Suns supporters will be concerned about the outcome, particularly the performance, since many will see it as a repetition of Phoenix’s disastrous Game 7 performance last year.
The Dallas Mavericks blew out the Suns 123-90 in a critical playoff game in 2022. In addition, the Suns have yet to deliver in a win-or-go-home game since.
Devin Booker battled with his shot and finished with only 12 points in 36 minutes on the field. Kevin Durant was far from his best on a poor night for the Suns.
