Phoenix Suns in six
The Phoenix Suns made through without Chris Paul even after had to miss Game 1 and 2 of the NBA Western Conference Finals. Although, it did not have a big impact on the Suns’ team as Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton assisted the Suns to go 2-0 up.
The combination of Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker has been immense for the Suns.
It is true that the Bucks were without Giannis for 2 games in East Finals but Brook Lopez was the standout performer in Game 5.
