    Bradley Beal has made no secret of the Phoenix Suns’ defensive strategy against Anthony Edwards. Twice after games this season, Beal has offered a succinct summation of the approach. “Foul his ass,” Beal said after their most recent win over Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves. “Foul him.” – via The Athletic

    Jorge Sierra: Mike Conley: “I don’t think there’s anybody on either team that wants it more than me. I told the guys that, selfishly, do it for me, man. Help me out. Meet me at my level right now because I don’t got long. Y’all got forever.”

    Suns in 7

    Was going to say 6 ,,, but their shooting could be off a couple of games.

    Suns in 6. Bad matchup for the wolves. Their strong interior D won't matter as much against the Suns.

    The Suns swept them in the regular season. They forced Conley to score, which he doesn't want to do. They forced Ant to pass, which he doesn't want to do.

    Conley took 21 shots in 3 games. Ant took 42 shots and had 11 assists while averaging 5 a game during the year. Lost in november at phoenix with a different roster. Lost the next without towns at phoenix and lost again at home where they are better and have homecourt advantage. Wouldnt take regular season much into account.
