The team will leave for San Antonio tomorrow, Friday, knowing that it is vitally important to regain home court advantage.

We have played hard all year for the second-best record in the league and now with Dallas’ early departure we hold home court throughout the playoffs. We now have to make the most of it.
Having dropped Game 1 at home it was great to see the way the guys bounced back and played with their backs against the wall in Game 2.
The team was able to make several adjustments between the games and so far it looks to have worked. I have a feeling that this series will be like a chess match with each team making adjustments as the series goes forth.
Both teams have contrasting styles and I believe that a big key to victory will be which team is able to impose its will on the other and force them to play the other’s style. For the Suns it will be to force the Spurs into a fast-paced game.
This is an amazing time of the year; I cannot imagine being home right
now only watching the playoffs on ABC. The atmosphere not only in the
locker room, but out on the court, is amazing with all the guys knowing
that this is a chance that may never come around for us again. And for
the fans, that by the looks and especially the sounds of things, want a championship brought to Phoenix in 202007.
Look forward to returning to Phoenix for Game 5 in front of our fans
and defending home court. See and hear you guys then.
