First Nuggets game last night and they choked it away it in overtime.

Jokic picked up right where he left off in the playoffs, though:
29 points, 15 rebounds, 14 assists, 3 blocks

Brutal game for Jamal Murray though:
9 points on 1/9 shooting, fouled out

Wiz lost too. Westbrook got a triple double, but the defense is still missing. Thomas Bryant is soft and shitty for a 5.

At least Lock isn't boring. I mean he still sucks, but at least he attacks downfield.

Haskins is ok. His biggest problem is that Turner and Rivera give shit plays for him. When they let him loose he fires down field with finesse that his WRs aren’t always ready for. Last week was an example of that where one WR just slowed down to turn and look for the ball. With a better WR like Jeudy that would just be a touchdown. Haskins haters are illogical and mostly from the Skins fan base, praying and harping on every mistake, as if Haskins failing isn’t the entire team failing. It’s embarrassing and sad to see.

Just popped in to say fuck the Nugs, and it wasn’t that they choked, but that Hield put ‘em to bed. :)

If they stay healthy I think the Lakers will win, I like the changes they made in the off season. Nets are a possibility too but I think Kyrie and Kd are two massive divas and the team chemistry will suffer as the season drags on.

Yeah, it's hard to see that combo working--especially in year one. And given their personality traits and quirks, I don't even see them coming out of the East.

Good to see another Suns fan here.

3-1 going into tonight's game with the Jazz. Utah tends to have the Suns' number so I'm not too optimistic.

Chris Paul doesn't seem to be having much of an effect on the team yet.

Suns now own NBA best 5-1 record. A bit of sad news as Paul Westphal passed away today. He was a player, then the coach of the Suns in their only 2 appearances in the NBA Finals.

Jokic with 4 triple doubles in 6 games. Missed the triple double by a single rebound each in the other two.

And the Nugs are 2-4. What's the issue over there? Haven't watched their games this season, but as a Lakers fan, I was impressed with them in the playoffs.

Porter been out with COVID protocols, Harris and Barton forgot how to shoot entirely.

Really sad. Glioblastoma. Same thing that took McCain. Truly a Suns legend.

Lakers are back up top for now. Barf.

They'll miss their lack of height in the playoffs.
