Suns Keep Rising


Chris Paul’s 41 Points Leads Suns to 1st NBA Finals Berth in 28 Years

Chris Paul is where he belongs.

After 16 long seasons, years upon years of adversity and untimely injuries, Paul has finally reached the pinnacle of the NBA on Wednesday night.

Behind his 41 points, and 31 points in the second half, the Hall of Fame bound point guard helped lead the Phoenix Suns to their first finals berth in 28 years. This will be Paul’s first opportunity to compete in the Finals and one that he will truly treasure for the remainder of his storied career.

“We still got a lot of work to do, but we’re going to enjoy this,” Paul said following the 130-103 victory. “Sixteen years, surgeries, hard work, losses, bad losses, but we’re going to enjoy tonight.”

The 34-year old’s outstanding play was paced by yet another big night from big man DeAndre Ayton who finished with 16 points and 17 rebounds. Meanwhile, Devin Booker added 22 points and seven boards of his own. After falling in Game 5, the Suns refused to let the series go to a Game 7 and will now await the winner of the Atlanta Hawks-Milwaukee Bucks series.

“To do it here in L.A., with the Clippers, this is my family too,” Paul told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols during the trophy ceremony. “I gave six hard years to the Clippers. We fought hard. A lot of these fans, Billy Crystal, that’s my family. So to do it here, against a team that I got the utmost respect for, I’ll always be a Clipper. I love these fans.”

No one deserves this more than Chris Paul.
