Game 1 of an NBA playoff series can often serve as a feeling-out process between two opponents. Whatever the Phoenix Suns felt through the first three quarters of their second-round matchup with the Dallas Mavericks, it wasn’t resistance — outside of one Slovenian superstar, that is. Despite a huge night from Luka Doncic in the scoring column, the Suns led…...

Here are five keys to the Phoenix Suns' second-round matchup against the Dallas Mavericks.

Despite being the NBA’s top seed and winning a league-leading 64 games, the Phoenix Suns looked less like themselves during their first-round playoff matchup. Devin Booker’s absence for three games had a lot to do with it, but the New Orleans Pelicans tested them in that six-game series. Heading into the Western Conference semifinals, the Dallas Mavericks may be a...

The Phoenix Suns closed out the New Orleans Pelicans in Game 6 of their first-round playoff series thanks to a Chris Paul masterclass.

Mikal Bridges submitted the performance of his career in Game 5, providing a reminder of the Phoenix Suns' championship ceiling.

First things first: The Phoenix Suns aren’t winning a championship this year without a healthy Devin Booker. That much has become clear during their hard-fought first-round playoff series with the New Orleans Pelicans, which isn’t over yet by any means. But as the clock wound down in Game 5, with back-to-back dunks sending the Footprint Center into a frenzy, Mikal Bridges provided a nice reminder of this team’s championship ceiling when he plays like that. https://twitter.com/akaSD/status/1519192558261260288?s=20&t=ub0tQNzPvQ4OVCDOzd97Fg To be clear, no one is expecting the type of historically dominant two-way performance Bridges submitted Tuesday on a nightly basis. Still, finishing with a game- and playoff career-high 31 points, the Defensive Player of the Year runner-up showed yet again why he’s far…

The Phoenix Suns have three major problem areas to deal with against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Phoenix Suns are in a dogfight now, and as impossible as it seemed a week ago, their title aspirations are in serious jeopardy of being dashed in the first round. With Devin Booker sidelined by a hamstring injury since the third quarter of Game 2, the NBA’s top seed is quickly running short on viable options. They’ve lost two...

The Phoenix Suns gutted out a gritty road win in Game 3 against the New Orleans Pelicans thanks to Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton.

NEW ORLEANS — It wasn’t as convincing as the fan base probably hoped to see from the NBA’s No. 1 seed, but the Phoenix Suns took back control of their first-round playoff series Friday night.

The Phoenix Suns will rely on their experience in the uncomfortable with Devin Booker's timeline to return unclear.

NEW ORLEANS — The Phoenix Suns have dealt with injuries to key players all season long, but that didn’t stop them from winning a league-best 64 games. Without a concrete timetable for Devin Booker’s return from a Grade 1 right hamstring strain, they’ll be relying on what they learned during that time to get them through the first round of...

The Phoenix Suns are once again facing adversity after Devin Booker's hamstring injury in Game 2.

Tuesday night was a reminder of how fast a playoff series can change. Game 2 of their first-round series put the Phoenix Suns through the whole gamut of emotions. There was ecstasy, as Devin Booker singlehandedly carried the Suns with a masterful first-half performance. His 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting, including 7-of-10 from 3-point range, turned an 8-point deficit into a 5-point lead at the break. Throw in the baby dap, and even as the Pelicans made a third-quarter charge, there was reason to believe Booker would not let Phoenix lose that game. As has been the case so many times this season, it felt inevitable that it would ultimately be the Suns’ night. But then came the agony, when…

Here's a look at how the Phoenix Suns can improve at keeping the New Orleans Pelicans off the offensive glass in Game 2.

As you may have heard, the Phoenix Suns struggled with keeping the New Orleans Pelicans off the offensive glass in Game 1 of their first-round series. This is not a new area of concern for the Suns, being that it’s one of their few Achilles heels. This isn’t a new issue in this particular matchup either; as we covered in...
