    Love the Suns in the playoffs. I could see Booker and CP3 going to another level and making a real run in the West.

    I lean in the opposite direction.....they seem like the classic team that will be much easier to defeat over a multiple game series when a team is allowed to scheme against their weaknesses....something that is hard to do for a single game during the season. I assume defenses will key on Paul to disrupt their offense.

    If defenses do that Phoenix will be great. Paul's used to getting his against double teams and defenses keyed to stop him.

    Better (by far) to play tight on Bridges and Booker, limit their effectiveness by making them be drivers, and live with Paul scoring 20 - 25.

    I was not referring to focusing on Paul's scoring....but scheming to disrupt his overall comfort level in running the offense.

    Right.

    Teams have been doing that-- or attempting to-- since Paul came into the league.

    I have no feel for the Suns. They’ve obviously had a great season and the few times I’ve caught them I’ve enjoyed watching them play. They clearly have a ton of talent, so they could make a run. But it’s pretty rare for a team that hasn’t been there to step in and make a run. It happens but you usually have to get punched in the mouth a couple times first. Booker and Ayton will be playing the biggest games of their lives and while Paul is great if there is a knock on him it’s his playoff resume.
