I mean, we all know this game and the Warriors last night...pretty much the same deal. Dubs more shitty in degree but not in kind.

These opponents are GOOD

Chris Paul seems to have slowed down a lot. he still has that deadly jumper in the paint, but we may be seeing the end of his career.
It's what happens with age. The body is unable to bring it every night.

They won't. That's what happens when teams are pretty close. Suns are better but not by a whole lot. Same with Warriors Grizzlies. Celtics and Bucks are basically even (without Middleton).

In this series the home team has won every game. I guess the series hasn't started yet LOL

Suns are the better team. I expect them to win game 7 at home.

But if there is 1 player in the playoffs who just might go supernova and elevate his team to a road win in game 7…::

It is Luka

Will be fun!

Yep. Like they said last night...you don't want to go into a game 7 with the best player in the series on the other team.

I utterly hate the fact that Skip Bayless got his start here in the DFW area...

He became famous for floating the story that Troy Aikman was gay. When your career launches based on bull shit like that, your entire career is going to be worthless hot takes designed to get a rise out of people.

That was the pinnacle locally... although he took great pleasure in ripping Landry and also Jimmy until Jimmy started winning at which point he did what he does and shifted gears. But he gave zero shits about the Mavs even during the 80's era of damn good teams.

Loved Mark Aguirre when I was a kid.

Not sure if I should be worried or what. Suns have lost a game 7 at home before, but this was back in the 90's.

I think the Suns win, but they are definitely playing with fire. All of the pressure is on them, the best player in the series plays for the Mavs and CP3 looked tired in that last game. If the game is close going into the 4th quarter, the Suns could be in real trouble.

The same seems to be happening to Hardin and Westbrook but at least Paul has leadership qualities they can rely on

Paul was the better player all along, and continues to be. His game isn't as reliant on athleticism (Westbrook) and is a true point (unlike Harden). Paul doesn't monopolize the ball like Harden and slow down the whole team. Paul is also a plus defender, unlike those other two.

Paul hasn't been great in closing out series in a positive manner in the past either. Booker will need to show up big IMO.

Maybe it's the lower testosterone levels compared to guys who are in their 20's. However, don't all these high level players have access to drugs that get your body producing hormones like you were 20? LOL.

Both are great teams, now this series seems a lot more lopsided. Mavs are starting a bunch of 2nd round picks around Luka. Gotta give a lot of praise to JKidd, he is a pretty damn good coach
Luka is as good as there is in the game. Put him on nearly any other playoff team and he is in the Finals. This team has ass comparatively
