Come on Suns. Beat the last remaining undefeated team in the NBA.  104-102 Suns with 2:48 remaining.
Just a bundle of cuteness and fierceness.

Looks like it’s about to happen. Who knew the Suns would be this good?

I had a feeling once they got Rubio and got rid of the players who didn't preform well last season like Josh Jackson, TJ Warren and Chriss.   The front office did a good job surrounding Booker, Ayton, Oubre Jr and Bridges with solid complimentary pieces and having a good pass first point guard helped take off the playmaking responsibilities off of Booker so he can just focus on scoring and defense.   I also say they put some good physical centers behind Ayton and it has worked well for them.

And surprisingly the Warriors don't look like complete trash tonight. They playing like a team, hitting shots. Stepping up against the Blazers.
Interesting watch. We'll see if they can hang on and play a complete game this time.

I guess with D'lo and Draymond out they have to go younger and it might be working for them against the Blazers.   87-83 Warriors at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Lakers come back from 19. Stop doing this to me. This game was infuriating until the end of the third quarter.

Kuzma looked good. We really needed his production especially with Avery Bradley out.

Lakers started slow for everyone but LeBron but the end of the 3rd quarter by Kuzma and then that start of the 4th quarter with the 16-0 run from Kuzma, Cook and Howard was the spark the Lakers needed to win it and plow on the defense.  For a time the Bulls only had 6 points in the 4th quarter.

Nice to finally get another win at home against the 76ers, the 1st in Donovan Mitchell's career, after dropping 2 bad games to the Kings & Clippers.

In other news, the corpse of Dante Exum is slated to rise again on Friday against the Bucks. I'm sure we'll be putting that one down again soon enough.

Thank god for Bogdanovic. We got bailed out tonight in a tough win against the Bucks, who rallied from something like 20 points down at the half to almost winning the game. That Jazz did not deserve to win this game the way they played that second half.

Lowry?
Haywood?

(We all know it's Steph, because the Celtics and Raptors are probably both going to have decent seasons anyway... but what's with all the hand breakages?)

I wonder how Draymond turns a "sore finger" into a season ending injury too.

but at least these boys getting some good playtime so that they look like they know what their doing next time Steph and Klay step back onto the court to play.

It should be noted that since 2015 the Warriors played the equivalent of an extra season's worth of games in the playoffs + 20 or so more games extra. The accumulation of injuries forcing the core 3 out for a full season makes perfect sense because they mostly burned through it in the last 5 playoffs.

The wear-and-tear builds up.

That (healthy) is partly why I don't trust the Lakers. LeBron seems inhuman, but I can't help wondering how long his body can hold out. He's been in the league for a long time and has put in a ton of heavy usage minutes with deep playoff runs year after year.

... Suns are going off tonight ...

Love seeing that point distribution between players.
Suns are easily one of the best stories of the year so far.

Defending champs (minus two key players due to injury) with a solid take down on the Lakers last night!
 ;D

It's nice to see Toronto finally win a game against a good opponent this season. Prior to last night they had lost a tight game to the Celtics, went in unprepared versus the Bucks, and hadn't played anyone else of consequence. In a weird season where they still have lots of talent but pundit expectations are low, every win against so-called  "contenders" is a big deal IMO.

---

Watching the game this afternoon, and using the Lakers feed so I can hear their announcers.

Some teams have really bad poor announcers that seem like they are constantly trying to toe the company line with unrealistically positive comments about the home team and ignorance and/or openly negative attitudes for the competition. I mean, you always expect a little homer-ism from the announcers, but some announcers go way beyond what is reasonable.

Gotta say, listening to the Lakers crew were refreshing. When either team made a good play, there were very positive and would gush - appreciating good basketball when it happens regardless of where it comes from. They seemed knowledgeable about players on both teams. That positive attitude made watching the game more enjoyable!

Do you all have preferred (or less preferred) announcing crew? 
Do you find it even matters?
Am I weird, or showing that stereotypical Canadian insecurity, by actively trying to listen to other announcing crews to compare them to what we hear from our own local teams?

I think the Warriors announcers have been the same way for the past few years.

They would always talk up the competition all the time, and I'm not sure if it was to keep everyone interested in watching, as the Warriors were favorites for every year for years now, but they would do this regardless of how the game was going or who we were playing.

I used to watch lots of Lakers games and typically Stu Lance was the one who pointed out the good for both teams and gush about the Lakers at the same time when they play with lots of energy. 

I have mainly heard the local Phoenix Suns announcers on the radio lately and they tend to root for the Suns a bit.

Speaking of the Suns and Lakers that game is coming up I think tomorrow. Both teams are good and I am a former SoCal resident living in Phoenix so I try to make a point of rooting for both teams when they play against each other just because I like both teams.  Maybe Lakers more just because of the Kobe/Shaq era and I only recently starting watching the Suns this year. Still I like to cheer both teams on.    I guess I am not suppose to do that with the Lakers according to Suns fans but I don't care.

I feel like commentators these days don’t do as much play-by-play as they did in the past. You can’t really put a game on in the background and still follow what’s happening.
