Can the Phoenix Suns still come back from being down 0-2 against the number one seed Denver Nuggets?
No sun shone in the Mile High City as Denver scored 2-0 against Phoenix in the Western Conference semifinals.
Nikola Jokic dropped 39 points, 16 rebounds, five assists, and two steals in the Nuggets’ 97-87 Game 2 win.
The Nuggets-Suns regular season series finished in a tie, with Denver winning the first two before the Suns got their revenge in their final two meetings. However, the postseason is different.
And while Phoenix added Kevin Durant, the No. 1 team still has answers.
Aaron Gordon supported Jokic on offense with 16, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 14.
On the other hand, Devin Booker had a great game with 35 points and Durant with 24, but they lost Chris Paul during the game to groin tightness.
His status for Game 3 remained unavailable as of the writing.
