The Phoenix Suns are rolling right now, completing their sweep in their second-round series against the Denver Nuggets, winning Game 4 by a score of 125-118.
Phoenix is showing that their first-round win over the defending NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers was no fluke. This was the team’s seventh straight Playoff victory and the Suns have now advanced to the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2010. They also became the first team to sweep an NBA MVP (Jokic) out of the Playoffs since 1989.
The Suns are claiming that it is their time and their year. The results are proving that to be true thus far.
Chris Paul led the way for the Phoenix Suns. He scored 37 points on 14-of-19 shooting from the field. He also grabbed three rebounds and dished out seven assists. CP3 seized the moment for sure and led his team to a second-round sweep of the Nuggets.
"Basketball aside, he means so much to me and my family. To be on this journey with him and to see it paying off is nice."— Phoenix Suns (@Suns) June 14, 2021
