TL;DR news on Suns at December 19, 2022

While Crowder is prone to wild swings in efficiency, when he's running hot, the Suns are extremely difficult to slow down. Booker was oddly passive on the offensive end during the Suns' Game 1 victory over the Nuggets. Helped by the fact four of the Suns' five starters scored at least 20 points, Booker was able to pass some of the scoring burden onto other players. The Nuggets host the Suns in Game 3 of that series at 10 p.m. At halftime we had nine guys without a tackle." Suns forward Ben King had booted 32 goals across the first 11 games this season, but he was held goalless by returning Dockers defender Alex Pearce. The reigning MVP will have a lot of heavy lifting to do if the Denver Nuggets want to stand a chance to make it back to the Western Conference Finals, as the Phoenix Suns look near perfect right now. Chris Paul is playing at the best level of his career right now and that's terrible news for whichever team that comes across the Phoenix Suns' path. Fadeouts in the second half of seasons have become something of a trend for the Suns but Lukosius dismissed the notion that was a psychological issue for the club.
