It's another do or die game for the Suns. If they lose, the season is over. If they win, they come back home for game 7.
I give the Suns a good chance tonight. They fight hardest when their backs are against the wall. They'll have all of their players and the Spurs won't have their mascot (Cheap Shot Bob) for tonight's game. Not that he really does anything for the team anyway, but still.
The key to tonight's game? Just play like they did on Wednesday - only this time don't run out of steam. Since they have a full team, that shouldn't be a problem. I'm worried about the 6 guys that played the bulk of the minutes on Wednesday getting tired but I think with two additional players, that won't happen.
I don't know what else to say about this game except that. We know it's Win or Go Home. They know it's Win or Go Home. They have their eyes on the prize but Mr Stern and Mr Jackson just keep stepping in front of it so the Suns can see it. If the Suns are going to get the prize, they're going to have to shove those guys out of the way and take it. Certainly, no one is just going to give it to them.
If anything, it'll make for more drama on the championship video I'll order as soon as the Suns win it all. GO SUNS!
(There will be an open thread on the game tonight. We're 2-1 with those and should have been 3-0 so I'm going to continue the practice.)
