Backs Against the Wall for Suns

After making the blockbuster move for Kevin Durant, the expectation and feel around the franchise is win or bust. As in win a championship within the next 18 months.

I know it sounds crazy now, well while all of the Phoenicians and fans were full of hype around the trade. I had a strong feeling the end of this season would be disappointed.

Well no time for gloom and doom, tonight is a chance to even the series and force a game 7 back in Denver.

Wrong Attitude for Suns

Through out the regular season it seemed clear that after 2-3 seasons on top of the Western Conference, the Suns about had it.

This season their approach was to not worry about the regular season and win when the playoffs start. Even before the trade for KD the Suns had zero urgency to get things rolling until after the trade deadline.

Now win or lose tonight, I want to ask this question to Suns faithful, was the trade for Kevin Durant worth it?

I believe Bridges and Johnson could of put together 15-20 points each adding for Durant’s 30, and then played better defense.

With everything that has happened with the Suns franchise, especially the last 4 seasons, is this the biggest game in franchise history? Win or go home, tonight we see what this group is built of.
