With All-Star guard Chris Paul remaining in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, the Suns showed once again they can adjust without him in the lineup. Just as the Suns showed in their six-game first-round series against the Los Angeles Lakers when Paul was limited by an injured right shoulder, their young players provided enough reinforcements.

Suns guard Devin Booker finished with a team-leading 40 points on 15-for-29 shooting, 13 rebounds, 11 assists). Suns center Deandre Ayton (20), forward Mikal Bridges (14), forward Jae Crowder (13), guard Cam Johnson (12) and guard Cameron Payne (11) also posted double figures. Those players helped the Suns sweep the Denver Nuggets in the second round.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

The Clippers showed mixed signals on whether they could handle beginning a new playoff series only two days after eliminating the Utah Jazz in Game 6 and missing Kawhi Leonard for a third consecutive game because of an injured right knee.
