Playoff Questions: Phoenix in danger without Booker? GSW the most dangerous team? Simmons back for game 4?

On Tuesday night, the New Orleans Pelicans shocked the Phoenix Suns at home to even their first round series 1-1, thanks to 37 points from Brandon Ingram and Devin Booker leaving the game with a hamstring injury.

Chris Haynes and Vincent Goodwill kick off today's podcast wondering if the Phoenix Suns can get by without their All-Star shooter until round 2, or if the Pelicans can shock the basketball world with a first round upset.

Later, the guys discuss the Golden State Warriors taking it to the Denver Nuggets, in a series that doesn't appear as if it will last long for the presumed MVP Nikola Jokić. They also dive into the Minnesota/Memphis series, if the Timberwolves are Karl-Anthony Towns' team or Anthony Edwards' team & if Minnesota deserves more national coverage.

Finally, Chris & Vincent close out the show reacting to the report that Ben Simmons could return as early as Game 4 for the Brooklyn Nets in their series against the Boston Celtics.
