From ESPN:
Quote:
Coach Monty Williams suggested Tuesday that Ayton (knee) is on track to be available for the Suns' postseason opener Sunday, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports. "We're doing everything we can to have those guys ready for the playoffs," said Williams.

I expect Vogel will win this chess battle, Game 1 will be interesting though. I think we can count on Vogel testing matchups and lineup combos, before tightening the rotation late. Here's hoping for some pleasant surprises.

GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!

Let's come out strong in the first quarter, take Game 1 and immediately put doubt in the Suns' minds.

LeBron needs to not be LeCoast and instead lead the charge early by pushing the pace and being aggressive.

Winning game 1 is obviously huge, but Vogel and Lebron are big on using the 1st game as a feel out game, so I wouldn't be too down even if this game doesn't go our way.

That could work against them. But I expect Chris Paul to be the exceptional flood general he always is and provide a calming influence.

If Lebron and AD are anywhere near healthy I don’t see how Suns win this series. Ayton isn’t 100 percent either and this is just a horrible match up for them.

What they “should” do and what they have actually been doing are two entirely different things.

The entire season they have tended to go down double digits early, have long scoring droughts, play lackadaisical defense that gives up repeated layups. Then they rely on concentrated bursts to get back into the game.

Worked in the regular season to mixed results. They barely survived doing it against GS.

Now we will see if they can break the bad habits against good teams on a consistent basis. Like you, I would like to think they can be motivated enough to flip the switch in the playoffs.

But they still need to prove it....to themselves as much as to the other playoff teams.

Hope we beat the (bleep) out of the PHX Bums on Sunday. Crush their spirit in game 1, and make them think long and hard about what losing game 2 will do for their chances.

Lakers underdogs at +3 in Game 1.

You can also get them on the MoneyLine at +115.

I like it.

I expect the suns to collapse the paint. I just hope we have some chemistry and don’t take forced shots.

I hope we get the calls we deserve, but we can’t be laying on the ground or complaining to the refs.

I hope AC stays aggressive.

Last and maybe most important. DS needs a good game. The blow by is his go to move, but he needs to have better Vision or make sure he gets a whistle.

According to what I see on the ESPN box score, the Suns are a 2.5 point betting favorite? Seems like easy money to take the Lakers +2.5.

You have to be fully vaccinated or negative COVID test and they check twice at the street level on your way in to the stadium. I got a special email invitation for season ticket wait listers. I’m not sure how it’s working now. I couldn’t get back in to the buying site, maybe higher priority season ticket holders are buying them all.
