WATCH: DeAndre Ayton & Phoenix Suns Pull Off Insane Game Winning Alley-Oop In Game 2 vs LA Clippers

The Phoenix Suns were able to pull off the greatest comeback the NBA has seen in recent years with 0.9 seconds left on the clock. After winning the first one with a 120-114 score, the Suns have snatched Game 2 as well and taken a comfortable 2-0 lead in a vital Western Conference finals. The LA Clippers are now under a pile of pressure to somehow win the next two games at least so as to tie the series.

This game that started off slow and boring became the most intense in the last quarter. Down by one basket, the Suns’ DeAndre Ayton’s alley-oop saved them from utter humiliation by the Clippers. It was game over at 104-103.

Phoenix Suns’ historic win

The Suns were able to take care of business despite not having their veteran leader Chris Paul on the court. Paul has been benched because of COVID-19 health and safety protocols. But his presence was certainly not what was missed. Devin Booker led the team incredibly with his first triple-double of his career.

He finished with 40 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists, However, this wasn’t the case for Game 2. The lead scorer was Cameron Payne instead with 29 points, while Booker only added a meager 20 points. Even DeAndre Ayton added more to the game. However, that did not make a difference to the outcome.

The LA Clippers were shorthanded themselves. Kawhi Leonard hasn’t played a single game of this series because of a knee injury. And unlike Paul George‘s stellar performance in Game 1, he had a slow start as well. It wasn’t until the last few minutes of the final quarter that he picked up the slack. He helped the Clippers take a lead in the last few seconds of the game only to be outsmarted once again.

Nobody had expected the game to turn around so quickly as it did. This isn’t the first time an alley-oop has saved the Suns. Tyson Chandler did it back in 2017 against the Memphis Grizzlies with 0.6 seconds left for the buzzer to go off. And now DeAndre Ayton has done it again.

Can they pull off a clean sweep against the Clippers?

The possibility of the Phoenix Suns eliminating the Clippers in 4 games all depends on the status of their injured players is. If Chris Paul returns amidst the series, there is hope that they can make it happen.

Unless LA forces Kawhi Leonard to toughen it up and make his return as well. Right now, the former outcome seems more likely as Paul just has to wait to be cleared to play. Whereas Kawhi could be sitting out until and unless he feels any better.

However, even without Leonard, the Clippers have been able to keep games close. So, they won’t let the Suns humiliate them with four straight wins without a fight. This statement couldn’t be more true after what we all witnessed today. So, do you think Phoenix can make it happen?
