He did say IF klay gets back close to what he was pre injury. He didn't say if Klay continues to play the way he is now.
They were a solid contender without Klay and could definitely challenge Phoenix in a seven game series. They just took a step back with Klay back in the lineup. GSW should either pray that he plays better, or just bench him entirely. Players don't recover from injuries all the time. They should not feel obligated to play Klay Thompson based on what he's done for the franchise.

Yep. exactly. Dude you quoted was talking about Klay playing better.

no, he was saying that GSW would only challenge Phoenix if Klay reaches 90% and they were a regular season team otherwise. I'd say GSW is a contender without Klay and would challenge Phoenix no matter what. Just bench Klay if he doesn't get back in shape.

Huge injury news for the Suns: Jae Crowder might have just broken his wrist on a fall. Cam Payne also injured his wrist tonight.

Suns depth if Crowder is out, just a took a huge hit. They may look to make a trade, which could hurt their chemistry.

Ish Wainright's time to shine.

Speaking of the Suns, Bismack Biyombo had 21 pt, 13 rebounds, 5 assists. How do the Suns keep turning these journeyman role-players into better-than-could-ever-be-imagined versions of themselves? I know Chris Paul is great, but still mighty impressive.

Biyombo and McGee were excellent vets, but had down years last year - I don't think McGee barely got any PT with Denver, which is crazy. Biyombo's father passed away and he took time off from basketball, but apparently stayed in shape. James Jones got both at the vet minimum.

The Suns weakness last year was big man depth, and James Jones basically fixed that and made it a non-issue. What they do at the trade deadline will be very interesting because of their injury situation now.

Lue's the anti-Quin. He benched three of his staters Reggie, Zubac and Batum tonight after a nightmare first half and rode his bench to rally from 35-point down to beat Washington.

If it's Lue coaching this Jazz team, Jingles, Clarkson and Royce would've gotten multiple DNP-CD by now.

It's truly amazing what the Clippers have accomplished. Isn't this at least 3-4 20+ point comebacks in this season alone? This is way off the normal-results scale.

Lue is a coach who actually holds his players accountable. He's not afraid of making adjustment and flipping the rotation chart completely during games. He takes out guys who are struggling and brings in ones with the hot hand. Of course it's going to tip the scale in your favor.
It also gets his players motivated to play hard to earn his coach's trust. Why should a guy like Royce play hard if he's just gonna get 35min a night from his coach regardless?
