PHX wins series 4-2
With a chance at the NBA Finals on the line, Chris Paul led the Suns to a blowout Game 6 win over the Clippers. Paul dropped 41 points on 16-for-24 shooting and chipped in eight assists and three steals in arguably one of his greatest performances of all time. This will be Paul’s first-ever trip to the NBA Finals in his 16-year career. Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton both had strong outings as well. Booker scored 22 points and Ayton had 16 to go along with 17 rebounds.
The Clippers struggled to keep pace with the Suns all night, with the deficit eventually getting to 20 points by the time the fourth quarter came. Marcus Morris Sr. led the way for the Clippers, dropping 26 points and nine rebounds. Paul George had a mixed evening, scoring 21 points but doing so on 6-for-15 shooting from the field. One of the most notable events of the evening came from Patrick Beverley, who was ejected from the game in the fourth quarter for shoving Chris Paul.
The Suns will have to wait until the end of the Eastern Conference Finals matchup to determine whether they’ll face the Atlanta Hawks or the Milwaukee Bucks.
