I still think the Suns win this series, probably in 6, but if Zion is back and healthy and engaged next year, the Pels are a proper WCF contender.


BruiserweightYxB

Seeing how the whole Zion drama is being handled if he's atleast healthy not even engaged is a improvement.


BadxHero

It is going to be next-level crazy if the Pels manage to make it to the Conference Finals. This is the chaos timeline and I am absolutely fucking here for it. Lmao.


WalknOnWater

Hmmm... 15-42 free throw discrepancy. The fix was in.


FootballWithTheFoot

It’s almost as if the pels were top 10 in fta and the suns were bottom 2 during the season


[deleted]

Idk why you’re being downvoted. The NBA clearly wants a longer series


Whit3boy316

My team forgot how to shoot. Kewl.


zrt

You shot 50.6%! That's better than the Pels' 47.1%. If you're talking about three-point shooting, your 25.7% is still better than the Pels' 25%.


spraypaint2311

I KNEW THE SUNS were not it. KNEW IT.


Vinny6420

They are playing without their best player and still are favored to win...


m3ngnificient

Credit to the Pels, they don't even have Zion. If say it's a level field right now


imamonkeyK

Bookers on off rating wasn’t that huge though , nowhere near MVP lvl players. He’s not as crucial to the suns as guys like AD, Kawhi , harden/kyrie etc are to those teams last year. Pelicans missing Zion too. Impact metrics slightly favoured cp3 over Booker last couple years so I don’t think it’s clear he’s their best player. Suns are deep and the pels are a 9 seed even with factoring in being .500 after bad start if the suns lose this series it’ll be an all time choke job. They were loosing g3 with bookers 30 in a half


Easy-Detective-2418

They got Chris Paul. Paul gotta figure out the pels and get booker some time by winning 1 or 2 games on second round


spraypaint2311

Come on man, have some more faith in your team


Vinny6420

Having faith is one thing, but saying the Suns aren't it, because they're playing a tough team without their best player is crazy talk


spraypaint2311

Not championship material is what I meant. Anyway I’m entitled to my opinion right? And you’re entitled to think it’s ridiculous


Vinny6420

I feel you it doesn't matter. We gonna take this to a Game 7, Zion gonna come back and we win and bully every other team from there.


spraypaint2311

There we go, that’s the spirit. And for a good time, send us back a pick when you’re done with all that fun


FootballWithTheFoot

Nah we’re good, thanks tho


spraypaint2311

Cheers 🍻


BuildNuyTheUrbanGuy

Fuck no. I hope the Lakers move back to Minneapolis.


spraypaint2311

Pelinka won’t do shit. Someone had to try


SumOfAllTears

I knew the Lakers were't it in the pre-season 🤣 KNEW IT.


spraypaint2311

Don’t blame ya, I don’t. I get it


Austincow

Atleast they ain’t in Cancun 😂


spraypaint2311

We never left Cancun bruv. Lakers are rubbish and I know it


Blewisiv

Don't forget TM 3 And Jose is a pest but nothing bev


xxxIAmTheSenatexxx

So far from 3pt range this series: Cam Payne 0-12 Jae Crowder 1-17 Mikal Bridges 2-9 Landry Shamet 2-10


Easy-Detective-2418

Tough


Ajjjon2k

Suns are cold from 3


[deleted]

Good night guys its been a pleasure. NO in 6.


Bear_Ohara

Apparently when willie green said “we gotta fight” the team took that literally. Hayes playing tackle football the other day. Cp3 getting floored in front of the ref with no call. 42 to 15 free throw differential. I’m not going to pretend we played well tonight but Jesus. Oh and someone needs to lay Alvarado out with a hard screen ASAP.


QueenTayTay1989

Alright so I just ate this bag of Fritos with hot bean dip. Shit was fire but it was deadass like 900 mg of sodium which is surprisingly less salt than your comment. True story btw


Bear_Ohara

Corny.


KidsInChinaHaveNo

Chippy


QueenTayTay1989

I’m pretty sure the Fritos are actually made of corn


Bear_Ohara

Loving these downvotes Pelicans fans. Boo me all you want, I’ve seen what makes you cheer.


DamnImAwesome

Your team is led by Chris Paul. He punched people in the nuts and played dirty his entire career.


Bear_Ohara

Youre right he’s the bully out there in this series. Not the guy who beat his wife and tackled one of our players for flagrant 2. Go to bed.


FootballWithTheFoot

“Wife” Wow you really know what you’re talking about there don’t ya nephew


Bear_Ohara

You’re right it was just his girlfriend. Guess that’s not as bad?


FootballWithTheFoot

Nah it’s still bad. But complaining about a dirty player while ignoring CP3 is notoriously a dirty player … guess that’s not as bad?


Bear_Ohara

For the sake of argument I just went and watched “CP3” dirty plays montage on YouTube. And not ONE of them was as blatantly physically aggressive as Hayes in the last game and whoever tackled him tonight. Just own up the fact that your team has some real scum bags and the calls went your way tonight. It’s okay beebz We’ll still win playin real Basketball.


FootballWithTheFoot

For the sake of argument, you’re expecting a 6ft player = a 7ft player. Oh and not to mention Jae Crowder’s on your team. Just own up to the fact that while you’re attempting to be all high n mighty, your team has some real scum bags


cricketrules509

A team with CP3 and Crowder complaining about dirty play is hilarious. If he wasn't tiny, CP3 would have had a flagrant 2 and been thrown out of the game. Crowder drew like 3 offensive fouls on flops


RJMacReady23

The Suns play a finesse style… they don’t want to live at the line and it shows


Vinny6420

Hayes tackled Jae's flopping ass and got ejected.... it's not like he got away with it. CP3 flops like a bitch, so don't get mad at refs for swallowing their whistle. Alvarado is in his head.


SwanJumper

xDDD


ChamBruh

Chris Paul LOL


Bear_Ohara

Insightful comment. I’ll take this into consideration…


[deleted]

How can you hate on Alvarado he's a New Orleans legend at this point.


Bear_Ohara

He’s discount pat beverly.


Vinny6420

He was a 2nd round pick so you're right and Paul had 4 whole points this game


DamnImAwesome

Not on Herb!!


Vinny6420

Yeah my bad, my minds all over the place. Undrafted**


jasonfry89

When was the last time a sub 40 win team won a playoff series versus a better than 60 win team?

chiefbeef300kg

It’s ironic this started because your jimmies were rustled over some downvotes, don’t you think? You were soft enough that a dozen downvotes made edit your comment *and* turn it into a weird generational divide thing. Don’t let some downvotes ruin your day man. They’re just internet points.


Donkey_Douglas_

No, calling a younger generation “soft” Bc you’re getting clowned on reddit is boomer talk Also, saying snowflake is a dead give away. Why don’t you lace up those Nike monarchs and prove me wrong

Donkey_Douglas_

My safe space is wherever the fuck I am. Eat my ass old man 👴🏻


FootballWithTheFoot

Are both teams = said team? Bc we’re both missing our best player


RJMacReady23

Well, One guy played this year one guy didn’t Are people this stupid? So one team is without their best player suddenly while the other team is who they are for 2022


FootballWithTheFoot

Yes, they have played different amounts of games … but both teams are missing their best player right? ;)


RJMacReady23

True.. but a better and more accurate context is what I said


FootballWithTheFoot

Just messing with you. Y’all aren’t a 60 win team without Booker, and we’re not the typical sub 40 win team even without Zion. Suns don’t deserve the hate they’re getting, and neither did we with people saying we didn’t even deserve to be here


RJMacReady23

We’re in a dogfight… This series is gonna come down to who wants it more


RodneyPonk

Booker is not an MVP candidate, I don't even know if he's the Suns' best player. 28 points 75 on +1rTS%, solid but unspectacular passer, impact metrics around 15-20 range on/off of +6. [This podcast, around the 39:30 mark](https://open.spotify.com/episode/4kwHbi8T58i4iL6JUJfCLC?si=dc16ef42e0954378) goes into how Booker isn't as good as another guard nowhere in the MVP conversation. He is deserving of his All-NBA spot, but the Suns aren't missing a top 10 player.


DamnImAwesome

He’s definitely their best player. I agree with everything else though


RJMacReady23

You have an awesome handle


DamnImAwesome

I honestly hate it but my accounts ten years old so I don’t wanna abandon it


RJMacReady23

No pun intended.. that was an organic compliment I say you stick this one out


RJMacReady23

The Suns don’t have a Top Ten Player… but to say we aren’t missing our ‘best’ player who is approaching his prime is joke.. 64 wins, best player on the team.. do I think he’s the MVP? No. He’s still gonna get votes


RodneyPonk

He will get votes, but that isn't relevant to the question at hand. "How bad is it that the Suns are missing Booker?" is answered by "he is a top X player in the league" or "he is THIS valuable to the Suns" , not "he got X amount of MVP votes", that's narrative instead of impact.


RJMacReady23

The Suns lost their leading MVP candidate in Booker after game 1 of the playoffs Your semantics are tiring


TheBandedCoot

So you admit though, the Suns ARE going to lose.


RJMacReady23

Where did I admit that? Who knows.. we’re in an old fashioned first round dog fight right now… ala Spurs/Clippers last decade and Heat/Knicks in the late 90’s


jasonfry89

I'm not here to talk shit, I'm a Bucks fan. Was honestly just asking.


RJMacReady23

The first two teams I could think of were the 94’ Nuggets and the 2007 Warriors… They both beat 60 win teams They also both won 42 games Both those one seeds were 100% intact though (Sonics and Mavericks)


jasonfry89

Nice thanks. Hope to see you in the finals.


dmbase

You're right, the Pels are missing Zion.


RJMacReady23

Yeah, you’d be right if Zion played 68 games this year and then just got injured… but he didn’t. He played zero games This is who the Pelicans are, this season.. Suns got blindsided


dmbase

Actually, they got hamstrung.


RJMacReady23

Nice pun +1


Looksfunnytome

Damn people already assuming Pelicans are winning the series already? Lmao 😂


Vinny6420

No one is, the Suns are still the favorites, we're just happy to play competitive against the best team in the West


OSCARUZ

At least the team gains experience, they also get into the habit of winning, which is very important for playoff games, after all, we can see how the experience changes the balance of the game in some series.


hm021299

Literally never


RJMacReady23

Really strange league where you can get 33 assists and lose by 15… Back in the day 20 assists meant a win.. 25 a game and you’re in 80’s Celtics/Lakers territory which means you’re World Champion company..


lucabrassiere

I don’t think I’ve ever seen JV play with this much energy, this Pelicans team knows how to get each other fired up


[deleted]

All of this WITHOUT ZION


DamnImAwesome

I’m gonna be so nervous if he comes back during the playoffs. This team is so good without him I don’t want him to mess up their flow even though he’s a monster


[deleted]

Pels in six fuck Jae crowder


BorisTheBlade04

GG Pelicans you’re really spooky. I think when Zion comes back and you get things together you’ll be really good next year


imhungryforpizza

How am I suppose to sleep now?!


[deleted]

Shit at least you don’t gotta drive 3 hours home after that game. PELS IN SIX FUCK JAE CROWDER


cancercureall

Just wank already mate.


DamnImAwesome

Can’t. Already blew it twice when Alvarado hit the steal from cp3 and when herb blocked the 3


[deleted]

this Michelob ad needs to be longer. more Serena pls.


saintsfan92612

The suns trapping the inbounds down 15 with 3 seconds left was pretty hilarious


felixfoxthot

I honestly think Pelicans won this game because they have one truly insane human on their team. You can’t teach unhinged.


[deleted]

"one" Nah the city of New Orleans drives everyone crazy. Can confirm because I used to live there.


DamnImAwesome

You ain’t wrong. Didn’t realize how insane New Orleans was until I traveled and lived a few other places


[deleted]

Lmao yeah. I got mugged downtown there. Right in the open. For no reason. Still love it there and visit as often as I can but it is truly wild


YoungWazir786

I’m guessing that’s herb jones?


TheBandedCoot

I think he’s talking about Garret Temple.


Vinny6420

Alvarado?


shtty_analogy

Pelicans players are oxygenating their blood at half time and drinking aunt jemima’s breastmilk for that quick recovery


Gristle__McThornbody

Suns look deflated without Booker. I still think they pull it off in 6 or 7


[deleted]

He was PISSED talking cash shit to fans lol


insaneslayer

42 fucking free throws lmaooooo!! the refs are a joke with this snoooooze NBA. 68 in Denver game.


Feelthebern2020

adam silver fucking sucks


BobDoleRulesTheWorld

horrible match up for us. They exploit most of our weakness' but i got shit on for stating so before the series started


lucabrassiere

Can I ask why you think this is a horrible matchup for Suns?


BobDoleRulesTheWorld

what walkingthedog said, rebounding team, willie knows all our plays, missing booker but even before that i knew it would prolly be a 7 game series


WalkingTheD0g1

Elite rebounding team with a guy like Ingram that is already a matchup nightmare who’s truly coming into his own right before our eyes. Plus, Willie Green knows the Suns weaknesses better than anyone and they’re even easier to exploit without Booker. They are legitimately in trouble imo.


MnknowTengsP

This game made me so hype I need to go on a run


wonnage

We all gotta thank Portland and that baffling trade for this awesome series


shtty_analogy

What was the other side of that trade?


Vinny6420

They got a pick that they don't even get because we made the playoffs and it goes to the hornets They got Hart but he misses tf outta NO And NAW but they traded him to the Jazz and he doesn't play anymore.


FootballWithTheFoot

Tbf they still get the 2024 bucks 1st iirc, but they realllly wanted it to be our lottery pick this year instead


Vinny6420

It saves that trade a little but I'm assuming it won't he an early pick.


HORSE_PASTE

Pain.


asdev24

Aye P they told me he was a point god but he only dropped 4 points


Itshardtofindaname4

You talking about that thread in r/Sportsbook POTD huh? I remember that too lmao


Ironthoramericaman

If they don't beat phoenix then they're at least gonna make em absolutely empty the tank to win. Especially with book out


TexasPoonTapp

I love this pelicans team. Herb Jones is the fucking man


ipreferconsole

Give him the max already, idgaf if we dont have to, just fucking give it to him


Tsunami-Papi_

Ngl new Orleans is one of the top 2 food cities I've been to, only behind Chicago.


[deleted]

Lived in Louisiana for 5 years. Not one bad meal yet.


smallyak49

I'd agree with those top 2, but Reverse em personally. Nola then chi town for me


[deleted]

It really depends on what ur looking for. New Orleans food has so much soul. Chicago has more diverse offerings in general and more vegetarian/vegan options. Which I was when I lived there. But then again, the Good Karma Cafe in New Orleans is maybe the best vegan food I've ever had.

Jonas really one 29? I was guessing maybe 33. Feels like ive seen him in the league for a while


indian_hannibal

U ain't seen him in Toronto? He also had a brief stint with Grizzlies too


Singa-tu-mai

Yea I remember but I didn’t think he was still this young


indian_hannibal

Ok


ipreferconsole

drafted at 19 i think


Noah-Buddy-I-Know

its his 10th year

Herb and Alvarado are on the complete opposite spectrums of having expressions and emotions


Seidatneym

number 1 seed is down boy oh boy what an upset. Brandon Ingram the slim reaper


backoff11

i am so glad i was wrong about this pelicans team


IlonggoProgrammer

Will this be an even bigger upset than the We Believe Warriors?


jasonapplebaum2502

It Would if the pelicans made the conference finals


dwynalda3

This would have to be the biggest upset if it happens right? 64 win team vs 36 win team


indian_hannibal

I don't think so but it will be there


elefante88

No. That was a fully healthy mavs team


phoenixlance13

Eastern Conference: gentleman’s sweeps galore Western conference: confused screaming and burning chaos


ktm5141

Except for the nets


Mysterious_Living165

Jonas seems like a great guy


indian_hannibal

He was great in Toronto


Kcreep997

Was thinking the same. Nice to see the guy have such a great game


daVinciDoll

I am living for this underdog killer mentality of the pelicans. As a raptors fan I'm all for this and especially watching JV get his! This is so much fun!
