The Suns fire Monty Williams after another failure

The Phoenix Suns decided to fire coach Monty Williams this Saturday, after the elimination suffered against the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals, culminating in a humiliation at home (100-125) in the sixth game of the series. The firing of Monty Williams, who led the Suns to the NBA Finals in 2021, when his team surrendered to the Milwaukee Bucks, was advanced by the ‘ESPN’ and ‘The Athletic’ networks.

Williams led the Suns for four years and was voted coach of the year last season. The coach paid for the new failure of the Suns, who were eliminated in the West semifinals despite throwing the house out the window in February to add Kevin Durant to an already very competitive roster.

Devin Booker, Durant, Deandre Ayton and Chris Paul, who missed the last four games of the series with injury, failed to find continuity and were humiliated at home Thursday by the Nuggets, who won by 25 points. The Suns are the franchise with the longest years in the NBA without having been able to win a ring of champions.

“It is definitely frustrating, disappointing and embarrassing to lose. But defeats happen. It’s about how you can get up, keep pushing and find ways to be better, “Durant said in the press conference after that duel. “They came to hit us in the mouth and we couldn’t recover,” acknowledged the Suns star.
