The Phoenix Suns have never won an NBA Championship. They have been close, however. They won the Western Conference twice, once in 1976 and again in 1993. Now in 2021 they are one win away from going to their third NBA Final.
The Suns were built with a lot of young talented players including Devon Booker and Deandre Ayton. They didn’t have a veteran presence in the lineup. That was until they traded for veteran point guard Chris Paul.
Phoenix has stormed through the Western Conference, beating the Lakers and Jazz and are now one win away from putting the Clippers away and getting to their first final appearance in nearly 30 years.
Game five of the Western Conference Finals is back in Phoenix on Monday and it could be the end of the Clippers season, who have been playing without Kawhi Leonard.
In the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks are tied with one win apiece.
