So game one of the Western Conference semi finals went to the Phoenix Suns last night. The suns had trailed for most of the game, not just that but Suns Guard Chris Paul who has been dealing with a sore right shoulder looked like he had injured it again. His shot were a little off.
But he came back in the second of the game and was dropping shots like only Chris Paul can.
It was a flurry of points by not just Chris who finished the game with 21 points, but Suns star Devin Booker also contributed to the offense as he dropped 21 points of his own.
70-60 was the score at halftime and you would think that Denver was on its way to winning the game, but like I said the sun’s offence was just too much for Denver to handle,
I think what did for phoenix in terms of winning the game was the fact that they were rebounding the ball well, that is what led that I think to a 122-105 victory.
Now the question is how will Denver come out in game 2, not that they were necessarily flat, but they didn’t have the same energy and drive to win the game.
So I guess what I am saying is there needs to be more from not just Nikola Jokic or Michael Porter Jr. but it has to be a totally team effort, otherwise the Nuggets could see themselves going down 0-2 heading back to Denver.
