Can the Suns continue riding the momentum of beating down the overrated Lakeshow? or will the Nuggets keep on defying expectations despite missing their starting backcourt?

    Jokic vs Ayton would be really fun to watch. 


    Who would guard Booker though? :lol:

    Murray... Barton... Dozier... all out!

    but the Nuggets were able to survive the Blazers despite Dame, though I think CP3 will have his hands full with Facu :lol:

    feel like Joker will take Ayton to school

    oh I forgot Aaron Judge este Aaron Gordon can take a turn on guarding Kendall

    also, Jae Crowder will have his hands full with MPJ or as Barkley would say, Michael Junior Porter

    Phoenix is really a bad match-up for the Nuggets. Hirap maka-sabay ang Nuggets lalo na walang Murray.

    I think Jokic is MVP and carrying the team without his sidekick/2nd best player Murray and another starter in Barton. But history shows it hard to make Finals without two 20+ ppg consistent stars. But if Jokic pulls the upset once Barton and Dozier returns, that will be legendary.

    Mukhang Suns na ito, kung kung si MVP lang aasahan ng Nuggets. 😥😥

    Let's see how the Suns fare in the Mile High City. The Playoffs are always all about winning on the road.

    3-0 now

    MVP Jokic with 32/20/10 but that's not enough against the Suns who have been the healthiest team all season. Sayang talaga ACL ni Jamal, Nuggets could have had a really good chance to go all the way this year

    Actually achievement nang nakaabot sila sa 2nd round. Murray was indeed a big loss. Sa playoffs, you really need a consistent scoring guard who can score on broken plays. Nuggets just don't have that kind of guy now.

    yeah, more in indictment sa shortcoming ng Blazers yung 1st round, they can't even put away an injured team.

    and let's face it, no one in my memory has ever made a title run missing one of their top two players, no chance

    In recent memory, wala pa Cap. There have always been two guys. But Suns are also playing impeccable since Game 5 against the Lakers. I like the prospect of Utah vs. Phoenix sa WCF. Sarap isampal sa mga so-called pundits na hindi contenders tong dalawang teams.

    Jokic ejected in the 3rd quarter, Suns will definitely sweep and advance to the WCF. The healthiest team gets more rest

    Chris Paul is now taking over the team. More than 2 mins remaining for Denver to bow out.

    36 yr old CP3 with a vintage close out performance, and all throughout the series just point god excellence, like 40+ assists and like 4 turnovers only?

    this is what playmaking and making the team actually better looks like, not a leplaymaker system that's ugly to watch and all for lestats and lenarrative
  • bigboy0101bigboy0101 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    CP3 effect is for real
  • westhavenwesthaven Jedi apprentice PEx Expert 🎖️
    That call on Jokic should have only been flagrant 1. Masyado namang soft tong nga zebras. Umarte lang si Payne eh. That was a playoff foul!

    A healthy CP3 will always be a difference maker for any team. The question however is can he finally sustain this to get the job done. The Suns look like the Rockets a few years back - they were ready to take down the Warriors until Paul got injured in Game 5 of the WCF and lost the final 2 games of the series. Hopefully he doesn't get hurt again when it matters most.
