The Suns went down 100-125 to the Nuggets in Game 6, which means their postseason is officially over.
Even with Kevin Durant on the team, Phoenix didn’t look dangerous at all.
Durant finished the night with 23 points, five rebounds and five assists, while Booker had just 12 points, eight rebounds and a single assist.
Kevin Durant: “It sucked. It was a bad feeling. It was embarrassing. They came out and hit us in the mouth and we couldn’t recover.”

It is the second year in a row that they have gone down to a European superstar. This time it was Nikola Jokic and last season it was Luka Doncic.
Looks like it’s back the drawing board for Phoenix. Did someone say Kyrie Irving trade?
NBA Twitter did not hold back on their assessment of the Suns. Best reactions:

Kevin Durant got his rings. He's made his money. He doesn't really care that much about winning any more.

The Suns going out like this is not surprising when you saw them playing Kevin Durant and Devin Booker 45 minutes per game in dog fights with a Clippers team missing Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
