I mean, that pretty much sums it up, right? That Game Flow chart can’t even contain the Suns. If the Game Flow chart can’t contain the Suns, then what would make the Timberwolves think they had a chance?
Seriously, there’s only one thing to say about these last two Suns games:
The Suns are playing the games they ought to play against teams that aren’t very good. Too many times this season, the Suns have had leads and then just fallen apart against teams that, quite frankly, aren’t even in their league this year. The Suns are good. These teams aren’t. Sorry, New Orleans. Sorry, Minnesota. You suck.
And to the Suns: this is what’s expected when you play garbage teams. When you play garbage teams, you ought to beat them by 40 and break the Game Flow Chart. You don’t play those crap games where you let a bad team hang around and hang around and hang around and then beat you in the last few minutes. You step on their neck and you don’t let up. That’s what happened tonight. The Suns went into the half with SEVENTY-NINE POINTS. That’s ridiculous. But so often, you see teams that score 79 in the first half score 20 in the third and 10 in the fourth and get a 109-95 win. That’s fine. The Suns scored 38 in the fourth quarter alone. That’s some neck-steppin’ right there, and that’s what I expect from these teams.
In fact, I’d like the Suns to adopt that as their slogan for the rest of this season:
PHX: Steppin’ On Necks.
