The Phoenix Suns lost in the NBA Finals, and are now left struggling with the worst pain in their lives.
They came so close to their dream but fell short of it. The Suns guard Devin Booker said hes never felt a hurt like this in his life, something no one ever wants to feel.
The Bucks took home the victory 105-98, with Giannis Antetokounmpo scoring 50 points over the Suns in Game 6 on Tuesday. The Milwaukee team won the best-of-seven championship series by taking four games to two of the Phoenix. The Suns triumphed in the first two games at their home court but dropped the last four.
The Suns coach Monty Williams expressed his disappointment, saying it was hard to get to the finals, and he wanted it so bad. Right now, their NBA failure is difficult to process for the entire team. Williams said that hes never been hurt like this as a head coach, saying it will hurt for a while.
The Suns’ loss is also even more painful for Chris Paul, who was in the NBA Finals for the first time since he started his career in the league. It’s been 16 years, and hes yet to get his first NBA title. Paul said its tough as they had a great group, and it was a hell of a season. Their loss is going to hurt for a while.
The Suns’ guard described their locker room to be just lost. But though they failed, Paul said he intends to channel to pain to work harder in the next season and to have a chance to return to the finals. There’s nothing more and nothing less for Paul right now but to just get back to work.
