SISIKAPIN ni Devin Booker at ng kanyang Phoenix Suns teammates na makabawi at kunin ang 3-1 bentahe sa Game 4 ng NBA Finals ngayong araw.
Abante ang Suns sa best-of-seven championship showdown, 2-1, kontra Milwaukee Bucks, na tatangkain namang maitabla ang serye.
Kumana si Greek forward Giannis Antetokounmpo ng 41 points at kumalawit ng 13 rebounds upang pangunahan ang Bucks habang nangamote ang Suns, kung saan bumuslo lamang si Booker ng 3-of-14 para sa 10 points na kapwa playoff lows.
“Short memory. Just move on,” wika ni Booker. “Just understanding the situations you’ve been through and trusting the work you’ve put in.
“You just have to be better if you want to win the game. It’s a good pressure. These are the moments you prepare for and you train so hard for, what we’re in right now, so you have to be excited about it.”
Sisikapin ng Suns, tangan ang best road record sa NBA playoffs sa 6-3, na makontrol ang Bucks squad na may playoff-best 8-1 home mark.
“We lost. That’s the motivation,” ani Suns guard Cameron Payne. “It’s a long flight home, so we know we’ve got to come and hit them first.
“It’s a tough road, but we’ve got to get it done. We’ve just got to stay poised through the adversity.”
Naniniwala naman si Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer na reresbak si Booker.
“We’re expecting we’re going to have to be even better on him,” ani Budenholzer.
“We just got to be prepared for a really good Devin Booker going into game four.
“The better we can do on Paul and Booker, the better we can do.”
