In Game 5 of the Western conference semifinals in the NBA, the Phoenix Suns will host the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday at the Ball Arena in Denver. The Suns defeated the Nuggets 129-124 in Game 4 to tie up the series 2-2.
After looking like Denver was going to win the series, with the first two games having been played, the Suns came right back up to tie the series winning two games in a row. Solid performances for both Kevin Durant and Devin Booker helped the Suns take a win in Game 4, combining 72 of Phoenix’s 129 points. Durant scored 36 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, while Booker scored 36 points, 6 rebounds and 12 assists. Despite winning two games at home, worries persist, especially in light of how heavily they have relied on their superstars to bear the weight. This one will require a more evenly distributed scoring approach as well as a significantly more composed effort on the road, where they have struggled this season with a record of 19-26. Phoenix will not be able to select Chris Paul for Game 5, as he is still dealing with a groin injury that had him sidelined for Games 2,3 and 4.
