LA Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Game 2 WCF Highlights

The first game had plenty of fireworks with the Phoenix Suns winning it 120-144. And even though Devin Booker wasn't as dominant in Game 2, the result did not change. 

The match started off slow but went down to the wire with the Suns stealing the 104-103 win from LA in under one second. 

Let's walk through how it all went down.

DeAndre Ayton to a good start

IUnlike Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton carried his form from game 1 to Game 2. In his 12 first quarter points, there was a ferocious alley-oop from Jaw Crowder and he was labeled as a human pogo stick. This helped Phoenix secure a 25-22 lead in the first quarter.

Paul George misses free throws

PG may have scored his teams last 6 points to give them a crucial 103-102 lead. But when he tanked the two freethrows with 8.2 seconds left to go on the clock, he failed to push the Suns to a point of no return and the Suns gave it back.
