Your Phoenix Suns did everything they could possibly do. A flawless 8-0 record where they looked, without exception, like the best team in the NBA.
Wasn’t enough though, as the Suns will miss out on the league’s postseason courtesy of a Portland Trail Blazers one-point win over the Brooklyn on Thursday night.
But NBA Twitter knows what they saw.
Not the outcome our city was hoping for tonight, but it’s been truly special watching this @Suns team go to work over these last eight games...something special brewing here in the Valley— Larry Fitzgerald (@LarryFitzgerald) August 14, 2020
Hopefully we can bring some of that same magic to the gridiron #GoSuns #GoCards pic.twitter.com/gzXpceKgOA

Only a Portland loss can get them to the Western Conference play-in round ... but the Phoenix Suns went 8-0 here and will start next season with the privilege of telling people how they haven't lost a basketball game since March 10, 2020— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) August 13, 2020

The NBA has 2 choices:— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) August 14, 2020
—Let the Suns play Orlando for the East 8-seed, because they went 8-0 in-bubble, have a better record than the Magic, & geography doesn’t matter in a bubble
—send a fun team home so we adhere to rules that were made up 2 months agohttps://t.co/XQ8PKBThi5
Suns fans,— 8-0 (@Suns) August 14, 2020
Our team will be collecting posters from 9-1130AM tomorrow morning at the North East corner of Jackson and 3rd.
To be COVID cautious, we will be presenting the posters to the team as they arrive back to Phoenix.
It will be documented so we can share with you
I refuse to acknowledge the results of the NBA Playoffs if the Phoenix Suns go 8-0 in the bubble and don’t even get into a play-in game— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) August 13, 2020
What Phoenix fans had the pleasure of witnessing in Orlando is an extraordinarily pivotal moment in Suns history. Your Suns have taken gradual steps towards becoming a competitive club since the arrival of Monty Williams. It took the strangest of circumstances, a bubble of basketball thanks to a global pandemic for the Suns to go full throttle on their reboot.
We’re winners again and that will not soon change. The future is bright. Go Suns.
