Suns Make Playoffs For First Time Since 2010 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Apr 29, 2021 5:04 am

The Phoenix Suns officially clinched a playoff birth following their 109-101 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, breaking the second-longest playoff drought in the league.


The Suns last played in the postseason in 2010.


Chris Paul lead the scoring with 28 points, with Devin Booker adding 21 in the game.


Currently the second seed in the Western Conference, the Suns trail the Jazz by one game for the top spot.


The Kings currently have the longest active playoff drought in the league.

It would be sweet to get a worst to first NBA Finals, like the 1991 MLB WS, with the worst to first young Braves team facing a worst to first Twins fronted by a 40 yr Jack Morris. Suns v Knicks 2020-21 Finals would shock the world.

That Suns team would’ve won the whole thing if Ron Artest didn’t rebound a Kobe air ball and put it back in at the buzzer.

That Suns team was not beating the Celtics in the finals.
