It’s safe to say that the Phoenix Suns aren’t in the best of spirits right now. Their backcourt tandem of Chris Paul and Devin Booker made that perfectly clear during the postgame presser. The Suns stars directed a pair of death stares at a reporter for a question they found rather perplexing to say the least.
Devin Booker was asked the following query:
“This is obviously a really tough loss. Devin, how frustrated are you for Chris right now?”
To which both Suns stars responded piercing looks, followed by two words a reporter never wants to hear:
Did ya’ll see the look on Chris Paul’s face, though? He looked like he was about to chew the guy’s head off. Tough to blame him for it too right after the Suns’ dispiriting loss at the hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.
From a statistical standpoint, Chris Paul and Devin Booker were exceptional in Game 5. Book finished with another 40-point performance while shooting better than 50% from the field. CP3 meanwhile tallied 21 points and 11 assists. But the numbers don’t tell the whole story, as both players figured in the crucial sequence that led to the Giannis alley-oop that sealed the game.
Devin Booker, Chris Paul, and the rest of the Suns need to regroup as they head on the road for a do-or-die Game 6. Here’s to hoping they aren’t ticked off by any questions after that one.
