Yea, I’m gonna be enjoying this one for a min for sureBig win for all of the CP3 haters out there.
This goes beyond Chris Paul though, he was just the latest.Up 2-0 in CP3's world is the same as down 0-3.
Yup, that looks about Suns.This goes beyond Chris Paul though, he was just the latest.
"The Phoenix Suns Are the Only Team in NBA History to Lose Back to Back 2-0 Playoff Series Leads
Not only were the Phoenix Suns the only team to do this once. They are the only team in NBA history to do this twice.
1994: PHX 2-0 lead vs. Houston (4-3 HOU) Western Conference Semis
1995: PHX 2-0 lead vs. Houston (4-3 HOU) Western Conference Semis
2021: PHX 2-0 lead vs. Milwaukee (4-2 MIL) NBA Finals
2022: PHX 2-0 lead vs. Dallas (4-3 DAL) Western Conference Semis"
They did but those Suns squads weren’t a bunch of bums either. You don’t get up 2-0 on those Rockets twice without having skillsC'mon Houston had Hakeem in his prime but the 94 finals are also still hunting me.
There's a limit to how far he can go unless he improves his shot selection and defense vastly, though. At 23 there's no reason he can't, but he has to actually do it. Because half the time he looks like JR Smith out there.Luka made it to the conference finals (and beat a #1 seed) in his 4th season. Mavs fans should be thrilled.
