This week on Sunny in PHX:

On this week’s episode of the Sunny in PHX Podcast, Charlie Erling and Mitch Krmpotich break down the first two games of the playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans, and then talk about the Devin Booker hamstring injury.

The Suns split the first two games of the series against the Pelicans, winning game one but taking a tough loss in game two.

Chris Paul put on an absolute show in the fourth quarter to propel the Suns to victory after a hard fought battle against the Pelicans. Paul hunted out the matchup he wanted and was able to convert on bucket after bucket to seal the game up for the Suns. The Pelicans, despite shooting poorly, were able to dominate the glass and keep tight with the Suns for the majority of the game.

In game two of the series, Devin Booker got off to an incredibly hot start, putting in 31 points while hitting tough shot after tough shot. The two teams found themselves in another tightly contested game up until the point where Devin Booker came up hobbled after straining his hamstring. The Suns looked lost after losing their leader, having troubles converting on the offensive end, and getting caught flat footed numerous times on the defensive end.

Booker will likely miss the next two games with a “mild” hamstring strain, and the Suns will require someone else to step up and get some buckets. Charlie and Mitch both expect that guy to be Cameron Johnson, so keep an eye out for him in these upcoming games.

Thanks for tuning in, and Go Suns!
