a b2b. I imagine that's why we have 6 b2bs in the second half of the schedule.

Suns beat Jazz then Denver back-to-back early in the season, so it's not impossible, but it will be tough.

Thanks

I wasn't sure whether it's in the schedule or not already. Appears they are.

That was some amazing work on the boards tonight. Ayton especially, but the whole team was swarming and boxing out. Can’t remember ever seeing a Suns team dominate the glass like that. Very impressive, especially against such a good rebounding team like Utah


That was badass effort! I hope we can maintain this for the playoffs.
Badass win too, with our big 3 delivering - (although Book had his mistakes)

Hey, that smartass John Hollinger says (in his parallel reality obviously) he should go to the contender, like Mavs or Heat. :roll:

What a nice feeling when you woke up at 4am in the morning to watch your fave basketball team win and now whole day is nice and rosy.

Thank you, Suns.
