The Suns save the first round finishing with a great Booker

One of the most anticipated first round qualifiers of these 2023 Playoffs it has concluded in only five passes. The Suns didn’t get to sweep the Clippers, but it has allowed them to advance to the next screen using few resources and little time. It is not that the Los Angeles team has been a disappointment, it has simply been uphill for them against a clear favorite for the title with their two main players, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, injured.

In this fifth match, those from Phoenix won 136-130 at the Foot Print Center. 47 points from Devin Booker paid off to achieve this milestone. The guard signed 4/7 in three-pointers, 15/20 in two-pointers and 5/6 in free throws in a very complete performance, with 10 assists, 8 rebounds and 2 steals. Kevin Durant (31) was the second in contention and Ayton (21) and Paul (13) also signed good numbers. On the opposite side, Norman Powell (27) took on external responsibility for the two aforementioned casualties and Westbrook, with 3/18 shooting, once again had one of those nights in which his decision-making capacity is not balanced..

Those who expected more battle between the fourth and fifth The West will have been highly disappointed, but it is not the only clash of these 2023 Playoffs that is touched by injuries. Kawhi decided in the only victory for the Clippers and has failed in every other date. Too much weight to distribute among the teammates and another false closing of the Tyronn Lue project, which has confirmed that he will continue as coach despite the new fall of the Los Angeles team.

Denver awaits in the conference semifinals. Phoenix has warmed up the engines well in this earlier phase. The 4-0 after losing the first match marks and warns. In this fifth and final game they put the stamp on it in the third quarter, in which they burst the opponent with good base. 50-24 partial in which half of the points, 25, were scored by Booker, who missed only one of his eleven shots. A Show of triples on arrival, dunks with dedication and an audience in communion with their Suns. Given that, the Clippers did enough to stay alive. With five minutes to go, the Californians hit four consecutive triples that put them within three (128-125). Powell acted as the leader and contributed another five points to reduce the distance another one (132-130). At the peak moment the defense appeared, that was what the brilliant comeback of the Lue team had forced them to do, to decide in favor of the Suns. A steal by Josh Okogie that led to Paul’s counter, assisting, and Durant, finishing off, added a four lead and there, adding another two KD points from the free kick, everything expired; the individual, this match, and the global, this tie. Let’s see the next one.
